About this tutor

I have been tutoring for over 7 years, helping students to not only improve their grades, but their study skills. When a student at the University of Utah, I was employed through the university to teach calculus 1,2,3, college algebra, and physics. Calculus tutoring, in particular, was my speciality and my students were very pleased with my ability to break up complex  subjects into understandable concepts. 

I have studied test prep strategies extensively over the years and become an expert standardized test taker and test prep tutor. As someone who successfully was able to raise my ACT score by 9 points and score near perfect, and perfect scores on all four categories, I can attest that success on the ACT is a matter of incorporated the right strategies to obtain your target score. 

I previously was employed as a teacher through Sylvan Learning Center and received certification. I taught students in the age range of k-12. I have also taught many students in the k-12 as well as preschool age with much success. 

I am very adaptable as a teacher and my methodology is based off of cognitive psychology pioneered by Mark A. McDaniel and Peter C. Brown, which has reaped great results with my students.

    Natalie was amazing, she was able to work around my very odd schedule. Everytime there was a difficult problem we could not figure out together she would take time outside of our meetings to review the topic again and start the next meeting with a brief review and solution to any unanswered questions. Truly amazing and committed to my success!

    Natalie is so personable and really explains things clearly. She helped my daughter not only understand the math concepts, but also helped her build her confidence. She is an amazing tutor. Great with children and such a huge help. She saved us this past year. We will use her again and again and I would recommend her to everyone in need of tutoring.

    My son was having a hard time earlier this year with AP Calculus. the pandemic probably played a role but he was failing, frustrated and didn't know what to do. It was not a subject I could help him with. I found Natalie with Top Student Tutoring. Natalie was very competent, reliable, well prepared, capable, encouraging, patient and kind when helping my son with AP Calculus. He liked how she was able to explain things in multiple ways until he understood it and never seemed impatient. I was just hoping my son would pass so I was very pleased and impressed,that with Natalie's help, my son has improved his grade from an F to an A! Natalie has the computer skills and equipment to tutor effectively remotely so she can help you no matter where you live.
