About Claire

I have 4 years experience teaching English as a second language and English as a foreign language. I have taught elementary high school aged students as well as adults and business professionals. I have taught in USA, Chile and Australia. Additionally, I have experience teaching IELTS preparation courses as well as introductory Spanish courses. I am a native English speaker and having learning the Spanish language myself, I have a thorough understanding of the language learning process.

I work one on one with individuals or small groups to determine your language goals and targets and prepare personalized and engaging classes that suit your specific needs. I have an ESL tutor certification and a TEFL Master Diploma. I have experience teaching beginning, intermediate and advanced levels of English.

I am a fluent Spanish speaker with a Bachelor of Arts in Spanish Studies and 3 years experience living, working and traveling in South America. I have taught elementary level Spanish enrichment courses to children. Having learned the Spanish language myself, I have a deep understanding of the learning process and can thoroughly explain vocabulary, pronunciation and grammatical structures.

I look forward to working with you to reach your Spanish or English language goals in a fun and exciting way. I am open to working with all ages and language levels. Please don't hesitate to contact me for further information or to plan a tutoring session!

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.


I spent 2 years in Chile teaching IELTS preparation courses to business professionals preparing to take the IETLS exam. I am very familiar with the structure of the exam as well as tips, tricks and effective ways to prepare. I am also familiar with the IELTS book and CDs and have used them extensively in my classes. I have mostly worked one on one or in small groups with students preparing to take the IELTS exam.
