About Claire

I am a fifth year elementary school teacher. I am certified in Elementary Education from Washington. I have a Master's in Teaching from The Evergreen State College. I have over 70 hours of tutoring experience for Wyzant and love it more than words can express. I like to work with students on their individual goals and help them track their progress.

I love teaching and I love the concept of being able to spend more individualized time with students that tutoring has to offer. When a student finally has that moment of aha, or "I get it!" it is such a success for them. Students must be willing to work hard and put in effort. I do not "learn" for or do homework for them. However, I will give them a deeper understanding of what they are being asked to do and help them work through difficulties they may have. I look forward to working with your student.

I have spent 3 years teaching Kindergarten, 1 year teaching 1st grade, and am currently working in Pre-K. I have experience teaching in 2nd and 4th as well. These are such different grade levels, but increased academic confidence is so important at every grade level. Let me help you!

I graduated from Gonzaga University with a double BA in Business Administration (Law and Public Policy concentration) and Economics.

I teach every day and am available more openly on the weekends. If you are close to my location, I could schedule some evening hours as well. I am available to help in Elementary (K-6th) subjects. Please contact me if you feel like we would be a good fit. Thank you for taking the time to read this.

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 am certified in Elementary Education from Washington. I have earned a Master's in Teaching from The Evergreen State College. This is my fourth year teaching in an elementary school, where I have been responsible for teaching all subject areas.

Excellent Tutor

After working with Claire regularly, my kid's test score goes up almost double. Claire is very professional. She works with my kid patiently to identify his reading problems and fix them. He is now very confident in his reading comprehension.
