About Julie

Give me a chance; you won't regret it!!!

I can help you or your student understand math and/ or science better! I enjoy tutoring and develop long term relationships with my clients.

This is my fourth school year here in northern Virginia. I have built solid relationships with my tutoring clients. Now, that two of them are off to college, I have space available to add more clients. I believe that I can break down difficult concepts and give real life applications to math and science concepts. I work well with middle and high school students as well as adults and college students.

I graduated from DePaul University in Chicago with a Masters in Chemistry; I also received a BS in Chemistry with a minor in Math and Physics from DePaul. I tutored extensively in college and also taught several lab classes. After college, I worked in the chemical industry for several years. I have continued to tutor on and off through the years.

I spend most of my days taking care of my kids, so patience is pretty much my middle name! I look forward to helping you or your child understand and excel in math or science.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Chemistry

I have a Master's Degree in Polymer Chemistry. I have tutored students on and off over the last ten years in the subject. Most recently, I tutored a high school student in chemistry, where we worked to raise her grade from a low B to a solid A at the end of the year.

Organic Chemistry

I have a master's degree in chemistry with an emphasis in polymer chemistry. During my fellowship in college, I taught organic chemistry lab classes, tutored organic chemistry, and graded labs/ tests. I worked in the chemical industry for seven years; six of those years were spent at a specialty chemical plant where I worked on process development for organic chemistry processes.

She always worked around my crazy daily schedule. She alwa ...
