Bio

I have a PhD and lots of experience teaching English. I have taught literature and writing to students from 1st grade through college. I like to make learning fun, and my method of teaching writing is particularly effective. I help students with their essays for lots of classes from middle school through grad school but especially English, AP History, AP Art History, Humanities, and Philosophy. I also find helping students improve their SAT and ACT scores and write winning college...

I have a PhD and lots of experience teaching English. I have taught literature and writing to students from 1st grade through college. I like to make learning fun, and my method of teaching writing is particularly effective. I help students with their essays for lots of classes from middle school through grad school but especially English, AP History, AP Art History, Humanities, and Philosophy. I also find helping students improve their SAT and ACT scores and write winning college entrance essays very rewarding. The materials I use for improving reading, vocabulary, and grammar skills work quickly to improve scores. I have some great success stories. Let me know if you'd like to see my references. And while I'm not a native speaker of French, I love the language and culture and am experienced and successful at teaching introductory French in ways that make it fun for young or old. I also enjoy teaching introductory Spanish. I have several Spanish students currently that can tell you how I have helped them to succeed in their high school Spanish courses. Let me know if I can help!

Great Tutor!

Julie was an excellent mentor, and she helped my daughter remember a lot of words in the first class. It was really a surprise.My daughter is very keen to have more time with Julie to get her grades up.

Katie, 3 lessons with Julie

Easy going, very helpful!

Julie helped my first year college student with an otherwise overwhelming research paper. Julie is laid back in her approach, yet highly competent. She assisted my daughter in organizing her thoughts, resulting in improved structure, grammar and overall content. We will definitely use her again!

Maureen, 1 lesson with Julie

Patient and well-prepared

Julie's really patient and thorough in explaining how to get to correct answers. She also takes the time to get to know her students to target lessons to their needs.

Creative and Engaging Tutor

Evan had an immediate rapport with Julie. His grades have improved since he has started working with her and he looks forwards to his tutoring sessions. We are grateful for Julie and will continue to have her work with Evan in the future.

English PhD perfect for college students

Julie helped my college freshman compose, edit, and clean her final paper for freshman Honors English. With just 5 short, clear, very productive lessons during finals week, student's work improved so much her scholarship threatening B was boosted to a scholarship secure A. Thank you so much, Julie.

Debra, 5 lessons with Julie

Great first lesson

My 7th grade son had a great first lesson with Julie. This was our first time with Wyzant and I was a little skeptical. Julie spoke with me and addressed my concerns prior to the lesson. She was well prepared, knowledgeable and engaging with my son. He loved the lesson and is looking forward to the next one.

Haley, 24 lessons with Julie

Great Experience

English is not my son's favorite subject. However, his feedback regarding lessons with Julie has been excellent. He enjoys the time he spends with her and he feels like he is really making progress. Thanks Julie!

Extremely Helpful & Knowledgeable

This first lesson with Julie was just what my son needed to get him focused on improving his writing skills. He's looking forward to work with Julie on next session.

Really helped us, great approach with students and parents

Julie was a huge help for my son! After starting and restarting Spanish classes a couple times. he was struggling to complete the class with a new curriculum. Much of what he learned didn't apply to the final curriculum in what we wanted to be the final class. Julie did a great job of brining his Spanish up to speed based on the class requirements. Her approach is collaborative with parents and students with the right amount of pushing to have the student to the work and try and try again. I definitely recommend Julie for Spanish and for any other subject she says she can tutor.
