Wellesley High School student

“My new English class was intimidating. I needed a lot of help with close reading,  analytical writing, and grammar. Julia helped me improve in all three areas every time we worked together. She know how to teach grammar in a way that makes sense and translates to my writing. My grade went up right away. More importantly, I'm a more confident reader and writer now."  

Dana Hall School student

"Dr. Bucci is one of a kind. Her thoughtful, positive feedback was incredibly helpful during the stressful college essay process. For every part I didn't like, Dr. Bucci helped me dive beneath the surface and find the words to describe what was important to me."

Rivers School student

"The college essay. Ugh. Dr. Bucci patiently and cheerfully pulled great ideas out of me, ideas I never knew I had. She helped me write an essay I'm proud of. She is the college essay whisperer."
