Since 2010, I have helped more than 6000 students of all ages and backgrounds understand their homework, excel in their classes, and comprehensively prepare for upcoming exams. My specialties are basic to advanced math, writing coaching, and test preparation for the SSAT, ISEE, CogAT, SCAT, SAT, ACT, CLEP, CBEST, and GRE. With my support, my students pinpoint struggle areas and conquer them so they can achieve their goals in school and life. They make progress in their studies and score in the top percentiles on tests. After weekly lessons, one of my students aced her precalculus final exam, another increased his overall SAT score by 100 points after just 5 lessons, and 2 SSAT students scored in the 98th percentile! My CBEST students finally passed after numerous failed attempts without tutoring. The key formula for successful learning is “practice makes perfect”: anyone can improve with enough hard work, dedication, and, of course, the right guidance. I don't just teach my students what they need to know: I show them how to build on the skills they already have and reach their true potential. I know from my own experience how hard it is to learn any subject and how much harder it is to find the right teacher. Now I explain the same concepts I've mastered to countless students who need my help. I customize my online lessons to fit every student’s needs. That includes online resources, recommended homework, and enrichment learning. Please contact me today to set up a risk-free first lesson!

Natalie started working with my son to get his college essays in shape. He is not the most outgoing or enthusiastic, but Natalie really drew out what he was trying to say and got the essays started. Then, a little way in, Liam had a crisis with regards to needing to take the SAT again and get his scores up to be competitive at his top-choice colleges. Natalie stepped right into that role, helped go over what he had missed before and helped him feel confident and ready to retake it. His combined score increased 60 points! I should mention that this is a real feat, as his scores were pretty good already (much better than mine were as a teen!). That put him in range for his top choices, which made him very happy. Finally, it was back to the essays to polish them up, and Natalie again stepped in and now they look great - plus with much reduced friction between kid and parents, which is a huge relief for me! All in all, it was a fabulous experience and I would recommend her to anyone with a kid working through any phase of the college admission process!
Our son enjoyed his time with Natalie and we're looking forward to her tutoring!
My daughter wanted help in math for Precalculus for school and to boost her SAT score. Natalie thoroughly reviewed my daughter's math quizzes and tests and helped her prepare for her final exam. My daughter scored the highest she's ever scored on a final exam; she was so happy. As for the SAT prep, Natalie's strategy was perfect. My daughter's score was boosted dramatically, almost 100 points in the Reading/Writing section alone.
