About Juliana

Hello!

My name is Juliana. Nice to meet you! :)

If you are looking for individualized instruction, for yourself or your child, then we are a great fit. I enjoy creating engaging lessons based on my students' needs and interests. My second job is working full time as a Special Education Team Leader. I am excited to share with you different learning tips and strategies that can help you succeed. I take pride in doing my job well, so I specialize in tutoring two subjects: ESL and Math. I want to share with you why I am so confident I can make my students successful in these areas.

ESL
I have both education and experience teaching English as a Second Language. I will be done with my Master of Science in ESOL in May 2016. Also, I will finish graduate work at Dominican University in December 2015 to receive ESL/Bilingual Endorsement in the state of Illinois. I taught ESL online and in person. Most importantly, English is my second native language, so I personally know what it takes to be successful learning a language as a child. Lastly, I am learning a foreign language now as an adult, so I can help you acquire these skills at any age.

Math
I am very passionate about mathematics because it helps us understand the world and make our lives easier. For example, what coupon is a better deal: 20% off or 5 dollars off? Improving your math skills has so many benefits like saving money, getting a promotion, or being accepted into a better college. I have a math degree and I have been tutoring students in mathematics and teaching it since I have been in college. Some people say "I am not good at math!" and that is simply not true. Everyone can be good at math, you just haven't met the right person to teach it to you. I believe I am good at math but I always feel there is room for improvement and that is why for the last year I keep taking graduate courses at University of Chicago to help me teach it even better.

My interests outside of tutoring include spending time with friends, playing video-games, traveling, and cooking. I am a happy person and I love to share the knowledge I have with others who want. I enjoy spending time with my students, knowing that I am helping them become successful. If you have any questions, please ask. I try to be flexible with schedules and rates. I work in Chicago, so I am willing to travel to Downtown and the Northwest Suburbs.

Hope to talk to you soon,

Juliana

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.

Common Core

I have worked and currently work as a special Education Teacher. We are required to structure our lessons based on Common Core standards. I am familiar with both mathematics and English language arts K-8. I serve as a teacher leader who not only makes her own lessons but oversees the development of lesson plans for novice teachers. I also had to modify lesson plans for special needs students, so I have a deep knowledge of the requirements of each standard.

Russian

I was born in Russia and lived there for 13 years. I still speak to my family in Russian. I can read, write, and speak fluently. I will finish a bilingual certification for English/Russian from Dominican University in December 2015. I took a Russian fluency test for ISBE. I lead a MeetUp group for Russian Speakers.
