SAT test prep, when done right, can be very rewarding. I helped my last student raise her composite SAT score by over 100 points after just 8 lessons! Given my background and experience in tutoring algebra, geometry, trigonometry, and precalculus, I have helped countless high school students with test prep for the SAT math sections. SAT math requires a different way of looking at math problems and applying concept skills to solve them. Students work with me on practice sets and practice tests so they can learn how to dissect problems in a quick, practical way and find the right answers. Their time management and test taking skills improve through regular test prep as they master how to navigate both the calculator and no-calculator sections. During all the years I’ve tutored students for the SAT Reading section, I show them exactly how to break down the material in each passage into plain English, interpret the questions as simple directions, and use the best strategies to find the right answers. We also go over the passage categories and key question types for each category. Throughout our lessons, students work constantly on practice material to exercise their analytical thinking skills and improve their reading comprehension. As challenging as this section is, they can learn how to beat the time limit and still score high. Moreover, I have tutored many students for the SAT Writing/Language section. This section expects students to understand basic grammar rules and writing mechanics. Prep includes a review of correct sentence structure, organization, word and grammar usage, and paragraph development. I help students find repeating mistakes, understand those mistakes, and avoid future mistakes through regular drills and practice. I believe anyone can reach a perfect score in this section, so we work to achieve that.
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!

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.

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!
