Hello!

My name is Iulia (pronounced Yulia) and I am a tutor because I love to help people increase their understanding and proficiency in academic subjects, but also because in doing so I help people dissect problems and evaluate them, helping to build students' reasoning, problem solving and communication skills - abilities that are necessary in all areas of life.

That said, tutoring is something I am passionate about because the basis of all work and communication involves logic and flexible thinking and I love to help people see the connections between new and old material and be able to understand school subjects more easily and quickly, as well as see new familiar material in new and different ways.

I take my job of helping students be able to master new and difficult material to heart and I look for the problem areas that each student has, in order to tailor lessons to what the student needs to work on most. I love to do this because I want to help open up doors for students, so that their success in school can turn into opportunities that will take them further in life. Through tutoring, I seek to empower people to take what they learn and use it in future classes and in other areas of life.

I know I am just one tutor but I really desire to make an impact in the world and it is absolutely satisfying to make a difference in my students' lives. Through my work as a tutor, I hope to make the world a better place, one student at a time.

I teach English to adult English language learners, so I have experience breaking down the inner workings of English language. Be it mechanics or usage, I would be happy to explain to you how different the English language works in literature, writing and conversation.

Spanish

I majored in Spanish at the University of Delaware and as someone who already speaks another Latin language (Romanian) I think of my self as being half a native Spanish speaker because there are many similarities between Spanish and Romanian in grammar, spelling and pronunciation. Also I find that there is a stronger connection between Spanish and Romanian than Spanish and English in how the languages create meaning and that is something I share with my students to help them understand the Spanish language.

If you are looking to help your student with their work, whether it’s focused on the common core, Singapore math or for homeschooling, I am here to explain the material to students and teach them how to reason through it to be able to solve problems on their own. I provide to the point explanations, examples and practice problems so that students will gain the experience necessary to do well in school.

Handwriting,

Handwriting

In instructing handwriting, I will show students how to form parts of letters first (based on the different types of lines and curves of letters and numbers), while showing them how to form those segments on paper. After showing them how to write those sections of letters and numbers, I will show them how to write whole letters and entire numbers, followed by letter combinations (if they are practicing cursive). I will also provide letters and numbers for my students to trace, in case the need arises, including ones with numbered arrows, that show the directions in which to write said graphemes, because I learned in my education classes that they aid students in learning how to form letters and numbers. For students who confuse how to write letters such as b d and p, (which is common), I will teach them left from right and top from bottom to help them differentiate between those letters, and if students are having trouble remembering how to write letters in general, I will provide them with an alphabet strip that has the letters with numbered arrows that shows students how to form those letters. Last but not least, to contextualize the writing practice, I will dictate words and sentences for students to write, or ask them to answer questions to practice their handwriting fluency. Preparing students for this task also involves teaching them how to form punctuation marks and give them examples of how to space their words appropriately.
Reading,

Reading

Reading is a complex process that requires being able to decipher a text and using many different skills to comprehend what the text is saying. I can teach students how to read, as well as to understand what they read. Understanding a passage requires the reader to connect what the passage is saying to real life or to something else that was stated (or implied) in the text. The trouble is when students have trouble making those connections or miss what was said, or meant, earlier in the book. As a tutor, I ask students to put themselves in the situations depicted in their readings and consider what the text means by asking different questions and using what questions they have about the text to stimulate connections between ideas, and to draw conclusions and inferences from them. I do this to help students see there is more than one dimension (that is, more than meets the eye) about the matters addressed in the reading.

In English I have worked with high school and college students as well as adults. When I work with students in English , my job is to help them write papers, find what to write about, edit their papers and at times, help them understand passages that they had to read for class. In my approach to tutoring writing, I help students generate questions they could write about that stem from their own interest, and I find that that way, students are able to pen out their ideas more easily. I also teach English as a Second Language classes and I have helped English language learners write and edit short pieces class.

Algebra 1

In Algebra I, I explain to students topics such as: solving multi-step equations and inequalities working and changing between equations that have different forms solving for systems of equations (where you have to solve for a value when you have 2 equations to start with) and how to graph them how to work with scientific notation and laws of exponents proportional reasoning measures of central tendency and data displays factoring polynomials and simplifying them using basic operations and solving for and graphing absolute value equations and inequalities. I also provide students with examples, word problems and practice problems.
Algebra 2,

Algebra 2

In Algebra II, I explain to students topics such as: how to solve and graph linear equations and inequalities, systems of equations and inequalities and piece-wise functions, absolute value functions and logarithmic functions how to work with and solve for different aspects of a quadratic function using different methods of doing so how to graph square root and cube root functions how to work with roots, powers and complex numbers and the basics of working with trigonometric rations and functions. I also provide students with examples, word problems and practice problems. I love to show students the "why" of Algebra, to help students see the connections between the procedures they are doing and the reasons why those steps are necessary to build in students a stronger appreciation for this discipline.

Math has long been my favorite subject in school, and one of my strongest subjects as well. When my siblings and I were in high school, my parents bought SAT books for us and paid for tutors or tutoring programs for us so we could succeed on the SAT. I still have the books we used, and therefore have number of sources that I can use to teach the test strategy and how to solve problems on the SAT. I will use one book as the basis of instruction, and gather additional examples from the others to provide a thorough preparation for the SAT math test.

Excellent tutor

She patiently works with the student taking her time in explaining concepts in a very clear way. She find ways to make the student understand. She establishes a great relationship with the student that they look forward to working with her.

Joan, 26 lessons with Iulia

Calm and patient

Iulia was very patient and encouraging in working with my child on her handwriting skills. She has a very gentle way of keeping my daughter on task and guiding her through the lesson.

Melissa , 13 lessons with Iulia

First session went great!

Iulia is a patient and experienced tutor who is willing to go above and beyond to help you out! When I mentioned that I wanted to teach ESL students, she gave me some nice tips on how to teach English.

David, 3 lessons with Iulia

Absolutely fantastic dual-language elementary math tutor!

Iulia has been tutoring my son for elementary math since last summer, and she's made a real difference in his math grades. He attends a dual-language elementary school, and all his math classes are taught in Spanish, even though he is not a native Spanish speaker. Iulia's knowledge of the Spanish language and proficiency in math make her the perfect tutor for my son. Her assistance has enabled him to excel in math, even though his tests and homework are written in Spanish. Iulia is kind, honest, patient, and a very hard worker!

Yvonne, 75 lessons with Iulia
Tutor responded:

Dear Mrs. Yvonne, thank you so much for your encouraging words. It has been great working with your son and I always try to provide enough examples to ensure students master and become comfortable with the subjects they learn. Thank you again for your support!

Helpful

She helped me with understanding words, reading, passages and questions. I like her because she is helpful and funny.

Clay, 14 lessons with Iulia
Tutor responded:

Clay, it's great to have your feedback!

Great tutor

Iulia was very helpful. She showed me how to use Excel and how to create, manage and expand and work within the cells! She explained things very well and used good examples! She used some of her own data to give me the ability to work with real numbers and information. I am now beginning to be able to enter and manage my own data.

I'm glad I could help Dave! It's great to hear your feedback!

Patient

Iulia worked very well with my grandson. He is going into the 3rd grade. When I try to work with him, he will work for about 30 minutes then start complaining. She worked with him for about 3 hours. She was very patient with him.
