About Julian


Bio

I am new to Portland, just moved from the SF Bay Area! I am looking forward to getting to know the city. So far I like it, though there is a lot of rain to deal with!

I've tutored for three years in the San Jose area, mostly in math. I've taught kids from 5th grade up through 12th and some college students as well, covering all subjects up through calculus. (I don't do statistics though.) I have worked independently and for two years at a private middle school as an after-school tutor (both...

I am new to Portland, just moved from the SF Bay Area! I am looking forward to getting to know the city. So far I like it, though there is a lot of rain to deal with!

I've tutored for three years in the San Jose area, mostly in math. I've taught kids from 5th grade up through 12th and some college students as well, covering all subjects up through calculus. (I don't do statistics though.) I have worked independently and for two years at a private middle school as an after-school tutor (both math and English).

Each student has their own needs. I can adjust my pace to fit you. Often students are really having trouble with the previous years' material: an Algebra 2 student is having difficulty with Algebra 1, or a calculus student doesn't know trigonometry. If so, I will help bring you up to speed.

In college I majored in music, though I also took math including real analysis, differential equations, and honors calculus. I play piano and hold a bachelor's in music from San Jose State University. I have played, listened to, read and written about music from Beethoven to Rachmaninoff. I can teach piano and music theory, including four-part harmony, species counterpoint, and modern techniques.

Let me know if you'd like to try a lesson! I'm open to teach wherever is comfortable for you: your home, or a library or coffee shop.

Composition (Music)

Composition (Music)

I have a B.M. (bachelor of music) degree from San Jose State University. I took the full two years' run of music theory plus two higher-level semesters: one on Form and Analysis, and one on Counterpoint (where you write simple contrapuntal compositions). I also have written several times for the Beethoven Journal, published at SJSU.

Homeschool

Algebra 1,

Algebra 1

I tutored pre algebra and algebra for two years at a private middle school in Santa Clara, CA. I've also tutored high school math through Wyzant. Many kids (and adults!) can be intimidated by algebra, but if you take it step by step and you're clear on the concepts, you can manage it.
Algebra 2,

Algebra 2

I have tutored algebra II for over two years, both with Wyzant and through a private agency in the San Jose area. This class is a big step up from algebra 1, and it often includes a student's first real exposure to trigonometry. If the student had any difficulty with algebra 1, ironing out those problems will be a top priority. Thankfully, this course is often very similar to precalculus, so if you learn the material well you won't have as much work to do if you continue to precalc.
Calculus,

Calculus

I have tutored high school (both AB & BC) and college calculus for two years. I've also graded practice AP tests for a private agency, so I know what the test looks like. The AB course is a solid introduction to calculus, including limits, derivatives, and integrals. The BC course is substantially harder, covering all the AB material plus harder methods of integration, series and Taylor series, and a few smaller things. It takes some real work, but it is worth it! Calculus is many people's first taste of "real" math. Note, I do not teach multivariable calculus.
Precalculus,

Precalculus

Precalculus...all those different functions and their graphs! This class encompasses a lot of different topics. As any math teacher can tell you, half of calculus class is really algebra/trig skills. If you get solid on these skills now, it will save you a lot of trouble down the road. I have taught precalculus (and SAT Math Level 2) for over two years, both through Wyzant and through a private agency in the San Jose area.
SAT Math

SAT Math

I have taught many students math for SAT and SAT II, including the new SAT. I helped design the math curriculum for a private tutoring agency for the new SAT math section.

Great Tutor

Julian tutored me and I really liked the way he would explain the material to me. He is easy to follow when he's explaining and has an amazing attitude.

Luis, 20 lessons with Julian

Very good teacher!

Julian was able to step in right in the middle of my daughter’s hard advanced algebra class and seamlessly help her understand what she needed to know to succeed. She feels much more confident about not only passing her class, but actually getting a good grade. Julian is awesome!

Sarah, 6 lessons with Julian

Great

Julian has helped my daughter understand the content of her math class. He has been able to clarify what her instructor has been teaching as well as reviewed some of the basic concepts/properties of logs. He showed her some small tips that may help her work out equations faster.

Candice, 5 lessons with Julian

Helpful math tutor

He really knows the subject and was quickly able to help me with a complicated problem that I needed help with. He was very patient as I am just learning how to work on Wyzant and he was very patient with everything.

Eva, 1 lesson with Julian

Knowledgeable & patient

Julian covered derivatives and anti-derivatives, optimization problems, absolute max/min & helped me through any problems I came across on my practice exam. He gave me tips on what I should be knowledgeable on for the rest of the calculus sequence and he was able to meet with me on short notice. Highly recommend!

Micah, 1 lesson with Julian

Patient and designed review

Works very well with my son helped with homework during school year. He is now reviewing for Algebra 1 for high school. Julian has quiet and patient energy which works very well for us.

Tammy, 37 lessons with Julian

Good patient tutor

From what my son told me, Julian helped him connect the dots... which was / is very important. He is now focusing on reviewing material that were gaps for him and hope to reconnect later.

N, 1 lesson with Julian

Knowledgeable and patient

Julian was very patient AP Calculus tutor for our daughter. He definitely helped our daughter understand this challenging math. We intend to continue sessions in the new year.

Stephen, 9 lessons with Julian

Knows AP Calculus AB very well

Julian's resume did not highlight AP Calculus much be he knows the subject very well without using any reference material. Julian is a little soft spoken but he teaches the big picture and problem approach as well as how to solve any homework problem while making my son feel very comfortable.
