About Claudia
I got my bachelor's degree in Nutrition and Dietetics in my country Colombia. Since 2006, I have been teaching. I love to be 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. 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 Sp
anish. I will do my best for my part and the rest is you.

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.

About Maria
Maria was born in Moscow, Russia. Her mother was a piano teacher and started Maria playing at 4. She studied at the legendary Moscow Conservatory with Victor Merzhanov. In the US, she won the Houston Symphony Ima Hogg Young Artist Competition and debuted with the Symphony performing Beethoven's Third Piano Concerto. She earned her Bachelor's of Music at the University of Houston.

For her Master's, she studied organ at Rice University with the world-famous teacher Clyde Holloway. She won many national competitions, including Gruenstein Memorial Organ Competition in Chicago and San Antonio Pipe Organ Competition.

The Russian School of Playing has produced some of the world's greatest pianists. This method is fun and lays down the foundation for a relaxed way of playing, which gives confidence and technical security, while enabling one
to produce beautiful "singing" tone on the piano. This helps students of all ages to take their piano-playing to new heights.

I throughly enjoy the lesson time spent with Maria as a beginner. She is an accomplished musician and transmits her passion for the piano to me as her student. She is kind and patient and totally focused on my comfort level and ensuring that I understand her approach to learning to play. I would highly recommend her to anyone interested in starting with the basics and having the enthusiasm for learning that she has for teaching.

Maria has been a joy to work with. She is kind, compassionate and patient. She is an amazing teacher and my lessons have been transformative. Every time I leave a session with Maria I am excited, rejuvenated and my skills are most certainly elevated. She makes music fun. She is also thorough and comprehensive and teaches excellent fundamentals. I would strongly recommend her to anyone interested in learning piano.

Having a wonderful time learning with Maria. I'm returning to the piano after a 20+ year hiatus, and after a couple months reacquainting my self with the piano I found Take Lessons. I chose Maria based on her experience and background. I'm excited to change not only my touch on the piano, but also in my approach to learning a new piece of music. Maria is very thorough in helping me dissect the music so I fully understand not just which keys to press, but how make music out of it. Thanks Maria!!

I love teaching, but I hate boring classes, so I always try to do different things to get the goal, which is learning. I also try to keep focus in what the student wants with class, be able to communicate, or improve grammar, writting, everyone is different, learn different and also want different things.

I am a college student, Russian & Ukrainian are my native languages. I will show my students easier ways to learn these interesting languages.

For a student without any experience we will start with the alphabet, followed by simple words and phrases. We will continue at a pace that the student is comfortable with. For an advanced learner we will figure out your level of knowledge and then jump into new useful material.

Excellent instructor. She knows her subject thoroughly and is patient helping me pronounce words correctly. Also, she came prepared for our first session and had a game plan for presenting information. I think she'll be a big help to me.
