About Jasmine

I have over ten years of tutoring experience, through volunteer experience, working with non-profits, and paid tutoring through companies and independently. As a certified teacher, I effectivlt differentiate lessons and individualized instruction for all of my students. I take the time throughout my sessions to get to know students learning styles, preferred subjects and understand what motivates them so that they can find success.

I specialize in helping students build study skills, organization skills, standardized test prep, and apply/prepare for college. Also, as a graduate of Emory and the University of Southern California, I have extensive experience in the undergraduate and graduate admission process. I help families reduce the confusion of the college process and set up a manageable game plan for the college admission season. This method also applies to my standardized test prep approach. I have a no-nonsense approach to standardized test prep that focuses on reviewing essential content knowledge, building skills, test-taking strategy, and increasing speed. I always focus on how to reduce as much school-related anxiety as possible for students so they can concentrate on doing their best.

I hold myself to a high standard, so I come prepared with handouts and practice problems for each tutoring session. I also provide additional material at a client's request for more additional practice. In that regard, I have a 12-hour cancelation policy, but I will offer a make-up session for any missed appointments within the same week. Also, I tutor at public libraries, bookstores, at a student's school, and in-home, as requested.

I look forward to hearing from you and helping you (or your child(ren)) reach your goals!

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

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.
