About Claire

Hello WyzAnt's parents and students,

My name is Claire, and I'm a resident in Los Angeles from the United Kingdom. I am a qualified teacher gaining my Post Graduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) in the Lifelong Learning Sector with Master's Credits (UK Equivalent to Teacher Certification Program) in Europe. My specialism is Drama, English and the Performing Arts.

I taught English as a Second Language (ESL) to professionals in the hospitality industry, and as a substitute teacher I taught the entire General Certificate in Secondary Education (GCSE) Curriculum. I also specialized in Advanced Level (A-Level) subjects covering age ranges 11 to 18 (US Equivalent to CAHSEE & SATS), and at Elementary level.

A devoted aunt, I love children for their curiosity, honesty and vibrance and I have recently been hired as a volunteer reader for local schools. As an educator I seek to use kinesthetic, auditory and visual methods to stimulate learning. For adult learners I aim to impart knowledge and draw out skills.

I am a creative person and a trained actress with excellent communication skills. I am qualified seamstress making clothes, curtains, bags and gifts!

If you have passion for learning and need assistance in achieving your goals then please do get in touch.

Many thanks for your consideration.
