After that, I did graduate work in history and theology at the University of Oxford and have recently been studying computer programming and IT at Ivy Tech.

I'm a graduate of St. Joseph High School in South Bend and then later of the University of Dallas where I majored in Philosophy. After that, I did graduate work in history and theology at the University of Oxford and have recently been studying computer programming and IT at Ivy Tech. My passions lie in theology, philosophy, linguistics, literature, and history.

I have over eight years of experience teaching and tutoring at the elementary, middle school, and high school levels and have taught history, theology/religion, science, Latin, grammar, literature, and mathematics. I love learning for the sake of learning and have a unique ability to see where it is that students are struggling and also what it is that needs to be said in order to overcome a lack of understanding.

I have a philosopher's heart, and this has led me to acquire a bachelor's degree in philosophy. Much of my work has centered around metaphysics, ethics, and epistemology, but I also have a clear understanding of philosophical theology, philosophy of religion, philosophical anthropology, as well as many other subjects. I also am adept at syllogisms and the contemporary symbolic logic calculus.

On a theological level, I'm a devout Catholic who studied theology at the University of Oxford. Before that I also took courses in these topics at the University of Dallas and in high school. I've taught theology professionally for 4 years and at my parish church for 2.5 years. I've studied and taught the scriptures of both the Old and New Testament in an academic setting and also privately.

I'm also a life long student of Latin both because it allows me to pursue my other academic passions and also because I love the language. I read and write the language and have experience teaching it both professionally and to my children. From an historical standpoint, my training is largely in the Classical Period and the time frames which directly follow it: from roughly 600 BC to 800 AD. However, I am versed in other eras as well.

Philosophy of ethics

THE BEST PROFESSOR, he is very clear and very easy to understand. He made me understand the small details that I couldn't understand it. There is a lot of tricks in philosophy and he made it easy to understand. I wish a lot instructors like him.

David, 1 lesson with Justin

Knowledgeable, flexible and extremely patient tutor

I am a remedial student in an advanced Latin course and Justin has greatly helped me in getting up to speed with my peers in translating the Caesar's Gallic War. He is an excellent teacher and is able to explain difficult concepts on the spot in different ways until I am able to understand. Justin has also been very flexible schedule wise frequently accommodating my frequent requests for schedule changes. His ability to put the text in context and draw from his large background knowledge has made the made learning Latin easily and enjoyable. I cannot recommend him enough.

Excellent communicator/broad knowledge

Justin was adaptable to changing schedules. He is clearly and expert and high level academic, but more importantly he seems to genuinely care about the success and learning of the students he works with. I would highly recommend Justin and am grateful for his support.
