About Claire

I am an enthusiastic educator specializing in reading and writing intervention strategies. I began tutoring informally in high school by editing and revising analytical and creative papers for my classmates. In college, I held a paid position as a Center for Learning Excellence Writing Center tutor. Upon graduation, I spent a year in Boston teaching children with severe autism by utilizing the principles of Applied Behavior Analysis. I am currently employed as a Reading Specialist at a local elementary school.

I work with all age demographics, ranging from grade school clients to graduate students and beyond. I have comprehensive knowledge of MLA, APA, and Turabian formatting. In addition to citation and reference editing, I also help my clients with syntactical errors, diction variance, and cohesive thesis formation. My integrative tutoring approach includes outline preparation, draft analyses, and strategies to shape how each student approaches writing. For clients working to enhance their reading comprehension, I focus on phoneme repetition and successive approximations to word recognition based on preexisting skills. I believe that the comprehension and production of language is a great gift and I strive to provide each of my clients with the ability to learn.
