About Justin

How's it going?

My name is Justin and I have been a history teacher for nearly 10 years and I absolutely love it. Not only am I a history teacher and tutor, but I am also a history buff. I knew that from the time that I was in elementary school that I was going to do something with history as a career....and I have. I received my BA in History from UC Santa Barbara and then continued my education at Pepperdine where I received my MA in Education, and I have been teaching ever since.

I have taught nearly every course available in the history curriculum of a high school (that includes various levels of Advanced Placement, Honors and "college prep"). As I am both a teacher and a tutor, I have, and use, the textbooks and materials from my classes in my sessions. Like my teaching, I like to vary my tutoring styles so that my students can learn the information in a way that will best help them retain the information and succeed in their classes.

Besides history, I am also available to tutor some English and grammar and proofreading. I also like to help my students organize and be prepared for class on a daily basis.

Nice to meet you all.

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.

American History

I have been teaching American History for years, as it is one of two classes that I have taught exclusively in all of my years in the classroom (the other being Government/Economics). I also teach AP U.S. History and had my school's highest pass rate this past year. I help my students--both in class and in a tutoring session--succeed on the exam. I also became an AP Exam rater this past year, so I know what students need to do to be successful on their exams.

Government & Politics

I have been teaching Government--and have taught AP Government--for many years, as it is one of two classes that I have taught exclusively in all of my years in the classroom (the other being U.S. History). I have the experience needed to help students succeed in both levels of this class. I'd like to think that I am an expert in this subject and am willing to help students succeed in this class.

Social Studies

I have been teaching social studies, at all levels and classes -- grades 6-12 -- for nearly 10 years. Prior to that, I was a History major in college. I have tutored students and teachers to help prepare for AP exams and for the exam that teachers take in order to be credentialed to teach their subject.
