Private Instruction Testimonials
“Caitlin is a fantastic teacher, who is passionate about her work, is dedicated to seeing students excel and creates an environment that is easy to work in. I am more confident in school, as well as in day-to-day speech because of the mentorship I have received from Caitlin. In fact, with Caitlin’s help, I applied to and was accepted into a Summer Abroad program in Peru. I have grown in so many ways and am grateful for her guidance.”

“Caitlin is an excellent tutor with outstanding people skills! Today was our first lesson with Caitlin. My son has Asperger’s Syndrome and is very shy around new people, but Caitlin’s warm demeanor and friendly personality won him over. He has had instructors in the past to whom he never wanted see or speak again after the first lesson, but after she left he said, ‘I really like her; she’s a good teacher.’ I was so happy that we found someone so special, and so able to work with a student who can be difficult. The teaching materials are thorough and professional, and Caitlin is an excellent facilitator of the lesson. I highly, highly recommend her!!

“My daughter is taking Spanish 2 online and had been struggling. We were not only having trouble with the coursework but also with glitches in the online course itself. After a couple of weeks, Caitlin had my daughter on a much better path to being caught up and helped get the glitches in the system worked out. She has been indispensable and I would highly recommend her to anyone needing instruction with all levels of Spanish.”

Caitlin has been teaching my daughter. Here is a review she told me:
“The lesson went very well. Caitlin supported me when I was working on the activities in the book, and taught me new words. She did not rush me by teaching me many new things at a time, so I didn’t have to worry about getting confused. The speaking practice was very helpful. It was hard, but I really enjoyed the lesson! Time flew by so fast!”
I highly recommend Caitlin if you are looking for a Spanish teacher.
Update by my daughter after the three months of lessons:
“I had awesome Spanish lessons with Caitlin this summer. Each week, we went over some questions I encountered while I was studying by myself, worked on some worksheets of new grammar rules, listened to Spanish songs, read cartoons, etc. Every activity we did was so fun that time flew by so fast. My favorite was the songs. It is hard to understand the meaning, but Caitlin explained each line in detail. Now, Shakira is my favorite singer!
I also liked the way she explained me new grammar. There are some rules that we do not have in English, so she taught me the clues to tell the difference, and gave me examples. She also told me that the rules aren’t always clear, which made me less worried when I worked on my own.
We did not just study during lessons. She is such a fun-loving person that we talked and laughed a lot too! I loved her lessons so much that I got excited before every lesson.
My goal for this summer was to finish Spanish 2 on my own, which seemed extremely difficult, since it is usually done by spending a whole year. However, Caitlin’s Spanish lessons made it possible and I was able to finish Spanish 2 in only three months!
I am very grateful for everything she has done to support me.
I highly recommend Caitlin as your Spanish tutor. I would definitely like to take her classes next summer again!”
