Personal Description:

I graduated from Cambridge University with a BA in Linguistics (First Class Honours) and Management Studies (Upper Second Class Honours) in 2014 and went on to complete an MA in Translation Studies (English and Spanish to German) in 2015.

I now absolutely love working as a tutor and a freelance writer and translator, regularly contributing to renowned national newspapers in Austria and Germany (eg Süddeutsche Zeitung, the most widely-read German newspaper of record) and blogging for a number of international businesses.

In my free time, I work for the charity 'Art Relieves Poverty', an NGO I founded with my sister in 2011 which supports education and artistic engagement for disadvantaged children in the Philippines (check it out on **Web Address Removed**). Working as a tutor helps me to stay connected with the minds, lives and needs of children and young people, and to improve the charity's take on education.

Aside from volunteering, I love music, the arts and sports: I play the piano and sing, and I enjoy going to classical concerts, I love museums, the theatre and going to galleries, and I am crazy about outdoor sports, such as rock climbing, trail running, hiking, snowboarding, windsurfing and scuba diving.

1st Place Austrian National Philosophy Olympiad in 2011

Tutoring Experience:

I started tutoring in 2009 and have worked with dozens of wonderful students. My students have consistently achieved their desired grades and skill levels, and have gained entry into the countries most prestigious schools (including Eton and Westminster school) and universities (Cambridge, Oxford, UCL).

These are just some of the comments my previous students have made:

“Vanessa tutored my daughter for her A level English Language exam in 2013. Katie (18) learnt a lot from the 1 to 1 sessions, she really felt they helped her to understand the subject and achieve the grade she needed to gain entry to her chosen university. Vanessa was always friendly and helpful. I would really recommend her as a tutor.” – Alison Hodson

“We have had a number of tutors, but Ben (11) really likes Vanessa and is now actually looking forward to the sessions! He says he understands her better than his previous tutors and they get on incredibly well which is mainly due to the fact that Vanessa has just such a lovely personality.” – Clare Stanley

“I am delighted to see how well things are going with Vanessa. Initially I had only wanted her to help John (13) with Maths, but they have such lovely rapport going on, and she really seems deeply interested in his progress, so I’ve decided to ask her for help with English as well.” – Mike Gordon-Smith

Tutoring Approach:

As a tutor, I deeply care about every single one of my students and the measure of my success is very closely linked to their progress and satisfaction with my teaching. I build up a personal relationship with each student, which helps them to gain the confidence needed to reach their full potential and have fun along the way.

Through my personal academic career, I have found that my success was all about a structured and goal-oriented approach, as well as confidence. I appreciate everyone's differences and carefully tailor each lesson to suit each student's individual needs and personality. I work out bespoke tuition plans, based on the student's goals, the content that needs covering, deadlines, and skills such as question analysis, critical and analytical thinking, memorization and note-taking. Students are in complete control of their learning process and any questions, concerns or difficulties they have can be answered immediately and appropriately and my teaching style can be adapted at any time. It is these personalised factors that make one-to-one tuition, whether face-to-face or online, one of the most effective ways of teaching there is and a sure-fire way to reach academic goals.
