My name is Natalie, and I'm a second-year student at Rice University majoring in Biochemistry and Cell Biology as well as in English. My unusual double major is a result of my inability to choose a favorite subject--I love literature and science! This love of learning translates naturally to my role as a tutor. Because I love learning, I look for ways to transmit my passions to others by teaching them. Another reason I enjoy tutoring lies in my own experience as a student. I had to work very hard for the grades it took to get to college, so I understand the problems of the struggling student, and I try my best to relate the methods I personally used to overcome those obstacles.
I've tutored high school-level Chemistry and Algebra as well as SAT prep, but I also have an extensive background in Spanish and French and am very familiar with Biology, Pre-Calculus, and Calculus, among other subjects.
In my free time, I enjoy reading, yoga, and catching up with my two lovely little sisters.
