About Julie


Bio

I have been tutoring for thirteen years. Getting to know my students, discovering where they are in their learning, and helping them move toward and meet their goals are what motivate me. I have worked with students from kindergarten through high school, and even with adults. The areas in which I have tutored are English, Reading, ESL, and Spanish.. In the classroom I have taught junior and senior high school English and Spanish, adult ESL, and elementary Spanish. I have also given piano...

I have been tutoring for thirteen years. Getting to know my students, discovering where they are in their learning, and helping them move toward and meet their goals are what motivate me. I have worked with students from kindergarten through high school, and even with adults. The areas in which I have tutored are English, Reading, ESL, and Spanish.. In the classroom I have taught junior and senior high school English and Spanish, adult ESL, and elementary Spanish. I have also given piano lessons at the beginner and intermediate levels.

My bachelor's degree is in Secondary Education with an emphasis in Language Arts and Reading, and my current teaching credential is with the State of Texas. My Master's degree is in TEFL or TESOL (similar to ESL). I also graduated from a Spanish Language Institute in Costa Rica and lived extensively in Latin America. I am a native English speaker, but I am also fluent in both written and spoken Spanish. Although I don't have a formal degree in music, I studied piano, played for church, and have taught it for 10 years.

Please contact me if you are interested or have any questions. I look forward to hearing from you and hopefully, working with you or your child.
