About Yasmin

I've been teaching and tutoring for more than 10 years, and I can tutor a wide variety of subjects including biology, chemistry, physics, algebra, geometry, math analysis, calculus, writing skills, ESL, and SAT prep. If it helps, I'm conversationally fluent in German and Chinese as well.

I am Texas-certified for all sciences and math, and California-certified for sciences. I went to UCLA for my Bachelors of Science in microbiology, immunology, and molecular genetics and Stanford University for my Masters in Education. I also am credentialed in Teaching English as a Second Language.

I'm very well-rounded, and got good SAT and GRE scores in all 3 areas, as well as took many AP classes in high school and scored either 4's or 5's. I'm a good test-taker and I know how to teach other people to be as well.

Working with students is my passion--I'm very friendly and easy-going. I know lots of strategies to teach students in ways that are easy to understand. I work with each student differently, customizing my instruction to what my students will understand the best.

For those of you preparing for college, please talk to me about my systematic, college counseling program! I've been to the best colleges, and know how to make you a strong candidate for them, as well as how to prepare you for when you get there.

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.

Biology

Biology is my passion and love--I taught biology and AP biology for 4 years in California, and many of my students passed the AP exam with a 4 or higher.

College Counseling

I've worked as a college counselor for various schools as well as individually. Most of my private students aim for entrance at top universities around the country.

ESL/ESOL

I am currently working as an ESL teacher in a local school. I have 7 years of experience working with ESL students, and I have worked with students from Mexico, El Salvador, Peru, Korea, China, Japan, Pakistan, and India. I also hold an English-Language-Learner certification.

Excellent tutor

Knowledgeable and able to break down the material for better understanding. She was very flexible with scheduling. She was able to develop sample problems at the request of my teacher to ensure that I had understood the material.
