Julia is a very pleasant, accommodating, methodical and amazing tutor. She works well with my son and takes her time explaining and making sure he understands properly. She has been tutoring our son for couple of months now and I have seen good progress. Julia is detail oriented and diligent in her efforts that our son is comprehending the material, helping him build the strong writing foundation. I highly recommend Julia.
