About Clara

My name is Clara and I speak both Mandarin and English fluently.

I've been an English & Chinese Tutor for 8+ years, SAT & TOEFL Tutor 5+ years. My students cover from English beginners to college students. I'm glad to see that one of my students improved her SAT reading score by 200 (in the November 2015 test) and a junior girl was enrolled by Linden Hall. High school students made their entry into colleges such as Rutgers and PSU etc.

Certification is National Mandarin Test Class B - First.
Honors received include National Cross-Straits Interpretation Competition Third Prize 15th Hubei Translation and Interpretation Competition First Prize.

I believe in the combination of comprehensive teaching and effective learning by oneself. If you would like to find a tutor who is not only great at language (test) tutoring, but also nice enough to be your friend and your guide to college and graduate study & life, I'm the one!

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.

English major student in college;
reading scores always high in the English tests I took;
have my own way to guide you through the passage and grasp the points.

SAT Reading

As an English major, I've developed different and effective learning methods & tips for students. I have been studying and living in U.S.A. for 4+ years, and tutoring for 6+ years. On Nov, 2015 I helped a student improved SAT Reading by 200. I'm so fulfilled to see my students enjoy my tutoring!

SAT Writing

I believe reading and learning from daily life could do great help in writing. I also believe with strong grammatical knowledge and valuable testing tips, above all 4+ years studying and living experience in U.S.A., I'm the one of leading students onto the way of effective SAT writing. After good preparations and practices you will find writing is not as hard as you think.


TOEFL score is vital to a successful college application. I do believe my English major background and personal TOEFL & GRE testing experience as well as four plus years of living and tutoring in U.S.A. will make it easy for you to find me a good tutor. I've received very positive feedback from both students and parents for TOEFL tutoring and I'd very much like to help you with any TOFEL questions and achieve improvement.


Vocabulary is always important in any kind of language tests. Nevertheless practice not necessarily makes perfect, you need different methods to memorize words and expand your vocabulary. As an English major and the winner of many English competition and contests I've developed my personal ways of learning words and I'd very much like to share them with you.
