Teaching since:
March 2006

I am a freelance tutor and translator. I have been tutoring for more than 8 years. I am very friendly, patient and professional. I tutor college students and children. I got my Associate in Arts and Sciences - Psychology from Union County College in NJ. On my sessions I apply constructivist teaching techniques which have proven excellent results. I am an avid observer of details which helps me determine the student's strengths. My classes are fun as playing a game! I am also a Therapeutic Mentor in Catholic Charities. In order to be accepted I had to get a full background check because I deal with very special and unique children.

I tutor kids and adults. Math and Spanish are challenging but with my help my students improve a lot.
Adults who struggle with computers do a lot better once they stop being afraid of them.
ESL sessions are fun because we discover another world of words and phrases!

A very great and engaging instructor! Julissa makes her best effort to understand the needs of a student and she thoroughly helps with parts that are harder to understand. I really enjoy working with her!

Our experience with Ms. Julissa was wonderful! Ms. Julissa stepped and corrected my daughter's mistakes but make the correction in a way that helped my daughter see her mistakes. Ms. Julissa ability to engage our daughter, gave her the drive and ambition to reactivate. My daughter is now on the right track. Thank you Ms. Julissa for your skills and willingness to help our child!!!

If we need you again we will reach out to you! Be blessed!!!!

Julissa is a wonderful instructor!!!

She challenges and encourages. She blends both conversational and textbook instruction.

She is very patient when I am a bit frustrated and she is very flexible when schedule changes need to be made. I have extended my original series of classes due to my satisfaction with her teaching style and the results I am seeing.

I highly recommend Julissa as a Spanish tutor!!!

I probably learned more algebra in 4 months with Ms.Julissa than I did in my whole high school career. She helped me prepare to retake the placement test at my college. My scores raised dramatically and I was moved up two math levels. Where was she when I was in high school?! She loves her students and she is passionate in making sure the goal that you have set for the tutoring is achieved.

Ms. Julissa did an excellent job with my daughter. She provided one on one tutoring, and her the math section of her SAT was increased due to math tutoring with Ms. Julissa. She also was a financial bargain compared to other tutors in the industry.

Excellent tutor! My daughter improved 2 grades (went from a C to and A). Her tests scores were also improved and she did a great job on her SAT and ACT tests. Julissa, has helped her with her confidence in Math overall! Julissa is very reliable and provides a structure that helps students to excel.

Julissa has been tutoring me in Spanish for a few months. I needed to begin with the basics. Julissa is patient and very thorough. The lessons she prepares for me, she does on her own time. She is punctual and very personable. I look forward to my lessons once a week. They are fun and packed full of information. I will continue receiving tutoring form Julissa for as long as it takes for me to thoroughly learn the language. She is a gem in the rough and I would highly recommend her services.

I take Advanced Spanish lessons from Julissa and have thoroughly enjoyed the sessions. She has tailored the sessions quite well to accommodate my learning needs and abilities and is very gracious with my sometimes tumultuous schedule changes. Julissa has wonderful command of her class sessions, but also makes the student feel completely relaxed and eager to learn. She offers corrections gently and points out the many ways one can express the same thought so that I have options that I can remember. Her background in psychology prompts her to really understand me as a student and adapt her teaching in ways that match my learning level and motivation (and that varies with the session, but she is also always ready to shift gears!). I look forward to my time with her and would recommend her to anyone who wants to improve their Spanish with an expert teacher who is enthusiastic to help you learn.
