About Justin

Hello and good day to you. My name is Justin. I am a biology major at York College of Pennsylvania in my junior year. Biology is a fusion of algebra, chemistry, and physics applied to studying life. I have an extensive background in math and science which I rely on everyday of my life. I tutor elementary, middle, and high school students. I tutor college students and adult learners as well. I specialize in algebra, biology, chemistry, physics, and scientific writing. I'm more than proficient in the other major subjects as well. I have four years of experience, but I'm new to this website. The bulk of my previous experience centers around algebra 1, algebra 2, biology, chemistry, and physics at the middle and high school level.

I find tutoring to be a very enjoyable task, especially when that "a-ha moment" hits. Seeing success and confidence on a student's face makes the job worthwhile. I believe most students can find success with practice and patience. Learning to study is a skill. Practice makes perfect. When I tutor, I do not just give the answers. I believe students should show their reasoning. If they need a helping hand, then I'm there to guide. If they need instruction then I offer it. It is my goal to get them "to walk on their own." Once a student can prove that they understand a concept, then it is time to move on to the next concept.

My greatest success story is a student named Isaac. We began working together in the Fall of 2011 during his 9th grade year. Isaac needed to improve his study habits in algebra and science. He was not engaging with the instructor or the material. By reviewing previous material, teaching him how to take notes, how to consult the textbook, and how to ask questions when he was lost, I helped him to get back on track. He needed to become confident, and eventually he turned into an excellent and attentive student. His grades went up and I'm proud to say he was just accepted into Millersville University for the Fall of 2015.

I look forward to working with you. Please feel free to contact me, and we can discuss your situation. I'm sure we can find success for your student by working together.

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.

Organic Chemistry

Organic chemistry forms the foundation of my major, biology. Naming molecules, understanding the reactivity of function groups, and predicting the outcomes of reactions is a critical skill. I have passed both Organic 1 and 2. Both classes had lab. I'm more than qualified to assist students in organic chemistry.

Study Skills

Study skills is a critical area for any student. Developing good habits starts early. As a tutor I encourage students to prepare days ahead of an exam. Studying is a process that can be applied to almost any subject. Independent reading of the text combined with reviewing notes is a skill that lead to my success in high school and college. Study skills include organization, because a thorough review is not possible without every key piece of paper. I have tutored many middle school students who just needed help organizing their notebooks and their thoughts. I've helped high school students in the past by challenging them to read and then explain to me what they understood from the text. In conclusion, studying is a critical skill that I can teach to other students.
