I have over a decade of leadership experience working in K-12 and higher education settings. I have taught test prep classes and led students to dramatic growth, including shattering local records for average scores and gaining multiple points on rigorous exams within a short period of time.

Julie was far and away the best LSAT coach I worked with. She understood even the hardest questions on the exam and worked through things with me, step-by-step. She was also great at making things transferable to other questions and identifying trends in my thinking. Her strategies and tips were the effective I encountered - even in comparison to professional test prep companies / classes I took.
A super flexible schedule and curriculum that was catered to my needs. Allowed for mistakes, but still held me accountable to making sure I put in the work!
I like how she takes you step by step and doesn't overwhelm you. She makes you feel confident and wants you to be the best you can be at all times.
Really helpful on ACT and super flexible and accommodating with timing and dates! Also very open to explaining to me or teaching me whatever material or question I may not understand.
I start by introducing myself and my experience, then ask about what brings them to tutoring. I'll ask for relevant context, previous experience with the exam (and scored or practice scores, if available), and anticipated needs. We'll also set some goals together - long-range ones, such as a final score, as well as interim goals (re: pacing, growth, etc.). We'll establish a schedule and a rough scope and sequence of topics we need to cover. Based on the direction I get from this conversation, I'll usually start with a small diagnostic assessment that targets one of the high-priority areas we identified to cover and use that data to inform the concepts we work on during our initial session(s).
I am a former high school principal and high school teacher, as well as a leadership coach for high school teachers and principals in high-needs settings. I am also an experienced test prep and writing tutor for high school, college, and post-graduate students with a strong track record of success.
