About Clara

I am a native Spanish speaker, but my strength as a language tutor does not rest on my bilingual ability. My ability to successfully teach my students foreign and/or second languages stems from over 10 years teaching languages abroad and domestically. Most importantly, I have combined my love of language learning and teaching in pursuit of a Master's degree from Stony Brook University with a concentration in Spanish linguistics.

Throughout my professional tutoring career, I have taught students from the age of 4 through 80. I have worked with students ranging from low to zero proficiency, to highly proficient in the target language. My domain-specific skills in language teaching allow me to efficiently target and improve areas of difficulty. I enjoy analyzing grammar in depth and helping students find patterns and the logic behind language structures. I equally enjoy helping students focus on the art of communication without the burden of grammar.

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.

Spanish

I have an M.A. in Spanish linguistics and 15 years experience tutoring foreign languages. I have extensive experience working with students with different learning styles. I customize lessons for each student.
