Looking for a reliable, patient and experienced tutor? You've come to the right place! I am a recent Cornell grad (BS Policy Analysis and Management with minors in Education, Business and Inequality Studies) who is passionate about learning and teaching. I love working with students to help them reach their potential.

ALL AGES AND LEVELS:
I have worked with students of all ages - most recently I was volunteer at an elementary school in Ithaca but have also volunteered in my high school's summer school and have worked as a teaching assistant and grader at Cornell University. I like to employ what I've learned through studies as an Education minor at Cornell to my work with students of different ages and learning levels.

EXPERIENCE AND TRAINING:
I have been trained as an SAT tutor and have experience running both one-on-one and group sessions. Having worked for multiple tutoring companies, I have been able to identify which strategies tend to work best for students and use them in my independent tutoring. I also customize sessions to individual students, as no two students learn the same way!

Though my specialty is SAT prep, I have also independently tutored high school math and worked as a grader for an intermediate college-level microeconomics course. I have assisted in a geometry summer school class and worked with ESL students from around the globe. As a college application coach I have also helped students with their college application essays.

MY APPROACH
Having tutored in multiple capacities, I have been able to rework and refine my approach over time. I tailor my lessons to each student and can pick up on preferred learning methods within the first session. I use a blend of real-life analogies, visual aids, and concrete examples to teach and reinforce learning. I welcome and encourage student feedback throughout the tutoring process.

FLEXIBLE HOURS
I have availability both weekends and evenings during the week. I am happy to work with you or your student to find a time that works best.

Awesome tutor! — My daughter met with Cayley only 4 times and improved her Math SAT scores by 80 points. Cayley gave homework after each session, which was emailed back before the next session, so she knew exactly what areas my daughter was struggling with. Highly recommend her! ...
