Welcome to the Collaboration Place: Tutoring in Hobe Sound, FL
-A unique learning experience that leads to life-long study habits!
-Tutoring students K-5 and encouraging behaviors that produce academic gains!
At The Collaboration Place, we offer academic tutoring in Hobe Sound, FL. My vision is to sit and collaborate with parents and teachers on how to help their child succeed in school through structured, yet nurturing methods. I offer in-home tutoring to families whose elementary students attend schools in the Tequesta, Jupiter, Northern Palm Beach and the Hobe Sound, FL, areas. I will target the areas your child needs help with, focusing on academic and behavior targets.
This site is a prerequisite to a bigger dream that will grow in the coming year. Letter writing, Arts and Books will weave into a positive session, changing resistant attitudes to reading into a comfortable habit. LAB sessions are best done on the weekend, or holiday breaks during the school year.
You can book your first session for free. Our services include:
Collaboration with Parents to Establish Needs & Goals
My first and foremost mission is to foster independent skills, so students can work independently and successfully.
My tutoring sessions are presented with a balance of work and with a sense of humor while working towards behavioral modification goals set up in school.
How great is it to see academic gains? I love it because with gains comes confidence!
About the Owner:
Natalie Giasullo is a former elementary teacher. She graduated cum laude with a B. A. in elementary education from St. Thomas University. She taught both primary and intermediate elementary in the public sector for 15 years. Additionally, she also worked as a private school teacher and assistant director for several years. She took a break from education when she became co-owner of Classic Cars of Palm Beach with her husband, John. Natalie found that she kept coming back to the local schools offering classroom teachers support with needed supplies. She also made it a point that the car business was to link up with the local high school in Jupiter. Each time a Jupiter High School Warrior, past or present, buys a car at their car lot, $100 goes to the Jupiter High School Care Team. This is a school organization that helps kids in crisis.
Recently, Natalie became an empty nester and started tutoring elementary students in their homes. She finds it extremely rewarding to work with students individually and seeing them make academic gains. Her lessons are aligned with the Palm Beach County School standards. Her approach is multisensory to engage the student as much as possible. She is currently working with first and second-grade students in Jupiter and Palm Beach Gardens.
To Create Acceptance and a Love for Learning: A Book Club/A Pre-Algebra Club for Kids while Moms Collaborate in an Adjoining Space
There are times throughout the school year that there are holiday breaks. Why not plan on meeting for a book or math club once or twice a week?
I will plan for sessions where kids can come together to discuss plot, character analysis, design literary posters and write good old-fashioned letters with provided art supplies. I love getting handwritten notes, don't you?
Students may also be given a reading assignment on a break. This can be a positive way to get it done.
I can also do a creative session with math and manipulatives. These options have many benefits.
1. Gives a break to TV and devices
2. Provides an opportunity for socializing in a positive setting
3. Feeds the thinking process and how to approach open-ended questions and translate thoughts onto paper.
4. Gives parents a chance to meet with their own book club and role model the love of reading/learning and how enjoyable it is to discuss and analyze.
Tell me a little about your student (grade, report card grades in reading and math, areas that need to be addressed, homework habits, and any individual education plans from school.) I will call you as soon as possible to discuss how I can help your child.
In regards to tutoring- JUST THE BEST! Natalie meets the needs of the child by evaluating exactly where they are and projects where they need to be. Plus, she gets the student to that point, by challenging the student, which I did not see enough at at school. Very professional and wonderful to work with.

While Struggling at school with math, my son Mauricio got all the support he needed to improve while getting excellent tutoring.

I am very happy to endorse Natalie Giasullo as an interventional asset for children with specific needs or those who desire extra instruction in elementary education.
Natalie is a blessing to my daughter who needs extra support in second grade due to an auditory processing disorder. She is very warm, patient and kind as she creates a fun learning environment. My daughter's grades have come up dramatically. It's obvious she enjoys working with children and is very qualified. Her true desire to help them succeed is evident from the very first session.

When I met him back in September he was not able to write when asked to. He was only able to read 3 words off a primer list and lacked confidence. Now I am happy to say, he is reading off a first grade list, is reading to his parents and wrote the composition above in which he wants to be a person that helps nature. I can't take full credit because I know he has wonderful teachers as well. However, I do know I helped through my supplemental program and that is a great feeling!!
This young lady has an area set up at home to assure a routine that develops strong academic habits. She has a selection of writing utensils and math manipulatives in her desk. Bravo to her parents!

I have had the pleasure of working with some really great teachers. At the moment I do have a high school Language Arts teacher that can also tutor in the home. Karen is certified in grades 6-12. She is the owner at Lifetales Media and is a former instructional specialist at Robeson Community College. She can help your child prepare for the SAT or ACT as well. She keeps track of pre test and progressive practice tests to note improvements and hit the target goals set up with you and your student.
I will be adding teachers by March, one of which is a former middle school teacher. Thinking forward, school break,including summer vacation, is a great time to target student needs and help them strengthen the skills they are weak in or even lacking. To set up a schedule for the spring and summer breaks, contact me email@example.com
