About Cayley

Looking for a reliable, patient and experienced tutor? You've come to the right place! I am a recent Cornell grad (BS Policy Analysis and Management with minors in Education, Business and Inequality Studies) who is passionate about learning and teaching. I love working with students to help them reach their potential.

ALL AGES AND LEVELS:
I have worked with students of all ages - most recently I was volunteer at an elementary school in Ithaca but have also volunteered in my high school's summer school and have worked as a teaching assistant and grader at Cornell University. I like to employ what I've learned through studies as an Education minor at Cornell to my work with students of different ages and learning levels.

EXPERIENCE AND TRAINING:
I have been trained as an SAT tutor and have experience running both one-on-one and group sessions. Having worked for multiple tutoring companies, I have been able to identify which strategies tend to work best for students and use them in my independent tutoring. I also customize sessions to individual students, as no two students learn the same way!

Though my specialties are SAT prep and high school math, I have also independently worked as a grader for an intermediate college-level microeconomics course, assisted in a geometry summer school class at Syosset HS and worked with ESL students from around the globe. I have also worked one-on-one with students to improve writing and study skills.

MY APPROACH
Having tutored in multiple capacities, I have been able to rework and refine my approach over time. I tailor my lessons to each student and can pick up on preferred learning methods within the first session. I use a blend of real-life analogies, visual aids, and concrete examples to teach and reinforce learning. I welcome and encourage student feedback throughout the tutoring process.

FLEXIBLE HOURS
I have availability both weekends and evenings during the week. I am happy to work with you or your student to find a time that works best.

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.

The best of the best! — Cayley was a life saver for my daughter helping her get ready for the SAT. She is so patient and caring and makes sure the student understands everything before going on to something else. She also always made sure she asked my daughter what she felt she needed the most help and worked on that area first. She's just all around wonderful!! ...
