My name is Jestine, I am 44 years old, and I live in Irmo, SC. I am married with a 3 & 1/2 year old little girl. I have 22 years of SC teaching experience in mathematics. I taught 3 years at Brooklyn Cayce High School (1991-94) & another 3 years at Richland Northeast High School (1994-97) and am currently serving my 16th year at Columbia College of Columbia, SC where I supervise pre-service math teachers.
I have also served as a math home-bound teacher for Richland School District Two for 15 years. During my teaching career, I have taught courses ranging from basic developmental algebra to Calculus I. My knowledge of content is very strong, and I am well trained in the latest technologies that support our current-day math curriculum.
I have a BA in secondary mathematics, a Master's degree in Secondary Math Education, and am currently working on my Ph.D dissertation in Math Education.
I hope that I will be able to help many of your students, and I look forward to the opportunity of being able to work with them. Hi,

Thanks to Ms. O for helping us out. She has made a huge difference in our daughter's grades and has been so accommodating!
Jestine was outstanding. My son's first lesson with a tutor and scored and A on his test. He really liked her a lot and her Precal lesson was outstanding. Thanks so much Jestine !!
Jestine O. has been a great tutor for my son. I don't know that he would have gotten through this class without her and not only is he getting it done but his grade has improved significantly and is laying that important foundation for college. She is very knowledgeable, friendly and provides detailed notes on what happened at session. She has been easy to work with for scheduling and worked with me for reschedules without hesitation. If you need a great tutor, you can count on her.
Mrs. O. is an awesome tutor! My son was struggling in geometry and his failing grades caused him to dislike school as well as math. After one tutoring session with Mrs. O, he regained his confidence. On the same night he went home and reviewed the information they discussed during tutoring. He was excited about his ability to understand the content. His grades have continually increased in math and he looks forward to his tutoring sessions. Thank you very much Mrs. O.
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.
