For the past 5 years, I have helped students excel in their math courses and achieve higher scores than they had previously thought possible on the SAT, ACT and GRE. I see test prep as an opportunity for intellectual growth, and, as a teacher, I see my work as fundamentally about empowering my students.

In addition to tutoring through Wyzant's platform, I work for one of the most rigorous companies in Manhattan. Through this company, I have received 120 hrs of training in methodology for standardized test preparation and went through a two-year mentorship program. Since then, I have written test prep materials for other tutors and taught SAT classes at private high schools such as Chapin and Saint Ann's.

What you can expect:

As a math tutor, I am patient and thorough, skilled at breaking down the basics and building complexity at an appropriate rate for each student. I believe that math courses should have a narrative arc and always emphasize the big picture in addition to the details. My favorite part of math tutoring is seeing my students develop confidence in their problem-solving ability and become excited by new concepts.

When it comes to standardized test prep, you can expect a process-oriented and data-driven tutor. For every one of my students, I make a spreadsheet to organize assignments, produce detailed written and graphical analyses of practice test results, and send weekly recaps of sessions to students and parents. I believe that communication is key to effective test prep and develop strong relationships with my students and their families. Working with me means having someone who is relentlessly on your team, who believes that you or your child can score higher than previously thought possible and will do whatever it takes to make that outcome a reality.

Many tutors simply go over practice test mistakes with students. I find this approach to be lazy and ineffectual, only capable of improving scores by maybe 10 percentile points. To achieve those life-changing score increases that enable students to get into highly selective universities, you need a tutor who deeply understands the psychology of test-taking and can reshape a student’s entire approach to standardized tests. This is the type of test prep I have been trained in and am excited to show you.

Recent score results:

I helped an undergrad at Dartmouth take her GRE score from a 316 to a 327. One of my New York juniors who had a PSAT score of 1250 just received a 1530 on the December SAT. Another high school student improved her ACT score by 8 points from a 22 to a 30.

A bit more about me:

With two mathematicians for parents, I learned to embrace numbers and critical thinking at a young age. I grew up enjoying math games and logic puzzles and bring this excitement and energy to my work as a teacher. I started tutoring Calculus when I was 16 years old and have since then taught a wide variety of subjects to students of all ages and backgrounds. Because I have worked with college students, high school students, and middle school students, I have developed teaching strategies to address knowledge gaps at a range of levels.

I earned my Bachelor's Degree at Harvard University and have extensive experience tutoring all high school math subjects and preparing students for many different standardized tests, including the GRE and GMAT. I can also tutor Chemistry and Physics and have assisted students in the development of articulate and enticing college application essays. More recently, I have helped younger students get ready for the ISEE, SSAT, and SHSAT exams and the Hunter admissions test.

GRE,

The GRE is my favorite test to tutor! I love helping adults reach their academic and/or career goals by doing well on the GRE. Preparing students for the test involves extensive vocabulary review, advanced reading comprehension exercises, and lessons in creative problem solving. I also emphasize process: skipping and coming back, using scrap paper effectively, etc. When I took the test, I received scores of 168 on the verbal and 170 on the math.

I believe statistics is one of the most important subjects for every student and working professional to learn at some point.

I then went on to study statistics for a year at Harvard and have since tutored it to both high school and college students in New York and Boston.

I first tutored calculus when I was 16 years old and enrolled in a course at the local university. While a student at Harvard, I completed their calculus sequence and tutored other undergrads. Since moving to New York I have taught the subject to college students at NYU and CUNY and to many high school students. I love helping people understand the fundamental concepts and techniques, which, when taught effectively, can alter your understanding of the world!

Amazing Teacher!

Julie really cares and helps walk you through plenty of problems. She is intelligent, patient, and adapts to how you think to help you effectively. Couldn’t pass Calc without her!

Jessica, 5 lessons with Julie

Julie is ridiculously effective and incredibly smart

She is someone you definitely want on your team. She knows the material deeply and is able to teach it very well, in addition to diagnosing and understand where you're at. She also helps build up your confidence and pulls out what you already know vs. what you need to know. So grateful to have her in my life.

A tutor with a plan

Julie is very patient and easy to converse with. Right away I knew she had my best interest by the way she started assessing my problem solving abilities. She mentioned her approach and how we will meet my goal by planning and setting a schedule. I am excited to continue working with her.
