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

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.

Awesome tutor

Mr. Justin is an amazing tutor who explains each and every part of a question thoroughly and thoughtfully without leaving out a single detail. My first lesson passed by extremely quickly thanks to his ability to make them interesting, and I am looking forward to my next lesson! James Kim

Very helpful and accommodating

Justin was very accommodating with last minute request to help my son Tyler review for an exam for AP World Modern History. He explained Unit 3 and 4 in a concise manner and was able to help him practice answering stimulus-based questions.

Outstanding tutor!

I just started my first couple of sessions with Mr. Brown for APWH, and I can already tell he is a great tutor. Mr. Brown is the funniest and most lighthearted tutor. He's great at doing his job as he teaches and guides you through the content you need help with. He makes the time enjoyable while making sure that you have a better understanding of the subject. I've had my fair share of tutoring experiences and Mr. Brown is probably the best!

Awesome tutor

Justin tutored my daughther on AP World History (Modern). He was awesome, he is one of those tutors that transpires mastery when explaining. He seemed to know everything from the period of history being explored in the session and he was able to explain it in a way that my daughter understood. She has been having problems with AP World History and her confidence was extremely down but I could see her confidence level improved after just one lesson. She loved it.

Excellent tutor so far.

I'm very happy with his skills as an educator. He seems like not only a good lawyer, and teacher, but a genuinely good man. He is a calm and patient educator who really takes the time to explain things.

Patient Person

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.
