Founder, Tutor/Educational Consultant

Jasmine has over 10 years of experience helping students excel in a wide range of K-12, college, business, and test prep subjects. Starting as a peer tutor in high school, she realized her passion for teaching early-on.  Jasmine soon started tutoring independently and specializing in advanced subjects.  It didn't take long to realize the gaps that existed in both public and private education.  Tutoring was often expensive, but not always effective.  Jasmine started Terrific Tutors® to provide high level one-on-one instruction, at reasonable rates, with comprehensive support that ensures every student's success.  Over the years, she has helped hundreds of students dramatically improve their performance in school and achieve top-tier scores on standardized exams.  

In addition to tutoring, Jasmine consults with parents of K-12 students who are severely struggling with school.  She works with teachers and administrators to create and implement comprehensive strategies that help students quickly meet academic goals.  Jasmine helps parents and students navigate IEP and 504P processes.  She also acts as an advocate for students in school meetings and correspondence.  She is excited to help you or your student succeed!

Jasmine received her Bachelor of Arts in Economics from California State University, Northridge.

Ryan

Sprouty 4.jpg

Tutor/Test-Prep Consultant

Ryan Goggans received her Bachelor of Arts in Education from the University of Louisiana at Lafayette, graduated magna cum laude, and was named the Outstanding Graduate of the College of Education.  She has five years’ experience as a classroom teacher and fourteen years’ experience as a private tutor.  During her years of teaching in the classroom, she was nominated for Teacher of the Year twice. 

 

She is currently tutoring students online from first graders to high school students in various subjects, and specializes in Pre-Algebra, Algebra, Geometry, and ACT and SAT test prep.  It is Ryan’s philosophy that in any tutor-student interaction, a comfortable, trusting relationship is imperative, and the entire student should be addressed.  Therefore, adjustments to work and study habits as well as self-esteem and attitudes about learning are interwoven throughout each of her tutoring sessions.  A strong advocate for student empowerment, she believes that students are very in tune with their strengths, weaknesses, and needs, and she therefore treats them as partners throughout the tutoring process.
