About Natalie


Bio

I have always loved the tutoring process. I minored in secondary education in college, helping students in middle and high school English and history classrooms. While teaching, I found myself drawn to the heightened learning and connection that happens in one-on-one teaching. I also earned my keep through college by tutoring fellow students in writing. I worked as a writing assistant at the University of Portland's Writing Center and as a teacher's assistant in a writing intensive course...

I have always loved the tutoring process. I minored in secondary education in college, helping students in middle and high school English and history classrooms. While teaching, I found myself drawn to the heightened learning and connection that happens in one-on-one teaching. I also earned my keep through college by tutoring fellow students in writing. I worked as a writing assistant at the University of Portland's Writing Center and as a teacher's assistant in a writing intensive course titled, "Biblical Traditions and Cultures." After graduating college, I covered city government and education at the East Oregonian before moving to California as a freelance journalist.

I find joy in gently helping students find their voice. I will meet you where you are at in the (sometimes painstaking) craft of writing. First, I want to understand your struggles with writing. Where do you get stuck? When do you tell yourself "I just can't write"? Each time we meet, my goal is for you to build more confidence and zeal as a writer. I will scrutinize the structure, grammar or flair in your SAT essay, literature review or poem. More importantly, I will support you in rousing a passion for putting an idea to paper.
