Bio

My name is Kaitlin O., and I'm a 30 year old math nerd. I began tutoring when I was in National Honors Society in high school and have been doing it ever since. I’ve tutored students from middle school age all the way up to college students and have had great success with all of them.

My name is Kaitlin O., and I'm a 30 year old math nerd. I began tutoring when I was in National Honors Society in high school and have been doing it ever since. I’ve tutored students from middle school age all the way up to college students and have had great success with all of them.

In college, I tutored fellow students in math at the Learning Lab at Lincoln Land Community College. After having graduated with my Associate’s in Mathematics and studied secondary education, I went on to the University of Illinois at Springfield where I took courses in adolescent psychology and education. During my time at UIS I participated in the Concert Band and played the euphonium. In 2010, I was recognized for my work with the Better Bag Project and my engaged citizenship at UIS. During this time I had to switch from full-time student status to part-time student status due to financial circumstances. I never stopped pursuing my degree though, and finally finished my B.A. in mathematics in December 2014.

I tutored on and off during my entire college career, both to help fund my education and for fun! I enjoyed tutoring from the moment I started back when I was only 17, and I enjoy it even more now that I can impart knowledge on to the next generation. I prefer the learning experience to be one of exploration and discovery and have found that the most significant learning experiences come from when students acquire the answers themselves.

I am available nearly every day from 10am to 10pm, with the exception of a few hours here and there where I am called to substitute teach at district 186 in Springfield. I am also available for both in-person and online tutoring. I am also willing to travel within the Springfield, IL area to meet students. I do have a two hour cancellation policy and reserve the right to charge for short notice cancellations.

I have been a tutor with Wyzant since February 2015 and have been the top ranked tutor in mathematics for the Springfield area. Please contact me about any questions you may have. I look forward to working with you and helping you reach your goals!

Great tutor!

Kaitlin was able to meet with my son on very short notice and help him prepare for a geometry test. We are looking forward to working with her more!

5 stars - always

Just a few sessions and my son's grades are improving. He has more confidence! Kaitlin goes above and beyond most tutors, not just with the subject at hand but how you will use it in the future.

Knowledgeable and Patient Tutor

Kaitlin was very nice and patient with our 2 boys age 10 and 12. They said that she made it easy for them to remember things that they didn't know. They appeared interested in learning and they are excited to return to their next lesson.
