June Y.


June hails from sunny Southern California, the land of droughts and earthquakes. Looking for a change in scenery, she ended up at MIT, where she graduated with degrees in chemistry and chemical engineering. The highlights of her undergraduate years were certainly her research experiences in inorganic chemistry, where she published five papers and won the Department of Chemistry Research Award in her senior year. To continue this trajectory, June is now pursuing a PhD in chemistry at Harvard.

June has taught and mentored in many capacities. In the past, she has taught online and in-person, private and class sessions.  At Cambridge coaching, her strongest subjects are chemistry (whether it be at the high school, competition, or college level) and standardized testing (ACT, SAT, GRE). June has also written exams and developed rulesets for high school science competitions, where she thought extensively on how to make difficult concepts accessible. Her top priority is helping her students develop intellectually, usually by strengthening their foundational knowledge so that they can tackle any problem.

In her spare time, June enjoys drawing, writing, knitting, and crocheting. She remains closely involved with the Science Olympiad competition, writing exams and helping out with both the Harvard and MIT Invitationals.
