Founder, LSAT Program Director, Chief Learning Officer
Clay Daniel is a graduate of Harvard University and Dallas Theological Seminary. After five years as a campus minister working with Yale students, he returned to education in 2008. He founded Clayborne in 2009 because he saw the promise of a powerful recipe: one part one-to-one test preparation; one part flexible program; one part responsive team of highly trained tutors. Also, he just really loves these tests; it’s like Christmas every time a new one is released. He also loves coaching students as they realize their dreams. In his free time, Clay enjoys spending time with his wife and two kids, playing and watching sports, and playing Scrabble, for which he has a national ranking (translation: he has spent way too much time playing Scrabble).
Clay’s test preparation credentials include:
• 15+ years preparing students for the SSAT, SAT, ACT, GRE, GMAT, and LSAT
• Perfect GRE score (old GRE twice; new GRE once)
• Perfect GMAT score
• Perfect SAT 1600 (800 V, 800 M)
• Perfect ACT 36 (36E, 36M, 36R, 36S)
• 178 LSAT score (99th percentile)
• CLT 117
Clay, as one long interested in classical education, was thrilled to discover the Classic Learning Test (CLT) and became for a time one of its question editors. The CLT unites his interest in the great books with his curiosity about the puzzle of a standardized test. Clay is delighted to serve as our CLT director and lead tutor.
