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 an excellent tutor. My daughter has learned so much from him within a few short weeks. The difference from the last tutor is unbelievable. We expect her scores to rise drastically. I would recommend his tutoring to anyone looking for excellent instruction

    Justin was a great support to me during my preparation for the SAT. He made availability around my schedule and committed many hours each week as the test got closer. He was patient, helpful with explanations and focused in the areas where I needed the most practice. I appreciated that he also shared strategy for test taking and gave me helpful tips to move through the test at an efficient pace. I have already delivered a 200 pt increase on my second test and recently took it for a third time where I am expecting an even higher score. I highly recommend Justin as a person and a tutor.

    Justin was most definitely a big factor in my college process. I am someone who is not the best test taker, but Justin understood the type of learner I am. Not only did he help me consistently throughout the SAT process, but he continued to update me with skills and strategies to do my best on the exam! I truly recommend Justin as a tutor ! He will help boost your skills, and will continue to motivate you throughout the process .

    Unlike prior tutoring experiences, when there is a math problem I don't understand how to do/interpret I feel like Justin is able to explain clearly where I am going wrong. I have seen a great leap in my math scores and I do think that is because I finally understand why I am getting problems incorrect.

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.
