I have a PhD and lots of experience teaching English. I have taught literature and writing to students from 1st grade through college. I like to make learning fun, and my method of teaching writing is particularly effective. I also find helping students improve their SAT scores and write winning college entrance essays very rewarding. I have some great success stories. Let me know if you'd like to see my references. And while I'm not a native speaker of French, I love the language and culture and am experienced and successful at teaching introductory French in ways that make it fun for young or old.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have a teaching credential for California for High School English. In addition, I have completed coursework toward an elementary credential including educational theory, child development, elementary math, a reading specialist course, as well as many writing workshops. Most importantly, I have experience teaching grades K-6th in a private girls' school in California. I am also homeschooling my own children and tutoring many others of elementary ages.

ESL/ESOL

For many years, I have taught English classes at the high school and college levels that were more than 50% non-native speakers of English. I have taken classes and attended seminars to learn how best to serve these populations. My experience and training has allowed me to help students achieve their goals quickly and effectively.

Spanish

I have many years' experience teaching Spanish to students of all ages. My PhD is in Comparative Literatures, which means I studied literature in different languages, one of which was Spanish. In addition to studying Spanish at the graduate level, I also lived and taught in Mexico City. I like to make learning languages practical and fun.

The Best!! — Ms. Julie has been of great help this past months. I would not have been able to get accepted to Yale without her help. She helped me with my essays from the beginning to the very end, always there through every step of the way. She also helped me with with anything I needed for my AP English class. She always finds the time to help me, even with my crazy schedule. She is truly the best!! ...
