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.

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!

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 examples for the following subjects: Basic (Elementary) Math, Pre-Algebra, Geometry, Algebra I, Algebra II, and College Math.

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.

Very patient

Natalie taught my son geometry, she is very patient, and my son likes her a lot. His grades are already improving. She doesn't miss sessions. She's really good at explaining the concepts that my son is learning at school.

Alice, 3 lessons with Natalie

Great tutor

Natalie has helped my son with Chemistry twice so far. His grade has improved and he finally understands the concepts they are teaching. She has made a world of difference for a kid that was frustrated and wanted to give up.

Laurie, 2 lessons with Natalie

Knowledgeable and patient

My son was having a hard time in math (geometry) Natalie broke it down easily for him to understand which now he understands it I look forward in her to continue teaching him in math he likes her a lot and she is very patient and kind

Carlos, 2 lessons with Natalie

Great tutor!

We are seeing results with our daughter Since Natalie has been helping her and hope it continues. Very happy so far! Natalie means business and she's a perfect fit for our family!

Heather , 1 lesson with Natalie

Very patient and knowledgeable!

Natalie helped our children improve their grades in Algebra 2, Chemistry and Physics! She's a great tutor!! We really appreciate her working such long hours during midterms!

Jose, 8 lessons with Natalie

Great Teacher

Natalie W. is awesome, my girls loved her and see progress already. Thumbs up. Girls can't stop talking about her and fun they had while learning, thank you Natalie.

Joel, 34 lessons with Natalie

Knowledgeable and Flexible

Natalie worked with my 14 year old daughter on high school physics. My daughter was struggling with new subject matter and Natalie patiently explained the material in a way that my daughter was able to grasp easily. We had a bit of a issue with the start time (different time zones) but Natalie flexed and we were able to work around it. We appreciated her flexibility and her simple way of explaining tough content.

Highly Recommended

Natalie helped me to break down forces and how to solve problems conceptually. She is very good at explaining the concepts and apply mathematical concepts and life experiences to understand the principals. Highly recommended.

Able to explain concepts in a manner that students understand.

Natalie did a great job of explaining the concepts and problem solving steps involved in correctly answering difficult AP Physics questions. Rather than be lost in minutiae Natalie was able to explain the correct protocol for finding the solution in an efficient and expedient manner.
