Would anybody like to tackle a math problem for me, please?

I'd like to get my car paid off as soon as possible. Right now, I owe $9,038.86 (rounded up to $9,039). My monthly payment is $289.42 (rounded up to $290). The interest rate is 9.5%.

How much extra do I need to pay per month to get it paid off in one year (by May 1, 2015 -- 12 months). Or by the end of 2015 (20 months?)

Thanks much!
