About Justin

Raise your scores and your confidence with a Yale grad and former Yale prof.

I've helped hundreds of students kick the stress of the NEW SATs, the ACTs, and the Eng Lit and French SAT IIs and enjoy 30-50% score jumps. I've helped them get into their first choice colleges like Yale, NYU, and Vanderbilt.

I've tutored with some of the most elite and selective companies in NYC and now am taking on clients of my own. I have tutored the SAT privately to top NYC students from schools such as Dalton, Brearly, and Calhoun, working closely in their homes. I know what works, including for the NEW SAT, which I can happily guide you through. My students have enjoyed 20-40% point increases, even higher, with several perfect scorers. I also have experience preparing middle school students for the SHSAT, ISEE and COOP exams.

At College Prep 360 where my position recently ended, I worked one-on-one with high school students through all phases of the college application process, from the initial list to fielding acceptances (Yale and Vanderbilt to name recent ones).

Let me help you take the stress out of the process and put confidence and fun in its place, borrowing from my background in theater (playwright). I have over 10 years' experience as an educator and truly value the student-teacher relationship. I adapt my approach to each individual student based on his or her interests, strengths and personality.

I hold a Master's in dramatic literature from the Sorbonne (mention tres bien, or magna cum laude) and an MFA in playwriting from Yale. I have taught writing or language at Yale University, Wesleyan University, the Sorbonne, in high schools and privately throughout New York City with all ages. I am the 2015 JM Kaplan Fund commissioned writer and a recipient of the Eugene O'Neill scholarship at Yale.

As a French tutor, my students have gone on to score 5 on the French AP exam, enjoy 500 point jumps on the French SAT subject test and even major in French at university. I draw on my work with Language Learning Innovations where I designed an introduction to French course (Frenchpod101) that is used across the planet. I also draw on my background as a French to English translator of plays, film scripts and novels such as the play The Chairs by Eugene Ionesco. I am confident teaching students from novice speakers to advanced literary aspirants.

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.

College Counseling

I worked for a college prep company as a college essay and application consultant for one year. I have helped New York City high school students get into major colleges, including Yale, Vanderbilt, NYU, Boston College and Villanova. Before then, I partnered with an online organization and worked as an independent college admissions consultant helping many under privileged high school students with their admissions process.

COOP/HSPT

I have tutored several middle school students on this highly competitive exam. Some have gone on to score in the 90th percentile. One was admitted to Regis private school in Manhattan.

French

As a French tutor, I draw on my bilingual status and background as a graduate of the Sorbonne. My middle school students have integrated into bilingual schools and my high school students have gone on to score 5 on the French AP exam, enjoy 500 point jumps on the French SAT subject test and even major in French at university. I draw on my work with Language Learning Innovations where I designed an introduction to French course (Frenchpod101) that is used across the planet. I also draw on my background as a French to English translator of plays, film scripts and novels such as the play The Chairs by Eugene Ionesco. I am confident teaching students from novice speakers to advanced literary aspirants.

ISEE

I tutor many middle school students on the private school entrance exams. I have successfully supported students to score in the 90th percentile on the ISEE and similar exams. The approach to test prep for middle schoolers is not the same as for high school juniors and seniors and I have seen great results from my work with my middle schoolers.

Theatre

I am a professional playwright who has written 20 plays. I have an MFA in playwriting from Yale and an MA theater studies from the Sorbonne. I have taught playwriting at Yale, Wesleyan and in high schools.

Great temperament and vibe! — I love Justin's artistic vibe. I don't think I would ever be able to find another tutor like him. He is also very knowledgeable in the important SAT subjects, so don't hesitate to hire him! ...
