My name is Justin. I'm here to let you all know about me, as a tutor, my background, etc.
Very briefly, I received my high school diploma in 1998. I went on to a small private college, where I received a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Christian Education in 2002. That summer, I had an internship in New Mexico, running a youth program and beginning an elementary school-aged after school program. I had 40 children in my care in that age group. The after school program included a tutoring hour everyday. The children's grades all went up by the end of the school term. I'd like to think the tutoring hour helped them.
I enjoy working with children. I'm very patient and understanding. I love education in general and I personally try to learn something new every day. I am constantly seeking new learning opportunities to further my own personal education.
My passion for learning and teaching comes from my family. My father was an educator for 33 years (High School teacher, Middle School Assistant Principal, and Elementary School Assistant Principal); he has a BA, a Master's, and a Doctorate in the education field. My mother is currently a substitute teacher. And my sister has her BA in Elementary Education and is currently a tutor and substitute teacher herself.
I love learning and teaching. I would love to pass on that passion for learning to the future of this country, including my own 20 month old daughter. I've been reading books to her since before she was born and still read to her every night. She loves books. I have no doubt she will be a seeker of knowledge as well.
Thank you and I look forward to working with you.
