My name is Justin and I've been a teacher/professor/tutor in both Orange County and San Diego county for the past 14 years and counting. I have a B.S. Chemistry/Biochemistry - UCSD - 1997, and a M.S. Chemistry - UCSD - 1999.

You'll see have quite a bit of experience as a teacher. I've taught high school chemistry (Sage Hill School) for 2 years, and I've taught college-level General Chemistry and Organic Chemistry at the following local junior colleges: OCC, IVC, Mt. SAC, Cypress College, and Mesa College in San Diego...

I've also written 2 chemistry books. In 2010 I completed "General Chemistry Notes," and just last year (2012) I wrote "Organic Chemistry Notes."

I'm more of an athlete than a geek, which is why I have such a good rapport with students. Name the high school in Orange County and I've probably tutored there. I'm a local guy and graduated from Newport Harbor in 1993. Go Sailors!

Algebra 1

I've been tutoring math (algebra, geometry, algebra 2, trigonometry, precalculus, calculus, SAT Math, ACT Math) for most of my life. My schedule is wide open, so I am available in an hour's notice. Teaching and tutoring are not "my hobby" - they're what I do for a living.

I'm a local guy (went to Newport Harbor H.S. in Newport Beach, class of 1993), and know my way around the Orange County area. Here are some of the local high schools where I've tutored mathematics (every math subject): Newport Harbor HS, Sage Hill School, Dana Hills HS, Mater Dei, Edison HS, Huntington Beach HS, Tustin HS, Irvine HS, Woodbridge HS, CDM HS, Laguna Hills HS, Santa Margarita HS, Mission Viejo HS, St. Margarets, Laguna Beach HS, Tesoro HS, Tarbut V'Torah, Servite HS, Fairmont Prep., and others to a lesser extent.


I've been a teacher/tutor of chemistry as a career for 14+ years and counting -- it's not a hobby; it's what I do.

I have a B.S. and a M.S. degree in chemistry, and I played soccer and baseball in college (UC San Diego).

I taught high school chemistry and AP chemistry for two years at Sage Hill School (Newport Coast), and I've been teaching general chemistry and organic chemistry at various local junior colleges (see my profile for all of the JC's).

I've also written two chemistry books: "General Chemistry Notes" and "Organic Chemistry Notes."

Organic Chemistry

I've written a book on Organic Chemistry.

I have a Master's degree in Chemistry, but the focus was Organic Chemistry.

I taught 1st Semester Organic Chemistry at Orange Coast College (both lecture and lab).

Right on spot. Justin did a good job for explaining some concepts right before the final exam. The tutoring session was productive. Well done. ...

Hourly fee

Standard Hourly Fee: $75.00

My hourly rate is simply "tutoring for the hour" -- so if there are two students, even three students, around the table instead of one student, it's still just $75/hour.
