My goal is to ensure my student will converse in French, not just claims that he or she once spoke French. The idea behind learning a language is earning the ability to practice with native speakers. My teaching goes beyond the session I spend with the student. I will provide guidance and follow-up on things the student will do between sessions, because learning should be continuous. I will also ensure that lessons offer the just right challenge. Too challenging becomes a nuisance and not challenging enough becomes a bore. You're spending hard-earned money, and I want my lessons to be worth every penny.

About Kays

My goal is for you to learn French. French can be quite tricky and it requires commitment, perseverance, and practice. Do not give up. Study hard and use everyday resources to practice. Nowadays, you can easily spend hours per week with French speakers if you take the right steps. I believe in supp

Kays made teaching a breeze and an enjoyable experience for my son who has special needs. We've had Kays teaching my son for over 3 years and my son learned so much that now he has many French friends that he speaks with them in French 80% of the time.

The reason people have "accents" is because they speak a foreign language using the grammatical and phoenetic rules of their native language. This is easily corrected and I am the one to show you how!

Mariella Susana Gunderson

I am a Spanish native speaker teacher. I hold a degree in the field of Early Childhood Education issued in my country Lima-Peru. After my graduation from The Instituto Pedagogico Nacional Monterrico, I decided to traveled to the United States and stayed since then. I worked as a pre-school and first grade teacher in a bilingual private school in Miami. I also worked as a Readiness Specialist and Quality Assurance Specialist at the Early Childhood Education (ECE) Department for a non-profit organization in Miami Lakes and West Palm Beach.

After moving to Atlanta, I started working at Tabula Rasa school as a preschool and after-school teacher at the Spanish Program for 3 years. I worked for this private school with non-Spanish native speakers children of different ages exposed to a full immersion Spanish program. It was a rewarding professional and personal experience to see how my students became fluent in ...

She's a great teacher. Very pleasant and very good sense of humor. She knows I am very busy at work and her teaching methods are catered to my needs. She continues to review the basics and makes sure I comprehend the vocabulary before we proceed. I highly recommend her.

I am a mother of two awesome boys. I am married, my first language is Spanish and my kids speak, read and write Spanish. I love to teach specially this great language. Learning Spanish is going to give you confidence and great opportunities to get a job. Spanish is 100% phonetic. Words are pronounced exactly as they are written. It is fun and it's not difficult to learn.

If you are not satisfied with the class, I will offer you a makeup class, because it is very important for me that you feel happy.
I am able to go to your convenience place for you to receive the class.

Thank you for reading my profile. It would be a pleasure to help you learn Spanish. I look forward from you.

Claudia is the best! She is patient, funny and kind in her teaching approach. And she knows her stuff. I have been trying to learn Spanish for a while now and I am finally really making progress thanks to Claudia. I highly recommend her. You won't be disappointed. You will learn how to speak Spanish!
Ryan
I have been taking lessons from Claudia for almost four months and my experience with her has been outstanding. Claudia is an excellent teacher who takes her student's goals and truly makes them her own. When I told her that my goal was to learn Spanish to a conversational level, she described to me what I would need to do in order to obtain that goal.

Here's what I think makes Claudia unique:

* Carefully planned out teaching method. She has a carefully planned out method for teaching Spanish and uses quality materials. She has garnered the best materials and supplemented them with her own. She teaches Spanish in a logical sequence where each step includes material from the previous ones. This has helped me to reinforce the concepts I learned earlier.

* My lessons with her include a mix of grammar, speaking, and listening. It's much easier for me to understand written Spanish than to understand the spoken word or to speak it myself. Claudia makes a point in each lesson to practice speaking and listening to help with this. This has probably been the biggest help to me so far.

* She provides homework customized to my level so I can practice between sessions. Sometimes the homework is an audio recording that she has recorded herself especially for me. The fact that she does this shows how much she cares about her student's success.

* Her patience. She has to be the most patient person I've ever met. Sometimes it takes a while to get a concept or to understand, but she is always happy to repeat herself or slow down. There have been more than a few sessions where she has done this a lot!

* Her encouragement. Learning a new language can be frustrating at times but Claudia is always encouraging and celebrates even the smallest progress.

It seems like there are a lot of Spanish teachers out there who know how to speak Spanish, but I think there are very few who really know how to teach it. Obviously Claudia is a native speaker of Spanish, but she is also an expert teacher. I feel fortunate to have found her and have referred other students to her. I can't recommend her highly enough!
Emily
Claudia is an excellent teacher! I was looking for someone who not only speaks Spanish but is also a dedicated teacher and Claudia is the best! She clearly has a ton of experience with teaching and is passionate about helping people to learn Spanish. I have been studying with Claudia weekly for about 6 months and I am making great progress.
