About Julia


Bio

I know school can feel stressful. I know many students have lots of commitments, busy schedules, and competing priorities that pull them in many directions. It can be hard to balance it all. My professional background and individualized approach allow me to help students to manage academic demands, develop organizational skills, and meet challenges with greater ease and effectiveness.

I know school can feel stressful. I know many students have lots of commitments, busy schedules, and competing priorities that pull them in many directions. It can be hard to balance it all. My professional background and individualized approach allow me to help students to manage academic demands, develop organizational skills, and meet challenges with greater ease and effectiveness.

I am a full-time academic tutor and Co-Active Life Coach. I currently work with students of all ages and offer a uniquely designed program for college students. In addition to working on organizational and study strategies, I help students with a variety of subjects and topics.

I graduated Phi Beta Kappa from Wesleyan University, majoring in American Studies and Environmental Studies. I am also a certified Co-Active Life Coach through the Coaches Training Institute. This training provides me with invaluable, unique tools to help students learn and thrive both academically and personally. I bring a depth and breadth of experience to my one-on-one sessions with students, having worked as a tutor and academic coach for nearly a decade. In addition to this, I taught middle school English and history for three years. I believe in using humor and honesty in all of my sessions. Above all else is my extensive experience building successful, effective, and empowering tutoring relationships where students gain confidence as they meet their goals and integrate life-long skills for satisfaction and fulfillment in their lives.

My coaching approach works because it is custom-designed for each individual. Students gain confidence in their ability to take on new challenges while discovering how they learn best. My goal is to empower each student as they acquire new skills and techniques for taking charge of academic demands and their lives in general. I love my connections with students and believe it is the trusting, authentic relationships that we form together that contribute to their success. I have seen how invaluable my one-on-one relationships with students are in helping them to gain self-confidence and enjoyment of the learning process. I encourage you to reach out and see how I might be of service.

Great life coach

Julia is working with my 16yo son to help him be more organized and successful. She is very patient and knowledgeable and has great rapport with teens. We starting to see my son to have a better handle on his school work.

Smart, caring, enthusiastic tutor

Julia helped my daughter with history and is very knowledgeable about the subject and the needs of an AP class. But what really sets her apart is her kind enthusiasm, strong communications skills and excellent rapport with teens.
