Veronica has started teaching German to my 12yo son and 7yo daughter. She has adapted her style very well to each child. In the case of my daughter, who is less willing and often distracted, she has had to try a few things to truly engage her. I am so thankful for her perseverance.

Veronica has a relaxed, friendly and cheerful demeanor. My kids respond well to her.

Thanks, Veronica!

I am taking both German and Spanish lessons with Veronica. She is an experienced and intuitive teacher who masterfully blends conversation, grammar and vocabulary building, adapted to the student's level. She provides rich resources for study and practice, based on the latest methods of language instruction.

Veronica, taught my 9 year old son for a few weeks. She was easy to work with, always on time and extremely patient. My son loved her teaching style and he learned a lot during his few weeks with her. I would definitely use her again!

Verónica is an experienced teacher who engages you in conversation and encourages you to interact in the language while subtly taking note and reinforcing the areas you need to work on. Great teacher and very convenient format. After my first lesson, I decided to continue on a permanent basis, working on my Spanish and subsequently on my German with her. I strongly recommend Verónica as well as takelessons.com in general as an excellent way learn and improve on a foreign language.

Veronica is a very experienced teacher. She is prepared for every lesson, with materials such as handouts, white-boards and flashcards. Lessons were a combination of speaking and writing and I especially enjoyed the short dialogues we would practice, back and forth. The lessons are a good mix of repetition, revision and new material. She is kind and friendly and made me feel very welcome in her home. Her teaching style is flexible and she is very passionate about her craft! I learned so much more in her class than I ever did online. So if you are looking for a language tutor, you can't go wrong by choosing Veronica!

Hi! If you are looking for an excellent teacher to learn German, I would recommend you Veronica V. who is doubtless the best one I've ever known. With her you will learn grammar, vocabulary, phonetic and many other things as well and as fast as you want because she has got more than 30 years of experience in this branch. I had the opportunity to know her in person and I can assure you that after some months you'll see her not only as a teacher, but also as a mother who gives everything to find the best way to make you know how something works in this beautiful language. So feel free to contact her and you won't regret. Viel Glück beim Deutschlernen!!!
