About Julie

I am a NJ, and NY State certified teacher of TESOL (ESL), with experience teaching Reading, Writing, and Adult Literacy. I have taught all ages, and in many settings -- Elementary, Middle School, High School, Community College, in factories, and corporate environments, and as a private tutor. I create lessons based on student goals -- Reading Skill Development, and Reading Strategy development for struggling readers. I combine phonics instruction, word attack practice, comprehension strategies, vocabulary development and practice with reading/writing connections. I assist students with Study Skills, GED preparation, and Writing for school and work. For Second Language Learners (ESL) choose your focus -- Conversational skills, Pronunciation and Accent Reduction, TOEFL Preparation, or reading and writing. I create lessons with materials that are relevant, and interesting to each student - school assignments, pleasure reading, professional materials (work related), and will suggest supplementary materials.

I have taught GED prep through Local 1199 Training Fund, and as a private tutor.

I am available days and evenings, and willing to meet you in a quiet, convenient location.

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.

ESL/ESOL

I have an M.S. in Education, TESOL/Literacy. I am certified in TESOL in NJ and NY. I have taught ESL to students of all ages. I am skilled at making students at ease. I teach to student goals - conversation, school success, reading /writing for academic subjects and vocabulary development, or work related tasks.

Reading

I have an M.S. in Education, TESOL/Literacy. I have taught reading to ESL students, adults, and struggling readers. I teach strategies to become a more confident and independent reader, as well as practice with decoding and comprehension. Also experienced with visual and audio processing issues.

TOEFL

My method for assisting students preparing for TOEFL is to model and practice strategies for successful test taking. I assess your areas of strength and weakness, and focus study on areas that need improvement. The test is somewhat predictable, and you can succeed with confidence and preparation!
