About Claire

My name is Claire M. and I am a semi-retired English teacher. I have taught developmental English to college students, EFL to Colombian students in Barranquilla and ESL to undergraduate students, to graduate students and to professors. My specialties are grammar and writing. I worked in this field, tutoring but mostly teaching, for over fifteen years. I enjoy working one on one because the student and I can concentrate on what he or she needs to achieve his life or academic roles without having to spend time on other matters.
I have also tutored and taught elementary students in all subjects. I started with my children which made me enjoy working with kids who like learning when it isn't filled with pressure. In addition, I have worked with special needs children whose pace is much slower. Working with children involves appreciating their styles of learning and not following a preset assumption of how they learn. There is a variety of methods to achieve the same ends.

I am an outstanding English tutor because I have a great knowledge of the English language, an understanding of what high schools and universities require of students and an ability to quickly assess what students need to achieve their goals.

If you are in need of an English or elementary subject tutor, please contact me. I am available in the evenings.
