About Claire

I have been tutoring private students for 25 years, in addition to classroom experience at the high school, junior college and university levels. My background includes a graduate-level minor in K-12 education. I hold two Master's degrees and am currently enrolled in PhD level courses at Yale.

I specialize in engaging students and tailoring lessons to fit individual needs. My experience encompasses working with students who feel anxiety about math, who struggle with writing, and who can benefit from organizational and study skills.

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have been tutoring and teaching elementary and middle school students since 1988. I hold a minor in K-12 education at the Master's level from Vanderbilt University. My aim is to engage students, making learning fun, while teaching them concepts that they can retain and apply. Special subjects for students in grades 4-6: writing, reading comprehension, mathematics.

Genetics

I hold a Master of Science degree in Molecular Biology. Most of my coursework was in genetics. In addition, I have worked in genetics research in academic medicine since 2006.

ISEE

I have tutored students for the ISEE lower level, middle level, and upper level tests; these students have subsequently been accepted into competitive NYC schools. Not only do I teach content and testing strategies, I develop an individualized course of study for each student. My goal is to engage the student and capture his or her imagination, while methodically and successfully preparing them for the ISEE. This is the only standardized test in which I specialize.

Study Skills

I have been tutoring and teaching since 1988. One of my specialties in one-on-one instruction is teaching students organization, both in how to divide their work over a period of time and how to apply strategies for learning and applying information in various subjects. After careful evaluation of the individual student, I set up a study calendar and write a set of goals to meet their specific needs.
