Hi! My name is Julie. I believe strong reading and writing skills are a necessary foundation for educational success. I have worked as a professional writer for many years after earning a Bachelor of Arts degree in Journalism. I used my skills to teach students to write as an instructor and tutor at a small, private academy. Working one-on-one and in small groups, I have helped dozens of students in elementary and middle school learn and master the fundamentals of good writing. Using a classic method known as copy work, my students practice writing well constructed sentences by re-writing sentences presented to them, using their own words. Over time, students become strong composition writers while also improving their skills of handwriting, grammar, and punctuation. In my experience, both boys and girls like the method because it is fun and easy to understand. I work with elementary students to understand and complete their homework assignments and all English related work from school.

My first experience as a reading tutor was working with my daughter when she was in Pre-K. Using a method called alpha phonics, which involves flash cards and memorization games, she rapidly grew her reading vocabulary at a very young age. Her solid foundation of strong reading skills helped her build strong writing skills as well. She earned a perfect score on the writing portion of the SAT and is on a full academic scholarship at college today. I believe her educational success was built on her strong reading and writing foundation. Other students I've tutored enjoy the alpha phonics method because it allows them to quickly make progress in their reading ability. Before they know it, they are reading wonderful children's books on their own. If you would like me to tutor you, I believe you can become a stronger reader and writer too. I think you might be surprised how much fun you'll have as you build new skills. I am happy to customize my instruction for each student's individual needs. My goal is for you to be successful! Please contact me and I will get back with you quickly to answer any questions and set up a tutoring session.

Using the accredited Calvert School curriculum, I homeschooled my daughter through 8th grade. She graduated with honors from high school and Magna Cum Laude from college with a degree in science. In addition to ELA, I taught her math using the highly challenging Singapore Math curriculum, science, history, and art.

I used a highly effective method called alpha phonics which allows the student to build reading vocabulary rapidly. I've tutored many students since, tailoring my techniques for each pupil. I have a warm, encouraging manner and can bring out the best in each child's abilities.

Great Reading tutor

Ms. Julie worked with my son. On first encounter she was able to get Alex engaged and motivated to learn the content. He mastered the material covered in the lesson which was a chalk for him before. She is an excellent tutor. I am excited to see my son develop as we continue to work with Ms. Julie.

Julie is great!

My son is learning so much with Julie. His reading has improved dramatically since he started working with her. She is very patient even when his mind wanders.
