Hi! I'm a recent graduate of Smith College where I majored in Computer Science. I loved my extensive experience as a paid teaching assistant, and it sparked my enthusiasm to continue private tutoring. My specialty is in helping people who are new to coding gain confidence. Nothing makes me happier than seeing those moments when things finally click for them, or hearing they did well on an exam they were dreading, or that they aced an assignment! For more advanced students, I love helping with...
I have had quite some hours of Python tutoring sessions with Julia so far, and plan to have more sessions with her in the future.
As an absolute beginner of Python, I struggle a lot in a graduate level Python class that is going at an extremely fast path. Julia truly knows Python and knows how to TEACH Python in a way that not only makes sense to me, but also tailors for my own studying style. Her tutoring and explanation are so clear and unambiguous (trust me - not all Python tutors are able to explain things this clearly). She always comes prepared if I send her my lecture notes and homework questions beforehand to make sure that we utilize our time most efficiently every time. I also like the Python study notes she compiled for her students - very handy.
Additionally, I truly appreciate Julia's honesty. I think it is a very important trait for any tutors. When my class covered a little bit on BASH, Julia told me that she had to brush up the material a little bit (because technically BASH is not really a Python thing) before she could tutor me. Unlike some other Wyzant tutors who claim they could tutor but ended up wasting a student time because they actually don't know the material well enough, Julia is very honest and holds high integrity as a tutor in that she will tell you exactly what she is best at and whether she can tutor you to meet the highest expectation. Your study time with her is highly efficient. She answers your questions and clears your confusion and you can tell your Python knowledge is improved after every session.
Overall, highly recommend Julia as a Python tutor!

Julia is both easy to talk to (never made me feel bad about not knowing something and was always happy to explain or show it to me) and is incredibly good at imparting her knowledge. We were working on a lab for my class, and along the way, she was able to really help me understand what she/I was doing. She has such a clear and organized way of thinking about things, and it shows in her teaching style. Super grateful for the help, and if you're looking someone who's both friendly and great at teaching, I'd say look no further than Julia.

Julia was very helpful, personable, conscientious and knowledgeable. A real pleasure to work with! She clearly explained different Java concepts, and went above and beyond. We will be using her again!

Julia worked with me on algorithms, which is a tough subject and hard to find anyone who can tutor it. She was probably the most friendly person with a CompSci background I've met, helped me to understand the material, and provided a lot of extra information in a very clear way and efficient way. I highly recommend her, she's probably the best CompSci tutor around.

Julia makes it clear she is super passionate about the material, your interest in it, and making sure you fully understand it. Pleasure to work with and super helpful!

Julia has been able to fill in the gaps my son has in an introductory high school Python coding class. He has been able to grasps the concepts of coding more readily with Julia's guidance. She is a lucky find! Provides wonderful feedback after each session too.

I did a lesson with Julia in Python. She was very knowledgeable and helped me break down the problem into small, easy to understand parts. She has a creative way of explaining computer science, which I liked.

great session comes to session prepared and is very focused imparting information
and is patient with her knowledge of python programming. I recommend her highly
