About Justin

I graduated from Mansfield University in 2002, with a major in Criminal Justice and minor in Psychology. I then moved to Baltimore and worked with youthful offenders as a counselor until I took an interest in the school they attended, The New Directions Academy. I started working as a Special Education teacher there, covering multiple subjects, including math, science, language arts, and social studies. To further my own education I began taking Master's level courses in education toward my teaching certificate. After two years I left to work as a Psycho-Educator at the Villa Maria School, primarily teaching high school math. When I moved back to Pennsylvania with my family, I was fortunate to be hired by the Federal Bureau of Prisons and currently work as a GED teacher. In the past two months alone, since the beginning of 2013, I helped 8 students pass the GED. My various teaching experiences have helped me formulate simple approaches to math problems, and my experience with the GED program has familiarized me with the types of questions asked and different approaches to test preparation. I am used to working one-on-one with students to target their problem areas and devise solutions. I am looking forward to helping you in any way that I can.

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.

I started with them as a Correctional Officer and now I am a GED Teacher for the Bureau of Prisons.
