“Caroline is an accomplished journalist and writer. Not only has she mastered the craft of writing, but also her ability to connect with people helps her bring her stories and their stories to life. In addition, she has that rare gift of being able to pass on her passion and skills to others. I have seen her work with young students as well is with high school interns. As such, I recommend her without reservation!”

― Duncan Wilson, Assistant Superintendent at Ardsley UFSD, former Scarsdale Fox Meadow School principal.

“We feel very fortunate to have Ms. Gilpin working with our three children. We hired her to provide supplementary writing instruction to help our children become more confident writers. As a seasoned educator, Ms. Gilpin is very thoughtful in her preparation of her lessons. She exposes our children to a variety of engaging reading materials and challenges them to think deeply and creatively when they write. With her teaching expertise and patience, she has helped our children to become more self-assured and effective writers. She connects well with our three children, and they all enjoy their time with her. We give her our highest recommendation.”

“I highly recommend Caroline Gilpin for anyone who needs a writing coach.  She is well-versed and on top of the process.  Best of all, it took us out of the picture.  Parents can sometimes actually get in the way.  We are grateful to Caroline, who provided an extremely valuable service that was exactly what was needed.”

“My son usually has good ideas. However, he was not able to write those things down on paper. Caroline helped him learn how to approach any writing topic.  My son really likes to go to see his writing tutor every week now. They have a great relationship. This is the biggest achievement.”

“I had an idea that I really loved and I had written it in a very disorganized manner.  After Caroline’s assistance, my essay was transformed into a more organized piece of writing, and I also learned a great deal about writing through the process.”
