I graduated from UCLA and tutor multiple subjects. I help students with writing and math, as well as anatomy, physiology, psychology, statistics and algebra. I am especially good at helping students with ACT test prep, and writing college essays. I can explain the material in different ways until your student understands it. Most of my students are in high school and college, but I also have experience teaching and tutoring elementary and middle school students. My home-educated children have been well prepared for college, receiving full scholarships and entrance to tough UC schools.
My students tell me that working with me improves their understanding and their grades significantly. I know how to tailor the material to your student's needs to keep up in the classroom and to truly understand the concepts.
I am available for weekly tutoring throughout the semester or just an intensive few visits for planning, finals prep, or to help with difficult material.

Proofreading

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

Homeschool,

Homeschool

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.

I completed a week-long 40-hour Study Skills intensive at Santa Barbara City College. I have proficiency from that seminar and also skills I have used with 5-12 grade and college students. I can show students how to study material from a textbook, breaking it down into tasks. I can teach how to take notes, how to study from notes, writing and rewriting as necessary. I can teach students how to make a note-page of important information to study from. I can teach how to listen and take notes from aural media. I can help students tailor their approach to time management, choosing one of several different ways to organize time depending on their learning style, making the effort and time most efficient for them.

Homeschool

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.

Nara, 1 lesson with Julie

Supportive, encouraging, and helpful!

Julie has been so helpful to my son in approaching his college essays. He was very anxious, and avoided getting started, but Julie helped him at first just to start brainstorming ideas without self-judgement, and she continues to help him refine his thoughts and edit his writing. However his college admissions turn out I'm grateful to Julie for providing him the structure and support to do his best.

The absolute best tutor on Wyzant

Julie is the greatest tutor and essay assisting I ever had. In my writing, I tended to have a long sentence and essay. She guided me through valuable techniques to make my essay concise. Moreover, she is blessed with her way around vocabulary that depicts specifically to your needs. I needed help with the UC application, and her assistance had changed the whole dynamic of the essay. I cannot thank her enough for all her dedication towards teaching and helping students in need.
