About Julia

I have had a private nutrition consulting practice since 1980 for individuals, groups, and organizations - educational, healthcare, civic, military, business, and entertainment industries therefore much of my tutoring is experiential, hands-on learning, of a practical, applied nature.

In previous years I worked as a registered dietitian/nutritionist in hospitals and nursing homes in administrative, clinical and community capacities.

I have a B.S. in Human Nutrition and Foods and a Master's in Allied Health Education I took several advanced courses psychology at the graduate level) and the subject continues to be a pastime of mine and is studied through reading and audiotapes.

I have been a substitute teacher in Newark, Middlesex, and Dunellen boroughs for the past 10 years, grades K - 12, all subjects including special ed.

I have raised 3 college educated children as a single parent who are now young adults and successfully established career people with families of their own.

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have been a substitute teacher for 10 years in Newark vocational school, and Middlesex and Dunellen boroughs k -12. I have taught all grades but my teaching has been predominately elementary grades. I have a B.S. In Human Nutrition and Foods, School of Home Economics and an Ed.M. from Rutgers University Allied Health Dept. of Education.

A few of my tenets have been: to apply positive reinforcement to redirect negative behavior and foster enhanced learning; supply one-on-one attention to each student while maintaining overall focus on the entire group; conduct small group and individual classroom activities based on differentiated learning needs; support students in developing strategies for individual needs and classroom group dynamics.

In the absence of lesson plans or when time allowed I designed activities to encourage student participation i.e., the analysis of individual food diaries to teach students improved nutrition habits.

Nutrition

I have a B.S. in Human Nutrition and Foods from Douglass College/Rutgers and an Ed.M. in Allied Health Education from Rutgers University. I did a 3 year pre-planned experience traineeship program before obtaining my registered dietitian/nutritionist credential in 1990. To maintain my R.D.N. I must complete 75 hours of continuing education every 5 years which I am up to date on through May,2015.

I have had a nutrition private practice for individuals and groups since 1980 and have consulted for educational, health care, government, business, civic, and entertainment industries. I have full-time work experience in hospital and long term care facilities in administrative, clinical and community capacities.

As a substitute teacher, grades K - 12 I am known for changing the nutrition habits of youth through examination and discussion of individual food diaries. Modifications are then made to insure changes in dietary choices.
