I am a Stanford PhD student in an interdisciplinary chemical biology program, and a graduate of the University of Chicago with a B.S. in Biochemistry and a Master of Science in Chemistry, concentrating in Chemical Biology. I have a passion for math and sciences, particularly chemistry and biology, and love sharing this passion with others. I also currently work in a chemical biology lab here at Stanford, which focuses on understanding the role of the carbohydrate protein modifications in order to develop novel therapeutics, including in cancer and infectious disease.

I have eight years of tutoring experience during both high school and college in math, chemistry, biology, physics, and Spanish. I have always found that one of the most important aspects of tutoring is to understand the specific ways that an individual student learns best, which can be difficult for a teacher in a classroom setting. I believe I have greatly developed this skill during my tutoring in high school and have found it to be one of the most rewarding parts of the experience. Additionally, I am extroverted, friendly, and patient, and I am receptive to the needs of each student. Alongside tutoring, I have served as a Teaching Assistant (TA) in chemistry courses at the University of Chicago and Stanford.

I have completed coursework in mathematics up through complex analysis, including calculus of one and several variables and differential equations. With calculus in particular, I have a talent for explaining the math conceptually, which is often the biggest frustration for students studying calculus - beyond that, much of the math builds on students' foundations in algebra. Once, however, the concepts behind calculus make sense, it can become a profound and enjoyable form of math.

I have always had a passion for science, and I have always been able to impart this on others. I have studied three years of physics, including AP Physics C and a semester at Princeton University during high school. I have also completed AP Chemistry and Biology

Knowledgeable and Patient Tutor

Justin was a knowledgeable tutor that help my daughter with her last few weeks of Chemistry honors. He had the patience to breakdown the concepts so that she could apply them to her final. We will definitely reach out to have him help us again.

Michelle, 1 lesson with Justin

Physics

Justin is amazingly patient, and extremely knowledgeable. My son said he's interactive, open to questions, explains the material and wants you to understand what he's teaching.

Jackie, 1 lesson with Justin

Great tutor

Justin was great! He was very patient and explained everything thoroughly. He explained the importance of unit conversions and a good way to make it a less confusing process.

Denisse, 1 lesson with Justin

Excellent tutoring skills. Knowledgeable, patient.

Justin did a fantastic job of explaining physics concepts and provided careful and thorough explanations to problems. He also gave helpful tips to problem solving and understanding of the material.

Maria, 20 lessons with Justin

Good times!

Picked up some valuable tips and the sort of broad, comprehensive approach I was looking for. Hopefully we'll find some trick to crack these ridiculous problems tomorrow. (I'm glad someone way better at math also thinks these are hard).
