About Claire

Hello all!

My name is Claire, and welcome to my page!

Let me first tell you a little about myself. Professionally I am an ESL instructor. I am TESOL/TEFL certified, and I have experience teaching students from ages 3-12 English in South Korea. I have done some private tutoring in the past, and am looking to find some new students to work with back here in the United States!

I really enjoy working with kids, and I love the challenge of making learning interesting and fun. I think learning good reading and writing skills are the building blocks to all fields of knowledge. I have experience creating my own lessons, and I am also comfortable with using your students own lessons and materials from school to help them learn. I understand how frustrating it can be for students who struggle to perform well in the classroom, or become extremely nervous when it comes time to demonstrate their knowledge on tests because I used to struggle with the same problems! With a lot of practice, and some helpful tips I was able to succeed, and even became a teacher myself!

I am so grateful to those who helped me, and I can't wait to pass on what I know in order to help others. If you have any other questions, or would like to know more about me please don't hesitate to contact me through my contact information posted on this website. I would be happy to discuss with you in detail any information about myself, or how I can help you or your student.

I look forward to hearing from you soon!
