Julie is fantastic at connecting with both kids and parents immediately. She taught our daughter an organizational system that really works (even for a kid who's quite disorganized by nature), and immediately brought her a measure of calm and a sense of being in control of her time and her work. Highly, highly recommended.

Julie has taught our son organizational skills, study skills and time management tactics that have proven invaluable. In just a few short months, we have seen him take much more ownership of his homework and show greater maturity in his responsibilities overall.

Julie, I thank you for getting us on the right track. The fact that you came into our home and experienced the dynamics here is what I think sets you apart from other mentors. You’re a must needed resource for many people.

Both my children loved working with Julie! They connected with her immediately and got "hooked" into her methods of organization. She made a huge difference in my children's approach to long term assignments as well as day to day events.

I highly recommend Julie Jacoby as an Adolescent Mentor. Her incredible warmth and kind approach instantly made my child feel comfortable with her from the day they met. The organization techniques that she taught my daughter in 6th grade have been the strong foundation of her excellent study skills that she still follows today in high school and that I know will stay with her well into college. She is always prompt and a true professional and an absolute pleasure to be around!

Our daughter is pretty good at “selling her story,” but Julie was always a step ahead of her, and gently but firmly and effectively got the focus back to what our daughter’s responsibilities were. In the beginning, the techniques were used mechanically, which worked, but two years later, we’re delighted that better organization has been internalized. We whole-heartedly recommend Julie to work with children who always seem to be a day late and an essay short.
