Bio

I received a B.A. in History from Loyola University in New Orleans. I taught in both college and secondary schools, and then attended law school at Tulane University. My teaching experience includes teaching college classes at Xavier University of New Orleans and at the University of New Orleans.

I received a B.A. in History from Loyola University in New Orleans. I taught in both college and secondary schools, and then attended law school at Tulane University. My teaching experience includes teaching college classes at Xavier University of New Orleans and at the University of New Orleans. I then taught history for eight years, including seven years at Isidore Newman school. Newman is one of the best schools in the country and annually places highly in the number of National Merit Scholars it produces. Altogether, I taught for ten years, and practiced law for about twenty years.

My wife and I moved to Florida after Hurricane Katrina destroyed our home in New Orleans. I no longer practice law, but have always enjoyed teaching and would like to help anyone in need of a tutor. I am proficient in a number of subjects. These include AP U.S. History, AP World History, AP English, Public Speaking, Writing, and Law. I specialize in tutoring students for all of the English portions of the SAT, ACT, and GRE. I also tutor for the LSAT. I teach the subject-matter for standardized tests, as well as test-taking techniques to help students maximize their scores. I also specialize in tutoring for AP U.S History and AP World History. During my career, I've coached golf and football.

I believe in identifying a student's strengths as well as weaknesses, and use the former to improve the latter. I try to keep the subject being taught both lively and entertaining, and to make learning a positive experience. Most of all, I care about my students and will always do my best to help them succeed.

Subjects

Business

Criminal Justice,

Criminal Justice

While in law school, I took numerous courses in criminal law. As an attorney, criminal defense was one of my primary specializations. This required a hands-on knowledge of police methods and procedures. During my legal career, I represented clients charged with offenses ranging anywhere from murder to traffic offenses. I engaged in plea bargaining in many cases when it was advantageous to my client. I also took many cases to trial (both by jury and by judge) and had a very high success rate when doing so.
Public Speaking,

Public Speaking

I have a B.A. in History, a M.A. in Drama & Communications, and a J.D. As a teenager, I acted as the lead in numerous plays and skits. Upon graduation, I taught for ten years (including speech at Xavier University) and was the director of the Assembly Committee at Isidore Newman school in New Orleans. As such, I was responsible for programs and entertainment for over 600 students approximately six times a year. I acted as the master-of-ceremonies on all assemblies. I then got my J.D. and practiced law for 18 years, arguing many cases before juries with a high success rate (over 90%). I also was a band member and lead singer for a popular rock band in New Orleans, and have played music before large audiences many times. All of these prior activities have given me much experience in getting ideas over to an audience, and in public speaking in general. Over the years, I have learned many techniques that benefit anyone interested in public speaking. I would love to share that knowledge.

Justin is an amazing teacher, last week was my first session with him and I am a very slow learner that is preparing for the LSAT and he is very patient. I am so excited for the next session.

Great teacher.

My son had a lesson with Justin and he was very happy. We have tried finding a tutor to help my son improve his test scores and are very grateful we found Justin. My son is very excited to work with him and prepare for his upcoming test.

Awesome Tutor

Justin helped me for 5 months as I prepared to take the LSAT, he was an engaging tutor that thoroughly explained the thought process and how to attack each section of the LSAT. His method of teaching helped me more clearly understand the reasoning process for the various sections. I highly recommend Justin, as he helped me build my confidence in a positive and up beat manner to master the LSAT. He genuinely cares about his students and will do anything for them to succeed. His engaging and humorous personality eased the stress that any kind of standardized test can create, especially the LSAT.

Knowledgeable and helpful

Very knowledgeable and helpful. My son is benefiting from the lessons. I like that he gave my son essays as homework. Then go through it during the tutorial session.

Great Tutor

I studied LSAT material with Justin because I was struggling with consistency on LR questions. Justin is patient and motivational. His approach is based on how you best learn and then coming up with a process for you. As your proficiency increases, so does your speed. I would recommend him to anyone wanting to conquer the LSAT.
