My name is Caitlin K. and I am a junior at George Fox University in Newberg, OR. I'm majoring in Mechanical Engineering and work hard to attain excellence in whatever I do. In high school, I was ranked 3rd in my class with a 3.99 GPA.

Since I am still in school, I know well what students are going through. I know the panic of realizing an upcoming test is going to be harder than expected and I know the frustration of trying to do the math homework and not having any clue as to what the next step should be. However, I also know how to take a deep breath, come up with a new plan for tackling the assignment that better fits my learning style, and try again.

I have been told many times that I am very good at communicating what I know in a patient and easy-to-understand way. I've had a good deal of success tutoring my peers in the past. Many of my peers come to me for help before a math test, and during my junior year of high school, I was able to help raise six people’s grades nearly eight percent in five weeks in chemistry.

I am very good at finding out how each person learns differently and adapting my teaching methods accordingly.

I am proficient in teaching math subjects such as: elementary math, pre-algebra, algebra 1, algebra 2, trigonometry and pre-calculus, as well as English grammar and composition, and some general sciences.

Algebra 1

I frequently helped my brother with his Algebra 1 homework this year, and whenever I did his grades would rise. He found my teachings very helpful and I have gotten to know the Algebra 1 work quite well.

Precalculus

I finished Calculus 1 in my senior year of high school and spent a fair amount of time helping my peers with both Calculus 1 and Pre-Calculus homework.

Prompt and professional — I was looking for a tutor to help my daughter review some algebra concepts before beginning high school this past fall. My daughter (as is typical of many teenage girls) was feeling a bit stressed about the course material and also concerned with her image. She was apprehensive about appearing weaker by admitting that she needed some extra help. In searching for a tutor, I specifically wanted a yo ...
