Overview

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!

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!!!
