About Caitlin

I have an engaging, compassionate, and patient tutoring style, and I believe that building confidence and improving skills is possible for any student.

I have experience helping students write and revise papers and essays of all kinds, long or short, from middle school to college-level work. I will do more than proofread your writing for typos and grammar mistakes. I can help take the intimidation factor out of writing, whether you need help with research, planning your writing, or improving the structure and flow of your essays. I can help to demystify grammar and help students build confidence in their ability to express themselves on paper.

My experience also includes tutoring geometry, algebra, and English literature. I have tutored ESL for adults and led workshops for college freshman writing classes.

Learning is an ongoing process, and each person's experience is unique. I can design personalized lessons based on individual students' needs and objectives, or I can simply offer help with homework and other assignments as needed. I look forward to helping you reach your goals!

I am located within easy walking distance of Cordley Elementary School and Lawrence High.

My educational background:
I graduated from Eastern Connecticut State University with a B.A. in English and a minor in Writing. In addition to the usual coursework in literature and writing, I have taken many courses in creative writing. As a result, I am able to bring an element of spontaneity and enjoyment to my tutoring that helps to decrease stress and make learning more fun.

Study skills and time management are essential to finding success. I can offer a variety of techniques to help with organization and time management, and I specialize in managing procrastination.

My policies:
I try to be flexible with time, and I am available at a variety of day, evening, and weekend times. I ask that if you must cancel or reschedule a tutoring appointment for a non-emergency, you do so at least 24 hours in advance.

I am available between sessions for email correspondence.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

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.

Study Skills

I currently work with students who struggle with procrastination, organization, and keeping track of assignments and due dates. In college, I also tutored freshman composition courses in which students were required to manage long-term writing projects with multiple revisions. I can teach many techniques using calendars, planners, and technology for keeping track of both large and small assignments and setting yourself up for success by planning ahead. I can also help with setting up a work space, structuring your time to take appropriate breaks and become more efficient, and even simple meditations that make it easier to start working.

Great support for our son — Caitlin is a fantastic partner in shaping our son to be an adult. She takes the time to sit down with us to discuss how we all can move forward and support each other in reaching our goals. She asks questions and waits for my son to respond letting him come up with an answer and building on his response. I love how she communicates with him. Thanks Caitlin! ...
