About Clara

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

I've been the English & Chinese Tutor for 8+ years, SAT & TOEFL Tutor for 5+ years. My students range from English beginners to college students. I'm glad to see that one of my students increased SAT reading score by 170 and another one was enrolled by Linden Hall. And high school students made their entry into colleges such as Rutgers and PSU etc.

My 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 methods in study. If you would like to find a tutor who is not only great at language tutoring, but also nice enough to be your friend, I'm the one!

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.

Chinese

As an English major student in the college, I passed the TME 8 (national test for major of English, grade 8) and also acquired the certificate of Mandarin Chinese level B+. I am the winner of many translation and interpretation competitions, as well as Chinese culture contests. I have 3 years of tutoring experience during college, one for Chinese and two for English. Besides tutoring, I also helped a Mandarin Chinese education institution with marketing and promotion.

English

I studied English from primary school and I majored in English for 4 college years. I passed the GRE and TOEFL and studied in America for 2 years up till now. I love English.

Reading

I'm an English major student in college, I excel at reading and always get high scores in this part of the test.

SAT Reading

As an English major student in college and English lover, I regard English as one of my favorite subjects and I do great in different kinds of English competitions. I've tutored students on SAT Reading and received positive feedback. Besides I enjoy surfing on English websites during my free time.

SAT Writing

I've tutored students on the SAT, including the reading and writing portions and received positive feedback. As an English major in college and long-time English lover, I believe my grammar mastery will help students learn how to deal with the writing part of SAT.

TOEFL

I was an English major student in the college for 4 years and gain full knowledge and skill in listening, speaking, reading, writing as well as translation and interpretation. I took both the TOEFL and GRE to apply for graduate school study in America, so I have personal experiences and ideas in this area.

Vocabulary

I read through the vocabulary book for GRE in one month and have different ways to memorize any difficult word.

Nice teacher you never have, buy one get one. LOL — I was struggling with TOEFL and I found Clara. She is bilingual and can easily recognize my advantage and disadvantage I guess because she took the same tests before and because at a similar age she is able to understand my needs in study. She answers all my questions and explains every detail. Now I'm preparing the test with the study goals we made together and I feel like I'm improving everyday ...
