About Jasmine

I am currently a fourth grade teacher in the Chapel Hill-Carrboro City School District. After a successful and rewarding first year in the field, I became the district-wide recipient of the Promising New Teacher award. Some of the criteria for the award included being currently a first year teacher; having superior instructional skills which directly impact students’ learning and superior communication skills that established positive relationships with students, parents, faculty and members of the community; and being distinguished as a superior first year teacher as compared with past and/or present first-year teachers.

I am also a recent Appalachian State University honors (Magna Cum Laude) graduate, earning a BS in elementary education (K-6) with a secondary academic concentration in English and a minor in music. While attending ASU, I was North Carolina Teaching Fellow, a member of the Marching Mountaineers, and University Housing resident assistant.

I thoroughly enjoy facilitating positive learning environments for students, and I pride myself in my ability to balance fun and academics to provide a more enjoyable experience.

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.

Clarinet

I began playing the clarinet in 2000, during fourth grade in New York. In my elementary and middle school years, I performed in district and county bands in Suffolk County. After moving to North Carolina, I continued playing and performed in my high school's concert, marching, and jazz bands. I performed in county and district bands from 2008-2009, as well. I continued playing after high school and earned a minor in music at Appalachian State University, having taken six semesters of private lessons and three semesters of marching band.

I am currently an elementary teacher, playing leisurely.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am a recent Appalachian State University honors (Magna Cum Laude) graduate earning a BS in elementary education (K-6) with a secondary academic concentration in English and a minor in music. While attending ASU, I was North Carolina Teaching Fellow, a member of the Marching Mountaineers, and University Housing resident assistant.

Elementary Math

I am currently a fourth grade teacher in the Chapel Hill-Carrboro City School District. I pride myself in my hands-on approach to mathematics, using physical and virtual manipulatives, such as base-ten blocks, fraction strips, pattern blocks, color tiles, and counters. I also teach with great emphasis on explaining how students approached their answer using numbers, pictures, and words.

Grammar

With a secondary academic concentration in English, I have taken many courses to enhance my grammar skills and my ability to integrate important grammar concepts into both reading and writing. In the classroom, days are set aside in each writing unit to address grade-appropriate grammatical rules. By means of small group and individual conferences in both reading and writing, grammatical instruction can be more individualized to target the specific students' level of understanding.

Reading

Reading is more than a hobby or something I teach; it is a passion of mine. I strongly believe that students' exposure to books has a direct impact on their academic performance. As students are exposed to more novels and picture books through read-alouds/book clubs and their coinciding rigorous discussions, they gain a deeper understanding and become more accustomed to deeper thinking that can be utilized across the curriculum.

Vocabulary

Students' exposure to books will obviously increase their vocabulary; however, direct word study is essential for student understanding. I have experience facilitating word study units through Greek and Latin prefixes, affixes, roots, and suffixes. I have also led units that specifically address parts of speech and expanding students' knowledge of words within the part of speech (i.e.: adverbs, adjectives, etc.)
