Private Tutor Available

I have experience working with kids ages 3-18 in math, reading, and test prep. I absolutely love working with and teaching children. I spent two years working as an Early Learning Instructor in a tutoring center, and I have worked the last five years as a private tutor. In my time as a private tutor, I have worked with 10 families. I love watching the kids' self-confidence grow as they gain knowledge and skills. I strive to get to know my students and to find the best way to teach based on their individual personality and learning style. I have experience working with kids with learning and developmental disabilities including Asperger Syndrome, Tourette Syndrome, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, ADHD, Dyslexia, and Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder. I currently work as an ABA implementer for a teen with autism, and I will be graduating with my bachelor's degree in Psychology and Studio Art from Washington University in St. Louis in May.

We've had 10+ tutors in our home over the course of 4 years, ranging from foreign language to chemistry to ACT, and all have been outstanding, but no one compares to Julia when it comes to preparation for a lesson. Julia continues to think about her students when she leaves the lesson, then returns for the next lesson where she targets specific deficiencies and often leaves notes that are better than the high school instructors. Regardless of how advanced the content became, Julia knew how to do it, as well as how to break it down into simple steps for the student. She often improved test scores from C's to A's over the course of a semester. We love her dearly, and my daughter continued to beg for her lessons even when we could no longer meet with her due to her college location. (In fact, selfishly, I probably wouldn't write this recommendation if she was still tutoring my daughter because I wouldn't want to lose her to anyone else.)
