Math, Writing and Test Prep Tutor for All Ages
Math, Writing and Test Prep Tutor for All Ages
During the past 9 years, my goal as a tutor has been steadfast: I want to help you help yourself. As the saying goes, you have to be open to accepting help before you can be helped. I understand that because we are all students our entire lives; I know from my own experience how hard it is to learn any subject and how much harder it is to find the right teacher. Now I explain the same concepts I've mastered to countless children and adults who need my help. I provide guidance, full support...
During the past 9 years, my goal as a tutor has been steadfast: I want to help you help yourself. As the saying goes, you have to be open to accepting help before you can be helped. I understand that because we are all students our entire lives; I know from my own experience how hard it is to learn any subject and how much harder it is to find the right teacher. Now I explain the same concepts I've mastered to countless children and adults who need my help. I provide guidance, full support and a boatload of knowledge. I adopt methods that are simple, clever and time-saving, and I adapt to individual learning needs.
I have a deep appreciation for mathematics and what it really teaches — discipline, determination, critical thinking — and I am here to prove to you that you can excel at it, too! With over 2500 hours of math tutoring experience, I specialize in basic math; all areas of algebra; trigonometry and precalculus; and geometry for students in 1st through 12th grade, college and university. That includes Math 1, Math 2, Math 3, college algebra and advanced math.
Though I've been a great reader all my life, I have been working as a professional writer and editor for over 10 years. I offer writing coaching and editing services as well as reading comprehension, grammar and vocabulary help. I don't just teach you how to write: I show you how to translate your thoughts into a fluent composition of words on a page. Real constructive criticism is another tool I use to help you build on your skills and reach your true writing potential.
For test preparation, I focus on concept review, strategy/approach and time management. I've worked the most with students preparing for the ASVAB, ACT, SAT, CBEST, ISEE, SSAT and GRE. One student increased her overall SAT score by 100 points after just 8 lessons, while another raised his AFQT score by 15 points and now has a great career in the Air Force. I help students pinpoint their struggle areas and conquer them so they can reach their score goals.

Highly Recommended, Patient Tutor
My family and I appreciate Natlie G. so much. I recently PASSED my Reading (Score:44) and Math (Score:52) section in the CBEST exam!!! She has been very patient with me throughout the entire process of reviewing for my CBEST exam. She has helped and guided me all the way. She has provided me excellent materials that I used to help me review for my exam. The first time I took the test I did not pass so Natalie provided me additional exercises on material covered between sessions, it is an added plus and surely accelerated my overall progress. She would always remind me to always take my time, read the test questions carefully and double check my answers! During the exam I did exactly what she said and it worked!!! Everything that was on the CBEST exam are the ones we reviewed together. Natlie G. you are just THE best, thank you so much for all that you did for me! I will miss our review sessions! I highly recommend her, anyone who would hire her will be in great hands!Charina, 16 lessons with Natalie
