Claire was born in London, England, and completed high school in Madison, CT. Her passion is horse-riding, and she has her own horse named Gallalee. At the University of Connecticut, she was captain of the Dressage Team, a nationally ranked horse-riding team on campus. Other than living in the UK, Claire has travelled around Europe and also South Africa, working with children to build vegetable gardens. She especially enjoys tutoring because she understands how stressful and frustrating some subjects can be: she likes working through anxieties with her students to make them feel at ease and show them they can succeed.
Test Preparation“Karina was an excellent match in every way. She knew the material cold as she is a biologist and she also knew what would be expected on the AP exam as she teaches the class. Furthermore, she was dedicated to making sure C. learned the material and was encouraging and sweet. I cannot say enough good things about Karina.”
