Education: BA, Psychology with a double-minor in Applied Developmental Psychology and Education & Information Studies; M.Ed, Loyola Marymount University. Tutor Experience: My love of learning and proven study techniques result in happier students with better grades. Having tutored a variety of AP classes and college-level courses, I understand the importance of establishing trusting, open communication. By creating an atmosphere of mutual respect, I encourage independent thinking and creativity. In order to alleviate the pressure of schedules bloated with homework assignments and extracurricular activities, I share time-tested organizational and stress-management skills with my students. Armed with these tools, my students experience an immediate boost in self-confidence and see their grades skyrocket. My Favorite Subjects: Mathematics, English, Psychology, Biology, and AP Exam & SAT Prep

Vanessa was a great tutor! I would likely book again. It was a helpful session. Thank you!!!
Vanessa tutored my twins girls in common core, phonics, math and spelling. She also helped my son with his physics, algebra and test preparation. She has a sweet and bright disposition which made the assignments she worked on with my kids fun. She brought her bag of games and treats to motivate my kids while breaking up the assignments. Her patience was also a huge asset in getting through tough material. I hope to use her in the future if the need arises.
