Qualifications & Experience

I am passionate about helping students succeed, and I have extensive experience working with students of all ages and abilities. I began tutoring and providing college counseling during my undergraduate years at Stanford University, and I've been helping students in some capacity since then.

I've taught for a few test prep companies, and I've written a number of articles to assist students with the SAT, ACT, and the college application process. I specialize in the verbal sections of the standardized tests, and my students have achieved impressive results.

I'm a firm believer in trying to making the learning process fun and connecting with my students on a personal level. I tend to relate well with people, and many of my former students have kept in touch with me over the years.

Justin is the man! He tutored me in multiple subjects when I was in high school, and he helped me with every aspect of the college application process. Not only is he a smart guy who really knows his stuff, but also he's kind and funny. He helped me tremendously, and I'm super grateful that I was able to work with him. Now I'm lucky enough to consider Justin a good friend.

I wish my teachers in high school were like Justin. I first met him when I took an SAT class that he was teaching. His enthusiasm and sense of humor made the class fun. Because I liked his class so much, I had Justin tutor me after the class was finished. Primarily, we worked on SAT Writing and Reading. My skills and scores improved dramatically during my time working with Justin. I can't recommend him enough for anyone looking for tutoring.

Review: When my senior year of high school began, I knew almost nothing about colleges, financial aid, and applications. I was the first one in my family to go to college, so I couldn't get help at home. Thankfully, Justin was able to work with me and guide me every step of the way. He was always willing to answer any question I had, and he spent a lot of time helping me with my college essays. Thanks in part to his assistance, I got into every college I applied to, including Stanford and Berkeley. What really separates Justin is his ability to connect with students. And he actually cares that everyone he works with succeeds.

Justin tutored me for the SAT. After working with him, my score went up over 200 points. He definitely knows what he's doing, and somehow he's able to make learning grammar enjoyable. Also, he's helped me revise essays for school and various applications. I know I benefited greatly from his help. He's a cool guy. Since I've known him, he's always been there to help me or answer my questions.
