Proofreading

Over the last few years, I have proofread many people's papers, essays and even novels. One published author used my proofreading skills and one who is yet to be published. I can proofread for technical errors, and check for MLA mistakes. I excel at offering advice on word choice as well.

Elementary Education

I have home educated my four children for fifteen years successfully. I taught them each to read, write and perform arithmetic problems. I taught them history, literature, science and basic art. I can help with elementary, middle and high school. I can help determine a courseload and to help make sure high school classes are up to college standards and records are kept. I can help make transcripts and help plan for transcripts. My oldest successfully earned a 100% scholarship to a private university and got a 31 on the ACT, and has greater than a 3.5. GPA after her sophomore year. My second is thriving in theater and undergraduate studies. My third child successfully shifted into the local public high school as a freshman without any deficits. I still home educate my fourth child.

Algebra 1,

Algebra 1

I have 7 years experience with Algebra 1 students, both common core and earlier methods. Knowing that many students lack the tools to be able to identify what approach or formula to use, I focus on making sure student understands concepts AND how they relate to different problems, helping them know how to approach new problems. Each textbook teaches differently, so I like to look over their textbook in the first meeting so I can best help them.

Great fit!

I am an adult returning to achieve a masters degree. Julie was wonderful to work with. She was able to help me organize the structure of my paper and provided lots of insight on my topic. She was patient and encouraging while giving me the appropriate feedback making my writing stronger. I feel like I’ve already learned quite a bit from our first meeting. I look forward to working with her again.
