About Julian

I am a graduate of Brown University, where I primarily studied American and East Asian history. Academics have always been a key source of passion in my life. I love to write. In high school, I tutored my peers in writing three days a week. I also gained experience working with children through my community service efforts at the St. Vincent School in Philadelphia, and at the Kensington Community Center.

I love the energy of kids. Whenever working with young students, I aim to make a positive contribution towards opening up and growing their minds. As a tutor, I strive to bring the same energy to my work that kids bring to life. More than anything, I endeavor to be clear, to be kind, and to listen. Thank you.

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.

Algebra 1

I spent the better part of last year tutoring six children in Algebra I. I have mastered all of the concepts. I can teach students how to enjoy working with math, and all of the practical skills they can improve by learning algebra.

American History

I earned my degree from Brown University in American History. I am confident teaching all periods of American History, along with the history of American influence in the global sphere.

LSAT

I taught for Kaplan for a year before leaving to attend Columbia Law. I know how to improve students' scores on the test, and I can also convey my insights on how to succeed in the first year of law school.

SAT Math

I have experience teaching numerous students how to excel on the math sections of the SAT. I helped one student raise her overall score by 300 points. I scored over 700 on the math section of the test.

SAT Reading

This is my strongest section of the test. I've taught more than 10 students how to improve their score. I scored a 760 on the reading section. Also, I can incorporate the reading strategies I learned as an LSAT prep teacher into teaching the reading sections of the SAT.
