About Natasha

Currently working as an environmental consultant in the Sacramento region, I am well versed in writing clearly worded and analytical material. In my spare time, I utilize my writing and communication skills in mentoring high school and middle school students around the state in proposal writing, debating/public speaking, and critical thinking. Through this experience, I have begun to consider a career in education. However, in order to get a better idea of whether this is a career path I would like to pursue I stumbled upon tutoring and thought I would give it a shot! I absolutely enjoy working with high school and middle school students in a mentoring capacity and would like to extend my passion to teaching and tutoring. I love the spark of excitement that is visible in a student's face when learning a new concept or upon success they never thought possible. While my experience is limited, I am dedicated to doing an excellent job for your student!

I currently work as a technical writer and editor for environmental document sections. Because of the nature of scrutiny associated with my work, I am very thorough and well versed in grammar rules and proofreading. I am also available to work with your student from the beginning steps of a writing assignment through to the end product, My edits will reflect a positive tone with constructive feedback. Edits will also reflect better use of vocabulary (with an explanation of why a word will work better than a different one), proper use of grammar, and mistyping edits. My edits will also guide students towards how to write for specific styles better, depending on the task at hand. My purpose is to encourage learning and foster your student's skills-- no matter what level!

I am also well versed in assisting with college admissions essays. Just as with other writing assignments, I am available to discuss potential writing topics with students prior to the writing process and guide them all the way through. I received recognition for my own personal statement and was offered college scholarships the creativity and effort I put into it. I have also helped various students throughout the state with their college application writing process and editing.

Additionally, I am well prepared to help students prepare for public speaking. Whether it's an awards banquet, family event, school presentation, or an interview, I have extensive experience in helping high school and middle school students prepare for public speaking.

If you think my services could be of help to you or your student, please let me know! I am available in the evenings and on weekends. Hope to talk soon!
