Julie is very patient with Ethan and takes the time to evaluate where his writing skills at currently during our first lesson. He also feels comfortable working with her even though he dislikes writing. Overall a great first lesson!
Julie is the best. Very patient , understanding and knowledgeable.
Superb!!!! Down to earth. Inspired my son to think outside of the box on his paper. Her laid back attitude frees student to explore the possibilities. I would DEFINITELY reccommend her.
She was very helpful making sense of History and study habits to absorb and retain the information. I highly recommend her.
Julie was really understanding and helpful through out the session. She has a great knowledge as to what we expect. overall it was a great session and looking forward to work with her.
Julie works with my son to help him prepare for the ACT and AP English exam. His analytical skills have improved, and he is now more confident in his writing. Thanks, Julie!
Julie was extremely knowledgeable and very helpful. This was a college level sociology class requiring a persuasive speech. Julie emphasized the professors expectations and helped brainstorm ideas for the speech Excellent tutor and would definitely use again.
Went through art history research paper, I feel confident I'm going to be getting an A. Definitely going back to her.
I have had 2 sessions with Julie so far.One in person and one online. Both were great and met my expectations.She was prepared and knowledgeable with what I needed. Looking forward to more sessions as I have a long journey ahead of me. Also, she is always on time...lateness is a big no-no for me so I was also very pleased with that
Julie was a kind and patient tutor with our son, and even made some time to look at something for our daughter as well.
Julie--in a short period--has assessed my HS student's capabilities and created a learning plan for SAT writing mastery. She has done a terrific job in a short period identifying his gaps and devising a plan working with him to close these gaps.
She takes details into account and helps the student achieve his potential. I like her teaching style and willingness to address changes!!
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.
