About Justin


Bio

I am a firm believer in individualized learning styles, and the underlying premise that no subject is inherently difficult, so long as it is presented in a digestible way. This means recognizing and offering multiple approaches to problem-solving. I am deeply passionate about the process of learning, and find it extremely personally fulfilling to help others achieve confidence and awareness of their own academic potential.

I am a firm believer in individualized learning styles, and the underlying premise that no subject is inherently difficult, so long as it is presented in a digestible way. This means recognizing and offering multiple approaches to problem-solving. I am deeply passionate about the process of learning, and find it extremely personally fulfilling to help others achieve confidence and awareness of their own academic potential.

My name is Justin, and I am a graduate of New Mexico State University, where I earned a bachelor's degree in chemistry, along with minors in biochemistry and biology. The last two years of my undergraduate career, I worked as a laboratory research assistant, and also as a Supplemental Instruction Facilitator. Supplemental Instruction (SI) is an internationally recognized academic support program that offers regularly scheduled study for difficult core courses. Sessions are targeted towards improving student grades and understanding, while increasing enrollment, and reducing attrition.

As a facilitator, I instructed up to forty students, maintained an academic grade book, and was required to uphold the same teaching protocol as faculty. I attended lectures with the students to take notes, model good student behavior, and prepare tailored curricula for my own classroom sessions. In addition, I identified and implemented various learning styles, created lesson plans, worksheets, and lectures, and developed collaborative group activities. I have been a facilitator for General Chemistry I, General Chemistry II, and Organic Chemistry I. Many students stayed with me through this sequence.

The foundation of my tutoring philosophy was established through involvement with the SI program, and has been refined over time. I believe in an interactive approach that relies on asking the appropriate questions to lead the student to the answer gradually, by first connecting concepts, and then relying on the student to explain a stepwise solution to me. I have applied this approach effectively and pragmatically to instruct multiple high school and college students across a variety of academic disciplines.

CV available upon request, along with multiple university faculty, student, and parental references. I promise to respond quickly to any questions or comments you have, so please do not hesitate. Thank you for your consideration!

Great

Justin has been absolutely amazing tutoring my son in Biology. He was able to schedule a session very last minute when I learned of an exam and my son is actually able to articulate concepts they discussed which is a first for him. He is also more confident answering questions in class now as well.

Dalaise, 9 lessons with Justin

Knowledgeable, prompt and so kind, responsive and prompt

Tremendous help with high school genetics/complicated problems. Answers were submitted fast and availability by phone tutoring as well. My son understood everything he taught him.

Victoria, 2 lessons with Justin

Very quick and knowledgeable

Justin made sure everything was organized so I could understand. He knew everything about the problems and was very quick to explain everything I needed to know to understand.

Demystifies Chemistry!

My children loved working with Justin. Neither of my kids particularly likes chemistry but Justin had a way of making the subject more accessible and actually enjoyable by de-mystifying the content in simple to understand language. He was knowledgeable, clear, good humored, responsive, reliable, and flexible on tutoring times including making time during a vacation to Europe for my son. I highly recommend Justin.

Brian, 33 lessons with Justin

Very thorough and engaging

Justin is very patient and thorough. This is my son's first lesson with him and I saw that my son was interested and engaged. I look forward to seeing my son excel and become more confident in Alegbra.

Rocio , 20 lessons with Justin

Understanding

Justin was able to take content I didn't understand and reformat it and a way that was easy to learn.

Aaron, 13 lessons with Justin

Extremely knowledgeable, thorough, and patient

Justin has been great with my middle schooler. He is very attentive and addresses all homework issues promptly. His response time is excellent. He continues to take it to the next level with explanations and challenges my son to "teach" concepts reviewed back to him!

Janet, 26 lessons with Justin

Great Tutor

My son has always struggled with math. We started working with Justin during the summer to try and get ahead. The online tutoring has worked out great. Justin has lessons planned out and quizzed him to make sure he understood the information. My son has gone from having a "D" grade to a B+ in Geometry.

Shanette, 87 lessons with Justin

Thorough and Prepared Tutor

Justin is a wonderful tutor. He is always prepared, thorough and able to communicate the subject in a manner in which kids understand. Both of my children have benefited from his help. We are very thankful for having found such a terrific tutor.
