About Julia

I am a 24 year old female. I just earned my BA in Literature and Writing. I have high functioning autism, and I have helped out in the special education classes in my area. All the instructors are all talking about they want me back, but for the meanwhile I was focusing on my education. I have also applied to work in the school district as well, but I am not currently certified. Once I finish graduate school I am hoping to help other people with disabilities pursue their goals. My major in graduate school once I start will be in a Masters in Adult Learning. I also have an Associates degree in Liberal Arts Sciences: Humanities, as well as an Early Childhood Education certificate.

I have helped out in educational settings before, but have not actually taught in the subject of English. I student taught children with autism in grades K-5. I also did a work study in my community college's daycare. I have volunteered in classes of teachers that used to be my own. I have volunteered to help out both middle and high school students as well. The grades I volunteered for in the special educational setting were for 8th-12th grade students. I volunteered less often for those grades though. I know I would make a good English tutor because I could teach others the strategies I used to graduate with my degree in Cultural studies: Literature and Writing. I could teach students about FANBOYS, finding keywords, using the dictionary, and finding helpful websites for resources.

I have the patience and experience of working with younger students on the spectrum. I have high functioning autism myself, and I could teach others the strategies I have learned in the subject of English. One accomplishment that I am proud of was when I helped one of my students advance their reading skills. He was only in 2nd grade, he knew how to read, but I pushed him to memorize the words and ask questions. To this day he is an accomplished reader. Something broke my student out of a shell when I helped him advance his reading skills.

Students and parents are highly encouraged to contact me. My most preferred method for tutoring is video chat, emails and phone conversations, but I am willing to travel if you live nearby.
