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!Kristin, 10 lessons with Claudia
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.Chad, 3 lessons with Claudia
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.Renee, 17 lessons with Claudia
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!Karen, 52 lessons with Claudia
Claudia was very patient with me and helped catch up with Spanish, I'm looking forward to be tutoring with her again.Natalie, 7 lessons with Claudia
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.Alex, 17 lessons with Claudia
Just what I need!
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.Yingchu, 34 lessons with Claudia
Patient, prepared and knowledgeable - Excellent Spanish tutor!!
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.Angela, 16 lessons with Claudia
Enthusiastic, well organized tutor
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.Malcom, 35 lessons with Claudia
Very Personable, Efficient and Effective
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!Heather, 71 lessons with Claudia
