About Justin

Hello, prospective students and parents! I am a secondary science teacher with a bachelor's degree in Biology / Zoology and an Indiana secondary teacher's license in Life Sciences. I have taught Biology and Honors Biology for four years, and Environmental Science for one year. I have been the primary individual responsible for restructuring the biology curriculum at my school in accordance with the Indiana state standards. I have also been a primary leader in developing the "Response to Intervention" protocol at my school, which identifies students with academic or social needs, and develops strategies to help them reach their goals. I have extensive experience in biology, genetics, ecology, and biochemistry, and have also had a considerable amount of education in the fields of chemistry, anatomy and physiology, and biostatistics.

I prefer to act as a guide for my students, rather than an instructor. I find that students often know more than they think they do, but they are many times just intimidated to make a "guess" and end up being wrong. However, it is my firm belief that the only way we learn is to make mistakes, and I therefore ask students many leading questions to help them discover the right answers on their own. I feel it is only a hindrance to "give" students information, when they will retain the knowledge so much more permanently if they are allowed the opportunity to grasp the concepts on their own. Some students find my "answering a question with a question" teaching method aggravating, but I assure you that you will find this strategy much more engaging and rewarding in the end.

I look forward to working with you, and wish you the very best in your academic expeditions!
