About Julie

I have had experience working with all types of students in all types of arenas, from elementary age to middle school to high school to college age to adults. I have been a tutor, teacher, counselor, academic advisor, fitness center owner/operator, personal trainer and artist. I have a Masters degree in Education with an emphasis in Student Development.

I believe that learning requires a teacher that is a good listener, clear thinker, and a patient participant in the learning process with a student. I think it is important to understand who the student is, what their interests are, and how they like to spend their free time. This helps with understanding HOW and WHAT helps them learn, be motivated to learn and realize why it is important to learn, as it affects the course of the rest of your life. If a student can break through certain learning barriers with the help of a skilled teacher and listener, they can gain confidence and recognize that they have special gifts and skills waiting to be expressed. With this in mind, they are more likely to succeed in all areas of their life.

Learning entails more than just information....it is a journey of SELF.
