Results-driven test prep for all sections of the PSAT, 12+ years experience

The PSAT is basically a SAT practice test, an assessment of related skill and concept areas. The only different between them is test duration times. I’ve tutored middle school and high school students for all sections of the PSAT as a strong foundation for eventual SAT prep. For PSAT Reading, I teach students how to break down each passage, “translate” the questions into simple directions, and apply the best strategies to find the right answers. As well as tips and tricks, we study grammar rules and writing mechanics thoroughly so they can score high in the PSAT Writing section. PSAT Math is the most challenging section because success depends on individual math knowledge and analytical thinking skills. I first walk students through concept review before we approach the different question types they can expect to see in both the no-calculator and calculator sections. We “think outside the box” and use the quickest solving techniques so they are prepared to answer similar questions and finish well within the time limit.
About Natalie

For more than 12 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 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 children and adults who need my help. For every student I work with, I customize our online lessons to fit their needs. I also provide homework, online resources and enrichment learning. Contact me today to set up a risk-free first lesson and let me guide you to successful learning!

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!

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.
