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 is fantastic! She always was so helpful in helping me understand the math. I didn’t have too good of a base knowledge of algebra and so when I was taking calculus is made it twice as hard. She broke down the complex math and worked through at the level I was at. She cares and understands her students and works exceptionally hard to make sure they succeed. If you need a tutor she’s the one you need!

  • Stephanie Berry

    Our experience w/ Natalie was a great one. She was flexible, & kind, my daughter felt totally comfortable working w/ her. She made the information clear & was able to hold her attention, & interest both through Zoom & in person. Which is often difficult. We would definitely recommend her.

  • Jaxon

    Natalie is just really awesome. She cares about her students. Student succession is her priority and makes time from her schedule to help with students to get ready for exams.

  • Tyler

    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!
