"Such a motivating and great tutor!"
Eric from Coppell, TX on 10/22/13
I came to Natasha around the end of my junior year in high school, in panic from my extremely low SAT score of about a 1500. Despite starting so late, she took me in and set me up for a crash course SAT curriculum. Within 8-9 weeks, Natasha took me in twice a week for two hours each session. She focused on Math and Writing during this time and I was able to improve my score over 300 points. I came back to her afterwards to work on the Reading section of the exam, only to see even more of an improvement. She always told me that "practice does not make perfect, but perfect practice makes perfect" and how to tackle the SAT. Her methods are always positive and are always motivating. The tutoring experience is very personal and her classroom set is up comfortable and very up to date. Her use of technology incorporates technology that makes learning even easier. A lot of the work, however is meant to be done at home. She will teach you everything you need to know to get a perfect score on the SAT, but it is a matter of how much you apply yourself outside of the classroom. It is impossible to just show up to a few sessions and expect a rapid improvement without any effort. But with Natasha, that won't be a problem because she will assign you plenty of work! Each session, she would go over my homework and essays to personally point out where I went wrong, and how to correct my errors. When you haven't been keeping up with your work, she will notice and make sure to keep you motivated to stay on track. As a person who usually lacks the motivation to crack open some SAT practice problems, Natasha definitely leaves you walking out of her classroom motivated to get on track. Although her tutoring is in the high price range, her rate is definitely worth every penny as long as you put forth the effort.
"The Best SAT Tutor "
Alekhya from Coppell, TX on 10/7/13
Natasha is a fantabulous SAT tutor. Even though I had attended other SAT prep courses before I started with her, they haven't been helping me much. However, after taking only a few classes with Natasha, I'd knew that I found the right person! She tailors the SAT course according to what best fits each student, and I think that's very important! She's very patient, helpful, and very flexible on scheduling classes. Not only was I able to improve my score significantly in both reading and writing, but I also gained confidence in my SAT skills to tackle these challenging problems. I think what sets her apart from the other SAT tutors is that she identifies your weakness, and gives you more practice on those areas till you become adept at approaching them. In addition, she'll give practice sections to take home to ensure that you're utilizing the right strategies. She developed her own strategy plan for tackling each verbal question, and they've been very helpful to me! I know that my major weak point was lack of confidence, and she has helped me overcome this through her own approach! She is very encouraging and motivated to help others when in need! I'm really glad that I've had her as SAT tutor thus far, as my performance on this test has been improving significantly! I would recommend her to anyone looking for a SAT or College prep tutor!
"The best fun and enthusiastic tutor"

Natasha is very helpful and understanding. English is my second language yet she helped me overcome this obstacle. Grammar is my weakest area in writing but she significantly helped me improve my personal statement and taught me grammatical rules that I took into consideration in my future writing. She is fun and very lovely. I felt very comfortable talking to her with no hesitation or getting embarrassed because of my language barrier.
"Extremely gifted tutor!"
Ainslee from Denton, TX on 6/4/13
My daughter has been seeing Natasha for a few weeks now and the curriculum she has designed is outstanding. She specializes in knowing how to teach a child who is ADHD and my daughter LOVES her! She looks forward to every meeting with Natasha. She does not only teach the SAT prep, she cares very much about the progress of the children. It is rare to come across someone who is gifted for teaching and Natasha is definitely that one. My daughter's confidence and motivation have tremendously increased as a result of the tutoring. You would be hard pressed to find someone as passionately dedicated as Natasha!

Natasha has been an amazing!! Challenging, yet educating my son in his SAT preparation! We could not be more proud of the progress that have made with our son. We are so lucky to have found her!
Shannon from Little Elm, TX on 5/1/13
Natasha was great. My son needed to raise his scores by a few points. She helped him do this. Very easy to work with and very flexible on scheduling. Thank you, Natasha!

Natasha is very helpful and knows exactly what my daughter needs to work on! She is easy to reach and flexible with schedule changes.
"Excellent SAT Prep Program"
David from Coppell, TX on 1/21/13
I cannot say enough about Natasha's program that she develops and uses with students. My son is getting significant value from the time spent here and it is a great value. We looked at other options and decided to give Natasha a try before writing a big check to one of the "known SAT prep places". That turned out to be the best idea and we are thrilled to be getting so much out of the prep sessions!!
"Well Organized, Focused and Friendly"
Don from Dallas, TX on 9/30/12
I have been favorably impressed so far with Natasha's organizational skills and her focus on test strategies. My son has come away from the lessons with specific help and clearly understood test tools. He's had a good initial reaction to Natasha and her math assistant - and if he's feeling good about putting in the extra work AND finds it helpful, haven't we accomplished all the metrics at which we really need to look (until scores come back)?
Julia from Plano, TX on 9/10/12
Natasha is a wonderful teacher. She is very attentive and thorough. She helped my daughter in writing college essays. She understands the most important issues in getting good results when applying for college. She helped my daughter in finding her own voice in writing, pinpointing the most important issues of essay, editing and re-editing. I would highly recommend Natasha to high school students looking for help in applying to college.

Natasha was very helpful tutoring my son for the SAT. She was more than willing to accommodate his schedule and worked up a personal lesson plan just for him. I highly recommend her for any tutoring needs.
