I have extensive experience helping students develop effective writing and library research skills, including implementation of APA Style. I hold a Doctorate in Educational Leadership and Curriculum and Instruction. The focus of my dissertation was the impact of education on Latino students from a representative bureaucracy perspective. The retrospective study centered on determining to what extent Latino representation in governance influence Latino students’ graduation rates in public high school in two counties in New York. My writing and research interests include teachers-as-researchers, examining ethnic identity, biculturalism, development of children of color, social and cultural theory, Latino and Afro-Latino studies, race and ethnicity (with a focus on Afro-descendants in and from Latin America), urban sociology, education policy, educational leadership, Culturally-Responsive Teaching, and transition to college initiatives.

Since our 11 year old daughter, Ella has had lessons with Dr. D., she no longer gets anxious or stressed about Common Core Math. Ella says Dr. D. is kind and sweet, and she doesn't ever feel bad about not knowing the answers to questions. Dr. D. personalizes her lessons to our school district's Common Core curriculum and sends us emails on how Ella is doing after every lesson. Ella looks forward to her lessons with Dr. D. and she has really gained confidence in approaching math. We are so fortunate to have found Dr. D. and we give her our highest recommendation:)

I'm sorry, I cannot handle this Instructor for my children. She wasn't me but she's not quite the people person I expected. Her personality is not a good match for a high school tutor. Unfortunately her English is not good enough. Her accent is entirely too strong. Also she does not know enough Geometry to help my kids.

Private Writing Teacher

Writing remains one of the most important skills everyone needs to succeed in life. I have worked as a professional writer for more than 10 years, with experience as a script writer, copywriter, blogger, and reviewer. Resume writing, cover letters, personal statements, web text, radio ads, and advertisement are my specialties. Additionally, 7 of my scripts to date have been produced as short documentary films and released on DVD. Since writing improvement is a long-term process, I coach how to brainstorm and create an outline for any assignment; balance sentence structure, word usage and conventions to form articulate paragraphs with transitions; practice self-editing; and correctly follow the format of academic writing at any grade level, especially for essays. I mainly use interactive tools and resources to assist students in elementary school, middle school, and high school. For college and university students, I work with them through regular critiques and feedback to help them ...

Natalie totally exceed my expectations. She is very knowledge and her class was on point, easy to follow, enjoyable and productive. She gave me amazing writing tips and come up with wonderful suggestions. I adore that she was very friendly and responsive too!
I would definitely recommend her services to anyone looking to improve her writing skills, copywriting or looking for a great teacher.
David
Natalie is knowledgeable, energetic, and enthusiastic. She identified my son´s opportunity areas and developed a plan to tackle those areas using tools like BitPaper, Prodigy Game, Quizlet, and Khan Academy. She went from refreshing support all the way to guidance teaching complex concepts building up in the process my son´s confidence and sense of goal achievement. In the beginning, we had another tutor, but rapidly, we noticed Natalie's difference in her thorough approach not only in Math but also in vocabulary, analogies, and QC´s; based on that, we decided to give Natalie the other sessions we had planned with the said tutor. All in all, she's the best tutor you can find!
