Native Spanish Speaker at Simply Teaching Spanish
ABOUT THE INSTRUCTOR

If you're a homeschool parent with children looking to learn Spanish, look no further because you found the right place.

My classes are the most convenient and effective way to learn Spanish.

Bienvenido (Welcome)! I'm Clara. 

I was born in the beautiful country of Puerto Rico and am a bilingual native Spanish speaker who has had the pleasure of teaching Spanish to homeschool students for over ten years.

 

Besides being a Spanish teacher, I'm also a homeschool parent who knows how important it is to make learning fun and interesting. That's why I incorporate various methods of learning into each of my classes.

Whether it's playing Bingo, watching a video, engaging in fun competitions, or just conversing in Spanish, my classes aren't like other Spanish classes your student may have had in the past.

 

The difference? I pay attention to my students and know when to change things up. 

My Spanish classes are never carbon copies of each other because students aren't carbon copies of each other. 

My goal is to help students gain confidence in learning a new language by offering them a relaxed environment in which to do so. 

On a personal note, my family and friends would describe me as easygoing and a bit quirky. I believe it's my quirkiness that helps my students feel relaxed in my classes.

In fact, a student recently shared with me that, unlike his other classes, it's my laid-back attitude that helped him feel comfortable in my class.

 

I've been married to my wonderful husband for over 20 years and have two amazing sons. 

I'm a Christ-follower who enjoys teaching, gardening, designing websites, and spending time with my family and friends.

KIND WORDS FROM PARENTS & STUDENTS

"I was impressed with how quickly my son was able to translate full sentences."

"The Spanish class that Señora Stacko offers is wonderful. She worked one-on-one with my son to assure his success. I was impressed with how quickly he was able to translate full sentences after only a few months. Señora Stacko does a great job of incorporating fun games into the class! I highly recommend her Spanish class."
