Dr. Wells is brilliant, a dedicated instructor with a genuine passion for knowledge. With her help I was able to be the teachers favorite student in all of my college science courses last year. I couldn't recommend her any stronger.

German

I have known Claire for over five years. She did a rotation in my laboratory and worked as a Teaching Assistant under my direction. Claire was beloved by all the students she directed. Her most outstanding characteristic was her ability to simplify difficult complex subjects, making them fully comprehensible for students, even those with insufficient background knowledge of the field. Claire has excellent communication skills and has a caring but relaxed
personality. I highly recommend her as one of the most outstanding teaching assistants I have ever directed.
