I am a PhD student at the University of Tennessee-Knoxville in Political Science (specializing in International Relations and the Middle East).

I'm a graduate of Duke University with a B.S. in Psychology & George Washington University with an M.S. in Forensic Science. I've spent time working in public policy on issues dealing with bioethics-stem cell research and cloning, medical research, and worked as an instructor for a museum in Washington DC. In the latter position, I routinely worked with and taught school groups of all ages.

I'm comfortable tutoring many subjects, but some of my favorites are English, Physics, Math, and Chemistry. Writing is a side project, something I do in my downtime for fun, so I am well-versed in grammar, critical reading, and several forms of writing (from fiction to research paper). I am also able to tutor Test Prep, including the SAT, ACT and the AFOQT.

I am also a big basketball fan (particularly college) and love to read mystery novels when I have the time!

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

AFOQT

I have taken the AFOQT within the past year as part of an application for AF Intelligence Officer. My scores were, across the board, very high in all sections of the test. This includes Pilot/Navigator sections, even though those are not counted towards Intel Officer candidacy.

Basketball

I played basketball through high school and played all four years of intramurals in college. I also currently do some work on the side analyzing basketball games. My specialty is basketball IQ and fundamentals.

Bible Studies

I grew up in the church. I have taken multiple Bible courses in both high school and college, as well as through various churches. I also recently spent 2 weeks in Israel studying the Bible in its context.

Criminal Justice

I have a Masters degree in Forensic Science, which required multiple courses in Criminal Justice. This included courses on Law and Procedure, as well as CSI techniques and concepts. I also currently teach forensics and some criminal law at a local museum for visiting school and tour groups.

Grammar

In high school, I scored a 5 on the AP English Language exam. I took several English courses in college, including a couple specifically on writing. I also like to write in my spare time and am working on my first novel.

Physics

I took 2 semesters of Physics while earning my B.S. at Duke University. In high school Physics, I scored a 5 on the AP Physics B exam. I also took a couple college engineering courses where physics was a large part of the curriculum.

Proofreading

I currently work with a critique group specifically designed around proofreading the writing of others.

Psychology

Understanding the human mind is of great fascination to me. I hold a Bachelor of Science in Psychology from Duke University. I also studied Forensic Psychology as part of a degree from George Washington University.

SAT Math

While in high school, I took math courses up through AP Calculus BC. I studied for and took the SAT a few times. I scored an 800 on the SAT Math portion.

Great, Patient, and Knowledgeable Tutor — Justin has taken a challenging subject (physics) and patiently made it more accessible and understandable for my son. He took the time to understand my son's academic strengths and link the physics lessons to those strengths when he could. He is very prompt in both responding to correspondence and in showing up for sessions. ...
