About Justin

Hello!

As a cyber school teacher, I feel as if I am exceptionally qualified to assist your son or daughter improve scores in social studies or hone their writing skills.

I spend my days working with students, ranging in age from 6th grade to 12th grade, on an individual basis. Students have told me that I am rather masterful in teaching note taking, academic reading skills, drafting, proofreading, and academic writing through my social studies curriculum.

I love to make use of the resources a student brings with them--if a student is working on a particular topic in school, I will focus on that topic in my lessons.

I firmly believe in the utility of graphic organizers in the writing process. Many students have even commented that my prewrite tricks help them take notes in the academic realm.

As an added bonus, I possess a degree in history from a private university in addition to my teaching certification. This means that in order to graduate, I had to compose an original thesis. I am no stranger to writing. If that wasn't enough, I am also a trained instructional technology specialist, meaning I can help your student succeed on any platform they need.

Above all else, I'm approachable, friendly, and experienced in helping students of all ability levels succeed. You students will enjoy their time in tutoring. Learning is part of a successful life--never a chore.

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.

Social Studies

I am a certified 7-12 Social Studies teacher in the state of Pennsylvania. I also possess a degree in history.

Study Skills

I am a certified teacher that currently practices in a cyber school environment. My day is centered on helping students, who are often at-risk, succeed in a self-guided environment. A typical session will include reviewing how to "gut" the reading material to extract essential information, a note-taking activity, and mnemonics. Every student learns differently, and my background allows me to quickly and efficiently note a student's needs.
