ExperienceI have 10 years tutoring experience and 2 years teaching experience. I love teaching and have always loved math and science, but I know these subjects can be daunting for other students. My approach to tutoring is to provide my students with the tools they need for problem solving and not memorization. I am patient, caring, accessible, and encouraging to my students. I push my students to work hard and aim for my students to build confidence in the subject.

Caitlin has tutored both our high school-going daughters for the past year. She has a knack for guiding the discussion, building understanding and drawing links to other concepts. We are lucky to have Caitlin teach our daughter’s math, chemistry and prepare for SAT’s as well. She makes sure her students have a basic understanding of the topic before moving on to more advanced level. Caitlin sets the agenda carefully and then gives the students undivided attention. She quickly figures out the student’s strengths and weaknesses and proceeds accordingly. Her interaction with our daughters is excellent. She is caring and enjoys seeing her students succeed. We plan to tutor our daughters with Caitlin right through their high school years. She is an excellent guide and mentor. Thank you Caitlin!
I highly recommend Caitlin for tutoring in chemistry. She definitely knows what she's talking about and she has helped me with every sort of problem I've had. I'm really pleased with how she is able to explain the problems and how she is willing to go over a problem with me until I fully get it. On top of that, she is always on time and flexible with any schedule changes. I would recommend her to anyone.
Caitlin was great! Very knowledgable in Chemistry and trigonometry. Just in one hour she was able to clarify quite a few things my daughter was stumped on in both subjects.
Caitlin is just such a wonderful tutor. she is very understanding as to how students work which is at their own pace. she has tutored my daughter several times in chemistry and trigonometry. My daughter has a better concept in both of those subjects now and has learned the a lot more while tutoring with Cailtlin and my daughter plans on continuing to be tutored by her. Caitlin is very patient and understanding plus very flexible with my schedule.
I have been meeting with Caitlin periodically this past year to prepare for my General Chemistry tests. She has done a great job of explaining difficult concepts and of helping me work through challenging problems. She always makes sure I understand the current subject/topic before we move on, is prompt in responding to emails, and is flexible with scheduling. I would definitely recommend contacting her.
I am very happy with Caitlin. She got back to me the same day that I contacted her and was able to work me into her schedule. My son has seen her twice now and has a better understanding of Chemistry. Thanks Caitlin!
Caitlin was great. I liked the way she explained the questions I had. I definitely recommend her!
Responded the same day I contacted her. Prompt.Patient.Encouraging. Good grasp of material and easy to understand explanations.
Caitlin tutors AP Chemistry for my son who is going to be a Junior in August 2011. She knows the subject well and explains clearly to my son so that he gets a better understanding. She is prepared prior to the start of the tutoring session. She responds emails quickly and is flexible in scheduling.
