Online Phonics Teacher

I had phonics as an official course from 1st to 6th grade - in total, 6 years. I am also a native English speaker. Using a systematic approach, I have helped elementary-age students build their knowledge of phonics, including vowel recognition, through a variety of enjoyable exercises. I also use online resources for homework and practice outside of lessons. Older students review the basics and then focus on prefixes, suffixes, and Latin and Greek roots, also supported by regular vocabulary study on the side.

About Natalie

For more than 11 years, my goal as a tutor has been steadfast: I help students learn more and make progress in their studies. I don't just teach them how to count, read, and write: I show them how to build on their skills and reach their true potential. I know from my own experience how hard it is t

Natalie took her time to understand my kids needs and create lessons to fill gaps in their math knowledge and build from there. She gave some homework throughout the week to help my kids catch up in basic math.

Natalie was great at communicating with me after every session. She always gave a detailed summary and the plan for next week.

Thank you!
Deniz
Amazing, patient and funny! Natalie helped me prepare for my PSAT and she was amazing. I love everything about the way she teaches. The questions seem easy when she explains them and you feel comfortable with her.
Elia
Natalie really goes above and beyond than any other tutor my daughter has had. From evaluating her before to see where she was, to assigning work to keep her learning before her next lesson. Very impressed!

Lesson Planning for Distance Learning- For parents needing assistance with writing lesson plans, please let me know! I can work with you to come up with lesson ideas for your children during distance learning.

During my time as a teacher I was responsible for teaching reading for 2.5 hours/day. I have a wide range of techniques that I can use to help your child grow their vocabulary, learn their letters, sight words, and phonetic sounds. I have workbooks, worksheets and flashcards that I can bring to assist in learning as well.

Monica is a wonderful teacher. She is patient and my son loved her from the first day. She has an easygoing demeanor and she makes math fun for him; she also sends a bunch of worksheets for him to work on in between. My son is entering 4th grade and I wanted him to work on some preview math skills before starting schoo. Monica was the perfect person I was looking for to work with him.

My son’s lessons with Sara have been awesome! He’s very shy and reserved but she has made him feel comfortable. I have no idea what she said to him during their first interaction but it made him more confident in his work. My son has mentioned that she’s pleasant to work with. He also wanted me to mention that she challenges him and helps him think. Thank you Sara!

"Phonics" are the basic foundation of all alphabet-based writing. For learning to read English, students learn best when taught a combination of phonics and sight-words. (English is full of words that are NOT spelled phonetically; however, the rules of phonics do have a definite place in learning to read English.)
With beginning readers, I incorporate songs and rhyme to help children hear and understand phonics. I also use rhythm/percussion to help children distinguish syllables.

so happy I chose to have Linda as my teacher ! she's patient with me (a beginner who does not always have time to practice regularly) and is super helpful with giving me tips and advice on how to be better. Linda can also play ANY song and has helped me learn tons of my favorites. We're working on Annie's Song right now and Linda has helped me not only understand how to play the notes but why we play them a certain way (heck yeah music theory !)

Linda is great. I left with a big smile on my face!
