About Justin

I have taught for over a decade and have teaching experience both in the United States and abroad. I lived for 6 years in Seoul, South Korea and then another year and a half in London, England. After returning to the United States, I completed my Master's Degree in Teaching, Learning and Curriculum. I currently work with at-risk and special needs students in a program designed to meet their unique needs.

I understand that there are variety of factors that can contribute to a student struggling in school. First and foremost, I like to identify a way to make learning meaningful but also enjoyable and engaging. For many student's this can be as simple as meeting them at their level with material and activities that align with their interests. I very much enjoy the moment that the light goes on in a student's head and they "get it" and everything starts falling into place for them. For some students who are avoid reading this can be as simple as finding something they will enjoy reading, such as a graphic novel, and starting from there. Student's who enjoy their learning will retain and achieve more.

I have a degree in English and have worked both as a special educator and English teacher for at-risk and special needs youth. This means I am very experience working with student's who may not be achieving on the level of their peers or may need alternative ways in order to engage them in their own learning.

If you would like help with improving your ability with the written word or if you are some one who needs help with reading and comprehension, I would encourage you to contact me.
