About Justin

You've probably always wondered why some students excel in English and Writing while others struggle. Well, I'm going to tell you the successful students' secret now, a difficult process that requires a lot of mental energy if not properly understood or approached:

Read – Think – Write

Observe – Understand – Describe

These three steps are the secret to success in English, Reading, and Writing. No, it's not a magical formula. It's a base concept. English and Writing is about understanding what makes something what it is and being able to describe those defining characteristics to another person. If this process isn't properly understood or approach, it can seem nearly impossible to understand or describe something or someone--someone such as myself.

So then, who am I?

My name is Justin. I'm a published writer who's worked in education, marketing, and film production. Here's what makes me the right person to tutor you or your child: I possess a BA in Writing from Ithaca College, an MA in Professional Communication with an emphasis in Teaching from Clemson University, and four years of teaching experience at Clemson University (General Composition and Business/Technical Writing. I've completed many hours of 1-on-1 tutoring sessions with students that always raised their grades. I scored 700 out of 800 on the SATII for Writing (before Writing became a regular section on the test and a perfect 6.0 on the GRE Analytical Writing section (only 4% of test takers receive this score. I'm a published writer in both fiction and non-fiction. My teaching style features a relaxed focus on enjoying the process of reading/writing (not immediate results).

Hopefully by now you've surmised that I'm a talented and passionate educator and you're looking forward to talking to me about how I can help you or your child improve in English, Reading, or Writing. I know I'm excited to figure out the best way to approach helping you reach your goals, provided that you're as sure as I am that I'm the best person for the job.
