Last year, I was honored with a ranking in the top 250 of more than 72,000 WyzAnt tutors nationwide.
I have been tutoring and teaching Spanish in the Washington area 15+ years and worked at the United Nations (UNHCR) for six years, as translator, interpreter and teacher. As a teacher, I also participated for 4 years at FLES (Foreign Language in Elementary Schools) at Montgomery County Public Schools. I have mentored high school students AP/SAT and IB, as well as diplomats, development specialists in one-on-one training. Many of my former students are now successful professionals in Latin American countries, working with local counterparts. A large portion of my students have been highly rated in their Spanish language tests (U.S. government), required to pass and secure related jobs here with the State Department or overseas in Spanish speaking countries. Spanish lessons from my home via Skype is another possibility in case you are interested.

Teaching Spanish in other countries has been also part of my assets, because as a native Spanish speaker, I acknowledge the challenges of learning a foreign language. since I am also fluent in English, German and Italian. I volunteer as an interpreter for the National Institutes of Health (NIH).

Another great session!

Claudia did a great job helping my daughter with a high school Spanish course that she is taking. My wife, my daughter, and I are pleased with the session, the progress, etc.

Excellent and approachable

Claudia works with my daughter on a very challenging HS Spanish class. She is an excellent tutor and wonderfully approachable with my daughter. Her assistance has made a real difference in confidence and grade.

Very Helpful

Claudia has already, with just a few lessons, helped Ryan to gain aptitude in Spanish. After first lesson, he got 100% on his following test. Thank you Claudia

Esther, 9 lessons with Claudia

A wonderful teacher

Claudia is a terrific tutor--accommodating and patient. She taught me Spanish 3 and prepared me to take the exam which involved a great deal of grammar, cultural knowledge and vocabulary.

Kind, Expert Spanish Tutor

Claudia reviewed course material for the entire academic year with my son in preparation for his final exam. This review was extremely helpful with identifying areas of strength and weakness. My son felt very comfortable with Claudia and recommends her to others.

Beverly, 1 lesson with Claudia

Excellent tutor to my high school senior

My son was becoming discouraged with Spanish when he reached the AP level. He didn't feel comfortable with all of the oral participation required at that level. Claudia helped him turn things around. She quickly established a good rapport with him, and both his speaking and writing skills improved quickly. I was impressed that she conducted the sessions entirely in Spanish and got him to speak only in Spanish during their sessions. As a result, his grade drastically improved -- now a solid A. We were very lucky to find Claudia. I highly recommend her.

Cecilia, 8 lessons with Claudia

Patient and helpful

Claudia has helped my daughter with IB2 Spanish. My daughter's conversational and writing skills have greatly improved with Claudia's help; she is now even considering to continue Spanish (very unlikely before Claudia) in college.

Letitia, 17 lessons with Claudia

Excellent at explaining tricky concepts!

Claudia has done a wonderful job of keeping my son, who has memory and attention issues, caught up with the class. He is well prepared for every test!
