About Julia

I have been a writing tutor for several years now, mostly for high school and college students. I have a lot of experience with thesis statements, general essay writing, SAT/ACT/GRE essay writing, personal statements, proofreading theses, and working with students on improving their vocabulary and grammar. In terms of my writing background, I scored a 12 on my SAT essay, an 11 on the ACT essay, and a 5 on the GRE essay. I am passionate about students having a strong vocabulary, good grammar, and the ability to write an amazing thesis statement and overall essay. I do my best to provide thoughtful and critical feedback, and give 100% of my time and energy into each essay I look over, no matter how long or short. My ultimate goal is to help students become better writers - individuals who think and write critically and effectively with conviction and poise.

I recently finished my thesis for my Master's degree in Equity and Social Justice in Education from San Francisco State University, and am currently working part-time as an English and writing tutor. Before I decided to pursue my Masters degree I actually was a high school history teacher and a college advisor for a small school in Northern California. I have also been a college personal statement editor since I was a freshman in college. I know a lot of students are stressed out about their personal statements, and so on top of a very strong command of the English language, I have a lot of practice working with students to write something that is dynamic and from the heart. Admission officers read through thousands upon thousands of applications and personal statements each cycle, and I believe that I have the talent and experience necessary to help students write essays that set them apart and really make a impact on the readers.

It is usually easier for students to meet one-on-one, but I am also available for sessions via email/Skype. I prefer to meet students in public places like coffee shops or cafes. I do charge $3 extra for any sessions that take place outside of downtown San Francisco (to cover public transportation costs).
