Introduction: Hi, I'm Chiara! (pronounced key-ara) Does worrying about your speaking ability prevent you from doing what you want? At Clear Lingo, we work together to take small action steps to improve your sound, clarity, and confidence so you feel and act like your true self. I offer support outside of 1:1 lessons through listening and speaking exercises to help you improve quickly. I've been teaching for eight years, and I have a master's degree in Teaching English as a Second Language from the University of San Francisco in California. My speaking lessons are for you if you are: -an immigrant in the U.S. -moving to the U.S. -studying English as a beginner or intermediate student (in your home country). -an English Language Learner (4-7 years old) who needs individualized help with phonics, reading, vocabulary, and speaking. The lessons range from 30 minutes - 60 minutes depending on the age of the student and their ability to focus online. My accent reduction coaching is for you if you experience difficulties being understood in your job or daily life. I analyze your speech and help you build new speech habits so that people can understand you clearly. *My lessons are NOT for you if you are looking for test preparation, writing, short-term classes, or classes for nearly fluent English speakers. Please send me a message if you have questions about my lessons. I look forward to meeting you!

Chiara is a wonderful teacher who can make lessons for kids feel like a game with lots of fun! She prepares many different activities to keep our 4 year old engaged. He loves his teacher and cannot wait until his next lesson. His progress is also truly amazing in such a short timeframe. I highly recommend Chiara to families looking for a brilliant English tutor for their kids.

Chiara is a good teacher, she is patient, nice and has an excellent didactic methodology to learn English very quickly. I loved taking classes with her at Berkeley Institute when I started studying English and she helped me a lot and I highly recommend her.

We have 6 years old twin girls that are English learners and have been studying with Chiara for almost a year. The girls started to study in person with Chiara and moved to online lessons with Covid 19 shelter-in-place situation. We have been very happy with Chiaras approach to teaching. She is an enthusiastic and dedicated teacher, professional yet playful with her teaching methods, very personable, and able to hold my girls attention for an extended period of time. That is quite challenging for kids of that age. Chiara is well organized and uses lesson time efficiently. She establishes a very comfortable, professional, and supportive learning environment where kids feel welcome to express their thoughts and feelings. They have learned a lot for the past year and thanks to Chiara their English becomes better and better. I couldnt recommend Chiara more!
