Hello there!

I am a graduate of the University of Washington, with a BA in English language and literature. I'm well-versed in British prose and poetry from the 19th and 20th centuries, have a background in English linguistics, and am an extremely knowledgeable writer of fiction and non-fiction. I maintained a high level GPA while at the UW and I've taken creative writing classes from New York University. Basically, I'm an enthusiastic literature and language geek, and I'm passionate about h...

Claire's class is very informative. She is able to recognize my pronunciation issues immediately and give very useful tips to improve it. We also discussed some interesting topics. It was a fun and satisfied experience overall.

Claire defined some CSET terms that I had confused and guided me to a book that would help me make better use of the time I have. I would definitely have her as a tutor again!
- Anna Y. from La Mirada, CA
Claire has been a great tutor helping me with an article I am working on. She?s really great at helping me frame narratives effectively with a blend of personal memoirs and essay-like commentary. Very content-focused versus getting stuck on the little details which is something I appreciate given past tutoring experiences. I?m looking forward to continuing to work with her to refine my writing!

Claire is amazing. She helped me with my resume, cover letter, and personal statement. I was in a rush and she helped in a short notice. She responded to my emails in a timely manner. I'm looking forward to working with her again.

I learned the sound of vowels and what is my weakness. she helped how I can make the exact sound and gives proper advice. And whatever you ask for, she provides the materials that I did and would be helpful. She is patient and listens to me with care.

It was a pleasure working with Claire. She did a good job reviewing my son's 12-page research paper. I appreciate her knowledge and help! Thanks.

I had two lessons with Claire so far, she is definitely a specialist in English. She taught me where to put my tongue in my mouth, she also sent me charts and other documents to help me get a better understanding of the pronunciation. Lessons are organized and structured, not jumpy or random. Her instructions are straightforward and effective(scientific). Moreover, she has a really nice personality, very communicating and nurturing, taking classes with her is a total enjoyment .( class is informative and fun) I'd love to take more classes with her down the road in the hope someday I will be as half good as Claire. I'm very lucky to find her in a sea of instructors. Copious thanks to Claire.

Claire prepared my lesson very well and we had a one hour talk which helps me improve my listening and speaking. Claire is patient and I am very happy to talk with her.

Claire is very nice and has a lot of patience, she can know my problem and help me correctly. I think she can help me with my oral English a lot. I am very glad to have Claire to be my tutor

Claire has been tutoring my two kids for about a year and both of the kids like her very much. She is patient and designs the tutoring contents based on the needs.

I have worked with Claire in linguistic phonetics for about 2 months and I have learned so much more than I ever expected. As a foreigner, I learned English writing and listening skills just fine, but I have been struggling with speaking English clearly for years. I have worked with over 10 tutors and Claire is the most accomplished and gifted tutor I have ever worked with. It's hard and frustrating to learn a second language, however, Claire was able to identify my strengths and weaknesses at our first meeting, and then tailored her teaching method to maximize my learning progress. It's amazing how she can tell what difficulties I was encountering and teach me exactly how to correct and form the sounds in my mouth. In only 2 months, I am able to identify and pronounce sounds that I have been having trouble with for decades. I just wish that I met Claire sooner. Claire is not only knowledgeable in what she does, but she is also very patient, friendly, and she truly cares about her students. I have not only learned a lot from her, but also become more confident to communicate with other people in English. I can't tell you how many times that she encouraged me when I was defeated by reminding me how far I have come from the 1st lesson. I highly recommend Claire and she is definitely the tutor you want if you are looking for a talented, accomplished and responsible tutor who also also has a lovely personality.
- Edith C. from Bellevue, WA
She is very good at explaining my unknown words by using many examples and different words. It was also very effective - she interrupted during my talking when my pronunciation was wrong. Reading an unknown book was difficult for me but I was really able to concentrate by her support. Thank you very much.
