About Julia


Bio

As a first-year M.A. student at the New School for Social Research, I'm familiar with student life and the pressures it entails. However, I am also well acquainted with the satisfaction of learning new skills and gaining new insights. As a tutor, my goal is to help students enjoy learning and develop the critical thinking and problem-solving skills that they will need to learn independently.

As a first-year M.A. student at the New School for Social Research, I'm familiar with student life and the pressures it entails. However, I am also well acquainted with the satisfaction of learning new skills and gaining new insights. As a tutor, my goal is to help students enjoy learning and develop the critical thinking and problem-solving skills that they will need to learn independently.

While I was an undergraduate at Wofford College, I volunteered as a math and spelling tutor for first-graders. I also have experience tutoring science at the elementary level and writing at the college level.

I work with students to set concrete personal goals and make a plan to achieve those goals. If we're working on a specific class, I'll use your class assignments in tutoring sessions in order to ensure that tutoring sessions fit into the your curriculum, but will also provide supplemental assignments as needed to ensure that you get enough practice developing each skill. If you're not in a class and just want to practice your English, get feedback on your creative writing, or practice another subject, we will tailor the curriculum to meet your needs.

I am generally available for tutoring sessions between 8:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. and also have some night time availability on occasion--just message me and we will find a time that accommodates you! My base rate is $35/hour and I offer discounts for regular students.

If you have any questions or would like to talk about booking a session, please don't hesitate to message me!

ESL/ESOL

Raised by an English teacher mom, I have been brought up with high standards when it comes to verbal and written expression. That being said, I have also been a student of other languages and understand the struggle that comes with learning a new language. I have taught English as a second language to elementary through high school students in Portuguese-speaking Mozambique on a volunteer basis, and I am committed to helping both native-speaking and ESOL students express themselves more precisely and fluently.

Literature,

Literature

My passion for literature comes from a love of reading and storytelling. During all four years of high school, I was involved in a theater group that performed Shakespeare's work exclusively, and I have also studied early English literature in college. Whether you need help navigating the early modern English of Shakespeare, you want to know how to break poems into their component parts, or you just need help learning to read, I would be happy to share my love of literature with you.

In college, I majored in two writing-intensive subjects: Psychology and Intercultural Studies. I have experience with technical, analytical, and creative writing and have worked as a peer tutor helping other students edit essays for grammar and content.

History

Sociology

Sociology

I have taken three sociology courses during my undergraduate career: Social Research, Poverty Analysis for Socioeconomic Development, and Social Psychology. I also took a Social Psychology course in the Psychology department; the approach to the subject differed by department, but much of the subject matter overlapped. As an Intercultural Studies (ICS) major, my sociology courses were a major part of how I approached and understood cross-cultural research.
