About Justin

I just finished my 2nd year as an intervention specialist at Indian Lake Elementary. I work with 3rd grade students that struggle in the areas of math and language arts. We work on strategies to help them move towards being successful independently. This school year, I was tutoring 5 times a week after school in both math and language arts. I tutored both 3rd and 4th graders.

Before I was a teacher, I was studying to become one at Bowling Green State University. While there, I accumulated 620 hours of in classroom experience with students ranging from kindergarten age to 8th graders.

I love what I do and think my purpose is to make learning fun for all learners, whether struggling or gifted. I just love seeing children enjoy learning! I use stories and word problems that are interesting, technology (computers, iPads, etc.), and interactive activities to ensure that kiddos are engaged in learning.

I have been co-teaching math in the general education setting for the past two years. During that time, I have worked with 3 different teachers and learned lots of great strategies to help students be successful. I also have spent lots of time with struggling learners working on improving math skills.

I have been co-teaching English language arts in the general education setting for the past two years. During that time, I have worked with 3 different teachers and learned lots of great strategies to help students be successful. I also have spent lots of time with struggling learners working on improving reading fluency and comprehension skills.

I have successfully completed Orton Gillingham training, a proven phonics program to help struggling readers improve not only their phonics skills, but spelling, fluency, and comprehension skills as well.

Through co-teaching reading and spelling and completing Orton Gillingham training, I have learned and used lots of great strategies for students to become successful spellers.

Please feel free to contact me if you have any further questions! I look forward to helping your kiddo be successful for the upcoming school year!

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.

Phonics

I successfully completed Orton-Gillingham training 2 years ago and use it in my classroom. OG is a multi-sensory approach to teaching phonics in a way that improves not only phonics skills, but spelling, reading fluency, and reading comprehension skills, too. It has proven to be successful in my classroom.
