Hello, I'm Julie! I have a Bachelors of Business Administration in Management with a minor in International Business and enough hours for a second minor in history/social studies. College was an intense time for me and preparing for classes could be strenuous especially when I had little access to assistance with research, and writing preparation. Much of the time I wanted to do well but not having the effective communication skills to translate my knowledge into presentable formats for professors was rough and challenging with little real assistance. This frustration lead to my understanding that history and social studies is about the personal narrative, but one based in factual opinion and learning to accomplish this could be fun if I had the right guide and tools to do so. As a teacher/tutor I have fulfilled this goal to bring fun but informative lessons and tools for self discovery and learning to motivate many of my students over the years I have taught.

With that in mind, I try to add my own unique outlook and resilience into solving problems regarding issues like note taking, test taking and writing into my lessons as a Social Studies teacher. With almost two decades of experience teaching in public schools in Texas, I have multiple ways that I use to build relationships with students from middle to high school and those starting college to build a strong foundation in all aspects of Social Studies education. I have taught everything from World Geography to US Government at the High School level and have taught Pre Ap classes as well as worked with Special Ed students in order to find the right balance of rigor and relevance for each individual student while maintaining curricular standards for my districts. I have years of after school tutoring that was required for the districts I worked in so I excel at small groups and one on one instruction. Many times the lessons I taught involved small group instruction and peer tutoring so my classrooms mirrored this educational philosophy frequently. In these small group settings we focused on writing for the content area as well as fact based learning and critical thinking. All of these things were standards driven and helped increase retention and therefore test scores and carrying knowledge forward. As I mentioned, cross curricular lessons in English and Science were reinforced daily and weekly in my classes.

I am versed in using technology to enrich student understanding and my lesson plans are differentiated for all learners and levels of technology understanding. I believe that hands on learning can be just as valuable as using the computer and therefore can be an asset to children in a personal setting as well as online. I want to be available in many ways to my students and their parents as I feel that parent enrichment can reinforce success in learning and that learning starts as a family value or activity.
You will always hear from me within a 48 hr time frame if I am chosen as your tutor and I will have progress updates and can interface as a certified teacher with any teacher of record for your child should you as the parent feel this is required or needed.

Feel free to contact me at any time to asking for more information or to schedule a lesson. I look forward to speaking with you.
