« Caroline was a great tutor! She really helped me with my papers when I was in college. I have always had a hard time writing but she helped me understand how to write a good paper for the first time and was always there to help me edit my drafts. She is so patient and really has a knack for teaching! I don't think I would have made it through my classes without her help and guidance! »

NYU Instructor and Published Author Offering Remote Tutoring in Writing & Literature (NY/CT)

Methodology

My approach as a tutor is focused on tailoring my sessions to an individual's needs. I want to help my clients meet their goals and develop the skills they need to successfully and eloquently communicate through writing. I primarily specialize in Literature and Creative Writing, but I also have 4 years of experience tutoring across disciplines and can provide feedback and guidance on writing-based assignments in a variety of fields.

Background

I'm a writer and editor living in Connecticut. I'm a CRLA certified writing tutor with a BA in English Literature and an MFA in Creative Writing. Currently, I'm a graduate instructor in Creative Writing at New York University. I have four years of experience tutoring across disciplines and have also designed and taught my own classes for undergraduates. My own writing has appeared or is forthcoming in Narrative Magazine, Glass: A Journal of Poetry, The Pinch, and Tinderbox Poetry Journal, among other publications. I'm the author of the chapbook Lambflesh (Kelsay Books, 2019).

Caroline was a great tutor! She really helped me with my papers when I was in college. I have always had a hard time writing but she helped me understand how to write a good paper for the first time and was always there to help me edit my drafts. She is so patient and really has a knack for teaching! I don't think I would have made it through my classes without her help and guidance!

Caroline is absolutely wonderful! I've known her since high school and she has always given me sound writing advice. I was able to improve my essays and generally become a better writer. She's so kind, considerate, and knowledgeable, she'll be able to work with you no matter your comfort with writing.
