Vanessa Rees has taught both English and Spanish for over five years and most recently with Lingo Live for two years. She’s worked with a variety of students, from young children, teenagers, to adults alike. Vanessa has a Bachelor’s of Science in Education and is working on her master’s degree in Norfolk, Virginia. She is originally from Peru.

“I have students from Japan, Mexico, Brazil, Argentina, and the United States, whom all have different cultures and learning styles. That’s why as a teacher I use many different teaching techniques -- from powerpoint presentations, reading and listening activities, vocabulary drills, picture-description, storytelling, and reading aloud just to name a few. As a teacher I mold the learning environment to meet my students’ needs and wants,” she said.

Tips for students learning a new language:

“Learning a new language while working is not easy but important. That’s why studying online is one of the best platforms I recommend for everyone in this fast paced world we live in. In addition, a second language will help you in many different aspects of your life, including your work, travels, and personal life. Learning a new language will develop your mind and spirit,” Vanessa said.
