Hello friends, my name is Jasmine and I am studying as a Junior at Arizona State University. I absolutely loved learning so much that I decided to become a community college instructor. My passion is Sociology with an emphasis on race and ethnic relations. When I'm not studying for a final, I enjoy spending time with my family, playing volleyball (for fun), or just hanging out with amazing people from non profit organizations. Aside from my free time, I have my own podcast on Soundcloud where I invite people of my Latino community to discuss topics on family, history, food, fashion, and traditions. I enjoy traveling to new places especially when it involves learning new cultures.
In life, I have two philosophies that I carry with me when I am either going about daily life and/or tutoring. One, never reprimand those who are trying to learn. So often people feel scared to ask questions or feel that they'll look unintelligent for not knowing the answer. I will always have patience for those who I tutor because an environment should not only be a comfortable one but also judgement-free zone. I am more than happy for students to interrupt me if they get lost on a problem. Two, embrace the differences that is being brought by others. I believe that there is more than one way to tutoring a person whether it is working on the problem itself or using food analogies to help with a problem--yes, I have done this. No matter if you are a visual learner, hands on, both, or anything in between, I welcome you with open arms! Though this may sound a little cheesy but I was that same nervous student in math class or that flustered student is anatomy so I can see where you are coming from and value your experiences with learning. If you have gotten anything from this bio, know this: there is no such this as a bad learner, there is no such thing as a dumb student, you can pass those classes. Who knows, maybe you'll be writing a bio like this to young students who need help.
Earned A's in high school for these math classes. After an instructor would give us notes, I would re-read the information and the example and annotate. The next night, I would go over the examples provided to see if I got the same answer then work on the math homework. Any questions I got incorrect, I would circle or highlight to ask my teacher the next day to go over in class. Those very same highlighted problems I would go over when studying an exam and work out the problem and questions similar to it.
I earned not only college credit in high school for this class but I also earned an A. The three best things that helped me were to: a) read my textbook out loud, b) draw the diagrams in the book, and c) teach someone else about what I learned. Sometimes hearing yourself talk about the material does wonders for not only you but also those who are listening. Use students who have missed a class lecture or are confused about a specific concept. Now, you don't have to be the best artist with a pen but draw the diagrams from your books and label them as you see it.
English classes and creative writing classes were my favorite classes to be in! Not only did I earn an A but I also took what I learned into my screenwriting and spoken word abilities. Never be afraid to read your paper out loud or even have a person listen to your paper out loud, word for word, this helps with not only with a little stage freight but also building confidence.
I enjoy seeing the differences in society because that is how society is built. With these differences comes a understanding of ourselves and others. Learning is more than just helping a student but creating connections, strengthening each other, and ending social barriers that make us think that we are not good enough. You are enough and you matter! Yes, your tutor is here!

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
