My name is Julie and I love chemistry. My goal is to help you through this challenging subject. You may even find that chemistry is in your future after having success in your current course. As a high school teacher with over 20 years of experience I have worked with students of every skill level, recognize areas more challenging to students, and have had success helping young people become chemistry literate.

Chemistry tutoring help is possible for: daily homework assignments, review of topics that are challenging to you, developing the math skills needed for chemistry, final exam preparation, and SAT II and AP Chemistry test preparation. I will tailor the tutoring sessions to your specific needs. This will include helping you get more out of your daily chemistry classes.

Tutoring help can be one-on-one or in small groups. I will travel to your location or we can use Skype or the WyzAnt online tools if travel is more difficult. Let me know how I can help.

I have been a high school teacher for chemistry and physics for the past 18 years. This experience and observations of the successes and difficulties of my students has prepared me to help young people with this challenging subject. With a little help on the concepts, some work on note-taking, and individual attention, success is assured.

Study Skills

As a chemistry and physics teacher for 18 years, I have worked with students who have excelled and those who have struggled in their academics. I believe in the importance of adequate preparation, good note-taking, thorough material review, and the pursuit of answers to or clarification of topics that are incompletely understood. This is all a part of the development of good study skills. Performance in a class can improve and become more enjoyable once a young person knows how to better organize work and study.

Julie is a spectacular tutor

I am taking college chemistry and was really struggling. When I read Julies credentials I knew that she was the tutor I wanted, and I couldn't have been more right! Julie is warm and inviting, it can be a little scary and intimidating to meet a stranger online who is going to be teaching you, but Julie makes you feel comfortable right away. Also, she is so patient, she will work with me no matter how long it takes until I understand and i never feel belittled for not getting something right away. She knows exactly how to explain the concepts we go over, and has taught me things that my professor has not. Julie makes learning chemistry fun, she provides great analogies and context. If i am having a stressful day, and a hard time understanding chemistry, all that goes away after my lesson with Julie, and afterward I am actually excited to continue learning. I have only had a few lessons with Julie but I will be going back to her again and again. I am so grateful for the valuable one on one time with someone who is so knowledgeable!

Very patient

Great for my 10th grader who had been completely lost in her class until her session. Very patient and took time to reword and reteach when necessary.

Knowledgeable and Easy to Work With

Our first session was comfortable. Julie was easy to talk to and made it easier to understand concepts and talk about areas of Chemistry I am struggling with. I look forward to our next session.

Experienced, knowledgeable tutor

She helped my daughter in IB Chemistry to prepare for the test. She was very patient and helped her review gas laws. My daughter is looking forward to the next session.

Very Knowledgeable and Patient Tutor

Julie responded quickly to our request and was able to thoroughly help my son with his Chem homework. She also helped him prep for his quiz. She was extremely patient and explained things in a way that he understood.

5 Stars

My son said if he gets confused about chemistry again, you are the first person he’d reach out to! He told me to definitely give a 5 Stars Review. :) Thank You SO MUCH!!!

Knowledgeable, patient and effective

In a single session Julie helped my daughter understand the subject matter. She explains well and patiently and makes sure the student grasps the concept. Julie was available much longer than the planned one hour session until all the necessary material was covered. My daughter now feels so much more comfortable about the subject.

EXTREMELY THOROUGH!!!

With only an hour to review an exam that will be given in the AM, Julie was able to explain and instruct in such a way that our eldest is more confident than she had been prior to receiving Julie's help. I was not in the room during the lesson, but I could hear the instruction taking place and the patience in which Julie spoke, and our daughters attentive participation. Julie's manner of teaching kept our daughter engaged, despite her having an extremely long and tiring day!!!! I sincerely and highly recommend Julie. She is now our go-to Tutor for Chemistry.
