About Claire

"Education is the kindling of a flame, not the filling of a vessel."-Socrates

I would like to help you meet your learning goals! I am a college graduate with degrees in psychology and art, and am currently pursuing my masters degree at Bay Path University. I have previously tutored in elementary, middle school, and high school language arts, writing, reading, study skills, art, and psychology. I enjoy working with all age groups, and have experience working with a variety of learning and behavioral challenges.

I am familiar with both Waldorf and Montessori education and am comfortable implementing those practices during tutoring sessions if requested.

If you would like a kind and patient tutor who loves to witness the moment of comprehension blossom upon a students face, please feel free to email me.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

ADD/ADHD

I currently work full time at a behavioral hospital where the majority of our patients have been diagnosed with ADD/ADHD. At the hospital I spend eight hours a day assisting in the classroom, guiding the patients through out their daily activities, and generally assisting them to stay on task. In addition to my hands on experience, I have a degree in psychology, which I believe lends itself to my general understanding of ADD/ADHD and the appropriate educational coping skills that go with it.

Drawing

I have a degree in studio art, with a focus of 2d mediums. I have taught art classes at a summer camp and have ran an arts program for at risk teens. I regularly participate in life drawing groups and paint in my free time.
