About Justin


Bio

I am a firm believer in individualized learning styles, and the underlying premise that no subject is inherently difficult, so long as it is presented in a digestible way. This means recognizing and offering multiple approaches to problem-solving. I am deeply passionate about the process of learning, and find it extremely personally fulfilling to help others achieve confidence and awareness of their own academic potential.

I am a firm believer in individualized learning styles, and the underlying premise that no subject is inherently difficult, so long as it is presented in a digestible way. This means recognizing and offering multiple approaches to problem-solving. I am deeply passionate about the process of learning, and find it extremely personally fulfilling to help others achieve confidence and awareness of their own academic potential.

My name is Justin, and I am a graduate of New Mexico State University, where I earned a bachelor's degree in chemistry, along with minors in biochemistry and biology. The last two years of my undergraduate career, I worked as a laboratory research assistant, and also as a Supplemental Instruction Facilitator. Supplemental Instruction (SI) is an internationally recognized academic support program that offers regularly scheduled study for difficult core courses. Sessions are targeted towards improving student grades and understanding, while increasing enrollment, and reducing attrition.

As a facilitator, I instructed up to forty students, maintained an academic grade book, and was required to uphold the same teaching protocol as faculty. I attended lectures with the students to take notes, model good student behavior, and prepare tailored curricula for my own classroom sessions. In addition, I identified and implemented various learning styles, created lesson plans, worksheets, and lectures, and developed collaborative group activities. I have been a facilitator for General Chemistry I, General Chemistry II, and Organic Chemistry I. Many students stayed with me through this sequence.

The foundation of my tutoring philosophy was established through involvement with the SI program, and has been refined over time. I believe in an interactive approach that relies on asking the appropriate questions to lead the student to the answer gradually, by first connecting concepts, and then relying on the student to explain a stepwise solution to me. I have applied this approach effectively and pragmatically to instruct multiple high school and college students across a variety of academic disciplines.

Great session precalc

Thanks Justin for your patient help

Very Knowledgeable and Helpful

I was really struggling with several chemistry concepts and Justin was able to break them down for me in a manner that was very understandable. I would strongly recommend Justin to anyone considering a tutor.

Most patient, dedicated and well-rounded tutor.

Justin has taught me chemistry for over a year now. I’ve never had such a great tutor. He is extremely patient and makes sure that I understand. Since I started tutoring with him I have definitely seen improvement in my studying habits as well. I highly recommend him!

Great with Techniques to Learn Concepts Thoroughly

Justin had great material that he prepared for me to detail the reactions of carboxylic acids and their derivatives. He used more basic organic chemistry concepts to explain the further detail of the advanced chapters in my textbook. He even demanded to take some time off the charge for the lesson while he took a little bit of time to pull up documents and draw structures. Friendly knowledgeable tutor great for Ochem.

Excellent teacher, Very professional

My daughter struggled with some SAT chemistry material and Justin was able to address every single question with competence. Having lessons with Justin was an amazing investment!

Paola, 3 lessons with Justin

helpful

Used a lot of visual images to clarify concepts. Also showed how to use the equations and which equations should be used in which situations.

Chemistry finals review

Justin helped our son with reviewing topics before his final exam. He was veey personable, able to accomodate our schedule and worked well with our son. We will be using him in the future for any chemistry questions.
