Hi, I'm Jules. I'm an experienced ex-journalist with a love of the English language.
I hope to help your kids progress and inspire them to share my love of English. In an increasingly digital world, a knack for clear written communication will take them far in life!
I've been teaching on the postgraduate diploma in magazine journalism for the Press Association for over a decade, and it's so rewarding to see the young journalists I helped to mould go on to brilliant jobs - and even win awards.
Now with two children of my own, I want to help younger people improve their English skills. Reading shouldn't feel like a chore; every child is different and some just need to find the right book - or the right approach - to feel excited about it.
Similarly, grammar and punctuation aren't there to confuse us, but to help us take meaning from words. If they're taught in a simple way, they shouldn't seem stressful! There are few things I love more than seeing the penny drop when someone finally understands how to use apostrophes correctly… I'm delighted to say my students had great success in the new GCSEs last summer. One of my students who was predicted to fail achieved a 5, while another - who was graded as a 5 when I took her on - achieved the holy grail of a 9!
From my many years' experience in tutoring adults, I know how vital it is to get to know the student first. No two kids are the same and we all have different learning styles. My lessons are fun and I know how important it can be to build confidence.

Julia has found out what my daughter enjoys and caters her lessons around this to make them fun and engaging. My daughter is so happy when Julia is coming and actually hugs her when she leaves. She is a brilliant tutor that can see and bring out the potential in every child.
