Testimonials

"Julia has just been incredibly flexible, patient and tireless without being pushy. She's a huge support. Highly credible and trustworthy. She's the main reason we prioritized tutoring with JAM."

Priya Koduri

"I think JAM carefully listened to our concerns and connected us with an appropriate tutor."

JAM Parent

"Our biggest celebration with JAM is how much my son looks forward to the sessions."

JAM Parent

"Our son connected immediately with Taylor, she is very warm and communicative. Our interactions with her have been absolutely positive."

JAM Parent

"Spoiler alert, the tutor is fabulous! She's made such a great connection with my daughter and boosted her confidence and grades. I would recommend JAM to anyone and everyone. It's a very individualized approach and the tutor is very organized and communicative. She came in and hit the ground running."

JAM Parent

"JAM has been a great experience for me. As a teacher, I was looking for different ways to continue my role outside of the classroom. As a tutor, I have been able to see the impact of students learning executive functioning skills (i.e. how to study, how to get organized, how to manage time, etc.) and the growth they've seen. I have been nothing but pleased with the support and culture at JAM, and I am happy to be a part of something so great."

Maggie

"We love and would be lost without Julia-can't say it any better than that. Julia is a force multiplier. She asks great questions and is a very effective advocate. She thinks about things no one else does and she's fantastic!"

JAM Parent

"I was searching for families to work with in the Chicagoland area and Julia reached out to me to share about JAM. I’m so glad she made the connection because joining the JAM team has been the best decision for me. JAM takes care of all of the extra stuff (billing, curriculum resources, finding families) and allows me to focus on supporting students. Julia serves as a thought partner for me if I need support with students I tutor. JAM is a very collaborative environment and any member of the team is happy to jump in and help me out if I need it. Working for JAM has allowed tutoring to be an added benefit to my life."

Maggie

"I love Julia - her easy breezy, loving personality comes through even through the screen. Vivian looks forward to her time with Miss Julia!"

Beth N.

"Thank you for starting this journey with me. I feel like I am in such great hands. You feel like such a warm hug through the phone."

JAM Parent

"Julia is a significant asset to students and families of students with dyslexia. I have referred 5+ people to Julia and they have all called me later to express their gratitude for meeting her and learning from her. Julia has transformed our community's support of dyslexia."

JAM Parent

"Tutoring has been so helpful! She has made so much growth at her time with JAM. The ability for the tutors to connect and work with the school is helpful too."

JAM Parent

Working with Julia has been a gamechanger for us. As parents, we didn't know how to support our first-grader with reading since it didn't seem to come 'naturally' to her. Once we got the diagnosis of dyslexia, a friend highly recommended JAM Teaching as an incredible resource, and I am so grateful she did. Julia helped to humanize the dyslexia diagnosis for us. Rather than being a scary clinical thing that defined our daughter, Julia helped our daughter and us to learn how to navigate it and capitalize on her strengths as a learner. In just two months, our daughter has made incredible gains, is interested in reading and learning and looks forward to her daily Zoom sessions with Miss Julia. I am so grateful that Miss Julia is part of our team of loving and creative adults supporting our daughter in her learning.

Julie H

"Thank you for having so much faith in me. So much of how you lead and how you teach really impacted me in large beautiful ways, and definitely started me down this special education path! Know I think you’re just the very best!"

JAM Tutor

"I am so happy that I found JAM Teaching. We just started tutoring for two of my children ages 11 and 5 years. Both tutors are great fits for our kids and we are already seeing improvement in terms of confidence and academic skills. Julia did a great job pairing each kid with an appropriate tutor and scheduling has been so easy."

Theresa R.

"We have seen a massive transformation in Annika over these past many weeks, as has she. Her ability to recognize and work through her emotions has been tremendous. We are so grateful!"

J.H.

Julia has had such a positive impact on our son. She understands his personality and learning characteristics, which helped develop a strong working relationship. We are so happy to see his growth a person, beyond schoolwork, thanks to all of her help!

Tim C

Ryan’s confidence has grown since working with Julia. I also appreciate knowing that he’s working with someone who has a clear, comprehensive plan. I appreciate the wealth of experience & knowledge Julia brings to each session.

J. K.

"I feel smarter since we started. You have taught me to not give up on figuring out words. I keep trying and don’t give up."

JAM Student

Julia is a remarkable teacher. She has immense patience and great insight. Without Julia’s guidance we would not have managed school and home successfully for the past few years. Her assistance with the IEP process made us confident to advocate for our son. You can tell she really cares for each one of her students. We are very lucky to have her as a tutor for our son!

Marie M.

Julia is an asset to any student's academic team! She’s approachable and easy going but direct and firm when working with our boy. She has helped us continue to identify and progress his literacy areas that need growth. She is able to help interpret certain school district and state level documents if needed for learning differences. Our boy always finishes feeling accomplished and positive despite his areas of struggle! When asked who he prefers to work on difficult tasks with he answers “Julia!” I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Julia for any type of student.

Laurie C.

"I have loved working with JAM and really appreciate every opportunity you have given me. I also have learned a lot from the professional development meetings that I implement everyday in the classroom! I love to see that JAM is growing so much! You are phenomenal at what you do and I am not surprised!"

JAM Tutor

Julia has been such a gift to our son and our family! We hired her to tutor our 1st grade son, who was in a mainstream class but has some special needs and was really struggling with the remote learning during the shutdown. Julia engaged and motivated him immediately. I have never seen someone able to work with him so well. She is energetic, warm, and kind, while also being firm and structured in order to keep my son on task. She goes above and beyond in terms of both prepping for their sessions and in terms of follow-up and collaborative planning. I cannot recommend her highly enough for any student - special needs or not. We love Julia!

Working with Julia has been a gamechanger for us. As parents, we didn't know how to support our first-grader with reading since it didn't seem to come 'naturally' to her. Once we got the diagnosis of dyslexia, a friend highly recommended JAM Teaching as an incredible resource, and I am so grateful she did. Julia helped to humanize the dyslexia diagnosis for us. Rather than being a scary clinical thing that defined our daughter, Julia helped our daughter and us to learn how to navigate it and capitalize on her strengths as a learner. In just two months, our daughter has made incredible gains, is interested in reading and learning and looks forward to her daily Zoom sessions with Miss Julia. I am so grateful that Miss Julia is part of our team of loving and creative adults supporting our daughter in her learning.

Julia has had such a positive impact on our son. She understands his personality and learning characteristics, which helped develop a strong working relationship. We are so happy to see his growth a person, beyond schoolwork, thanks to all of her help!

Julia has been such a gift to our son and our family! We hired her to tutor our 1st grade son, who was in a mainstream class but has some special needs and was really struggling with the remote learning during the shutdown. Julia engaged and motivated him immediately. I have never seen someone able to work with him so well. She is energetic, warm, and kind, while also being firm and structured in order to keep my son on task. She goes above and beyond in terms of both prepping for their sessions and in terms of follow-up and collaborative planning. I cannot recommend her highly enough for any student - special needs or not. We love Julia!

Julia is a remarkable teacher. She has immense patience and great insight. Without Julia’s guidance we would not have managed school and home successfully for the past few years. Her assistance with the IEP process made us confident to advocate for our son. You can tell she really cares for each one of her students. We are very lucky to have her as a tutor for our son!

Julia is an asset to any student's academic team! She’s approachable and easy going but direct and firm when working with our boy. She has helped us continue to identify and progress his literacy areas that need growth. She is able to help interpret certain school district and state level documents if needed for learning differences. Our boy always finishes feeling accomplished and positive despite his areas of struggle! When asked who he prefers to work on difficult tasks with he answers “Julia!” I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Julia for any type of student.

"I was searching for families to work with in the Chicagoland area and Julia reached out to me to share about JAM. I’m so glad she made the connection because joining the JAM team has been the best decision for me. JAM takes care of all of the extra stuff (billing, curriculum resources, finding families) and allows me to focus on supporting students. Julia serves as a thought partner for me if I need support with students I tutor. JAM is a very collaborative environment and any member of the team is happy to jump in and help me out if I need it. Working for JAM has allowed tutoring to be an added benefit to my life."

"JAM has been a great experience for me. As a teacher, I was looking for different ways to continue my role outside of the classroom. As a tutor, I have been able to see the impact of students learning executive functioning skills (i.e. how to study, how to get organized, how to manage time, etc.) and the growth they've seen. I have been nothing but pleased with the support and culture at JAM, and I am happy to be a part of something so great."

"Spoiler alert, the tutor is fabulous! She's made such a great connection with my daughter and boosted her confidence and grades. I would recommend JAM to anyone and everyone. It's a very individualized approach and the tutor is very organized and communicative. She came in and hit the ground running."

"Julia is a significant asset to students and families of students with dyslexia. I have referred 5+ people to Julia and they have all called me later to express their gratitude for meeting her and learning from her. Julia has transformed our community's support of dyslexia."

"I am so happy that I found JAM Teaching. We just started tutoring for two of my children ages 11 and 5 years. Both tutors are great fits for our kids and we are already seeing improvement in terms of confidence and academic skills. Julia did a great job pairing each kid with an appropriate tutor and scheduling has been so easy."

Working with Julia has been a gamechanger for us. As parents, we didn't know how to support our first-grader with reading since it didn't seem to come 'naturally' to her. Once we got the diagnosis of dyslexia, a friend highly recommended JAM Teaching as an incredible resource, and I am so grateful she did. Julia helped to humanize the dyslexia diagnosis for us. Rather than being a scary clinical thing that defined our daughter, Julia helped our daughter and us to learn how to navigate it and capitalize on her strengths as a learner. In just two months, our daughter has made incredible gains, is interested in reading and learning and looks forward to her daily Zoom sessions with Miss Julia. I am so grateful that Miss Julia is part of our team of loving and creative adults supporting our daughter in her learning.

Julia has had such a positive impact on our son. She understands his personality and learning characteristics, which helped develop a strong working relationship. We are so happy to see his growth a person, beyond schoolwork, thanks to all of her help!
Tim C
Lead Developer, Flowbase
Julia has been such a gift to our son and our family! We hired her to tutor our 1st grade son, who was in a mainstream class but has some special needs and was really struggling with the remote learning during the shutdown. Julia engaged and motivated him immediately. I have never seen someone able to work with him so well. She is energetic, warm, and kind, while also being firm and structured in order to keep my son on task. She goes above and beyond in terms of both prepping for their sessions and in terms of follow-up and collaborative planning. I cannot recommend her highly enough for any student - special needs or not. We love Julia!
Kate and Michael
Lead Developer, Flowbase
Julia is a remarkable teacher. She has immense patience and great insight. Without Julia’s guidance we would not have managed school and home successfully for the past few years. Her assistance with the IEP process made us confident to advocate for our son. You can tell she really cares for each one of her students. We are very lucky to have her as a tutor for our son!
Marie M.
Lead Developer, Flowbase
Julia is an asset to any student's academic team! She’s approachable and easy going but direct and firm when working with our boy. She has helped us continue to identify and progress his literacy areas that need growth. She is able to help interpret certain school district and state level documents if needed for learning differences. Our boy always finishes feeling accomplished and positive despite his areas of struggle! When asked who he prefers to work on difficult tasks with he answers “Julia!” I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Julia for any type of student.

"I was searching for families to work with in the Chicagoland area and Julia reached out to me to share about JAM. I’m so glad she made the connection because joining the JAM team has been the best decision for me. JAM takes care of all of the extra stuff (billing, curriculum resources, finding families) and allows me to focus on supporting students. Julia serves as a thought partner for me if I need support with students I tutor. JAM is a very collaborative environment and any member of the team is happy to jump in and help me out if I need it. Working for JAM has allowed tutoring to be an added benefit to my life."
Maggie

JAM Parent

"JAM has been a great experience for me. As a teacher, I was looking for different ways to continue my role outside of the classroom. As a tutor, I have been able to see the impact of students learning executive functioning skills (i.e. how to study, how to get organized, how to manage time, etc.) and the growth they've seen. I have been nothing but pleased with the support and culture at JAM, and I am happy to be a part of something so great."

Julia has had such a positive impact on our son. She understands his personality and learning characteristics, which helped develop a strong working relationship. We are so happy to see his growth a person, beyond schoolwork, thanks to all of her help!

Julia has been such a gift to our son and our family! We hired her to tutor our 1st grade son, who was in a mainstream class but has some special needs and was really struggling with the remote learning during the shutdown. Julia engaged and motivated him immediately. I have never seen someone able to work with him so well. She is energetic, warm, and kind, while also being firm and structured in order to keep my son on task. She goes above and beyond in terms of both prepping for their sessions and in terms of follow-up and collaborative planning. I cannot recommend her highly enough for any student - special needs or not. We love Julia!

Julia is a remarkable teacher. She has immense patience and great insight. Without Julia’s guidance we would not have managed school and home successfully for the past few years. Her assistance with the IEP process made us confident to advocate for our son. You can tell she really cares for each one of her students. We are very lucky to have her as a tutor for our son!

Julia is an asset to any student's academic team! She’s approachable and easy going but direct and firm when working with our boy. She has helped us continue to identify and progress his literacy areas that need growth. She is able to help interpret certain school district and state level documents if needed for learning differences. Our boy always finishes feeling accomplished and positive despite his areas of struggle! When asked who he prefers to work on difficult tasks with he answers “Julia!” I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Julia for any type of student.

"I was searching for families to work with in the Chicagoland area and Julia reached out to me to share about JAM. I’m so glad she made the connection because joining the JAM team has been the best decision for me. JAM takes care of all of the extra stuff (billing, curriculum resources, finding families) and allows me to focus on supporting students. Julia serves as a thought partner for me if I need support with students I tutor. JAM is a very collaborative environment and any member of the team is happy to jump in and help me out if I need it. Working for JAM has allowed tutoring to be an added benefit to my life."

"We love and would be lost without Julia-can't say it any better than that. Julia is a force multiplier. She asks great questions and is a very effective advocate. She thinks about things no one else does and she's fantastic!"

"JAM has been a great experience for me. As a teacher, I was looking for different ways to continue my role outside of the classroom. As a tutor, I have been able to see the impact of students learning executive functioning skills (i.e. how to study, how to get organized, how to manage time, etc.) and the growth they've seen. I have been nothing but pleased with the support and culture at JAM, and I am happy to be a part of something so great."

It's a very individualized approach and the tutor is very organized and communicative. She came in and hit the ground running."

"I am so happy that I found JAM Teaching. We just started tutoring for two of my children ages 11 and 5 years. Both tutors are great fits for our kids and we are already seeing improvement in terms of confidence and academic skills. Julia did a great job pairing each kid with an appropriate tutor and scheduling has been so easy."

Ryan’s confidence has grown since working with Julia. I also appreciate knowing that he’s working with someone who has a clear, comprehensive plan. I appreciate the wealth of experience & knowledge Julia brings to each session.

Working with Julia has been a gamechanger for us. As parents, we didn't know how to support our first-grader with reading since it didn't seem to come 'naturally' to her. Once we got the diagnosis of dyslexia, a friend highly recommended JAM Teaching as an incredible resource, and I am so grateful she did. Julia helped to humanize the dyslexia diagnosis for us. Rather than being a scary clinical thing that defined our daughter, Julia helped our daughter and us to learn how to navigate it and capitalize on her strengths as a learner. In just two months, our daughter has made incredible gains, is interested in reading and learning and looks forward to her daily Zoom sessions with Miss Julia. I am so grateful that Miss Julia is part of our team of loving and creative adults supporting our daughter in her learning.
