Console doesn't let me clear the screen after typing git log -p or git diff

When I type git log -p or git diff, I get the status in the console, then at the end of the status, it says "(END)" , instead of showing, "treehouse:-/workspace/medals$" , for the directory it stays there and when I try to type clear or anything it does nothing, So, I have to end up closing the console and it starts me all the way back over, its frustrating.

The default pager app for git diff is less. You can quit less by simply pushing the key "Q" on your keyboard. You can get help by pushing "H".
