Bio

For almost 20 years now I’ve been working with others to achieve their goals! I have worked with students of all ages - kiddos, teens and adults in California, Oregon, North Carolina and even Costa Rica & Peru!

In addition to cooking, hanging with my dog, gardening, reading, traveling, practicing yoga, studying philosophy, or adventuring on a hike, snowboard or surfboard, I absolutely love teaching and empowering others.

For almost 20 years now I’ve been working with others to achieve their goals! I have worked with students of all ages - kiddos, teens and adults in California, Oregon, North Carolina and even Costa Rica & Peru!

In addition to cooking, hanging with my dog, gardening, reading, traveling, practicing yoga, studying philosophy, or adventuring on a hike, snowboard or surfboard, I absolutely love teaching and empowering others.

What a rush when a student aces a test, or nails an essay, passes a class, gets into college, learns to speak Spanish, masters being focused & calm during a test -- the magic to my students’ accomplishments lies in the incremental progress they build with their practice over time, and I have had the privilege of offering encouragement and tools to support them along the way.

I enjoy getting to know my students. I will learn your strengths and help you use them to expand your skills and knowledge. As for the hurdles we face as we’re learning, they are awesome tools to help us to get stronger!

It takes courage to go after your academic and personal goals. I want to support you on your quest. I have fine-tuned my methodology and have been extremely successful helping others. I enjoy creating new tools and material based on my students’ needs. I believe in the power of practice, and every day I too work on my own goals.

You can expect me to answer your questions and calls, to keep our appointments and arrive on time, to be dedicated to your progress.

I am genuine, positive and caring.

If you chose me as your tutor & coach, I will be a positive force in your life. Let me use my superpower, and work with you as you actualize your dreams.

I lived in Peru and taught English to many students in a variety of settings. I most recently taught students in a Dual-Language Immersion program. I hold a TESOL Certificate. With all my classes, we study practical vocabulary and famous speeches; we read and write stories and play games. I use visual and kinesthetic strategies with all ESL learners and make our learning experiences as interactive as possible.

As a young student, I aced Principles of Professional Cooking, studied the work of several chefs, trained under a local sushi chef, and began a lifelong pursuit of developing my cooking style and deepening my understanding. I offer courses locally, specifically in Nutrition for the Energetic Body, where the curriculum is focused on a plant-based menu and cross-utilizing ingredients of a specific color.

CBEST

I passed the California Basic Educational Skills Test and have helped many students prepare for the exam themselves, all with great success. With the use of test prep material, preparing for this exam is very approachable. Whether your areas of greatest need are the reading, the math or the writing section, we will develop and follow a study plan so that you'll arrive on test day confident, centered and ready to pass.

Excellence, once again!

Highly rated tutoring session. Transforms that which comes hard for me and breaks it down so that I actually understand the material! Thank you so much!!!

Eric, 3 lessons with Natalie

Very Easy Going

Natalie's Spanish skills are helpful in helping my daughter. We look forward to our next session. I'm also thinking about having her tutor in some other subjects.

Lorece, 3 lessons with Natalie

Enthusiastic and Encouraging!

Natalie is very upbeat, far from boring and knowledgeable in various areas. She is passionate in her teachings and a huge inspiration to me to want to learn even more from her. I highly recommend her for a tutor.

Natalie K. A Perfect Fit!

My son was preparing to take his SATs and needed some help with his college algebra skills. I found Natalie K. on WyzAnt. During the interview process, I was very impressed with her knowledge and patience. She helped my son achieve his goal but she also set him up with a foundation of learning that he continues to use today. I could not thank Natalie enough for her help. She is the best!

Life Saver for a College Freshman!

Natalie was a true life Saver. With just 3 weeks left in the semester, my daughter found herself on the border line with respect to a passing grade. Her confidence was shaken and she was stressed to say the least. I found Natalie on WyzAnt and was impressed by her profile. After a short e-mail exchange, we conducted a phone con during which I explained my daughter's situation. Most tutors would have waived off on the challenge, but Natalie discussed a plan with me that gave me a high level of assurance for success. She met with my daughter as many times as was necessary to prepare her for the final test and the final exam. Also, her flexibility with respect to my daughter's schedule was much appreciated. Bottom Line: My daughter passed the class and gained a clearer understanding of the material. Fact: Without Natalie's commitment, professionalism, encouragement, and tutorial abilities, my daughter would not have been able to recover and pass her class.

Great tutor

Natalie is helping my daughter at ECU with Spanish and she has been so helpful and patient. My daughter has struggled with this subject and will often just get frustrated and quit. Having a tutor makes her sit down and focus and work through the tough spots so that she can learn. Natalie is so helpful!
