“Ask a CLIP student about how much homework they have each night and you will quickly learn that CLIP teachers are incredibly demanding. We expect a lot of our students, and our students can expect a lot from us. We teach grammar, writing, reading, listening, speaking, culture, history, current events, idioms, study skills, immigrant rights, theater, literature and classics, just to name a few subjects. As our students work together, they learn to communicate across cultures and slowly become a second family, sharing successes and setbacks. Teaching in CLIP is immensely rewarding and I am happy to walk into my classroom every day to find students who are ready to learn. No teacher can ask for more.”

“CLIP fulfills a very real need in New York City to prepare committed English Language Learners for college. The culture of CLIP is one of high expectations and hard work. It is also a culture of mutual respect and support. The students in CLIP want to be here because they are challenged every day. Students read analytically, think critically and write for a variety of purposes and audiences. Students make connections, and discuss important issues in literature and society from both historical and contemporary perspectives. Oh, and we have a lot of fun. The fun is part of the seriousness.”
