Bio

Hello, everybody, thank you for taking the time to read this. I am extremely passionate about teaching others, as well as learning from them in any way possible.

I was salutatorian in my high school class and an Honors student at the University of North Georgia, majoring in Spanish with a minor in French, where I earned a 4.0 GPA. I would say I am more than capable in a variety of disciplines, mainly the humanities such as English or History.

Hello, everybody, thank you for taking the time to read this. I am extremely passionate about teaching others, as well as learning from them in any way possible.

I was salutatorian in my high school class and an Honors student at the University of North Georgia, majoring in Spanish with a minor in French, where I earned a 4.0 GPA. I would say I am more than capable in a variety of disciplines, mainly the humanities such as English or History.

I lived in South America for over 2 years and improved my Spanish greatly. I taught English to high school students in Colombia for 5 months and then taught Business English in Ecuador for almost 2 years. During this time, I also worked as a private English tutor. I am however, currently back in the States, ready to spread some Spanish knowledge!

In regards to foreign languages, I make sure the pupil is able to convey what he or she wants to without any sacrifice of meaning; that is to say, I do not necessarily require that they memorize every single grammatical rule in the book, though I do want them to understand major concepts such as preterite vs imperfect, indicative vs subjunctive, choice of prepositions, etc. I also find the use of accents (especially in Spanish) an overlooked concept, as the accent has the potential to change the word and verb tense entirely.

In addition, I have helped many classmates throughout the years, whether it be in middle school, high school or college, sometimes not even being in the same class as them. In secondary as well as post-secondary education, I have revised a plethora of English papers, providing alternative ways to get points across, as well as revising syntax, word choice, or overall structure of students' papers. I also advise students in regards to formatting (such as MLA vs APA vs Chicago, etc.) I also make a habit of explaining a topic in a variety of different manners to ensure that the student understands at least one way, whether this be a historical event such as American trustbusting in the early twentieth century

Great session!

My son is a sophomore in college and his school decided to do digital learning for the fall. Spanish online has proven to be a challenge for him. After his first session with Justin he feels like he has a better understanding of the material and we are already scheduling another session!

Patient tutor

This was our first lesson and we will continue to use Justin. My daughter said he was extremely patient and knowledgeable. He took his time and didn't have a issue going over recently reviewed words.
