My name is Julia and I am here to help you prepare for your next exam! I specialize in TOEFL, IELTS, Cambridge First or Advanced Certificate and NATO's Oral Proficiency Exam. I am also available for conversational classes in English and Spanish.
I received my B.A in Latin American Studies with a minor in Spanish at Boston University in May 2012. I also received my Certification for English Language Teaching to Adults (CELTA), which is an intensive English as a Second Language teaching course accredited by Cambridge University. I have taught test preparation in Boston and in Madrid, Spain.
I am an enthusiastic, engaging teacher with experience as a literacy tutor with both adults and children at the Intergenerational Literacy Program in Chelsea, MA. I tutored adults studying for their high school equivalency exams. I also worked with children who were English language learners to develop literacy and fluency skills.
I speak Spanish and I also understand a little French and some Brazilian Portuguese.
ESL is my specialty as a teacher. I have experience in large and small classes of students from all over the world. I help my students improve their fluency by working on grammar, vocabulary, reading and speaking skills. My students also have fun!
After teaching for a year in Spain I have become an expert on this examination. This exam is very popular in Great Britain and therefore I was frequently asked about preparation methods while in Europe. My method of teaching this test is to familiarize students with the test as much as possible and to break down each section so that they are comfortable with all aspects of the test. The writing portion of this exam is especially challenging for students so I have many exercises to practice this section.
I worked as a literacy tutor in an after school program for 2 years during college. I worked with children ranging from ages 4-13. Many of my students developed a love for reading while working with me.
I have studied Spanish for 16 years and I spent one year abroad in Ecuador at a private university. I can teach beginner and low-intermediate levels.
