Programming

“Justin has been teaching my first grader and my fourth grader how to code in Scratch and Python, respectively. His engaging style of teaching has resulted in an enthusiastic response from my children and they look forward to learning more and more. They have a newfound appreciation and curiosity for how everything works from apps to search engines. Justin cares deeply about the success of his students and is ever professional in all his dealings with us. I wholeheartedly recommend Justin without reservation.” Doug, Father of two children

Academic Subjects

“Justin has my highest recommendation. He tutored my son, Robert, all through his days at Stuyvesant, getting him through numerous difficult subjects like math and physics and also tutoring him for the SAT, where Robert scored very well. In addition to a solid knowledge of the subject matter, Justin has a particular gift for relating to teenage students, something that is not always easy. I have also let some friends know about Justin and have always received excellent reports about his work.” Bob Morgan, Attorney, Emmet, Marvin & Martin, LLP

“Justin tutored my son Andrew in essay writing, math, biology, Spanish, and in the entrance examinations and essays for specialized high schools. Andrew’s grades climbed up and stayed there, and he was accepted to Brooklyn Tech, where Justin continues to keep him on track. My younger daughter Edel, meanwhile, was struggling in math and language arts. Since working with Justin, Edel’s grades have been rising steadily and sharply. I strongly recommend this tutor.” Bernadette Pokorny, Mother of two

“I think what impressed us most about Justin was his range and flexibility. When our son Kyle was a student at Bronx Science, Justin guided him through ancient Greek history, Spanish grammar, essays on Shakespeare, and more. Kyle triumphed in his classes and is now attending Tulane. We recommend Justin for a wide range of high school tutelage.” Marcella Silverman, Professor of Law, Fordham University

Standardized Tests

“Justin was instrumental in increasing my verbal performance and score on the GMAT. We worked together for 2 or 3 months and I appreciated his patience, explanations and back-to-basics approach. We used actual test questions during our time together and dissected not just why answers were correct, but why others weren’t. By test day, I felt extremely prepared and at ease, and I went on to attend Northwestern University’s Kellogg School of Management.” Sonali Lamba CEO & Founder, Brideside wedding designs

“Justin tutored me and four of my colleagues on the GMAT at our home in the financial district, turning the living room into a miniature classroom. He was an equally engaging and skillful teacher on all four sections of the test. He also did a great job balancing the variety in learning styles and speeds among the five of us. Exciting results and a fantastic group discount!” Salvador Avila-Bretts Global Client Group Associate, BlackRock, Inc.

Editing and Applications

“I have known Justin since June 2012, first as a GRE tutor and then as my grad school application advisor. During our GRE prep, we focused on expanding my vocabulary and honing my writing skills. As a result, I scored in the top 25% of the verbal section. Justin also worked with me on editing my personal statement for the grad school application. Because of his considerable experience in writing and text editing, Justin was able to very quickly assess my needs and tailor his help accordingly. His suggestions and edits were instrumental in constructing a concise and strong statement. With Justin’s critical guidance, I was admitted to one of the top Art History graduate programs in the country. I highly recommend working with Justin.” Patryk Tomaszewski, accepted to NYU Institute of Fine Arts

“Justin tutored me on the GRE analytical writing. As English is my second language, I needed someone who would understand my background as a non-native speaker and incorporate it to his instruction. I was very impressed with Justin when I receive a first feedback because he nailed my concerns as a non-native writer such as grammar and unclear/unnecessary sentences. His example sentences were especially helpful because it showed me how to construct clear and concise sentences. In each essay feedback, he provided both specific feedback and overall impression of my writing that helped me improve writing skills. The most impressive part is that everything was done via email and that Justin still managed to do an excellent job!” Miji Um, Fellow at The National Institute on Drug Abuse
