Great teacher!
It was a real pleasure working with Justin. Always on time, very articulated and broad knowledge/awareness of the differences between the US and Europe. If you need an insight on how things work in the US, Justin is the right person. You can basically debate with him about everything, which is good for your language skills. Highly recommended !
Justin is a very good teacher. Recommended.
I've followed ten lessons with Justin, especially to improve my speaking skills. He's a very flexible, social, friendly, communicative guy with broad interests. I really liked to talk and converse with him (only from time to time I had to interrupt him to practice my speaking skills too ;-))

Rédaction de CV et gestion des entretiens d'embauche
Il y a beaucoup de gens très compétents, qui postulent pour le Job qui leur correspond, mais ratent leurs candidatures (CV, entretien, ...) pour des petits détails, d'autres sont moins compétents, mais savent bien se vendre lors des différentes étapes du recrutement. Le CV reste le premier argument de vente, il peut être votre force ou votre faiblesse. Je suis Manager d'une entreprise de Consulting, je gère une équipe de recruteurs et une équipe de consultants, nous recrutons en permanence, je reçois des dizaines de CV's par jour, et je réalise plusieurs entretiens d'embauche en interne et en externe par semaine. Ainsi, je sais comment un CV doit être fait pour plaire. Je vous transmettrai le savoir que j'ai pu acquérir durant mon expérience pour vous donner "un coup de pouce" avec une méthode qui se veut être : efficace, valorisante, réaliste !

IB preparation and university preparation for High-school students
I specialize in the IB subjects of HL mathematics and HL physics. Additionally, I specialize in ACT reasoning/SAT subject preparation having experience tutoring other students in the past and myself having high scores on these tests. As an added bonus, I have extensive experience in essay writing for classes like English, but more importantly as application essays for upcoming undergraduate students. I have been through the United States/United Kingdom application processes and can advise/guide students still uncertain about their choices, while at the same time providing reliable feedback in crafting powerful application essays.
