Bio

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

I've been an English & Chinese Tutor for 10+ years, SAT & TOEFL Tutor 7+ 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.

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

I've been an English & Chinese Tutor for 10+ years, SAT & TOEFL Tutor 7+ 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 including Northeastern University, George Washington University, NYU, 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!

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.

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.

Friendly, patient and knowledgable

My daughter had Clara for a reading lesson preparing for SAT. She has brought attention to vocab needed to know and how to understand certain wording and what to look for in choosing a correct answer. She has given a her a good foundation for the Reading part of the SAT. We look forward to the next lesson.

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. I'm very happy to have an enthusiastic and knowledgable instructor!

Excellent tutor, highly recommended

I’m so glad to have Clara as my tutor. She is not only good at what she teaches, but also patient and nice enough to be your good friend. I should say her teaching methodology, studying material and supplemental information all fit me well. I find it very easy and comfortable to be in her class and learn how to make progress every day with the tips she provides to succeed. I’m so confident in the coming test and I would go back to her for help in the future when needed.

Clara is extremely professional and knowledgeable. She knew TOEFL test very well and found my niece’s weak points in study quickly and develop ways to help her improve her English skills. My niece has learned a great deal during her tutoring sessions. I highly recommend Clara.

Very good foundational Chinese training

My daughter is 3rd year Chinese student and needed help getting to that higher level. Clara really helped with the fundamentals and especially improved her speaking skills. My daughter enjoys Clara's style and way of communicating. I highly recommend Clara!
