About Claire

Completed Ph.D in piano pedagogy - music education at Florida State University
Currently, I am piano faculty at the University of the Incarnate Word. I maintain an active career as a recitalist, chamber musician, and studio teacher.

My teaching philosophy is to grow a sense of music appreciation, while at the same time to teach students about the playing techniques. In addition, I try to develop students’ interests by organizing piano ensemble concerts, partnership lessons, and incorporating a wide rage of activities, events, and performances.

"Claire has been my daughter Sophia’s piano teacher for the past two years. Sophia was five years old and had no previous instruction when she started taking lessons from Claire. My husband and I have been very pleased with the progress Sophia has made under Claire’s guidance, and we are equally pleased that Sophia has enjoyed the experience so thoroughly."

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

I am a native Chinese speaker. I have been living in USA for 7 years now, and have tutored in Chinese as well as music. I have helped students and friends learn to speak Chinese language, write Chinese characters and essay, understand Chinese literature,and understand historical events.
