Who am I?
My name is Julia Meyer, and I've lived in Arizona since July of 2008. In short, I love teaching and working with children. My overall approach to teaching and learning is dictated by observation of the student. See A Few Words to understand my operating philosophy.
The musical selections playing in the background are simply audio files of me "noodling" on my piano. Check out www.dictionary.com; scroll down to the third definition. Anyone know HOW it came to mean that?
My education and certification descriptions follow. If you'd like to learn more about my personal hobbies or other on-going projects of mine, please visit my business-related blog. Please feel free to contact me (via email using the "Contact Me" tab) or by telephone (602-579-8509) if you have any questions or comments.
