I specialize in tutoring Spanish from introductory through college level. I have ten years of experience tutoring children (as young as preschool) and adults. I have taught both Spanish individual and group classes in a variety of locations throughout NY and CT. My native language is English, however I have lived and studied in Spain and Ecuador. I am passionate about all things Spanish (language, music, dance, food, culture).

My methods are successful and holistic, encompassing all learning styles, and cover the six components of literacy. As a successful Spanish tutor, my students grades improve one or two levels. My goal is to bring my skills and enthusiasm for Spanish language to my students and thereby improve and increase my students' ability to communicate effectively in Spanish. Contact me today to schedule your sessions.

Hebrew

Learning the Hebrew language can be very challenging, however with a good instructor, a bit of patience and lots of practice you can be on your way to reading, speaking, writing and understanding Hebrew. An entire new alphabet of consonants needs to be learned as well as a series of dots and dashes which represent the vowels. Keep in mind that Hebrew is written and read from right to left. The ability to read Hebrew is a gift that will bring you much pleasure and will also help to strengthen your ability to learn other foreign languages. I have 20 years experience teaching Hebrew with much success. Call me to schedule your lessons.

I graduated cum laude from WCSU, where I studied, bilingual education, Spanish, advanced grammar and foreign language acquisition. At home I speak Spanish with my family. Over the past 10 years I have successfully tutored Spanish to middle, high school and college students, as well as to adults who wish to improve their career opportunities. I am passionate about communicating in Spanish. My enthusiasm is contagious and my students have fun while learning to read, write and speak in Spanish. Besides the traditional listen and repeat exercises, I use dialogues, games, songs and videos when I teach. In addition, I have provided Spanish Immersion childcare for the past 5 years to families with children age newborn to age seven. I have lived and studied in Spain, and I recently returned from an extended winter trip to Ecuador, living and traveling with my husband and his Ecuadorian family.

High Level Of Commitment To Student

Julia has worked great with our son. She is timely, conscientious, and dedicated to her role as a tutor. She goes beyond the commitment required to work with our son, and spends time following up with us to ensure that we are aware of the lesson content and progress made. She has been a big help preparing our son for his next year of Spanish in school.

Kyle, 24 lessons with Julia

Great tutor!!!

Julia is truly an amazing person. She came to us in one day after we called her and she drove about sixty miles to get here. When she showed up she had the appropriate study materials with her. She is extremely professional and very knowledgeable on many subjects. She is also multilingual and very diversified. When she left, my daughter felt much more confident about taking her upcoming final exam. If you or your child need tutoring, Julia is the best.

Carl, 1 lesson with Julia

WOW!!

Julia is timely, positive and energetic. She is a real professional that clearly loves teaching. Her Bio as a Spanish tutor simply doesn't do her justice. She has been incredible for my 15 year old son. He has new found confidence in the language and looks forward to his sessions with her. We feel very lucky to have found her.

Lisa, 8 lessons with Julia
Tutor responded:

Thanks so much Lisa! I appreciate your taking time out of your busy schedule to write a recommendation for me. It has been my pleasure working with your son. Not only has he shown increased confidence in Spanish, he has also made tremendous progress in vocabulary, verb conjugations and general comprehension of Spanish grammar. Keep up the good work!

Great tutor, very reliable!

Julia tutored my daughter in spanish and she was excellent! She was very good at recognizing her strengths and weaknesses. Julia made sure my daughter had a strong understanding of the basics that she could then build from. I would recommend her to anyone struggling with spanish at any level. She is wonderful!

Julia has been tutoring my children for the past few months and we have been very pleased. She is very enthusiastic with my kids (ages 5 and 7) which keeps them interested in learning Spanish. They look forward to their meetings with Julia each week. I would highly recommend her.

Alicia, 13 lessons with Julia
Tutor responded:

Thank you Alicia. Your children are so sweet. I too, look forward to our sessions. They are like little sponges, quickly soaking up Spanish. The path toward discovering the world through a foreign language begins with FLES. How wonderful that you are providing them with this early opportunity. It truly is a gift with so many educational advantages!

Great tutor,

Julia always showed a great enthusiasm and great amount of passion for the Spanish culture, she really loves the Spanish language and the culture. I am so fortunate to have Julia as my Spanish tutor. I will recommend to any one this wonderful teacher, she is really great!
