About Kaitlin

Hello! My name is Kaitlin. I am a recent Western Michigan University graduate. In my four years at WMU, I received a Bachelor of Arts in English: Creative Writing and completed a double minor in Psychology and Japanese. I nearly completed a third minor in Gender and Women's Studies. My cumulative GPA was a 3.6, with a 3.8 in my specific program.

I was a member of the Lee Honors College for all four years at WMU, and as part of Lee Honors College, I volunteered as a tutor at the Youth Development Center in Kalamazoo. I tutored Kalamazoo Public Schools K-12 students in all subjects (including math, science, history). My specialty is in English and Social Sciences, but I am comfortable tutoring math and science up to grade 12. Additionally, as a student at WMU, I acted as a Teaching Assistant for Dr. Gwen Tarbox's Adolescent Literature class for one semester. I helped oversee class discussions and mentored students' writing throughout this time.

In my personal life, I have conceived of and written more than five novels. I have acted as a critique partner for a multitude of other writers and published authors. I have expertise in Creative Writing, Academic Writing, Research, English Literature, Reading, Vocabulary, Editing, Revision, Proofreading.

In terms of preparing for standardized testing, I did receive a 34 in English on the ACT and am prepared to help students develop English study skills.

I tend to be a very patient, compassionate, and understanding person. My goal is to always help students reach their personal goals and develop new strengths while exercising kindness.
