About Justin

My name is Justin and I'm currently working full-time as an Energy Engineer with Lockheed Martin. I have a Bachelor's Degree in Mechanical Engineering with an emphasis in design (3.65 GPA) and a minor in business (project management). I'm currently in the process of obtaining my Master's degree from SJSU in Mechanical Engineering (3.5 GPA). In addition, I regularly attend utility-sponsored courses and tradeshows related to energy efficiency to ensure that I stay up to date on the latest technology.

In my free time, I enjoy camping, riding dirt bikes, playing hockey, and working on projects around the house and backyard. I also enjoy cooking, but am terrible at it =)

I've worked part-time at Professional Tutors of America since early 2016, primarily tutoring elementary school students in grammar, reading and writing. However, I'm also comfortable tutoring elementary science and math. Though my current experience has been mostly focused around younger students, I'm comfortable working with adult students as well. I have an extensive background in Microsoft Office software, primarily focused around Excel and Word, and have a considerable amount of "real-life" applications/projects that I'd be happy to share.

I tutor using the "learning by doing" approach, in which I walk students through sample exercises, offering suggestions and prompting them with leading questions throughout the process. I've had great results with this methodology, mostly due in part that the students are solving the problems themselves, and I'm essentially there to support them and lead them along the correct path. In addition, I like to tailor the exercises to match the interests of the students. This not only keeps them more interested in the topic, but seems to make it easier for the students to relate as well.

Due to my full-time position at Lockheed, my tutoring hours are currently limited to weekends (Saturday/Sunday) between the hours of 9AM and 5PM. My hourly rate is $25/hour, though if you are financially constrained, I'd be willing to negotiate.

If you have any additional questions about me, the subjects I tutor, or my credentials, please feel free to send me a message. Thanks!

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.

Algebra 1

I have 8 years of experience at a professional capacity performing calculations as an Energy Engineer with Lockheed Martin. The calculations range from simple mathematics (addition/subtraction) all the way to differential equations. Furthermore, I have a Bachelor's Degree in Mechanical Engineering and an in the process of obtaining my Master's Degree, both of which entail a strong grasp of advanced mathematics.

Grammar

I have 8 years of experience at a professional capacity of writing and reviewing technical reports as an Energy Engineer with Lockheed Martin. In addition, I've worked as a tutor since early 2016 tutoring elementary and middle school students in grammar. Furthermore, I have a Bachelor's Degree in Mechanical Engineering and am in the process of obtaining my Master's Degree, both of which entail a strong understanding of proper grammar and writing technique.

Microsoft Excel

I've actively used Microsoft Excel in a professional capacity for the last 8 years. I'm familiar with numerous analysis techniques, functions, and various sorting/filtering features. In addition, I've created worksheets ranging from financial forecasts all the way to modeling the operation of chiller used for air conditioning. Excel is a great tool, and I'd be happy to share my experience!

Microsoft Word

I have 8 years of experience at a professional capacity in writing and reviewing technical reports as an Energy Engineer with Lockheed Martin, exclusively using Microsoft Word. Furthermore, I have a Bachelor's Degree in Mechanical Engineering and am in the process of obtaining my Master's Degree, both of which entail writing a considerable amount of technical reports using word processing software.

Proofreading

I have 8 years of experience at a professional capacity in writing and proofreading technical reports as an Energy Engineer with Lockheed Martin. In addition, I've not only proofread reports for our current program, but have been requested to assist other programs as well. Furthermore, I have a Bachelor's Degree in Mechanical Engineering and am in the process of obtaining my Master's Degree, both of which require a keen eye to ensure technical reports and assignments are completed to the level of professionalism expected at an institute of higher education.
