About Claire

I have 5 years of experience teaching English to students from many countries in Europe, South America, Asia and Africa. My students range from elementary aged children to professionals in various career fields. I have also taught Business English courses as well as IELTS and TOEFL exam preparation courses.

I teach both individual and small group classes. I use a student centered approach and personalize all of my classes according the student's interests, level, goals and desired outcomes.

I have a Bachelor of Arts in Spanish and Sociology from the University of Minnesota. I am from the United States and I spent 3 years studying and working in Chile and Australia before moving to Chicago. I am a native English speaker, fluent in Spanish and proficient in Portuguese. I have a thorough understanding of the language learning process having studied foreign languages myself.

I look forward to starting classes with you and supporting you with the resources and practice needed to achieve your language goals. Please let me know if you have any questions or if you would like to schedule your first lesson!

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.

IELTS

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.
