Writer Julia Young, Writing & Content
My biggest passion in life is writing. I graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in History and was required to master my ability to write highly structured, creative, and well-researched essays. I had to write many research essays and even a short story based on historical documents. After graduating I worked as a private tutor, a kindergarten teacher, and a tutor for a tutoring center. As a tutor for the tutoring center I often helped children and adolescents with their writing skills. I encouraged them to become better writers by teaching them how to edit and write grammatically-correct sentences that have good flow. I also taught students how to write vivid, detailed, and imaginative stories. I regularly read and write outside of work because I am determined to continually improve my ability to write. As an avid reader of current events and history, it is my dream to be able to research in my career and directly apply my writing skills. EDUCATION ● Bachelor of Arts in History WORK EXPERIENCE ● Experience as a private tutor ● Experience as a substitute teacher in Doral Academy Preparatory School ● Experience as a kindergarten teacher in Championship Academy ● Experience working as an FSA writing tutor in the Tutoring Center ADDITIONAL SKILLS ● Adept at using Microsoft software ● Bilingual: speaks and writes both English and Spanish fluently ● Can type quickly
