"Empathetic, Patient, and Thorough"
Jeremy from Westlake Village, CA on 2/5/14
Natalie meets with my child weekly for Algebra tutoring. She really takes the time to get at the root of what is tripping her up about a particular math concept. She reviews old tests with her to ensure she's got a good foundation to build upon. We're very happy and would recommend her to anyone.
"A great tutor"
Sara from Camarillo, CA on 4/11/14
My daughter always looks forward to meeting Natalie. She gives great examples to help her understand what she is learning. Money well spent.
"Very Helpful "
TOMOYUKI from Santa Barbara, CA on 3/19/14
She is very nice and friendly in helping me. I am an international student from Japan and could not speak English fluently one year ago. With the help of her lessons, my English skills and understanding of American culture have greatly improved.

Natalie has been working with our nine year old for a few months now and it has been amazingly helpful. My daughter was struggling in math and not only is Natalie incredibly knowledgeable in the subject, she has taught my daughter how to relax and really think things through before she answers. Natalie is patient and kind, and there are no "dumb" questions. My daughter is now flourishing in school. She has turned from frustrated and unsure of herself as a student to confident and self-assured. I am convinced Natalie has played a huge role in that. I am really grateful to have found Natalie and I would highly recommend her to anyone who's child is struggling or just needs some extra help! She is an amazing tutor!
"Outstanding Tutor. Very relative and reliable."
Adam from Thousand Oaks, CA on 10/2/13
My son has had 7 sessions with Natalie and every one has been a 5 star rating. Anytime you seek an instructor/teacher/tutor they may have the knowledge but not the means to communicate with the student. Natalie will understand your interest and work them in to her teaching methods. With this information she analyzes how to motivate and make the lessons understandable to her subject. She cares. I could not of made a better choice.
"Breaks complicated concepts down."
Aura from Bernalillo, NM on 8/20/13
I hired Ms. B. to tutor my 15-year-old in molecular biology in preparation for her midterm exam. My daughter felt that this tutor was able to break concepts down and use analogies which truly helped her visualize and grasp complicated ideas which her own teacher glossed over quickly. Ms. B. was also great about giving test-taking skills during the last few minutes of her session when it appeared my daughter understood everything. We have "banked" several sessions with this tutor so that my daughter now knows she can count on having future scientific concepts broken down as well. Ms. B. has actually been a middle/high school science teacher so this experience helps with the one-on-one help she gives.
As Ms. B started helping with Trigonometry/Algebra my daughter said it best, "Why can't my math teacher explain it like Ms. B does, it doesn't have to be so hard." Because we are out of state from Ms. B, she is willing to tutor over the phone or via Skype... thank goodness! Sure, we could find another Wyzant tutor in our state but we prefer Ms. B. and would "take" her wherever we go.
"The Perfect Solution"
Susan from Goleta, CA on 2/18/13
Natalie brings a lot of experience with her. She was able to connect with my son and his specific needs quickly, and not waste his time and my money. For future needs he knows he can access her through his choice of technology or in person anytime, a huge benefit.

Natalie has been a blessing for my 12 year old daughter. She makes the hour of tutoring fun but educational. She does not "give" the student the answer she helps them figure it out.
I love how Natalie will also SHOW and EXPLAIN with me what our daughter is doing at school and how to better help her out. Some of the time these equations I forgot how to do myself, but Natalie helps explain them to me also so when she is gone I can be a big help to my daughter as well.
My daughter looks forward to working with Natalie every week. She is now helping her get ahead of her class, which definitely makes my daughter feel great about herself.
Thank you Natalie for all your time!!!
"Great copy editor."
Brian from Oakland, CA on 5/5/11
I've had two sessions with Natalie for my college course. Her copy edits, thoughts, input and feedback has been invaluable. She's straight to the point, is concise, clear and gives examples. I only wish I had more assignments from class now so I could work with her again.
