Julie is a native-American English speaker who lives in the United States. She grew up in Ohio and lived in a number of countries in Europe, Asia and the Middle East as an adult. Today she makes her home in central Ohio, in a suburb of Columbus.
Julie’s ESL/EFL experience began in the 1980s teaching high school and college students, helping them prepare to perform well on their English tests. Through the 1990s she has had casual interaction with numerous internationals, providing opportunities for many to chat and receive some input into their language ability. Julie returned to Ohio in 2003, where she has become a certified tutor of international stay-at-home women and international professionals.
Julie understands that language acquisition is a process. Once a person has learned the first few words of the language, they are on their way! Whether the next step is talking about ordering food in a restaurant or launching a rocket into space, she is available to help with the English. Julie’s passion in her teaching is to applaud the acquired language, to build further understanding and to practice next steps. She looks forward to helping you in your next steps.
