Julia has always loved to teach. When she was in the 10th grade, she led writing workshops for students who were falling behind in school. She devoted her extracurricular time at Princeton to running a program aimed at helping students be the first in their families to attend college. When she graduated, Julia promoted health literacy by teaching Spanish-speakers how to navigate Bellevue, New York City’s oldest hospital. She has been a Cambridge Coaching tutor for the past five years, and her area of expertise is admissions coaching.
