Introduction: Hello! My name is Julia and I started tutoring 4 years ago and I love sharing my passion for studying with my students. I specialize in tutoring pre-med courses, including organic chemistry. I am currently a honors program junior at Loyola University Chicago double majoring in Biochemistry and Neuroscience and minoring in French. I graduated in the top 5% of my high school class and I am a biology, chemistry and physics tutor at my university. I can't wait to help you through your academic journey!

I selected Julia to tutor my son for his 11th grade IB Chemistry. Like many parents we want someone who is reliable and knowledgeable in the subject. Julia turned out to be extremely helpful. I selected many tutors at the time but Julia impressed me with her familiarity with IB and honor classes for high school students. From the first time she responded promptly to my request, to all the extra assignments she worked with my son, Julia is excellent in her expertise. She helped my son, who was struggling in chemistry at the time, by explaining the concept thoroughly. She went over all his missing assignments and gave him a better explanation than his teacher. He finished his IB chemistry with an “A-“ from a “D.” I know most of us parents sometimes wonder if the money is worthwhile!!! It was worth it for us. Of course the kid must put in the work too.! A tutor can only do so much. I didn’t expect a miracle worker but it turned out that way. I highly recommend Julia as a tutor for any STEM classes! She is prompt, responsible, knowledgeable, and very professional. And she is very pleasant to her student and to parents. -Kate, parent of a HS Junior

Very patience and kind. In my daughters first tutoring session she explained everything throughly allowing my daughter to have a understanding of her math work. She identified her weaknesses and is addressing these weaknesses with her. My daughter has gain confidence while working with Julia. Highly recommend her and will use her tutoring services in future. Thank you!!!

Julia’s teaching is so invaluable! I had been struggling with AP Physics for the past few months, but a lot of the formula work and concepts seem much more clearer with her instruction and guidance. She is always on time for appointments and responds to questions I have about the material quite quickly. One thing I particularly like about her tutoring sessions as well is that she challenges you and encourages you to delve deeper in what exactly you are not understanding. I really could not recommend her enough.

Julia was excellent helping my daughter prepare for her statistical reasoning exam. My daughter, who was against using a tutor, was very pleased and liked her tutor. Julia was friendly, encouraging, and patient. I would highly recommend her for any future tutoring needs in math.

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    My pricing is based on how advanced my student is in their studies.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    I always begin with an evaluation of my students' current knowledge based on their work done in school, after which I suggest a personalized plan to tackle their goals based on how much time they have before their next test, end of the semester etc. I always tailor my teaching to my students' personal needs. No student is the same nor do they all learn in the same way so I adapt my teaching style to best serve them.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I am currently a junior at Loyola University Chicago majoring in Biochemistry and Molecular/ Cellular Neuroscience on a premedical track. Due to my rigorous coursework, I am very familiar with the standards set upon college students and I myself have struggled and preserved through this material. I know what it takes to ace the dreaded "weed-out" classes of STEM and I know how to guide my students to success. Likewise, in high school, I took many AP classes including AP Biology, AP Chemistry, AP Physics 1, and AP Physics C among many others, giving me a unique and very recent perspective for mastering these difficult courses.
