About Justin

Hello students and parents,

My name is Justin, and I am a software engineer at Google in NYC. In my spare time, I do private tutoring with a specialization in math, computer science, and SAT/ACT prep. I enjoy working with students and sharing my passion for math & CS. It is always my goal to not only help students understand the concepts, but also to make things fun by explaining real life applications.

I received a Master's degree in Computer Science from Drexel University, where I also worked as a teaching assistant for such courses as Data Structures and Advanced Programming Techniques. Prior to that, I did my Bachelor's in Software Engineering with a concentration in Applied Mathematics at Johnson & Wales University.

I have several years of experience working with students on all sections of the SAT and ACT as well as math subjects such as algebra, trigonometry, geometry, and calculus. In addition I have tutored students for several computer science related courses, including all the major programming languages (C, C++, Java, Python, VB, etc).

I am located in Harrison, NJ and am willing to work with students within a 30 minute drive or in NYC. I am also available for online tutoring. I am available most evenings as well as weekends.

One of the biggest benefits of working with me is that at age 24, I am younger than most tutors. I have been told by numerous parents that their children feel more comfortable working with me since I am closer in age to them. Creating a comfortable setting is essential for learning to take place!

In addition, I am a classically trained chef! I work as a personal chef offering cooking lessons, catering, and custom meal prep.

Looking forward to working with you.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

C

The C programming language is widely used and is traditionally the first language taught to students. As a software engineer, I am well versed in various computer programming concepts and am fluent in C. I have written hundreds of programs in C both for school and in the workplace.

C++

Building off the foundations of C, C++ allows the programmer to create classes that model real life objects. Essential for game development, an object-oriented approach gives your virtual creations the functionality to act like living, breathing organisms! I can teach you how to use C++ to design games and simulations.

Computer Programming

Learning to program is a great skill if you are looking to enter the computer science field, but it is usually not taught in schools. As a private tutor, I can teach you to program! I have a Bachelor's Degree in Software Engineering and have tutored several students in programming. I am fluent in the following languages: C, C++, Java, Python, Ruby, SQL, Visual Basic. I have a working knowledge of: HTML, CSS, JavaScript, Rails, PHP.

Computer Science

Computer Science is a rapidly growing field, but unfortunately many students don't have the opportunity to take CS courses before college. As a software engineer, I can bring the enrichment of CS into your home through private tutoring. I have tutored students in everything from basic algorithms to complex distributed systems. I teach CS either in-person or online via a screen-sharing platform so that the student always has control of the mouse and keyboard.

Cooking

As a personal chef, I offer cooking lessons, catering, and custom meal prep through my own business. I attended culinary school at Johnson & Wales University and have worked in numerous foodservice settings. I emphasize techniques that can be used in a variety of recipes.

Discrete Math

Discrete math includes a wide variety of mathematical topics and is utilized heavily in computer science. I have taken discrete math at the college level and am very familiar with set theory, sequences, matrices, and graph theory.

Java

Java is easily my favorite programming language. It has the syntax and object-oriented functionality of C++ but has additional imports to facilitate the development of more advanced programs. Java is my language of choice for client/server applications as well as Graphical User Interface (GUI) applications. I am an avid Java programmer and can teach you how to utilize this in-demand language.

JavaScript

JavaScript allows the programmer to provide dynamic content over the web. It is a relatively straightforward language and can easily be embedded into HTML code. Let me teach you how to use JavaScript to add interactive features to your website.

Python

Python is a high-level programming language, meaning it is easier to learn since its syntax is closer to English. It is more elegant than a traditional language like C, as programs that span hundreds of lines in C can often be condensed to a few dozen lines in Python. One of Python's biggest uses is data processing. I am fluent in Python and can teach you how to use this powerful language.

Visual Basic

Visual Basic is great for designing Windows Forms. I have written dozens of VB programs including a fully functional payroll application which calculates and stores employee pay and taxes. I can teach you how to design and program forms of your own in VB.
