Ms. Clifton taught me to elaborate on all of my ideas so that my writing can be AMAZING.

We studied and prepared for many quizzes and tests together.

This increased effort resulted in five straight ‘A’s’

in each of my subjects!

A Strengths Based Approach

“Sandra helped me deal with the obstacles of school and life. With her guidance, I earned a 97% on my English midterm–-a huge improvement from the ‘B-’ scored last year!  Sandra assisted with the composition of my essay for the Oxbridge Program, and I was accepted to study in England this summer!  As a result of coaching at the Clifton Corner, I have been inspired to have more confidence and go the extra mile!”

"The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams."
