ISE Guadalajara, Jal. Mexico
Spanish is my first language. I am from Mexico and have lived in the US since 1984. I have always enjoyed teaching, and I have been doing it for over 30 years. I was only 17 years old when I started my first part-time position as a teacher, teaching various adult classes in Guadalajara, Mexico.
I have extensive experience teaching beginner, intermediate, advanced, and conversational Spanish to adults, teens, and younger children, in both group settings and private tutoring. My classes are fun, engaging, and geared to help my students learn fast. For private students, I customize my lessons according to each of my students’ learning style and individual needs. My students’ confidence and grades improve greatly after just a few private lessons.
My teaching experience in the US includes teaching Spanish at HCC (Houston Community College – Continuing Education), home schooling my daughters since 1997, and teaching Spanish and Latin in home school classes, as well as private tutoring to executives and elementary, middle, and high school students. I continue teaching my husband and daughters to speak Spanish correctly and I don't let them get away with mispronunciations! As a matter of fact, on many occasions, my husband has been asked if he is from South America!
Your success motivates me! If you desire to learn to speak and pronounce Spanish correctly, I'm here to help!

I have had the pleasure of working with Claudia for the past couple months with tutoring in both Spanish as well as ESL. She teaches two classes for me at my place of business to create a better relationship between employees and break down the borders so all associates can communicate better with each other. From the very first class, I have been impressed with Claudia’s professionalism as well as the amount of care she puts in to each and every student. I have about 8 students in the ESL class and 4 in the Spanish class. Claudia has always been very attentive to their specific needs while also engaging the entire class. You can tell by the way she teaches how passionate she is about what she does and it really shows in the student’s faces as they walk out of the classroom. She has a great heart and is always willing to go at the pace the students set. I could not be happier about having Claudia as our tutor. I am so thankful that we were able to find someone as amazing as her!
She has started our lessons by teaching the foundation basics of the Spanish language. Intent on teaching me how to read, write and speak the language correctly. She seems to care and tries her best to tailor her sessions to meet my specific needs and goals. I'm very pleased with her as my tutor.
Claudia is a great tutor for both beginners and advanced students. She is very patient and kind. You can tell she loves what she does. She teaches a great mix of conversational tools with grammar. It keeps the student moving forward speaking correctly. I highly recommend her.
Claudia has worked with my sophomore son, taking Spanish II, for approximately 6 months. During this time his grade has improved a letter grade!
Claudia is always professional, timely and has been so accommodating when helping to prepare for tests and finals! My son enjoys working with Claudia and has told me how much he thinks her help has improved his grade and understanding of Spanish. Claudia is very organized and is quick to get my son focused.
Claudia is an outstanding tutor and is now helping my daughter with beginning Spanish!
Claudia was very patient with me and helped catch up with Spanish, I'm looking forward to be tutoring with her again.
Claudia was my first instructor through WyzAnt, and has been amazing from day one. Easy to reach, schedule, and work with. She is patient, but also pushes me to be a more fluent student. She has a wonderful way of explaining things, and mixing in just enough Spanish/English to help you learn without overloading you. I would recommend her to anyone looking to learn Spanish at any age.
I am a mature adult learner who decided to have a private tutor after years of unsuccessful approaches of learning Spanish. Claudia respects and understands my goals and needs. She works with me at my own pace but also challenges me. She is always punctual, patient, and professional. I only had a few lessons with her and enjoy the experiences tremendously.
Claudia has tutored my son weekly since the beginning of this semester for Spanish II. She is reliable and patient. On one occasion he could not access his book on his tablet, and she filled in with activities and helped him prepare for his test. She has a variety of strategies to help the student understand, and she always brings tools with her to aid in teaching. He has improved his average by a letter grade in a subject that is not easy for him. She has made all the difference for my son this semester, and although he was not crazy about the idea of having a Spanish tutor every week in the beginning, I think he now looks forward to his weekly tutoring.
Claudia is both enthusiastic and very organized. She is of course also very knowledgeable about Spanish. She is punctual and has a plan for each session, while still being flexible enough to adjust if you want to take the lesson in a different direction. I am an adult learning Spanish for myself, and I have found her tutoring to be very helpful.
My son absolutely loves working with Senora Claudia. In just two sessions, he has fallen in love with the language and proactively does his homework every day. I could not be more pleased. Muchas gracias!
Claudia is from the Jalisco area of Mexico. I have spent quite a bit of time in Latin America, and believe me, there are differences in grammar, usage, etc., in the various countries. My wife and I plan to move to the Lake Chapala (Jalisco) area in the spring. Claudia is the perfect instructor for us.
Claudia is an excellent tutor. She is very professional, enthusiastic, and organized. She has been teaching introductory Spanish to our two children starting this summer (2013). She uses a variety of ways to make lessons interesting and effective and the children love it. They are always looking forward to weekly lessons with her. They even start talking with each other in Spanish... Absolutely recommended!
Claudia is very professional and thorough in her tutoring sessions. She has been working with my two daughters over the course of the summer and keeps them focused and on track for the two hour duration of their lessons. But more importantly, my girls have not only improved their ability to speak Spanish, but they are also enthusiastic about learning a new language. I recommend Claudia without reservation.
Claudia is a great English tutor. She keeps the conversation and exercises at exactly the right level to help me improve. She is very patient, kind, and strives to identify my strengths and we work on my weaknesses. She provided me lots of practice material and would go through my answers before the day of class. I look forward to each lesson with her. Thank you, Claudia.
I really recommend Claudia as a ESL teacher. She is really patient and supportive, I've been taking ESL lesson for a long time but never got confidence with speaking, with Claudia it was the first time I felt I improved my confidence in the language. She never pushed me too much or made me feel I couldn't speak English. Thank you Claudia!
I have been working with Mrs. Claudia for a few weeks now and she has been awesome! Very patient and calming personality! I'm very excited to have found a Spanish tutor like Mrs. Claudia!
I only had three sessions with Ms. Claudia so far, but we've already covered basics, some grammar, and about 70 vocabulary words. An hour goes by really fast. She has many exercises that help you memorizing vocabulary and pronunciation. She is very patient, organized, enthusiastic, professional, and always on time. I'd recommend her to my friends and I'm looking forward to having many more sessions with her. She is the best Spanish tutor!!
I am a teacher here in Houston and Claudia is helping me gain proficiency in the Spanish language. I highly recommend Claudia! She is a skilled educator and she has a kind and positive personality. I couldn't have asked to find a better Spanish teacher!
I must admit that before we first met, I was a little nervous to begin working with someone in my home. I have never tried anything like this before; however, the moment Claudia greeted me at my door, I was put at ease! She is incredibly easy to follow and a pleasure to work with during lessons. Most importantly, she makes sure that lessons proceed with a natural flow and at an appropriate pace so that I am challenged, but successful. She is very in tune with my needs and is helping me to improve my Spanish by leaps and bounds! I would recommend Claudia to any of my personal students or colleagues at school and I recommend her to you as well.
Great tutor. I would recommend her to anyone. Very patient. She worked very well with my 10 year old daughter.
Claudia is a great tutor! Very professional, organized, and always on time. Claudia always has supplemental vocabulary as well as the lesson plan in the book. Very flexible in helping you reach your specific goals for Spanish. As my girlfriend is a nurse, she was able to tailor her sessions toward Spanish in the medical profession, while at the same time teaching me Spanish for business. A native speaker, she has been able to help me quite a bit with my pronunciation, as well as demonstrating the difference in accents from around the Spanish speaking world. Would definitely recommend!
Claudia es excelente! She has helped me so much. I needed someone to practice with it, and she has done that, and more. She is a very structured, and organized person. She implements new ways to make the lesson fun, and relevant. One word summary: Excellent!
My son needed help with his spanish and we are very happy we got Ms. Claudia to work with him. He is a lot more confident with the language and his scores in school have improved. He feels that Ms. Claudia is very patient with him, and she also works very hard to help him to be successful. He will be doing spanish again next year, and I will definitely use Ms. Claudia again if we need to.
We have been very pleased with Claudia's services. She is patient, organized, knowledgeable, and put our five year old at ease from the first session. She is always equipped with a variety of materials in order to keep the student engaged. She assesses where the student is and begins working with them on their current level. We are confident that with Claudia's help, our son will learn Spanish and eventually become bilingual, which we believe will be an asset in his future success. My husband and I know we have chosen the best tutor, and look forward to a long and satisfying working relationship.
Claudia ia a wonderful teacher. She is very kind, very patient, and very understanding. She has been helping my nephew and niece who came to America three months ago. They love her and they have learned a lot from her. We wish her a lot of success and thank her for her hard work.
Claudia is an excellent tutor!! She has been helping me with an online college Spanish course that I am taking. I couldn't do it without her since I am trying to teach myself some very difficult material. She is very helpful, friendly, and always on time!
With the help of Claudia's tutoring our son raised his grade from Spanish I to Spanish II one full letter.
Claudia has been a private tutor for two of my children more than a year. She is patient, systematic, and progressive based on students' own degree of mastering. She is always prepared and prompt on each lesson. My children have been enjoying her lectures as well as improved their Spanish skills a lot. She has encouraged
my children to open eyes for another language and culture. I will highly recommend her to anyone.
I discovered Claudia on the Wyzant website and she has far succeeded my expectations. I am an adult who needed to speak, read and write Spanish. She has been very thorough with me and takes her time explaining things.
I would recommend her or anyone who needs an in home tutor. Soft spoken and always eager to please. If you have a child or adult that needs to learn she would be my number one pick!!!
Claudia is a wonderful tutor, very understanding and always very responsive. I started taking Spanish classes with Claudia about 3 months ago and didn't know a word in Spanish. I started reading in Spanish already after our 2nd class and now I can keep a basic conversation for about 15-20 minutes. I like Claudia's personal attitude to the student and feel very at ease with her. I would recommend Claudia as a great teacher to everyone who is willing to start learning Spanish!
I really enjoy my Spanish lessons and I feel my Spanish has improved so much over the last few months. I think my motivation to learn is her motivation to teach me.
My kids were very reluctant to learn Spanish but Claudia has made her lessons extremely fun for them! She has well planned lessons including songs and games to keep the kids challenged and motivated. I highly recommend Claudia!
Our son has really enjoyed working with Claudia! He's already learned quite a bit in the past couple of months! She is always prompt, pleasant and ready to go as soon as she walks in the door! She is patient with him and very encouraging! We are glad that we found her!
Claudia and Maddie had a wonderful first lesson. I can tell she is very good and extremely patient with her students. We are certain this will be very much worth the effort and expense. Thank you Claudia we can't wait for next week!!!
My daughter disliked the study of Spanish before working with Claudia. Now she looks forward to the tutoring sessions and has a much better understanding of the material. Claudia is extremely professional and organized, dependable and easy to work with!
Meeting with Claudia has helped me with my understanding of Spanish... I feel like I am more prepared in class and I'm more confident with my pronunciation.
We have been very happy with our tutor and really want to keep her for the next school year.
We are going to take a two-month break and begin again in August, and would like to use Claudia again.
We are happy with the way Claudia teaches and we would like to continue with her lessons. She is punctual and she always informs us ahead if there is any change in the schedule. She is patient. She always takes time to make sure to finish her discussion, even though it would take a few more minutes beyond the hour.
Overall, we are very happy with her and we would highly recommend her.
Neda and Sara
We are enjoying our lessons with Claudia. My kids like her very much and are already showing off their new skills.
It was a complete pleasure meeting Mr. Claudia. My husband and I were very happy with her approach and technique of tutoring. Cody, was very excited about her as well following the tutoring session. We look forward to working with her, and would hope that she will continue as his spanish tutor through the end of his sophmore year.
Definitely a 5 star tutor and personality to match.
Thank you WyzAnt, and Ms. Claudia for helping us out.
Ruth, Abraham & Cody
Claudia is a wonderful teacher. She is very patient and has a great sense of humor. I feel I have learned a lot in such a short time. I thoroughly enjoy my lessons and look forward to next week. She only goes at the pace I want and doesn't rush me at all. Excellent tutor!
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.
