MY SERVICES include… • SAT/ACT test prep • Personal statement & essay consultant for college applications • Long-term academic mentorship & private English/Math tutoring Need a Mentor? 🐥 Mindset & Motivation? 🤌🏽 Method? 📚 You’re in the right place. BEYOND MY STATS… • 2380 out of 2400 SAT, perfect reading + writing scores • Early action & 3.84 GPA @ Princeton University • English major & Senior Thesis Prize Winner • 10+ years experience all-around SAT/ACT & Common App expert • Excellent communicator & inspiring mentor I am fairly straightforward. There is no magic secret to success. In each session, I work by asking questions. I want my student to take accountability from the very beginning with me, by articulating for themselves their process of answering the test questions. I give direct feedback to them, based on what they say or where they get stumped. I provide them with whatever logistical information they might be missing and field any questions they have. After every single question, I ask them: What surprised you here? What did you learn from this question that you can bring forward with you? I help my students refine their way of thinking and working with themselves. I require that students commit to taking a full practice test every 2 weeks, if they want to work with me. Progress comes one milestone at a time. As a teacher, I value accountability, curiosity, and the process. What I have observed, is that people get very scared and dismissive when I start to talk about the process of learning. They start to think that process and product — the score that you want — are mutually exclusive. This is not true. As a lifelong learner, I have found that focusing and slowing down to observe my own process of learning has helped me grow more quickly and effectively. By letting go of what I think I need, I give myself space to actually get there. 🌟 EXCEPTIONAL LEARNING EXPERT 🌟 👩‍🏫 MY TEACHING STYLE ⚡️☀️ • Student-centered • Process-oriented • Warm & direct • Engaging and efficient • Intuitive, empathetic and incisive 📖 What book am I reading this month?

My student, Jackson, scored a 34 in English on the ACT out of 36. My student, Isabella, scored a perfect 36 on English, and she had special accommodations for her dyslexia. My student, Brianna, spent 4 hours with me and raised her reading and writing score from a 740 to a 770, superscoring to a 1570. My all-around students — on average — score 150 points higher on the SAT after 6-8 sessions with me. Students who have committed to a weekly program have seen increases of 250+ points.

Working with Jasmine on SAT preparation was an amazingly rewarding experience for my son. She worked hand-in-hand with him to identify and target specific improvement points. The customized study plan they crafted together was a perfect match for his learning style. Jasmine's approach was comprehensive and effective. She focused on strategic learning and a detailed analysis of how he answered questions. In addition, she taught him how to manage his time and energy effectively during the test, which made a huge difference as the test day drew closer. The payoff was excellent : my son improved his scores by 200 points! This is a clear reflection of her tutoring skills and dedication to her students. I'm immensely thankful to Jasmine for her commitment to my son's test performance and the outstanding results have set him up for success on his college application journey.

Jasmine has been not only a great teacher for our daughter, but also a very positive presence. Our daughter went into the test confident, prepared and relaxed. As a parent, I loved watching the interaction, and our daughter has nothing but highest praise for Jasmine and she is one tough critic as far as teachers are concerned. Thank you!

My name is Shannon and I have a 17 year old HS junior named Nell. Nell has been working with Jasmine for a couple months on SAT tutoring 2/week, 90 minutes each time. We have absolutely love Jasmine. As a mom, I have enjoyed hearing the interaction between Jasmine and Nell. My daughter has anxiety and doesn’t easily take to people. After one session, Nell was hooked and I was relieved. They work hard together, they laugh and Nell has learned so much. She wants Jasmine to work with her through college because she has built a true connection with her. Nell even took a couple sessions to focus on Trigonometry. Jasmine switched gears and helped her thru an upcoming test. She has been worth every penny. I honestly believe if she lived in SC we would have her over for dinner and to hang out. She is incredible. I HIGHLY recommend Jasmine to anyone looking for a very smart, genuine, patient, empathetic and energetic tutor. She has been super accommodating with our very busy academic/athletic schedule. I appreciate her so much and value the connection she has made with my child. She is a gem. I look forward to seeing what Nell’s SAT score will be.

We have loved working with Jasmine. Marena scored a 1530 in October after a 1300 on her PSAT last year. She is a ball of stress with high standards for her academics. I knew that we'd have to find a solid tutor for her to manage the process. M. came out of her first session with Jasmine in June and I didn't hear a peep!! Usually she has something to complain about. When I asked her how it went, she started talking to me about her learning "process." Music to my ears.. M. is more confident in herself after working with Jasmine this summer and we feel more comfortable going into college application season. Jasmine is that extra special, supremely competent, and adaptable tutor that l've raved about to all my girlfriends.

Sam scored a 1500 in October after scoring in the high 1300s for months. Wow. Jasmine is a godsend. My daughter is a hard worker, but has a lot of anxiety, especially with math and tests. She was convinced that she could not score any higher. Jasmine helped Sam make lots of helpful breakthroughs with her mindset and approach. Not to mention the formulas. I’ve heard bits of their sessions together and Jasmine is really the dream mentor who gives her students the perspective they need. She has a strong presence and listens to Sam as much as she talks. As an long-time educator myself, I appreciate Jasmine’s professionalism and commitment to Sam beyond the numbers. Sam wants to work with her now for English class, math weekly and also for college applications down the line. Highly recommend Jasmine to anyone who wants the real deal. Sam feels like she’s got a buddy who just so happens to be her tutor and mentor
