About this tutor

 Beyond the lesson time, I closely monitor each student's progress on an individual assignment level, systematically targeting weaknesses with strategic interventions. I help my students connect and integrate their skills in math, language, and comprehension to reach peak performance across the entire test. During the lesson, I always focus on simplying the content being tested, sidestepping distracting wording to get at the heart of the problem. I have seen rapid improvements take place over the course of a few months and sometimes a few weeks

I love working with students across all aspects of the SAT/ACT. It is very fulfilling to help each student break down barriers, access learning insights, and improve their confidence in tackling any challenge.

    Justin has been tutoring my son for the ACT's. His help has been invaluable. Not only has he mentored him in the exam process, but he has helped him with application essays for summer college programs which proved to be very successful. My son was excepted into both the Harvard Summer College as well as the Steven Institute Summer Pre-College program. Justin was extremely helpful in the process.

    After only two two-hour sessions working with Justin (over Skype! - so easy and convenient), my son scored 120 points higher on the PSAT. Justin is very easy to work with - he relates to teens in a casual way, yet gets a lot accomplished each session. His rates are reasonable, and easy online payment is simple. We would recommend Justin for anyone wanting to get those extra points on future tests. We will definitely book more sessions before the next SAT!

    He described the concepts very well and taught be refinements and tricks that I would not have known without the help.

  • Jack Theodore

    My tutor, Justin, was the perfect fit for me. I worked with him for many months and he continuously helped me improve after every session. He helped me get through extremely tough concepts pretty easily. He did work outside of the sessions, such as creating 20 page study guides based on my weak areas, which were very tough to make. These kept me on track for extreme improvement. Most importantly, he was extremely nice and enjoyed what he was doing which made me feel and act the same way. Through Justin and Gateway Prep, I enjoyed working and getting better on the SAT, which I never thought I would say.

What is your typical process for working with a new student?

I will usually begin by assessing past experiences with the test, previous preparation, as well as relevant academic workload. I'll go into detail on official score reports to see which categories, content, and question types constitute major strengths and weaknesses. I will find out about students aspirations for colleges and what timeframes are in play. Then, I will build a program to address the students unique needs and study habits. 

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

Licensed K-12 English Teacher with experience full time in NJ school system. I have taught SAT/ACT preparation for 6 years and have worked with diverse body of students, including special education and gifted/talented. I teach all sections of both tests and have developed a rigorous math curriculum to address students across the spectrum.

Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

The pricing system will depend on whether lessons are purchased individually or in a package. The price will also depend on lesson time, namely 1 hour, 90 minute, or 2 hour lessons. I will recommend the lesson time based differences in student schedule, timeline before the test, and level of score improvement needed.
