About Justin


Bio

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.

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.

Computer

C,

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++,

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,

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 Master's Degree in Computer Science and have tutored several students in programming. I am fluent in the following languages: C, C++, Java, Python, JavaScript, HTML, and CSS.
Computer Science,

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.
Java,

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

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

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

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.
HTML, SQL

Fast, smart, and easy to work with

Justin was a great tutor. I had an important project that I needed to get done within a small amount of time. We got it done, he taught me along the way, and we had fun.

Kyle, 1 lesson with Justin

Justin is awesome, explain concepts very clear.

Show to him my advance about a vector implementation and he explain clear the points that I need to understand to continue with the project. Discuss about inheritance and virtual functions. I will recommend him.

Jose, 11 lessons with Justin

Knows his stuff and how to teach it

I have been working with Justin for about 6 weeks and covered nearly every data structure with him. I can attest to his accountability, knowledge, and preparedness. Justin was easy to communicate with and very flexible as to scheduling meetings. Though his knowledge far exceeded that of my needs, he was very patient and explained topics through diagrams or other simplistic examples. Justin kept tabs on the topics I wished to cover. While the direction of each meeting was left up to me, he prepared questions and examples to supplement each topic. After a meeting, he would assemble relevant notes and send me followup questions if I wanted to practice more. Justin helped me out tremendously. He has filled in many of the gaps between courses and clarified programming fundamentals. More importantly, he has helped me write more clean, coherent, and concise code. My Thanks much, Justin!

Extremely Knowledgeable, Relatable, and Patient

Justin was an amazing tutor for my Data Structures course, and I could not have done nearly as well without him! Since Justin currently works as a computer scientist at the highest level, he is able to apply the lessons to real-world applications. He is knowledgeable in all the best practices and I believe that I am a much better programmer because of him. Thank you very much Justin, I truly appreciate your help.

Jake, 30 lessons with Justin

Thank you so much!!!

You have helped me work through my very difficult course this semester. I could not have done it without you!!

Reena, 63 lessons with Justin

Helpful tutoring

Justin provides real world context to math problems, and encourages thinking through problems logically in parallel with doing the calculations.

Edith, 16 lessons with Justin

Knowledgeable and very helpful

Justin has really helped me on the math section for the SAT. He is a math-wiz who knows multiple different techniques to solve problems. In addition, he explains topics well and gives me a lot of practice related to a certain math topics that I've struggled with.

Chandani , 20 lessons with Justin

Very Knowledgeable.

We worked on HTML, CSS, JavaScript, and jQuery. He knows the topics very well. He prepared the material before the class schedule, and that made everything go smoother in my opinion. He always asks if I have anymore problems that he could help with.

Bo, 3 lessons with Justin

Wonderful tutor!

Justin tutored my son for the past year In AP calculus AB. He was clear and was able to explain the concepts in a clear fashion. He also helped him prepare for the AP exam. There is no way that my son could have mastered this material without Justin's help. I highly recommend him as a tutor.
