Caroline L.


Caroline grew up in London and moved to Connecticut for high school. Although she’s lived in the US for close to 14 years now, people still question her unique transatlantic accent. Caroline attended Washington University in St. Louis and graduated Magna Cum Laude with her M.S. in Mechanical Engineering. Somehow she managed to get through engineering coursework (with a 3.93/4.0 GPA!) while being a four year Varsity Swimmer and Senior Year Captain. After college, Caroline moved to Houston, Texas to work for ExxonMobil at a refinery. There she donned attractive coveralls and steel toed boots, and spent her days solving mechanical engineering problems in the field. After four years working for ExxonMobil, Caroline decided to take a change in her life course and embarked on a journey of a lifetime backpacking through Asia. She is now pursuing her MBA at MIT’s Sloan School of Management.

Caroline has worked as a tutor and teacher since college in a variety of capacities. Her major strengths include mathematics, physics, engineering, chemistry for high school and college students, and test preparation for the SAT and the GMAT. Caroline enjoys helping her students work through complex ideas to finally reach understanding. As an engineer, she’s had a fair number of those “aha!” moments and loves when her students get there.

In her free time, Caroline loves to travel. She is always looking for her next peak to summit or mountain to ski. You may also find her training for her next running race or at the yoga studio.
