About Julia

I am prepared to work with students in grades K-6 to help them with English or writing. I hold a BA and a Master's acquired with distinction in communications and journalism. I can help them master reading, writing and comprehension. I hold three honor keys - Junior National Honor Society, National Honor Society and a Phi Beta Kappa equivalent in journalism.

I may also be able to help students in higher grades (6-12th) if they have problems - particularly to help them with grammar and to write better papers. I am flexible with the schedule. MWF Evenings -6pm-8pm or Saturdays between 8am-12pm.

I have previous experience with working with students in PreK-6 and K-6 Special Education. I am also a parent of a second grader who consistently makes Honor Roll. Last year, I tutored a third grader in all subject areas. Her grades improved.

Other details about my qualifications I was salutatorian of my high school class.

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.
