Vanessa Ferra

English as an Additional Language (EAL) Teacher

Originally from the United States, Vanessa studied at Columbia University and graduated with a Masters in Teaching English as an Additional Language and a K-12 teaching certification.

Vanessa has worked at international schools in both New York City and in Asia in roles ranging from classroom teacher to EAL teacher and EAL coordinator.

Vanessa enjoys working with English language learners as she finds the process of acquiring a new language fascinating and extremely rewarding. To maintain an effective learning environment for her students, she keeps up with current research in language acquisition, she actively engages in professional development through attending workshops and conferences within her field.

Outside of school, Vanessa trains often with her local women’s football team and she plays in weekly games during the season. She also enjoys exploring Singapore with her husband and daughter, particularly finding new local dishes to try and fun parks to explore.
