About Caitlin


Bio

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...

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.

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.

Knowledgeable and patient pre-algebra tutor

Caitlin worked with our child on pre-algebra. Our child felt optimistic, for the first time in months, after the session. With Caitlin's gentle encouragement, our child also acknowledged it would be beneficial to ask more questions (during class) and utilize time for nightly reviews. We look forward to future sessions. Thank you!

Caitlin A. is an excelent tutor

Caitlin is patient and able to adjust to a changing environment. My daughter was attempting to catch up with her senior class after missing several months. Caitlin was able to take the materials and develop a plan, she was able to help my daughter make a schedule and worked with her to complete it. She was flexible on the content for the day, extremely knowledgeable about the subject matter, but more importantly able to take a tough situation and make both myself and my daughter comfortable. My daughter looked forward to her time with Caitlin. Thank you Caitlin!
