About

Hi, my name is Julia, a senior from Virginia. I love cooking, reading, and horseback riding. I also enjoy music. I have played piano for more than 10 years. I am trying to learn to play the violin (just had my 2nd class lol). As for the experience with sat and English overall, I have taken AP literature , AP Language, and multiple AP History courses( APUSH, AP Gov and AP World History). I have been practicing for SAT for a while too. I hope my class can be both helpful and enjoyable to everyone.

This four-week tutoring series will help you prepare for your upcoming SAT in both Reading and Writing & Language. By the end of the series, you will have completed multiple practice tests and worked through a number of problems from previous SATs, helping you build confidence for your upcoming exam. You’ll spend each session with me and a small group of other learners who are also working towards taking the SAT. Since it’s a small group, you can expect sessions to be very interactive as you work together towards improving your SAT skills as much as you can! Note: Cameras should be on so we can all get to know each other! If you have a specific reason why you can’t have your camera on, please notify me ahead of time.

✋ ATTENDANCE POLICY

Please do not miss more than one session over the four weeks, as that will negatively affect your learning and may also take up a spot from another learner who could have attended every session.

Message your tutor if you have an extenuating circumstance and must miss a session. If you have two unexcused absences, your tutor may remove you from the bootcamp series.
