About Julian

Hello everyone my name is Julian. I just relocated to Huntsville, AL from Philadelphia, PA. I went to elementary school in Philadelphia, PA where I was born and raised and attended middle school in Huntsville and High School in Toney, so the area is not foreign to me. When I was in school, my strengths were spelling, reading and making friends. I graduated from high school and received my diploma with the class of 2000. Since I graduated, I have done construction, driving, labor, marketing, moving and retail jobs ...as well as working with food. I enjoy helping people and can teach anyone to do what I already know how to do. Most of the time I can teach them to do a better job than me. Friends of mine always tell me I should be a teacher, but I know that a full-time classroom setting is not for me.

In 2006 I started doing freelance photography for local newspapers with my brother and uncle. After a month or two, I got my own camera and started to do my own thing. I spent the first year learning how to use the manual settings and how to grow a client base. During my first year I photographed everything from landscapes to portraiture, to runway, to children's birthday parties. After my first year, I decided to specialize in events. Events cover a wide range of jobs, and I enjoy the challenge that comes with changing environments.

If you think I might be able to help you, don't hesitate to send me a message. Thank you for reading.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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 Math

In elementary school, I made the A/B honor roll every semester. Now that I have children I teach them all of the ways I know to make every subject easier so they don't have to struggle with their work. They also make either A or A/B honor roll and members of honor society (my mother says she is impressed with how little help they need with their homework). Elementary school math was a breeze for me, but it wasn't until high school that I found any difficulty with math.

Grammar

I know how to speak properly to the degree that it frustrates people in a casual setting. People often tell me "I know how to talk" and that they're not practicing for a job interview.

Photography

I have run my own photography business since 2006. I have experience shooting landscapes, youth sports, runways, photo shoots, weddings, birthday parties, red carpet affairs and several other events. I have had contracts with Crown Royal and Camel Cigarettes for event photography. In early 2014 I sold (the non-exclusive rights to) five archived photos, from my first 2-3 years of shooting, for $125 each.

Reading

I was taught to read by watching my mother explain letter sounds my older brother. After I learned to do it myself my brother was always asking me how to pronounce words, because it came to me more naturally than it did for him. All the way through high school, when I was asked to read aloud, the other students in the class would always ask me to slow down.

Spelling

I never studied etymology in depth, but I understand how complex words can be dissected into root words, and how prefixes and suffixes require adding or omitting letters to spell words properly. I know how certain letters (and the sounds they make) only work together when the rules of spelling are applied (i.e., any word containing the letter 'q,' where q is not followed by a 'u,' is probably not an American English word).

Vocabulary

Choosing the correct words to use will usually determine whether or not the listener is able to understand the message being conveyed by the speaker. There are times where a speaker may have to consider more than one approach, if the listener does not understand the meaning of the words used by the speaker. When people are at a loss for a particular word, during conversations, I am usually able to guess the word they're trying to find in their memory bank. Vocabulary is very important when writing because homonyms are often replaced with a word that means something completely different (i.e. to/too/two).
