About Natalie

Having taught elementary school in Capistrano Unified School District for the past 20 years and working in preschools many years before that, I have always had a love of working with young children. I have taught grades K-3 during my tenure in Capistrano Unified. Approaching teaching in a creative engaging way with students allows learning to blossom.

My educational background includes attending Brigham Young University and Cal State Fullerton. I graduated with my bachelor's in liberal studies and a minor in child development. I received my clear multiple subjects credential from Cal State Fullerton. Each year I continue my professional development my attending training in a variety of seminars including UCI Math project, Discovery Education English/Language Arts, Orange County of Department of Education classes and California Teacher Association Conferences. I also take professional development education courses offered through Cal State Fullerton.

I specialize in tutoring reading, phonics, writing and K-3 math. To reinforce learning concepts I incorporate a variety of strategies including my students' favorite learning games to achieve their learning goals. During the summer months, keeping up with these skills is especially important to avoid "the summer slide" so your student will be ready and prepared for the next school year.

As a mother I understand that life is busy and sometimes plans need to be changed. I have a 24 hour cancellation policy but do offer make up sessions.

I look forward to taking part in your child's educational success.
