If you select this option, WyzAnt will ask interested tutors to contact you by email if they are able to help. A maximum of five different tutors will email you and none of your personal information, including your email address, will be released.

I am a positive, cheerful, trilingual young professional with seven (7) years of experience teaching and tutoring in individual, small group, and classroom settings. I have worked with students of nearly all ages and abilities, and I tailor the structure of tutoring to student needs. Because each student is different, I usually help students and/or parents establish goals for tutoring sessions at the first session and draft a structure from those goals.

I have experience tutoring Spanish, writing and grammar, as well as study and organizational skills.

SPANISH: I am a native speaker who has studied the language and its literature formally for 12 years

AP Exams: I scored in the highest and second-highest percentiles on both Spanish language and literature AP exams, and I can help you do the same!

WRITING AND GRAMMAR: I am a certified College Reading and Learning Association tutor. I tutored extensively while in college, and I can help you polish your writing, too!

STUDY AND ORGANIZATIONAL SKILLS: I am a certified Advancement Via Individual Determination tutor, so I can help you kick up your study and organizational skills a couple notches!

I have several satisfied students and parents who would be happy to tell you about the quality of my services. Just ask!

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Music Theory

I teach all levels of music history, appreciation, and theory up to high school level. For the truly brave, I offer preparation for the AP and IB music theory exams. I did well on both exams and can help
you train for success!

Claudia’s Resources

Tutors have the ability to create educational resources and share them with the WyzAnt community. Here are some of the resources created by Claudia. View all of Claudia’s resources

Ser and estar both translate "to be," and it can take a long time to learn the nuances of the two words. However, my students shared a fun rhyme that helps them. "How you feel and where you are, always use ESTAR!"

Most students can motivated themselves to learn something for a test, but when learning a language, you have to remember and recycle tenses long after the test. But you need feedback to know you're practicing correctly, right? Get free quizzes organized by tense (below)! Best of all, you can personalize the quizzes and have them graded instantly! http://www.studyspanish.com/verbs/ 1... read more

Great Tutor! — I was relieved to find out that Claudia had spce in her schedule to tutor my son again. She did a wonderful job last year, and we have gotten off to a great start again this year. Claudia is very smart and patient. But, more importantly, she is strategic and prepares action plans based on the child's needs. I highly recommend Claudia for Spanish at any level! ...
