My Approach to Tutoring

I like to get to know my students and understand how they feel about learning. To learn best students must have a desire to learn, hence I enjoy making lessons fun and getting students confident and excited about studying. Through my education I have not found learning easy. I have dyslexia and often found my peers accelerating ahead of me in school. I have had to push myself and adapt my learning style to achieve results. I enjoy working with students to empower them and teaching them key study skills to succeed.

My Client Testimonials

  • ISEE
    "You have captured our imagination with your methods ; I have to confess this was very much an eye opener for me, so much so that I have been inspired to learn more about what [student] knows and doesn't, how he copes and how you go about it. "
    "Caitlin has been all around terrific. She is on time, gets right to work, and most of all has established a great relationship with my daughter. I am relieved to have such a smart and genuinely interested tutor that can interact with my daughter in a positive way that keeps her interested and motivated! I am looking forward to having her work with my son over the next few months as well."
