After moving to the Beverly Hills, CA area we noticed our son needed some extra help and instruction in his math basics, as well as looking ahead to High School and needing a strong Algebra foundation. We hired Vanessa and have been delighted with the results. After one year of working with her our son's math skills have improved greatly; his speed, accuracy, ability and confidence are a pleasure to see. We look forward to continuing with another year with Vanessa as our tutor. Her methods of teaching are an excellent way for our children to gain a solid knowledge and confidence in Math and allows them the time to really grasp the necessary principles that are not always available to them in the school year and system. Vanessa is dedicated to each of her students and provides a safe and calm learning environment.

Vanessa is a marvelous tutor. I feel so fortunate to have found her in my time of need as I was preparing to take the SAT. She was so prepared and provided detailed lesson plans at each session, so there was no room for distraction. Her organizational skills aided me tremendously in deciphering what was important to study and things that were a waste to time to review. I am happy to report that I passed the exam with a higher score than I set a goal of and was accepted to Brown University, my first choice! Thank you Vanessa for all of your help.

Hello fellow parents, I am writing in reference to the great experience I had with Vanessa. My wife and I hired her to homeschool my son as we stayed temporarily in the United States. I had no idea what to expect as we raise our son primarily in London, England. Upon meeting Vanessa, I knew she was a great fit. She was able to plan a curriculum that was similar to one of his school and the headmaster praised her work. Furthermore, being English herself she was able to relate to my child well and teach him the fundamentals without overwhelming him. Her patience and creativity were her strongest attributes. Beyond standard, she was highly intelligent and prepared. I would highly advise anyone looking to consider her as their homeschool educator.
