I am a certified high school math teacher in NYC. I have over 7 years experience teaching and have been tutoring for over 10 years. I currently am the Lead Teacher at a School in Queens. I teach all the Common Core Math Classes. I am considered a Highly Effective teacher and I have over a 99% passing rate on all state exams! I make fun math, well at least I think I do.

Not only do I teach Common Core classes, I am a current Content Trainer for graders of the Regents! I show teachers how to grade the regents properly, so I know exactly what the graders are looking for!

If you are looking for a SAT or ACT Math tutor look no further either! I received an 800 on my math section and know the secrets. I know the new Common Core SAT test is coming in March, but don't worry, I can help!

My Speciality is Common Core Algebra, Geometry, and Algebra 2, but I also tutor 6 - 8th grade math, Pre-Calculus and Calculus.

I am available for regular weekly and biweekly sessions, one on one or in a group setting, and cram sessions right before an exam or regents. I will do one hour sessions, but I feel 90 minute sessions is the best route. I know what is on the exams, and my methods work. Contact me and we can get started right away.

When your child starts being tutored by me they can call or text me and I will help when I'm not with them. You can send me a picture of a problem and I will respond quickly and help as much as I can.

I am available every weekday, after 4:00pm until 10pm and on weekends, after 8am until 2pm.

If you have any questions feel free to ask!

Elementary Math,

Elementary Math

I started teaching in the middle school and know what students need to know to make it through high school math. The common core is very hard for students in the Elementary grades, but I know the essentials that are needed for students to excel as they move the high school math classes. The basics are not covered in depth and a lot of elementary teachers aren't currently skilled in the new Common Core. I am here to help!!

I am great with getting students to be organized and prepared for their weekly exams and also regents for their specific math class. I will put together a plan and make sure they achieve all their goals in any math related subject in middle school or high school without being stressed out. Students will be able to understand how to study and what is on the test in order to pass their class. I have been teaching for over 5 years and tutoring for 7 years in the following subjects, Algebra, Geometry, Algebra 2, and Trig. In addition to those classes I also tutor for ACT and SAT math prep.

Geometry,

Geometry

I currently teach all math classes in the high school, including Algebra, Geometry, Algebra 2, and have taught Pre-Calculus. 8th grade is where a lot of Geometry is lost, and this is why students struggle when they hit 10th grade. The basics need to be defined and basic angle and triangle rules need to be reinforced. The first module is constructions and without this background knowledge, students are lost, and its very hard for them to get back on track.

I am the lead teacher of mathematics at my school. I taught 7th grade and 8th grade in my earlier years which is considered Pre-Algebra.

Quite Pleased!

I am quite pleased with our first session- he & John hit it off and I feel very confident that he can help my son! He was able to determine fairly quickly John's areas of strength and where he struggles. I am very confident moving forward.

Excellent Tutor

Justin tutored my daughter in algebra last year and is now tutoring her in geometry. I highly recommend this tutor!

Marianne , 5 lessons with Justin

Excellent results!

My child had issues with the common core math regents this past school year. Justin was able to narrow down the issues very quickly and devised a strategy to focus on the deficient areas. After about 5 sessions Justin felt my kid would be ready for the summer retest exam and he was right! About a 20 point increase. Well worth the money...

Kevin, 5 lessons with Justin

He is the best!

I never thought that my son would be able to work on math for one and a half hours straight. The only reason it happened was because of Justin! He is the best!

Lisa, 3 lessons with Justin

After 1 session with Justin I'm doing better in my trig class

Justin is a very patient and easy to understand tutor, after 1 session I'm already doing better in the classroom and my test scores have increased. Thanks.

Tutored in Common Core Algebra 2 - It's been a pleasure so far, and it you will only get better! A's are in your near future!

Great tutoring, excellent session!

It was truly a great tutoring session, Justin pin-pointed every topic. I was able to understand each concept thoroughly and with the easiest explanations. If you are looking for an efficient tutor who is passionate about teaching math, Justin is the one. Based on previous experiences with other tutors, this has been the most satisfactory and efficient. Five stars for sure.

Tutored for the TEAS! It was my pleasure Dan, you will do great on your exam!

Nothing Short Of Amazing!

Mr. R was amazing! I never knew factoring could be so easy. He taught me about the discriminant, which makes figuring out which way is the best way to solve a quadratic. I actually enjoyed learning math for the first time! I'm ready for my test now!!
