All of Natasha’s current tutoring subjects are listed at the left. You can read more about Natasha’s qualifications in specific subjects below.

ADD/ADHD

Approximately 40% of my current students are attention deficit and they are all referrals from former students with the same special educational needs. I have a track record of success with my special needs students simply because unlike most tutors, my College Prep Curriculum is hands-on and actively engages my students. My curriculum is taught with the aid of educational videos, power point presentations and flash card games among other tools. Such tools have consistently generated interest in my students and have kept them focused for longer periods of time. Students find themselves motivated after my classes and are determined to give tests like the SATs and ACTs their best shot!

College Counseling

I have worked closely with faculty and administrators affiliated with the admissions department at the University of California, Irvine. I have also attended workshops and webinars, which keep me updated on the criteria that admissions officers and deans consider highly when reviewing applications. My forte lies in admissions essay consulting. I have worked with numerous students in Asia, Europe and the US and have helped them put their best foot forward when applying to prestigious institutions such as Cambridge, the London School of Economics, NYU and UC Berekeley (among many others). I believe that the best way to express yourself in an admissions essay is by, in the words of Steve Jobs, "connecting the dots". Once you take time out to see how far you have come and what you have accomplished, only then will you be able to have a clear vision for your future. My job is to simply use my knowledge and extensive research to help you find your voice and make you connect the dots.

Dyslexia

Over the years I have worked with numerous students with special educational needs. About 10% of my current students are dyslexic. I love working with my special needs students as they give me an opportunity to grow my skills and mold my hands on curriculum to fit their needs. I tutor with the aid of electronic tools that help lay out my curriculum visually on a smart screen. Most of my students learn better through videos and images and the information that I teach is usually delivered through actively engaging my students visually as well as verbally. This helps students piece together valuable information, which they then retain and apply both academically and professionally.

PSAT

I will work with your child thrice a week to ensure proficiency in reading writing and mathematics. The PSAT is a rigorous test and is often used by numerous non-profit, public and private organizations to determine whether your child is qualified to receive a merit-based scholarship. This is crucial if you have limited resources and would like your child to take advantage of higher education from an accredited academic institution. I inspire students from eighth grade onwards to excel not only at test taking but also in all their pursuits whether academic personal or professional.

SAT Math

I have two methods of teaching the math portion of the SAT. The first method is to test my students in the different categories and customize the course to their individual needs. The second, is to start at the beginning and teach or re-teach all math topics of the SAT. I have structured a course that covers every, and I mean every, math topic there is in the SAT, and pride myself in explaining the subjects in such a way that any student will obtain a firm grasp of the concepts. The next step will be to teach the strategies and methods of "how" to take the SAT. The last and final step is to bombard the student with practice to ensure the retention of everything that I have taught them. I am confident that after learning from me, my student will love math.

SAT Reading

Reading is one of the most important subjects in the SATs through which Collegeboard tests your child. It is by far also the most difficult as it pushes your child to think critically. I work thoroughly with your child until he or she is thoroughly familiar with the content ETS places in the SAT critical reading section. Not only will you notice an increase in your child's vocabulary but you will also witness a difference in the way your child expresses him/herself. I strive to inspire as only inspiration fortifies a child's personality and motivates the child to enjoy all works of the english language and literature. This is crucial for not only academic but ultimately professional success.

SAT Writing

In order to tackle the SAT writing component I find it necessary to take all of my students back to the basics of the English language. After reacquainting them with basic linguistics I teach them how to identify errors within sentences and paragraphs. I also equip them with unique and potent skills essential in persuasive essay writing.

Approved Subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet certified in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
