I'm Julia and I have a passion for helping students in need succeed! I recently graduated from UCLA with a degree in Neuroscience and an associates degree in chemistry. I personally believe that all students who seek outside help and other resources to gain knowledge are some of the brightest and smartest students around. With outside help you gain a deeper understanding of the material and a new perspective that can come in handy on the big test day or just daily studying.
As for my tutoring specialties, my subjects include chemistry, biology, English (reading, writing, vocabulary), and algebraic courses; algebra 1, pre algebra, & intermediate college algebra. I approach learning in a holistic way, my main goal is to not only answer questions about the course material, but also improve a students independent study skills. Similar to the famous quote, "You can give a man a fish and feed him for a day or teach a man to fish and feed him for a lifetime," applies to my tutoring method.
During my tutoring sessions, I enjoy using my neuroscience degree to create solutions that help my students better memorize the material and learn it efficiently. Thereby, the tutoring I offer becomes more personalized to their needs and best learning style. Also, I offer helpful brainy tips and tricks that give students an edge up in preparing for those big test days.
I understand that too much academic studying can become tiring...I offer sewing classes for those looking to start a fun and creative hobby! A bit of a "brain break!" Beginners welcome and no sewing machine is required; although it is preferred. I have experience in teaching youth sewing classes and how to use a sewing machine in a safe, fun way.
