About Julie

Dear parent/s:

I have worked in the field of education for well over five years. I began my career as a substitute teacher during my undergraduate career, then worked as a Graduate Assistant in Southeastern Louisiana University's Library during my graduate career. Once I obtained my teaching certificate and Master of Arts degree, I began my teaching career.

During my teaching career, I have taught grades 3, 6, 7.5 (remedial program), and 8-12 in English Language Arts. One year I was a remedial teacher in the 7.5 program, and my first year of teaching, I worked as a resource English teacher.

I feel confident that I can help your child accomplish academic goals. I love learning and hope to foster that same love of learning in your child!

I look forward to speaking with you in the future! Have a great day!

Sincerely,

Julie

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.

ADD/ADHD

My first year of teaching, I taught SPED classes 10-12 (English II, English III, and Business English) and the majority of my students were specific learning disability, although I did have one student with Asperger's. I created IEPs for these students and made sure to always utilize their accommodations consistently and efficiently. Since then, I have tutored and worked with students that have a broad range of learning disabilities, including ADD/ADHD.

Elementary (K-6th)

I regularly tutor students in grades K-6th at a local learning center and have also worked for a franchise teaching students at this age level. Additionally, I currently tutor for the school district in both math and English language arts tutoring grades 4 and 5. I feel confident that my use of manipulatives in math and strength in phonetics and language (B.A. in English) will allow me to tutor children at this grade level. I have taken my PLT teacher certification in this grade level also and passed scoring the top 15% of all test-takers in the United States.

English

I have a Bachelor of Arts degree in English. I have taught British Literature, Early American Literature, Business English, and Contemporary Fiction in grades 9-12. I also have experience tutoring students in English Language Arts for both the ACT and SAT. I have passed the Praxis Writing and Reading portions.

Phonics

I have worked with very young students both in tutoring situations and at Huntington Learning Center to increase phonetic awareness and recognition of sight words. I regularly work with children on the skill building and sound recognition associated with phonics through sound and picture associations. Kids at this young age seem to retain the information in a much more meaningful way when they have a picture and sound together.

Praxis

I have taken all of the Praxis Practice exams, including writing, reading, & basic math, as well as the PLT in both secondary and elementary education and passed. I received a National Recognition certificate on both PLTs for scoring the top 15% of all United States test-takers. I feel very confident that I am able to assist a student in preparing for this test.

Reading

I currently tutor a girl in 2nd grade. The student is going through academic testing at this time for a learning disability. Her scores have improved throughout the time we have worked together. I use questioning strategies and read-alouds to build her competency and confidence in reading.

Study Skills

I have worked with students of various ages to increase comprehension and achieve better study skills and habits. My experience both in the classroom and at learning centers has proven my ability to assist students in order to accomplish specific learning goals. I have worked with many special education students who have a weaknesses in organizational skills. Organization plays a key role in assisting students in shoring up their study habits--having information organized provides for more effective studying habits.

Great Tutor — I should begin by saying I have a very difficult child. My daughter has Asperger's Disorder and Oppositional Defiance. She can be very hard to manage. Julie has been with us for about three weeks now. She has done an AMAZING job with our daughter. She quickly earned Kate's trust and was quick to pick up on ques to redirect and reinforce her during lessons. The weeks leading up to Julie starting ...
