Bio

I enjoy helping students in general chemistry, biochemistry, AP chemistry, SAT II chemistry and any other school chemistry test preparation.

I hold a B.S. in chemistry and M.S. in biochemistry. Using molecular cloning, I have also conducted research in biochemistry and neuroscience laboratories at UC Riverside and San Diego State University.

I enjoy helping students in general chemistry, biochemistry, AP chemistry, SAT II chemistry and any other school chemistry test preparation.

I hold a B.S. in chemistry and M.S. in biochemistry. Using molecular cloning, I have also conducted research in biochemistry and neuroscience laboratories at UC Riverside and San Diego State University. I have extensive teaching experience in college-level general chemistry, biochemistry and neuroscience from three different universities, as well as experience in tutoring individuals at both the high school and college levels. My goal is to help any student understand, summarize, and prepare for comprehensive chemistry exams in order to obtain a desired result in a relatively short amount of time.

I am excited to work with passionate students in achieving their goals!

AP chemistry should be as high-level as a general chemistry course in college. In order to guide students, I have notes and worksheets organized by topic on my website. My AP students solve practice questions from previous exams created by CollegeBoard on each topic. AP chemistry is usually an easier course to approach due to the plethora of information available online and the types of questions on the test administered by CollegeBoard. The SAT chemistry subject test is easier for some students because of the simple question types and shorter proctored test time. Although it often requires many months of organized preparation in order to obtain a score over 90%, I have had some very successful students achieve this in only six to ten weeks. Students lose interest in the subject primarily because of a poor understanding of stoichiometry. Once they understand the concepts of a mole and of molarity, most of them are comfortable with solving comprehensive questions in more advanced topics. In order to help students, I teach a fairly simple approach to Lewis dot structures, and utilize model kits to simulate molecular geometry. I also introduce a shortcut to hybridization that many students find to be helpful.

Great teacher !!

As a freshman doing AP chemistry my daughter needed help to be perfect at it after having her lesson with Julie, my daughter felt very confident and satisfied. Julie understands each student's individual needs and weak areas and she works keeping that in mind.

Fantastic tutor! Gained 100 points in SAT Chem in 2 months!

We highly recommend Julie! She was an exceptional tutor in helping my daughter improve her SAT Chem score a 100 points to a 760 this past summer! Julie is very knowledgeable about chemistry and highly skilled at identifying students’ weaknesses and correcting them through targeted practice and exercises. In addition, Julie is very patient and encouraging in building students’ confidence. Her methodology is very effective and produces great results!

S, 23 lessons with Julie

Very helpful, knowledgeable and truly concern about the student's learning.

Preparation to study Chemistry, including math, scientific notations, SI prefixes, etc. She was willing to provide extra online help and homework review throughout the week after we had the lesson on the weekend.

Knowledgeable and Engaging

Julie taught me stoichemetry and nomenclature in AP Chemistry which was abit confusing for me before the lesson but she was able to simplify it. She is full of energy and kept me engaged.

Excellent Tutor

My daughter is struggling with Honor Chemistry at school, and has low confidence in the subject. I'm so glad she found Julie. Julie evaluated her, designed a plan for her to improve her grade, created daily worksheets and mock test questions. Julie gives deadlines to finish each task, and check progress with email exchanges. Over just two months, my daughter improved her grade a lot. She came to Julie with B- average, and her final grade is A! Thank you Julie!.

Experienced tutor

Julie is a highly experienced tutor that will help you get a higher score in SAT chem. She has a lesson plan and send out work every night for you to practice and review. I feel a lot more relieved that I found her because not a lot of other classes are so diligent in helping and catered personally to the students. Thank you Julie!

Encouraging Chem Tutor

Julie took the time to figure out my daughters needs and put together a plan to help her succeed. Gave my daughter encouragement needed to continue. Filled in a lot of missing pieces to help understand some concepts.
