About Julie

Hello!

My name is Julie, and I am a licensed elementary school teacher in Pennsylvania. I am a graduate student at Cabrini College in Radnor, and will graduate with my Masters in Education in May 2015. This summer I will continue my education as I begin a Reading Specialist certification program at Cabrini. I recently completed my student teaching placement with honors in a 2nd grade classroom in the Phoenixville Area School District.

I have extensive experience working with struggling learners and students with various learning differences. I am a passionate, energetic, and hard working educator dedicated to helping children meet their academic goals. I am creative in my instruction, and will work with patience to meet the needs of the child.

I believe that a trusting relationship between teacher and student is necessary for the academic strides to take place. In addition, I believe the relationship between educator and parent(s) plays an important role in the success of the child. As with any relationship, communication is essential. I will teach you, the parent, strategies to help your child.

Although I am elementary certified, I am qualified to teach students from the preschool to the high school age in the following subject areas:

-Phonics
-Reading Strategies (Accuracy, Fluency, and Expanding Vocabulary)
-Reading & Listening Comprehension
-Grammar
-Writing and Organizational Strategies (Narratives, Expository Pieces, Term Papers, Persuasion/Opinion Pieces, Book Reports, Letters, Poems, etc)
-Handwriting Improvement
-Organizational Skills/Strategies
-Test taking skills and strategies
-Public Speaking and speech writing
-Social Studies, US History, Government

Prior to attending graduate school, I received my Bachelors from Muhlenberg College in American Studies in 2008. Upon graduating from Muhlenberg, I worked in Wayne for a large corporate company for four years in sales. I was a part of a large corporate layoff in 2012, and decided to fulfill my dreams of becoming a teacher. From 2012 until August of this year, I worked as a nanny and tutor full time while attending graduate school in the evenings.

I have FBI clearances, PA clearances, and all child abuse clearances available.
I am certified in CPR for infants, children, and adults. I have a valid PA driver’s license and my own car, and am a non- smoker. I am allergic to cats, and also require a smoke free environment.

If you think that I may be a good fit to help your son or daughter, please message me. We can set up a time to speak on the phone. Thank you for your consideration, and I wish you the best of luck in helping you child!

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Aspergers

I have a Special Education Teachers License, and have taken multiple graduate courses on Asperger's and Autism. I taught for a year in an Autistic Support classroom which had multiple students with Asperger's. In addition, I coached a running club with students with Asperger's and Autism.

Autism

I am a certified Special Education teacher in the state of Pennsylvania, and I have a Master's in Education. I spent years studying Autism in my graduate classes. I also have years of teaching experience working in students with Autism. I use Applied Behavioral Analysis Therapy in my tutoring, and Positive Behavior Support.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am a certified elementary school teacher in Pennsylvania. I have my undergraduate degree from Muhlenberg College. During college, I managed an after school reading program at a local community center for elementary school students. I am in a Master's program at Cabrini College, and will graduate in May with my Master of Education. I am currently substitute teaching in the Phoenixville Area School District.

English

I am a certified Elementary school teacher in the state of Pennsylvania. I have taken multiple graduate courses in teaching students Reading, Language Arts, Writing, and Phonics. I recently completed my student teaching with honors and served as a Tutor for after school reading club. I have a passion for literacy, and will begin my Reading Specialist certification this Summer.

Phonics

I am certified to teach Prek-4th grade in the state of Pennsylvania. I recently passed my Student Teaching with honors in a post baccalaureate program at Cabrini College. I studied, created lesson plans, taught, and assessed phonics during my placement this Fall. Under my instruction, student's grades improved 22% as a class average. As part of my masters program, I have taken and received an A in my phonics masters class. As a after school reading tutor I worked directly with reading specialists to instruct learners. I also worked one on one with a student this Fall during reading intervention. I tutored phonics for a year while attending graduate school and have been able to get two 5 year old at a first grade reading level. This is a result of implementing phonics instruction.

Reading

I am graduating in May from Cabrini College with my Master of Education. I was accepted to the a Reading Specialist program at Cabrini, and will begin the program in May. I am a certified elementary school teacher, and am currently substituting in the Phoenixville area school district. I have extensive experience with reading, and I have help run an after school reading program for elementary school students. I also like to incorporate diagnostics into tutoring prior to applying strategies. I also like to model strategies and slowly ask students to use the learned strategy on their own. Reading is a lot to do with phonics, and I have extensive experience in teaching and tutoring phonetic skills and promoting phonetic awareness. Reading has a lot to do with confidence, I make it my goal to build self confidence in each child I help. I am also a big believer in finding a right fit book for a child.
