About this tutor

Hi,

I'm Julian, a 18 year old heading to Georgetown University. I always tutored through highschool, and I plan on continuing to do so in college. I enjoy sharing my interests with others, and as part time gigs go, teaching is pretty good.

I've been through the grind of scholastic competitions, in Math, Writing, Piano, and Chess. I scored perfect scores on the SAT Math 2, SAT Literature, and SAT U.S. History, as well as 5's and 4's in 7 APs (including Calculus BC). I have several awards from the NLE (National Latin Exam) and the Scholastic Arts and Writing competition. So when I work with kids in preperation for a test or competition, I try my best to approach the subject in a manner I would have appreciated.

Like I said, I usually take on younger students, and mostly focus on SAT test prep, or just general help with homework. But if some adults are willing to take advice from a teenager, I'd be more than happy to help, and I have helped college students before.

Teaching is fun. 

But also, like, money. Anyone else saying otherwise is trying to sell you something.

    Julian is a genius in Math. First time I was tutored by him, he explained me everything about my work and made sure that I understand them. I highly recommend Julian to be your Math tutor, and you won’t regret it. However, I look forward for him to be my tutor whenever I get stuck in Math.



FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

I'd like to first meet the prospective student for free, so both sides can make sure nothing sketchy is going on. Then, hopefully, we can discuss/negotiate future lessons.


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

I scored an 800 on the SAT 2 Math exam, as well as the Math section on the general SAT. Additionally, I scored a 5 on the AP Calculus test BC, with a subscore of 5 for the AB portion. 

I scored the same perfect scores for the SAT 2 US History exam, and the AP USH exam respectively.

I'm a former two-time CT state champion in chess. I'm currently ranked in the top 50 nationally for my age, and my peak rating is 2006. I placed 6th in Nationals, and have experiance both as a chess tutor, and as a tournament director for the USCF.

Latin. A bit of a niche field, but maybe someone will be interested in lessons. I've 4 Gold Medals from the National Latin Exam, and a 4 in the AP Latin exam. I've read Caesar, Horace, Catullus, and Virgil. 

Right now, I'm working in Immunology. But I'm still an avid chess player, and I refresh my mind on academics subjects whenever necessary.


Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

I'd like to be reasonable, especially considering age/distance. Probably around 40-50 dollars an hour. But definitely wiggle room.


How did you get started teaching?

Honestly, I just needed a side job as a highschooler (not an uncommon plight). Always liked playing at educator. 


What types of students have you worked with?

Mostly younger students, whose parents want to improve their chess game, or Math score. But I'd be open to working with older teens, or adults as well.


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

One of my recent students has nearly improved beyond my skills. It's getting tough to keep up. She's younger, but plays internationally with success.


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Look for someone capable, affordable, and not-a-creep.

(includes me, I think)


What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

Just try to approach a lesson positively, looking to learn. It'll all flow from there. A productive attitude leads to improvement.
