Navigating the landscape of independent school education with a legacy of excellence.

Meet Tiffany

It’s no surprise that Tiffany Claflin has dedicated her life to education.  It’s in her DNA. Her grandfather, the Grand Marshall at Harvard University, instilled a love of academia from as early as she could remember. 


Tiffany had the privilege of learning from outstanding teachers at The Park School, Milton Academy, and Middlebury College before receiving her Masters in Education from Leslie College. 


Upon moving to San Francisco, Tiffany immersed herself in private school education as a substitute teacher at San Francisco Day School, CAIS and FAIS before becoming a bi-lingual teacher at ABC preschool for over fourteen years. 


Now, as an educational consultant, Tiffany works cooperatively with parents to meet the needs of each busy family applying to private or independent schools in San Francisco.

"Having struggled through the kindergarten and high school application process myself, I know first hand how stressful and time consuming it can be. So, let me help you design a customized plan for your family to find the right educational fit for your child."

From choosing where to apply, to writing essays and preparing for interviews, Tiffany held our hand every step of the way. Her advice was priceless and her insider information was invaluable. Tiffany worked tirelessly behind the scenes, and in the end, we received offers from every school we applied to.  –Arjun R.
