Hello, I’m Kaitlyn! I am currently in my senior year of my BA degree, studying English Literature in my college’s honors program. As a student myself, I recognize how stressful and frustrating academic work can be. My goal as a tutor is to help students enjoy learning. I specialize in English literature and writing, and my approach to tutoring sessions is inspired by my year spent studying at Oxford University. In the Oxford system, each student gets personalized attention and tutoring sessions cater to individual interests and strengths while encouraging a student to deeply engage with their work. I work to replicate this method in my own teaching by encouraging the student’s curiosity and confidence and by paying attention to their specific needs instead of following a particular methodology or workbook. My tutoring experience includes both small group and one-on-one tutoring sessions at my college, where I taught academic writing and philosophy and where I was also an honors program tutor.

Watching students develop confidence and find pleasure in learning is one of my favorite parts of tutoring, and I welcome any suggestions from students and parents to help reach that goal. Please feel free to contact me with any questions you might have or to schedule a lesson!

I study English literature and language intensively for my degree, which included a year spent at one of the world’s best universities, Oxford University in England. I received scores of 4 on both the AP Literature and Composition and the AP Language and Composition exams, and my SAT reading and writing scores were in the 99th percentile. I was also a National Merit Scholarship Semifinalist. Additionally, I enjoy creative writing, have published several pieces and won a competitive creative writing scholarship for high schoolers, and have been editor for my high school and college literary magazines. My appreciation for both the academic and the creative sides of literature give me the ability to connect with all types of students and to teach
