About Claire


I'd like to help you or your child with your spoken English and English reading comprehension so you enjoy the language as much as I do. I am an accomplished writer/journalist and my teaching method uses both works of fiction and current periodicals to draw out the student by first getting his or her interest. Materials are chosen to help the student develop a vocabulary they can use for pleasure in their daily lives and or to meet academic obligations. I find the best way to help anyone make progress is to work with materials that engage the student and make them want to learn more.

I've tutored many students in English, primarily business executives for whom French or Mandarin is a native language. I am an accomplished freelance writer, and have written extensively for the New York Times, People Magazine, Art & Antiques, Crain's New York Business, Real Simple and the Wine Spectator, as well as for many specialized trade and business newspapers. I have a Bachelor of Science degree in journalism from Boston University and lived in Europe for 18 years. I am an avid reader and lover of language, and I hope to impart that to my students.
