Middlebury College, Middlebury VT (Linguistics, Spanish)
La Universidad de la República, Montevideo Uruguay (Graduate Coursework)
I am a super fun woman and full-time professional tutor, who delights in teaching Spanish and ESL! I have had great success helping students improve their grades by 1-3 letter grades. I have also assisted students in passing BVSD online courses with flying colors.
I create many of my own teaching materials, and so even students who have been struggling in the classroom find that my supplementary lessons and resources are exactly what they need to understand a challenging concept and get over their fears.
I am very creative, and I always seek ways to bring the language alive whenever I am working with a language learner. For example, I enjoy using music/lyrics to give students a fun way to experience the language in a natural context.
I have a B.A. in linguistics and Spanish from Middlebury College in VT.
As an undergrad, I studied Spanish linguistics at the local university in Montevideo, Uruguay, where I lived for a year. My time in Uruguay gives me a passion for South American culture, as well as a great deal of experience to provide cultural context for students learning the Spanish language.
I have several years of experience tutoring speaking, reading and writing in both Spanish and English. I am also TESOL certified and have taught English to speakers of other languages both in the U.S., as well as abroad.
I have a knack for helping students feel comfortable and inspired. Whether you want to improve your grades in school, or learn Spanish for your job or upcoming trip, I look forward to getting to know you and working together.

Caitlin has an enthusiasm for teaching and did a nice job this first session in figuring out what my daughter knows and doesn't know. We look forward to more sessions.
Caitlin is very patient and supportive in my quest to learn Spanish. I know I will learn a lot from her!
Today was our first lesson with Caitlin. My son has Asperger's Syndrome and is very shy around new people, but Caitlin's warm demeanor and friendly personality won him over. He has had instructors in the past to whom he never wanted see or speak again after the first lesson, but after she left he said, "I really like her; she's a good teacher." I was so happy that we found someone so special, and so able to work with a student who can be difficult. The teaching materials are thorough and professional, and Caitlin is an excellent facilitator of the lesson. I highly, highly recommend her!!
Caitlin has been teaching my daughter. Here is a review she told me:
"The lesson went very well. Caitlin supported me when I was working on the activities in the book, and taught me new words. She did not rush me by teaching me many new things at a time, so I didn’t have to worry about getting confused. The speaking practice was very helpful. It was hard, but I really enjoyed the lesson! Time flew by so fast!"
I highly recommend Caitlin if you are looking for a Spanish teacher.
Update by my daughter after the three months of lessons:
I had awesome Spanish lessons with Caitlin this summer. Each week, we went over some questions I encountered while I was studying by myself, worked on some worksheets of new grammar rules, listened to Spanish songs, read cartoons, etc. Every activity we did was so fun that time flew by so fast. My favorite was the songs. It is hard to understand the meaning, but Caitlin explained each line in detail. Now, Shakira is my favorite singer!
I also liked the way she explained me new grammar. There are some rules that we do not have in English, so she taught me the clues to tell the difference, and gave me examples. She also told me that the rules aren't always clear, which made me less worried when I worked on my own.
We did not just study during lessons. She is such a fun-loving person that we talked and laughed a lot too! I loved her lessons so much that I got excited before every lesson.
My goal for this summer was to finish Spanish 2 on my own, which seemed extremely difficult, since it is usually done by spending a whole year. However, Caitlin's Spanish lessons made it possible and I was able to finish Spanish 2 in only three months!
I am very grateful for everything she has done to support me.
I highly recommend Caitlin as your Spanish tutor. I would definitely like to take her classes next summer again!
One of her best attributes is that she listens to her student and is very patient! She is always on time, and adapts to your needs, and design the classes according to your needs! Every class helps you enhance your deficiencies! Basically she is a great tutor! Thanks, Caitlin!
My daughter is taking Spanish 2 online and had been struggling. We were not only having trouble with the coursework but also with glitches in the online course itself. After a couple of weeks, Caitlin had my daughter on a much better path to being caught up and helped get the glitches in the system worked out. She has been indispensable and I would highly recommend her to anyone needing instruction with all levels of Spanish.
Caitlin is doing a great job keeping my son focused (which is difficult). His reading has already improved after just the last few lessons!
In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
