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've been teaching Spanish for six years and my students have Learned to read Spanish in one month. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to establish a firm foundation and know how to read anything in Spanish. As time goes on you’ll be able to pronounce it correctly and will learn the most important rules of grammar and pronunciation with a minimal accent. I specialize in helping my students to be fluent and capable of speaking with any Spanish speaker.
I typically use two text books (don’t worry they are not expensive), one for reading and another for grammar and practicing speaking. I have the following tools available for your lessons: I will create specific audios for you to practice listening and I will give you extra exercises for practicing those things that need to be reinforced. I will record videos with me repeating those things that you tell me you want to practice and with words that you need to practice pronunciating. I love to teach this great language. Learning Spanish is going to give you the confidence to communicate with Spanish speakers. Spanish is 100% phonetic. Words are pronounced exactly as they are written. When Spoken correctly, no matter the accent, Spanish is by far the most beautiful, romantic language. It has a melodic tone and you will be able to learn it with me as your personal teacher and I will be constantly reminding your that I am your biggest fan, and that I believe in you. I want to let you know that even if you have an accent, we Hispanic people admire you just because of the fact that you want to communicate with us and to know our culture. I am very proud of my students and one of my goals is to connect with you in order to better understand your needs for learning.

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

About Claudia C.

I got my bachelor's degree in Nutrition and Dietetics in my country Colombia. Since 2006, I have been teaching. I love being a teacher and I love Spanish. I would like to help others to learn it in an easy way and at the same time enjoy the class. I am very proud of my students specially because they want to communicate with hispanic people and they want to understand the language.

I have a lot of patience with everybody, so take your time and don’t be afraid to ask questions. As a teacher I am very passionate with my work which means I am taking this very seriously. My goal is that my students will be able to speak the language well. Many students initially come to me because they want to learn conversational Spanish so they can more easily travel in Latin America or Spain. Often times, however; they end up falling in love with the language and continuing their studies.

Most of my students have learned how to read Spanish in a month and most of my students have been able to have basic conversations in three months. . It also depends on the student’s dedication to learn Spanish. I will do my best for my part and the rest is you.

my first lesson was enlightening and taught me that this will take some time, especially at my age. But I have great motivation and desire. I am looking forward to these next few months.

Claudia is a great instructor. She is patient and kind in her teaching and makes you feel comfortable; as learning a language can very intimidating. She skillfully structures the lessons to fit your level of knowledge, and progresses you in your own time and based on how much you have learned. I am happy to have better vocabulary to talk with my grandparents, as that was my main goal!

After taking Spanish in high school and college I find myself still not able to converse as I would like to. Since working with Claudia I am closer than ever to that goal! She is kind, patient and extremely knowledgeable about the language. She not only helps me learn Spanish, but she can explain origins of many words and phrases. She dedicates herself completely to our lessons and provides materials for me to do on my own time to supplement. I've been working with Claudia for over a year now and plan to continue! She is outstanding.

Yes Claudia is great for someone who’s never spoke Spanish she takes her time with you, she teaches you pronunciation spelling breaks down verbs and nouns. And she will not leave you behind. She really truly loves what she does, not only is she a teacher but she’s a student of what she does. If I was to look for a teacher I would hope her name would come up, because she knows what she really is doing. I think her every day and enjoy having the time to learn with her, I know she has more students than me and they must be really thrilled with her as I am. I definitely would recommend Claudia Connell as a Spanish teacher.

Claudia is a fantastic teacher. She takes a balanced approach between grammar and conversation. She also works from a book, which is great for me, and provides her own material as well. Claudia does a great job at knowing when to move you ahead or spend more time working on an area you are having trouble with. I am happy I've chosen her and can see the progress already!

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!

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.

She offers lots of learning materials so that you are able to practice different skills. I am so glad that I found her. She makes learning Spanish easy! Anastasia
