About Julie

I am a lawyer, college teacher, and mother of a five-year-old. I mention the last item because moms know how many questions a 5-year-old asks! Kids want (and rightly so) simple, easily understandable explanations to their very complex questions.

Very similarly, anyone studying law, government, civics, or political science needs a tutor who can take very complex, abstract concepts that are brand-new to the student, and break them down into very simple, easily understood terms - and patiently answer a million questions along the way!

A little more about me - I graduated from U.C. Berkeley in 1997 with my B.A. in English, and from U.C. Berkeley's School of Law (Boalt Hall) in 2001. I graduated in the top 15% of my class for both undergrad and law school. I have been a practicing litigation attorney for the last 12 years, and a college instructor for the last year. I have truly found my calling in teaching - I love it, and (with all due modesty) the students I teach tell me that they learn more from me than from any of their other instructors.

I am friendly and easygoing. Please don't hesitate to get in touch with me to see if I can assist you!

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.

Criminal Justice

I am a licensed attorney, and have worked in the San Francisco D.A.'s Office (the criminal prosecutor for San Francisco). I have also taught criminal justice at Heald College. I attended Boalt Hall school of law, one of the top ten law schools in the country, and I graduated in the top 15% of my class. I focus on constitutional aspects of criminal law - the constitutional rights of criminal suspects/defendants.

Political Science

I am a licensed attorney in California; I graduated in the top 15% of my class from Boalt Hall School of Law (U.C. Berkeley), one of the nation's top 10 law schools. I have taught constitutional law and other legal and civics based classes at Heald College, and have a firm grasp on the nation's political and government system.
