I'm a recent Oberlin College graduate looking to help some students gain the confidence they need to excel at school. I am the second oldest of 5 girls, and I began my tutoring career helping my younger sisters with their English and History homework. At Oberlin, I helped many students proofread their academic papers and I led study sessions in preparation for exams and tests. I understand the anxiety school can produce and the frustrations students may have when facin1g an academic challenge. I am a dedicated teacher and I want to help students succeed.

In my free time, I am a marathon runner, an equestrian, and an avid reader.

At Oberlin, I double majored in Creative Writing and History. My course of study required numerous Literature classes as well as strong language skills. I pride myself on my writing skill, and I am pursuing an MFA in writing fiction. I have loads of experience writing essays as well as proofreading other's work. In my Creative Writing workshops at Oberlin, I spent most of my time reading my fellow student's writing and critiquing it, so I am very capable of providing constructive criticism. In high school I got a perfect score on the English SAT and the Literature SAT II, as well as 5s on the AP Literature and the AP Language exams.

At the end of my time at Oberlin I received The George and Carrie G. Life Scholarship Prize for excellence in the study of American History. While in High School, I received a 5 on the AP Euro and AP American History Exam, as well as an 800 on the American History SAT II. History is my favorite subject and I love discussing historical events and trends with others. I am good at translating drier elements of history into a narrative that's easier to digest, and I'm well versed in different media and learning tools that are helpful for students.

Please contact me if you are interested in my services! I'd love to meet and discuss how I can help you succeed.

Knowledgeable, patient, and reliable tutor

Claudia is tutoring my children in English Literature and History. Both my children like her very much, she is really helpful. She also recommended some classical books for my children to read. She is an amazing tutor, communicative, knowledgeable, patient, and reliable. I really appreciate her help and would like to recommend her to other students.
