I have tutored for several companies in Columbia, SC and Charleston, SC, and have over 3 years of experience. I have a B.S. in Marine Biology and a B.A. in Spanish from the College of Charleston. I graduated Magna Cum Laude from the Honors College, was a Global Scholar and received departmental honors in both Biology and Spanish as well the outstanding student in Marine Biology award. I am currently working on a Master's in Biological Science.

I spent 2 years tutoring with a private company both in person and online. During this time I worked with students between 1st and 9th grade with math as well as preparation for the HSAP. During this time I was also an instructor in the companies summer enrichment camp working with K-2nd graders building skills in reading and math to get ahead in school

I also spent a year tutoring higher level math and science as well as helping students prepare for the SAT and ACT. References available upon request. Each of my SAT/ACT students have achieved LIFE scholarship level scores. Over the past year I have worked with many students helping them strengthen weak SAT/ACT areas as well as providing test taking strategies to give them the extra boost they need to reach their test score goals for scholarships and college admissions.

I also served as a Spanish Conversation teacher at the College of Charleston for 4 semesters working with lower-level Spanish students to help them improve their conversational skills. I spent 4 months studying Spain and received high marks on my Oral Proficiency Interview (OPI).

My tutoring techniques are simple, but effective. I think the most important part of tutoring is ensuring that the student has a firm grasp on concepts before moving on to new concepts. I don't move from concepts until the student can self-correct and explain the why behind answers. I also believe in keeping learned concepts fresh, and I always assign practice problems to do between sessions, and begin each session with a 5-10 minute review of previous concepts because I feel it is important to always have a strong foundation.

I think what makes me a good math tutor is that I am not a person who was naturally gifted at math, which often surprises people. Like I tell my students, you are only as strong as your weakest subject, so strive to make that subject your strongest. Throughout grade school I pushed myself and spent hours getting extra help from teachers and watching youtube videos trying to really understand difficult concepts. I know what trips students up because it tripped me up, and I know other ways of thinking through concepts because I have seen and taught concepts from nearly every angle. Most of all, I know the feeling of not only passing a difficult class, but excelling in it and I want all of my students to experience that feeling.

Science is what I have built my career around, so I like to cultivate an appreciation and understanding of science in my students that may be feeling overwhelmed in their science classes. I have many mnemonic devices, songs and chants to help remember scientific concepts, and I also like to use diagrams, animations and tactile learning to solidify concepts.

Please contact me to set up a session. I am available most weekends, most evenings and early mornings. I am also frequently available during the day on weekdays.

Jasmin Is Awesome And Very Intelligent

She is helping me prepare for the SAT and I'm beginning to feel very confident about the exam. I am relearning everything about Algebra 1 and 2 from linear equations to graphing. She is very encouraging and has really given me some awesome strategies for the SAT. I will be taking it in June.
