My name is Julie and I am a PhD Student at Tufts University studying Nutritional Biochemisty and Biostatistics. I first discovered my passion for tutoring as an undergraduate at the University of Michigan, where I worked as an Organic Chemistry study group leader. I joined Varsity Tutors after graduating, and have since been working one-on-one with undergraduate and graduate students in the Boston area. During these experiences, I have learned how to be both an effective tutor and an encouraging mentor. I guide my students through challenging questions; helping them understand the process as much as the answer and gain confidence along the way.

Fun Facts:
* I worked for a non-profit for 2 years, developing and writing nutritional articles for a monthly newsletter
* I love to juggle and I started the first student run juggling club at the University of Michigan
* I was born and raised in Newton, MA

Q & A

What is your teaching philosophy?

I believe that understanding the thought process behind a question is just as important as the answer itself. Therefore, my goal is to guide my students through each question - helping them to develop strategic and effective problem solving skills that they can use in the future.

What might you do in a typical first session with a student?

In any first session I try to get to know my students - where are they at with the material? What specific concepts are giving them trouble? Once this is accomplished I would give my students a practice question and have them explain their thought process to me. My goal here is to better understand how their brain works and how I can tailor my tutoring to meet their needs. Lastly, I would devise a plan with my student for what they want me to bring and what they want to accomplish in future sessions.
