About Natalie

Hello, I'm Natalie! Welcome to my page! I'm an enthusiastic, skilled, and versatile instructor and scientist with 7+ years of award-winning experience in Elementary through university-level education and publishable research. My love of teaching starts with my insatiable passion for learning and ends with high-fiving my students when they get their "A-ha!" moment after struggling to master a concept.

I specialize in STEM courses and study skills (especially for those students with ADD/ADHD). I earned an ACS-certified B.S. in Chemistry (with a minor in Applied Mathematics) and a B.S. in Physics (with a minor in Astrophysics) from Purdue University and I'm pursuing a M.S. in Physics at The University of Texas at San Antonio.

For each client, I develop tailored curriculum based upon their needs. I break down complex material into simple explanations using lots of interactive examples and practice problems. I challenge my students to overcome their mental blocks by teaching them practical study skills that will help them learn and retain the material, and then I assign homework problems to extend their knowledge. I will provide periodic progress reports and assessments that will be used to evaluate the student's individual performance. This allows us to work together to determine the best strategy for learning and retaining the material.

As an Academic Specialist (in MathWorld) and then an Adjunct Professor of Developmental Mathematics at St. Philip's College, I've developed lesson plans, problem sets, and interactive examples for the following subjects: Basic Math, Pre-Algebra, Geometry, Algebra I, Algebra II, and College Math. I have experience privately tutoring the aforementioned subjects in addition to: Trigonometry, Pre-Calculus, Calculus (single-variable and multivariate), and Differential Equations.

As an undergraduate Lab Instructor at Purdue University Calumet (PUC) I've taught the following subjects: General Chemistry Lab I & II, Organic Chemistry Lab I & II, and Algebra-based Physics Lab I & II. As a Teaching Assistant at The University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA), I've taught General Chemistry Lab I & II, and both Algebra-based and Calculus-based Physics I & II Labs. I developed experiment-driven curriculum for the Algebra-based Physics Labs at PUC. I've worked as a Supplemental Instruction Tutor (S.I.) at PUC where I tutored Algebra-Based Physics I & II. I've privately tutored clients in the above subjects as well as: Physical Chemistry, Analytical Chemistry, Analytical Mechanics, Quantum Mechanics, Electricity & Magnetism, Optics, Astronomy, and Astrophysics.

I'm generally available from 7 am to 7 pm every day (or by appointment) for tutoring sessions online and in-person. Additionally, I will check-in with you in between sessions to see how you're doing.

Have you been looking for a STEM tutor who's passionate about providing creative problem-solving techniques? If so, please contact me! Let's work together to help you achieve your educational (or career) goals!

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Algebra 1

As an Academic Resources Specialist (in MathWorld) and then an Adjunct Professor of Developmental Mathematics at St. Philip's College, I've developed lesson plans, problem sets, and interactive examples for the following subjects: Basic Math, Pre-Algebra, Geometry, Algebra I, Algebra II, and College Math. I have experience privately tutoring the aforementioned subjects in addition to: Trigonometry, Pre-Calculus, Calculus (single-variable and multivariate), and Differential Equations.

This allows us to work together to determine the best strategy for learning and retaining the material.

The experience I've gained allows me to approach problems through multiple perceptions and to break down complex concepts with simplified explanations. This process has resulted in many of my students achieving their "A-ha" moments, which is why I continue to teach and tutor.

Algebra 2

As an Academic Resources Specialist (in MathWorld) and then as an Adjunct Professor of Developmental Mathematics at St. Philip's College (since 2015), I've developed lesson plans, problem sets, and interactive examples for the following subjects: Basic Math, Pre-Algebra, Geometry, Algebra I, Algebra II, and College Math. I've tutored these subjects privately and through the college.
