I received six hours of college credit in English from Trinity University based upon my entrance exam scores. As a substitute teacher I have taught English and Language Arts at all levels from kindergarten through high school. I have tutored students in English and Language Arts at all levels. My daughter was diagnosed with expressive language disorder. I tutored her extensively in English throughout elementary school, middle school, high and college. She graduated from Texas Lutheran University with degrees in Accounting, Finance and Business Administration in 2010.

About Julie

I am passionate about Music and Music Education. It's rewarding for me to watch my students develop in their musical skill and enjoy making music more and more. My students range from the very young (5 years old) to school age children, to teens, and adults. My students benefit from my expertise i

When I began lessons with Julie, I had piano experience, but it had been years, 35 actually, that had flown by. I've recently retired, and enjoy playing piano up to two hours each day. I chose Julie because of her expertise and experience. Julie is an outstanding teacher who possesses a legitimate love for music. She has a patient ability with simplifying complex subjects and makes learning fun. I hope to continue taking lessons with Julie for a long time to come. I would recommend Julie to anyone, at any age, interested in piano regardless of skill level.
Colby M.
As an adult student it was hard for me to finally commit to finally taking piano lessons. I always had the excuses that I was either too busy or too late in life to start.

Julie has gave me every reason to throw those excuses out the window. After a month of lessons I can already tell an improvement in my reading of music and knowledge of music. She knows how to making things easy for me to understand while also balancing that with a great challenge.

I have very high expectations and goals set for myself, that many would say are "too high". But I have no doubt Julie will get me to where I want to go!

100% would recommend to anyone.
Jordan F.
Just had my first lesson with Julie. She was great! So energetic, fun, and personable. It’s obvious she’s a seasoned educator who knows her subject. I left our first meeting confident I had chosen a teacher who will help me achieve my goals. Can’t wait to flourish under her instruction!

I teach grammar, phonics, word recognition and comprehension, vocabulary, spelling, and effective, expressive, and creative writing skills. I have been an avid reader and writer ever since my elementary school days. At college, I received a perfect score on my departmental English exam.

"Sebastian is a phenomenal instructor, who make sure to take his time explaining everything in depth. He not only tries to get you excited about the language you’re learning, yet by also finding ways to connected to other passions you have, to help keep you motivated to learn. He’s extremely thoughtful and compassionate, was even willing to work with a family emergency I had that popped up at the last minute without any hesitation. I would definitely recommend him to anybody who wanted to learn Spanish, no matter how much knowledge they had going in to the first lesson."

Upon completion of the first lesson, she motivated me to work for another 3 hours at the kitchen table in preparation for the next lesson. I am happy."

English Language Conversations for Beginners

Although words may be limited and simple, it is still possible to enjoy conversations in English even if you are a beginner. I think that it’s essential to be able to express basic needs and to clearly express your identity. Let’s get started with the very basics and then we’ll build from there. Greetings and Introductions: When meeting new people you need to be able to greet them. If you are in an informal situation you might say, “Hey, I’m (name), nice to meet you.” In order …
