About Justine

I consider myself not only a teacher, but also a learner. A good teacher must acknowledge that learning is a continual process. As your teacher, I will learn about you, your needs, and the best way to help you reach your goals. Because I have taught students ages 5 - 65, I know that students learn differently and I will do my best to find the strategy that works for you.

I have a Master's degree in teaching English to speakers of other languages. Although I am not fluent in other languages, I understand how languages work and I love working with people from different cultures. In addition, I love working with young children and have several years of experience tutor young children in reading and writing.

I am flexible with time, and can meet you at a convenient and comfortable location (coffee shop, library, home, etc.). I look forward to meeting you and helping you succeed!

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.

ESL/ESOL

I have a Master's Degree in Teaching English to Students who speak Other Languages (TESOL). I have worked full time as an ESL teacher for the past 4 years. I have experience tutoring ESL students of all ages over the past 4 years as well.

Reading

Throughout college I worked as a reading tutor for students in a variety of elementary schools. Through my Master's program I learned more techniques for teaching reading to students of all ages. We will start with what you know, and gradually work to increase your fluency and accuracy in reading.

Writing

I have a wide range of experience in different types of writing. In college, I majored in English and Communications. In my English classes, I focused on creative writing while in my Communication classes I focused on journalism.
