About Julia

Simply put, I KNOW school. I know school life can be stressful. I know many students have lots of commitments, busy schedules, and competing priorities that pull them in many directions. It can be hard to balance it all. My professional background and individualized approach allow me to help students to manage academic demands, develop organizational skills, and to meet challenges with greater ease and effectiveness.

I am a full time academic tutor and Co-Active Life Coach. I bring a depth and breadth of experience to my one-on-one sessions with students, having worked as a tutor and academic coach for over 7 years. In addition to this, I taught middle school English and history for three years. I currently work with students of all ages and offer a uniquely designed program for college students.

I graduated Phi Beta Kappa from Wesleyan University, majoring in American Studies and Environmental Studies. I am also a certified Co-Active Life Coach through the Coaches Training Institute. This training provides me with invaluable, unique tools to help students learn and thrive both academically and personally. I believe in using humor and honesty in all of my sessions. Above all else is my extensive experience building successful, effective, and empowering tutoring relationships where students gain confidence as they meet their goals and integrate life-long skills for satisfaction and fulfillment in their lives.

My coaching approach works because it is custom designed for each individual. Students gain confidence in their ability to take on new challenges while discovering how they learn best. My goal is to empower each student as they acquire new skills and techniques for taking charge of academic demands and their lives in general. I love my connections with students and believe it is the trusting, authentic relationships that we form together that contribute to their success. I have see how invaluable my one-on-one relationships with students are in helping them to gain self-confidence and enjoyment of the learning process. I encourage you to reach out and see how I might be of service.

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.

Career Development

I am a Certified Professional Co-Active Coach (CPCC) through the Coaches Training Institute, the gold standard of professional coaching organizations. This was a rigorous training to help people in terms of career and life development. I work with people to identify goals and I have been trained to help people determine important decisions related to career, work, further education and professional pursuits. In this realm, I coach people of all ages related to career.

Social Studies

I taught 6th and 8th grade social studies at an private independent day school for three years. I developed my own curriculum that continues to be used today. I graduated with high honors, Phi Beta Kappa from Wesleyan University and I majored in American Studies. I continue to help students one-on-one to develop skills to learn social studies concepts, geography, and current events. I love teaching social studies and helping students to engage in history and the world around them.

Sociology

I graduated from Wesleyan University with High Honors, Phi Beta Kappa. My major was American Studies, which is an interdisciplinary major related to history, English, and sociology. I took many sociology courses in order to fulfill the course requirements.

Study Skills

I have over 7 years' experience helping students develop study skills that work for them. In addition to my extensive experience working one-on-one with people, I have also been a classroom teacher where I also focused on study skill habits, preparing middle school students to transition to the demands of high school. All of my former students remark how invaluable the study skills are that I taught them. I have a variety of techniques and methods in my arsenal depending on the type of learner. Test preparation, note taking, and long-term assignment planning are all critical parts of this work.

Writing

I have a degree in American Studies. I taught English and history and enjoyed helping students gain comfort and confidence in the writing process. I have worked with students through literature, history, and sociology courses at the high school and college level.

Yoga

I completed a 200 hr yoga teacher training at West Hartford Yoga in West Hartford, CT under the teaching of Barbara Ruzansky. I owned my own studio and have taught privately and in studios since 2012. I believe that yoga is wonderful way to help manage stress that often arises when dealing with the demands of school and learning. I am qualified to teach yoga sessions and integrate yoga as a stress management technique.

Julia helped my daughter with history and is very knowledgeable about the subject and the needs of an AP class. But what really sets her apart is her kind enthusiasm, strong communications skills and excellent rapport with teens.
