About Julia

Hello!

I am Julia, a University of Michigan graduate. GO BLUE! Since my grade school days, I've been a lover of language and learning. From third grade onward, I proofread peers' papers, corrected friends' grammar, and loved to help the international students in my class. Not surprisingly, my love for language continued as I went to university.

While in undergrad, I worked at a local elementary school where I taught History and social studies, writing, and tutored ESL (English as a second language) and autism spectrum children that had difficulty with English comprehension. I helped students express themselves in a sophisticated manner, worked on grammar, and dissected their English language essays. I also enriched their minds with both domestic and international history. It was a great experience! I also spent time working at a non-profit organization where I helped elderly immigrants with language acquisition and conversational English.

In addition to my English skills, I speak Russian. I am a heritage speaker and received a formal Russian education while at U of M. Depending on the service you need, I am ready to help you with Russian, too!

For language acquisition to be successful, smooth, and painless (don't I sound like a dentist?!) the most important thing is to find an approachable tutor with a method that works for the student. I find that many students succeed by using movies, conversational pieces, news articles, and many other unique tools. This, of course, depends on the student's level of language. Rest assured of one thing: my approach is tailored to you, just like a good suit or dress.

Feel free to drop me a message if you are interested in finding out more about me and my tutoring capabilities. I would be happy to hear from you - no strings attached!

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.

Aspergers

I spent 2 years working at Pittsfield Elementary School in Ann Arbor, Michigan. There, my time was spent working with high-functioning autism and Asperger syndrome children. This job opportunity was a part of an experiential learning sociology class. I learned about various teaching techniques and student learning methods. Combined with the knowledge I learned from professors and books, my experience with Asperger syndrome students allowed me to grasp both ends of the autism spectrum and how to effectively communicate, teach, and enrich their minds.
