I have been engaged in helping others for as long as I can remember. I am a certified English Teacher with an ESOL accreditation and have worked tutoring students in a variety of venues. I have many highly qualified evaluations under my belt and am always working to improve my professional talents. I received my MA in Writing and Rhetoric in order to further my knowledge and help students on a deeper level. At the same time I gained a graduate certificate in Community College Teaching for adult learners. I taught First Year Composition at the local university for a year before taking a position teaching 9th grade students (PreAP/gifted and Honors students) for 3 years. I became the 9th grade team leader as well as presented workshops for my colleagues on helping engage students more effectively. In an effort to always be improving, I now have my gifted endorsement and am certified as an online instructor. I am also working toward a Ph.D. in Texts and Technology. I currently teach at the local university full time and have a flexible schedule for outside tutoring sessions.
I have multiple ways to help students depending on how they learn best. I have high standards for my students and push them to achieve at their very best. My goal is to help students have the confidence to achieve their goals and see the results of that confidence as grades/test scores improve.
I specialize in helping students in SAT (writing and reading), English literature, English Grammar, FSA Prep, and writing skills (such as in college essays and applications). I have tutored SAT with both my classroom of students as a group and on an individual basis in tutoring. Due to my ESOL accreditation, I have also helped many students learn English conversational skills. I have helped students understand the workings of grammar and worked through the intricacies of high level literature. I taught 9th, 10th, 11th, and 12th grade English Honors as well as First Year Composition students. I have found that having students use problem-solvin
Top Tutor - A Complete Professional
If you are looking for a tutor, you’d be doing yourself a disservice if you didn’t give Julie an opportunity to connect with you. From the very start, you will see Julie’s high level of organization, planning, and flexibility which equates to her being able to create a plan that is on track for your student to learn at a challenging and yet not overwhelming pace. She’s excellent at building rapport with students and obviously has a love for seeing a students grow and succeed. If you are looking for the cheapest tutor then understand this isn’t Julie because she’s an expert and can command a higher price, however, if you are looking for the best value for your money, Julie is absolutely that tutor. Thank you for all you’ve done to open my students eyes and make him a much more confident and educated young adult!Dan, 7 lessons with Julie
Organized and Professional
I had a great experience with Julie studying for the verbal section of the SAT (both the writing and the reading parts of the test) I improved tremendously over the sessions, with my verbal score increasing from just 600 to 700 in a month. Julie was always punctual and came prepared for the sessions. She created plans for the lessons and organized homework prior to the session. I'm really thankful to Julie for her help to achieve my goal!Can, 10 lessons with Julie

She taught me a great amount of writing skills for college essays. She was also very encouraging when I would be stressed about writers block. I would recommend her to everyone I know as she is an amazing tutor!Heidi, 12 lessons with Julie
The Best Tutor
Julie is a grade saver. At first, I thought her rate was expensive however after the experience I had it was more than worth it. We discussed my needs for the research report that I was doing and I sent it to her. In less than 24 hours she had the report back to me with a very thorough review and caught a lot of the mistakes that I was making. She also caught that I was doing the assignment incorrectly and gave me a lot more ideas to fix what was wrong. She was also very encouraging when I was frustrated and provided emotional support as I gutted my entire assign the and redid it. You would be crazy not to take her on as a tutor in letter help you will not regret it.Lance, 1 lesson with Julie
Julie is an amazing tutor; she takes the time to help her students fully understand the material at hand. she was well prepared for our sessions and made the most of our time. I highly recommend Julie to anyone who needs help with drafts or essays. She taught me methods to outline and write that I will use in the future!Bruce, 12 lessons with Julie

Knowledgeable and patient tutor
Julie is the best tutor. My son had been struggling with his writing until he started working with Julie. In a short time he went from a C to a B, and now he is getting closer to an A. Julie is very knowledgeable and patient. I am grateful of how much she has helped him build his confidence in writing. I totally recommend her!Maria, 17 lessons with Julie
Julie is a fantastic tutor with a lot of patience. She is helping my daughter who is in 9th grade dramatically improve her reading and writing skills. Julie is reliable and she goes above and beyond with her efforts to help my daughter. I would strongly recommend her for anyone. She prepares the lesson days prior to the class with a well-planned schedule and uses user friendly tools making it easy to communicate. My daughter seems to be gaining more confidence with Julie’s tutoring.Sam, 72 lessons with Julie
Great strategies and techniques
Ms. K. really helped my daughter identify the areas she was struggling in and created a plan of attack just in the first session. She helped my daughter tremendously improve those areas in ways that worked for her. Ms. K. is very well versed in the strategies and techniques that she teaches and has helped my daughter improve her score a lot. I would definitely recommend Ms. K. as an exceptional English teacher.Giridhar, 12 lessons with Julie
