About Julia

My name is Julia and I am a recent graduate of Colgate University. I graduated from Colgate Magna Cum Laude and with High Honors in Psychology. I had a 3.8 cumulative GPA. I received 3 awards my senior year, and was the only student on record to have received two awards from the psychology department. I was a member of both the psychology honor society and Colgate's senior honor society, Konosioni, which was comprised of only 26 seniors. At Colgate, I also worked in the Dean's Office, in two psychology labs, and as a peer mentor for first generation college students. Recreationally, I was a captain of the women's rugby team, a co-editor in chief of Colgate's satirical newspaper, and an orientation leader.

In addition to my aforementioned campus activities, I began tutoring the summer before senior year. During my senior year, I worked as a tutor in Psychology and Statistics. I tutored an Introduction to Psychology class for my entire senior year. Students in the introductory psychology class had high scores that were unprecedented when I was part of the tutoring staff. In the second half of the past year, I worked as a Psychological Statistics tutor. The class was essentially an introductory statistics class, although it had a focus on tests and programs (i.e. SPSS) that are relevant to Psychology. I also worked in several psychology labs and did a great deal of proofreading for professors. In addition, just finished studying for and taking the GRE, which has a vocabulary section mirroring that of the SAT, just at a higher level. I scored in the top 12th percent or above for both verbal sections. As such, I feel I would be a great tutor in SAT verbal. I tutored for over a year and feel as though I gained great teaching experience with a variety of students. While I am accustomed to tutoring college students, I have worked with younger students in a variety of other settings and feel as though my skills are transferrable to other age groups. I am used to creating presentations of material and practice multiple choice questions to help students better comprehend course material. I also have conducted many individualized sessions and enjoy teaching that way as well. I love tutoring and seeing the progression students have as we work together to master topics! I am very patient and dedicated to my students' success.

I am generally available on weekdays in the evenings. I am also available on Sunday afternoons and evenings. I can be available on Saturdays as long as we set up a session in advance. I charge $45 per hour for online sessions, and $65 per hour for sessions in person. Please reach out to me if you need any assistance in Psychology, Stats, or SAT verbal. I feel strongly that with the right focus, determination, and guidance, any student can succeed, which is what makes me most excited about tutoring. I hope you'll contact me to learn more about me as a tutor and to schedule an appointment!
