About Caitlin

Hello! My name is Cait, and I'm a tutor with experience as an art student, art teacher, and freelance artist!

I'm very well acquainted with junior high school to undergraduate aged arts applications, and I want to help you succeed in this competitive arena we call the admissions process.

I will proofread your application, help you select your best artwork, suggest changes to help you make your existing work stand out, and even give you assignments with restrictions on what you can make in order to push you outside of your boundaries.

Let's get to it!

Need help with your high school and college undergrad applications?

Not only am I a young artist with a finger to the pulse of what schools are looking for, but I'm also an excellent writer. I would love to help you build and proofread your essay or other application.

As a fine art tutor, I have worked with students to make their junior high, high school, and undergraduate arts portfolio applications really shine.

I have studied art throughout my education, on virtually every level- and all at schools that require a portfolio, audition, and essay.

I studied at the Maryland Institute College of Art for a year, and am currently studying at the School of Visual Arts.

In elementary school, I applied to and was given a full scholarship to the Brooklyn Museum of Art's program. I studied there for 8 years.

Afterwards, I attended competitive magnet arts school I.S. 61... and then moved on to my first choice high school, Laguardia Arts.

Would you like to learn more about the things I can help you with? Feel free to contact me, whether you are a parent, a younger student, or an adult in pursuit of a something new.

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.

Drawing

I am currently pursuing a BFA in illustration at the School of Visual Arts, and have 3 years under my belt.

I have studied drawing and illustration throughout my education. I attended the Brooklyn Museum of Art's art classes for 8 years, the Snug Harbor Art Lab for 2 summers, and majored in fine arts at Laguardia High School.

I teach through both correction and instruction; I analyze what a student needs based on the writing or art that they have done, and then we improve on that as a team.

Photography

I studied photography at the Brooklyn Museum of Art, the Alice Austen House, and with New York Film Academy.

I have participated in film shoots, music video shoots, and I photograph my own reference images for my personal work.

I aim to use my skills in composition and editing to assist students with photography of their work for their portfolios.
