Julie has been working with my daughter for 2 hours a week. She is doing a great job in helping my daughter improve her English and Reading scores on the ACT. Julie is very patient and positive. She explains concepts and strategies that will help now and into the future.
Thank you so much for the nice review, Leonarda. It is a pleasure to work with such a smart, dedicated, and positive student as your daughter!
My 11 year old daughter needed help organizing her thoughts and her work for a research paper. I home school my 10 year old daughter, and I was just too overwhelmed to do another paper. Julie has a very calm presence which is perfect my my very intelligent, yet very hyper, daughter. My daughter enjoys working with Julie very much and asks me when Ms. Julie is coming over! And just as important, my daughter is organizing her work on her own and not complaining!
Mrs. Julie is a great tutor who knows her subject well. A tremendous resource. A great person to have. Helped guide my child's writing style and is very dependable and always willing to dedicate however much time was necessary. Would not hesitated to call on her for my daughter's next writing project. My daughter really enjoyed working with her.
Thank you so much for the beautiful review! I enjoyed working with your daughter on her interesting projects, but I especially appreciated her skill and dedication as a writer...not to mention that lovely smile and positive attitude!
My daughter had a tutoring with Ms. Julie this evening. I was anxious at the beginning because I know my daughter takes a lot of encouragement and digging in order for her to get engaged in talking to somebody like a tutor. I felt comfortable that Ms. Julie was very patient. She was stimulating and got my daughter talking and engaged with what they wanted to accomplish. She encourages new words and vocabularies that my daughter can use.
Thank you so much for the positive feedback. It was so kind of you to take the time to evaluate our session. It is a joy to work with your daughter!
Julie was always patient and easy to work with. She always offered her opinion and didn't mind if you wanted to keep your work the way you did it as long as it was correct. She was always on time and easy to reach by email and phone. I would definitely use her again!
Our first lesson with Julie was a pleasure. She was very adept at engaging a reluctant and distracted 7 year old boy. Julie intermixed the lesson with fun and facts, and we all learned a lot. We're looking forward to our next lesson.
Thank you, Amanda, for the kind review. Ironically, after our session, I remarked to my family that it had been a long time since I had enjoyed a lesson so much and raved about Pierce's ability to pronounce French words so well! It was a pleasure for me, also.
My son was having a hard time in 9th grade English so I decided that we should get him a tutor to help. I Googled English tutors and WyzAnt Tutoring was the first one I saw. I checked it out and found Ms. Julie.
I sent her a email and she answered me back pretty quickly. She has tutored my son several times since then. My son has ADHD and she has been very patient with him even when he can't sit still. She makes sure he understands everything that they are working on and he feels very confident on his papers when they are done. He uses what Ms. Julie has taught him on his other papers that he works on with out her. Ms. Julie has done a wonderful job in helping our son with his English class.
Thank you so much for your kind words. I love working with him because he is sharp and creative. He has also become very proactive in his work!
Mrs. Julie is a wonderful teacher and person, my daughter is very happy with her help and knowledge. You can contact her anytime by e mail or phone and she answers right away. My daughter sends documents to review and she helps with the explanation and correction. She is a blessing for my daughter to have it as a tutor.
Right now it has been a month since Mrs. Julie is helping my daughter. She is more confident at school, she improved her grades very much and her writing and spelling are much better. Besides be an excellent teacher, she is a good motivating person, talks to the student and show them the best way to succeed at school and we appreciate that very much.
My daughter is very excited because she got an excellent mark in her English Class this month, Mrs. Julie is helping her any time, when she doesn't meet her in person my daughter contacts her on line, she reviews her essay and helps her to correct her writing and grammar and explains the reason of the corrections. Wonderful teacher!
Thank you for the wonderful review! It is such a pleasure to work with such a motivated and talented student!
Julie is very friendly and easy to talk to. She made my 8 yr old daughter feel very comfortable and at ease. Her qualifications and experience are a bonus to her sweet and kind disposition. We highly recommend her to anyone!
How kind of you to write such a wonderful review, Jen! I, too, found it pleasant and rewarding working with you and your daughter!
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.
I have assisted numerous students with college entrance essays, and they have gained admission. I have also helped students prepare for SAT and ACT tests on the Verbal section. I have also taught writing on the high school level for thirty plus years. I have even taught writing on the junior college level. I am also an expert proofreader and editor, with superior vocabulary and grammar skills.
I am a linguist as well as an English major. I have a strong background in both linguistics and phonetics. I use an approach to reading that employs both phonetics and sight words. I consider it important for students to be able to sound out words using phonetics as well as recognize common words.
Although my undergraduate major was English and French, I earned 24 hours in sociology, one of my favorite subjects. My master's degree was in Interdisciplinary Studies, and my three fields were English, Sociology, and Psychology. When I worked on my thesis, which was to show the sociological and psychological ramifications of code-switching, I used my sociology background to develop survey questions and then analyze and apply statistics to my results. After that I had to apply sociological principles to determine if my study was valid and reliable. I have also tutored students working on sociology papers using APA. I have frequently helped students develop a research question and then develop the question into an hypothesis or thesis. I have then helped them use relevant research materials to organize a paper, after which I have aided them in editing and revising the essay and citing their sources, using APA style.
While in North East ISD, I taught a study skills class for sophomores. I have helped numerous students to develop a system that works for them and still achieves results. I suggest they tackle more difficult subjects first and save the ones they enjoy most for last. In addition, I encourage them to use strategies such as reading over the material several times before using mnemonics and other such techniques, stressing learning the material rather than just trying to memorize for a particular task. Those who have taken my advice have been quite successful.
I taught secondary English for thirty-three years. My students were always successful on the TAKS test, and I provided extra tutoring for the test for many hours each year. I taught TAKS writing and and objective skills each year that I taught.
