About Julie

Welcome! As an accepted medical student, I possess a unique passion for learning that I love to use in working with my students. Whenever possible, I implement a conceptual approach during my sessions, emphasizing the need to understand the whole picture instead of just memorizing facts. I believe that a valuable tutor will enable her students to truly understand the material and thus become more self-sufficient.

As a collegiate writing consultant and tutor for three years, I offer solid tutoring experience. I worked especially well with international and ESL students and had several students who enjoyed my tutoring so much that they would target my hours in the Writing Center. The teaching principles I learned and developed during my time as a writing tutor easily transition to my area of expertise—science. I also spent some time as a peer mentor for general biology students.

My passion for the natural sciences has been cultivated over three years of intense undergraduate coursework in a topnotch science program. My premed degree is equivalent to a biology major with a chemistry minor, and I also took a year of physics. As I am beginning medical school this summer, I recently took the MCAT (medical college admissions test) and scored in the top 8% of the nation.

I offer both in-person ($50/hr) and online ($40/hr) sessions, as well as discounted rates for lesson packages. I would love to hear from you, so please do not hesitate to contact me with questions. I look forward to helping you or your student excel!

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.

Anatomy

My BS in Premed included a year of anatomy with a cadaver-based laboratory.

Biology

My bachelor's in premed was essentially comprised of a biology major. I completed courses ranging from general biology to upper-level cell and molecular biology to upper-level genetics to biodiversity. I also spent some time as a peer mentor for general biology students.

Chemistry

My premed degree essentially included a chemistry minor, including one year each of general chemistry, organic chemistry, and biochemistry.

Proofreading

Three years as a collegiate writing tutor/consultant have afforded me plenty of proofreading experience on both the undergraduate and graduate levels, a fair amount of which consisted of working with international/ESL students.

Psychology

I completed a general psychology course and brushed up on my psychology knowledge while studying for the MCAT.

Writing

I spent three years as a collegiate writing consultant/tutor. I worked with both undergraduate and graduate students, many of whom were ESL.

Excellent tutor

Julie is an amazing tutor. My daughter loves her. She wasn't doing very well in her Biology class but now there is a steady improvement in her grades. She is excellent about communicating with me about my daughters progress during their sessions and if we message her she responds right away. I most definitely recommend Julie to my family and friends.
