My name is Ashley, and I am located in Paradise Valley. I am switching careers (formerly a mental health therapist) and beginning to teach. I love working with children and have two of my own. I am particularly skilled in English, literature, grammar, phonics, handwriting and elementary education.
I believe in using positive reinforcement and a collaborative method of teaching. With this, I like to work with my students rather than strictly using lecture and demonstrations. I utilize flashcards, mnemonics, and link methods to help with learning and memorization. When I was in school, classmates would always ask for my notes and methods before each final exam. I like to have fun with the kids and increase their passion for learning; I hope that it resembles my own!
