About Julia

My name is Julia and I am here to help you prepare for your next exam! I specialize in TOEFL and IELTS exam preparation. My lessons are interactive and fast-paced, so you'll find that studying with me is much different from studying for TOEFL/IELTS alone.

I received my B.A in Latin American Studies with a minor in Spanish at Boston University. I also received my Certification for English Language Teaching to Adults (CELTA), which is an intensive English as a Second Language teaching course accredited by Cambridge University. I have taught at Language Academies in Boston and Universities in Japan. Teaching is both my profession and my passion!

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.

English

I have taught English to non-native speakers of all levels from beginner to advanced. I also have experience editing academic assignments on a variety of topics.

ESL/ESOL

ESL is my specialty as a teacher. I have experience in large and small classes of students from all over the world. I help my students improve their fluency by working on grammar, vocabulary, reading and speaking skills. My students also have fun!

IELTS

After teaching for a year in Spain I have become an expert on this examination. This exam is very popular in Great Britain and therefore I was frequently asked about preparation methods while in Europe. My method of teaching this test is to familiarize students with the test as much as possible and to break down each section so that they are comfortable with all aspects of the test. The writing portion of this exam is especially challenging for students so I have many exercises to practice this section.

TOEFL

TOEFL is my favorite challenge. I have taught TOEFL preparation in the classroom and one to one. I use specific test strategies to prepare English students of all levels for this difficult exam.

Writing

I have been teaching students the art of the 5 paragraph essay for over two years. I mostly give writing lessons to prepare for TOEFL and IELTS, but I also work on cover letters and resumes with my students.

She is kind and patient!

Today was my first class with Julia and I'm very happy and satisfied with the results. I could learn many things. I also had the opportunity to correct my mistakes, which I think it is really important to have a good English. She was prepared to give me the class. I'm really excited to have more classes with her! She did a really good job!!!
