Julia

I graduated Cum Laude from Kenyon College in 2013, with dual BA degrees in English and Anthropology. Reading is one of my primary passions, and I accordingly focus on tutoring literary comprehension and analysis. I also enjoy assisting students with test prep, essay writing, and cultural anthropology studies.

I began working as a tutor over eight years ago, as a high-school mentor that paired with elementary-aged kids who needed extra help. I continued to pursue this avenue throughout high school and ultimately college, where I became the designated TA for Kenyon's anthropology department, as well as a writing consultant and tutor through our school library and English program. Since my graduation, I have continued to work as a private tutor, providing assistance with everything from study skills to essay editing for students aged 7-17.

I find a special satisfaction in helping those who need a little extra attention in order to become enthusiastic about the learning process. I am the kind of approachable tutor whose zest for storytelling can really help boil down complicated and/or dry subject matter, and I find few things more gratifying than igniting the interest of previously bored students.

In my spare time, I enjoy singing, painting, reading, horseback riding, and jogging, as well as spending time with my pet dog and cat.
