About Justine

I have been tutoring for the last ten years and truly believe that education is the key to opening up opportunities in the future. I love finding new and creative ways to explain concepts to students, challenging them while at the same time creating a fun learning environment that inspires them to engage and thus better retain what they are learning. I specialize in tutoring reading and writing, although I also tutor math and history.

I first began teaching and tutoring in high school, working with African refugees to help them catch up with the American curriculum. This then brought me to Ghana and Rwanda, where I taught in rural schools for some months. These experiences helped me to expand the way in which I teach, as a "learning by doing" model was most applicable. When students are able to engage in the learning environment, explore and question, then real learning takes place that will last beyond the next test or exam. I give homework for further practice after each session, and assess the student's progress throughout to ensure that I am always considering how best to meet the needs of the student.

I scored above the 90th percentile on all aspects of the ACT, but the key to the math section is knowing how to systematically approach each question and having a solid foundational understanding of the concepts that will be tested. By going through this process with students, I am able to provide them with the confidence and skills to succeed on the ACT.

I have always loved reading and writing, and this is my favorite subject to tutor. Depending on the needs of the student, I am able to come up with a specific program that will further their reading and writing capabilities in a fun and engaging way. Using topics of interest to the student, we explore concepts such as grammar, writing styles, research papers, etc. in a way that is exciting for them.

One of the keys to success when it comes to American History is having a solid study program to breakdown all the information and memorize and retain it in a sustainable way. By helping students to come up with ways to remember historical facts, creating fun and engaging study techniques, and applying the knowledge in a contemporary and practical way I am able to get students to not only see the importance of history, but to excel in the class as well.

I am available most week-day evenings and weekends, and can travel to students as long as you are reachable by public transportation. I can also do online tutoring sessions. Please reach out if you need some tutoring help or have any questions!
