About Julia

I am a recent graduate of Oberlin College with a BA in creative writing and cinema studies. I have a tremendous amount of experience tutoring and mentoring students in reading and writing in a variety of diverse settings. As a Teaching Assistant at Oberlin College, I worked in close, one-on- one capacities with intro-level students to improve their technical writing skills and their ability to assess their own work. As a mentor at the Apollo Outreach Initiative, I taught media literacy and storytelling to low income youth from the Cleveland area. I learned to encourage students to trust their ideas, recognize their own creative potential, and understand that their visions for the future are not far fetched fantasies but achievable goals to work towards. Working at AOI inspired me to begin volunteering at the Cook County Juvenile Detention Center as a literacy tutor, where I currently tutor 2 students twice a week.

I am friendly, hard-working, and excited to work with you! I am comfortable tutoring in the areas of history, writing, and reading.
