I have seven years of experience as a writing tutor, and am comfortable tailoring lessons to a variety of learning styles or learning disabilities. I've previously worked as a leader on a high school youth exchange, and as an elementary school running coach.

I am very familiar...

Hi, I'm Clara!

I have seven years of experience as a writing tutor, and am comfortable tailoring lessons to a variety of learning styles or learning disabilities. I've previously worked as a leader on a high school youth exchange, and as an elementary school running coach.

I am very familiar with every stage of the college application process, and hope I can help make a nerve-wracking process a bit less stressful.

I'm excited to work with you!

College Counseling

I'm very familiar with the US college application process and can work with students through all stages — standardized test prep, brainstorming and editing essays, and even mock interviews. Students I've worked with have been offered admission and scholarships to schools including Amherst College, UC San Diego, and the University of Chicago. The college process can be incredibly daunting, and I'm here to help make it easier!

Spanish Conversation

We spent the time conversing in Spanish. Clara was easy to talk with and she did a great job helping the conversation to continue. She also did a great job knowing when I wanted help and when to let me work through a correction on my own. I will gladly work with Clara again.

Patient, accommodating and knowledgeable

Clara was awesome! She helped my son brainstorm, outline and write/edit his college essay. Because of Clara, my son completed a quality essay. She took the stress out of the entire situation. Patient and knowledgeable.
