About Claudia

I am a professional in the area of Product Design and Spanish Language educator.
I graduated from the Universidad de Valparaiso in Chile. With regards to Interior design, I have more than 12 years of experience in International corporate and residential fields. I have the privilege of working with two of the best Design companies in Chile.

I am an entrepreneur, missionary and educator. I have experience as a faculty member on the Interior Design faculty at "UDD" Santiago, teaching AutoCAD.
I also studied a 3 year program for "Hispanic leadership" at Princeton Theological Seminary, and I have 10 years of experience teaching Spanish language and culture at a Private High and elementary school in North NJ.
I have traveled throughout Spain and Latin America and I am able to provide the classes with real life experiences. I am convinced that all foreign language classes must include as much authentic cultural material as possible so that students may learn not just the language but its applications and meaning depending where they will travel or visit. This connection helps the student to learn and connect with another culture and learn the differences between them as well.
I would be happy to help you learn Spanish language and culture! I have taught Spanish all levels for 8 yeas and tutored to different age ranges for 2 years. I have great response in learning and measured results! Students improved their grades from day one and adults are learning faster than before with my personalized differentiation evaluation and approach. I am able to prepare effectively for The SAT Subject Test: "Spanish" and "Spanish with Listening" and for the professional "Praxis" and OPI tests, which ones I performed with "superior" results.

Summarizing, I have more than 10 years of experience in the field of education. And trained for leadership with a strong ethic work. I have a certification on AutoCAD by Comgrap -Autodesk agency. I am an active user of AutoCAD for more than 8 years, and I've used MS project, Photoshop, Creative Suit, Sketch up pro, and getting proficient in Revit and other software. I have five years of Drawing classes at a university, artistic and technical drawing, realistic and sketches.
I am here to help you and/or your company to succeed in your plans!

My Education as Designer included, art history, theory, use of color, form and space. Required us to draw, paint, sculpt and create realistic and abstract representations of the designs we developed. I learned a variety of techniques and the use of traditional and mixed media. Water color, tempera, oil, acrylic, pastels are some examples of the used materials. All the 5 years of study included a different artistic expression to master.

As an active Spanish teacher I studied all the materials for the test preparation and finally took the Praxis test in the subject of Spanish language with excellent results. I scored a 97% (scored 193 out of 200 where the median was 160). I used the test preparation material regularly during my teaching time at the HS since it is the same material but in a condensed form. The material I have is the one provided by the Praxis test plus my own lineup for a personalized course study.

Revit

I had a long experience with the former Architectural main software from AutoDesk, which was AutoCAD-Architecture. Studing Revit from the beginning, I realized that many concepts, although, using different menus, had a similar approach, then I had the opportunity to take the course "Architectural Commercial Design using Autodesk Revit" SDC, my experience helped me to advance quickly in its proficiency. Lastly I updated my skills with another course, more advanced, "Autodesk Revit Architecture BIM training".
Revit is a giant software that has3 different areas of attention (Architecture, Structure and MEP) I have studies in Revit (the general software that is base and includes the 3 areas, and experience in the architectural and interior design field for my personal interest and area of work, I am also integrating Revit with other softwares, for better rendering and photo realistic representations.
