I am an experienced Massachusetts Public High School teacher with a MAT from Tufts and a Law Degree from Boston University School of Law. I have worked with all levels of high school students, including Honors and moderate special needs. I believe that building a student's confidence is a priority, and I have been particularly successful with students diagnosed with ADD/ADHD. My specialties include Executive Function, writing, study skills and organization, History, Law, Drama, Comedy, and analytical thinking.
As much as I loved being in a classroom, the most fulfilling and enjoyable teaching opportunities for me were after school, meeting one-on-one or with small groups of students to concentrate on their Executive Function, Study Skills and academic development.

Julianne is a very excellent writing tutor. To her great credit, she is friendly, encouraging and professional at all times. She sees the student as a whole person and adapts to the individual. I recommend her highly.
Julianne has been a wonderful tutor to my 15-year-old daughter. She has taken the time to truly get to know her and her unique learning challenges. Because of Julianne's thoroughness she has been able to provide my daughter with studying tools and strategies that greatly complement her learning style.
Julianne is a warm and caring person whose fun but matter-of-fact style helps diffuse any negative feelings my daughter may have about herself and her school work. I have seen an AMAZING increase in my daughter's confidence (and grades) over the past 6 months thanks to Julianne's guidance.
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.
I am currently tutoring in organization, study skills, and managing ADD in the greater Boston area. I have classroom experience with students with ADD in MA high schools, and I also did a lot of after-school tutoring and helped with the Homework Club.
I have a JD from Boston University School of Law.
I participated in Forensics in high school and have mock trail experience from law school. I have also taught law and mock trial.
I am an experienced Massachusetts high school history and law teacher, grades 9 -12.
I have taught organization/study skills to new 9th graders, laying the groundwork for strategies in note taking, homework organization, time management, test preparation, and memorization/presentation skills. I devoted considerable amount of time working on individual study and concept skills with SPED students after school, particularly with reference to multiple-choice test taking strategies and essay writing protocols for persuasive essays.
My largest study/writing skills project while a classroom teacher was for 11th and 12th graders in a heterogeneous law class. Over a three month period and with a variety of research and study milestones, i taught students note-taking skills, source evaluation skills, research methods, how to read a legal case and evaluate court decisions and how to manage long term projects with specific support materials.
In the last 2 years, I have been individually tutoring students (in the Boston metro area) with attention issues, emotional issues, motivation problems, and poor executive function skills. Among the skills I teach are: time management, organization of materials, homework strategies, including homework contracts and communication contracts with parents and teachers, test preparation and on-going writing skills. The most important skill I teach is how to work towards concept comprehension through clear and practiced protocols -gathering and distilling information for assessments.
I took theatre classes at the Brown University Theater Department, The American Academy of Dramatic Arts, and the Lee Strasberg Institute, and I am a member of two improv groups in NYC.
