All of Ashley’s current tutoring subjects are listed at the left. You can read more about Ashley’s qualifications in specific subjects below.

Geometry

Geometry is such a fun math topic - it is intuitive, practical and physical. It is easy to see why the theories work if you break them down and use a lot of practical examples. Unfortunately, the reason students hate geometry is proofs. You have to memorize a lot of vocabulary and get used to math terminology like theta, subtend and pythagorean. I can help make the terminology less scary and show students systems for solving proofs.

Prealgebra

Prealgebra can be a very challenging subject for students. Often this is the first time variables are introduced and honestly seeing letters in math is quite threatening. Also, fractions are reintroduced and proportions build on that knowledge-subjects most students struggle with through high school. I am excellent at helping students understand the meaning of a variable and why they are useful. I can also break down difficult concepts such as proportions and help them understand why learning to do those problems and apply them to every day life is a valuable skill.

Precalculus

Precalculus is the subject I teach the most frequently, and it is also the one that is most difficult to teach well. While it depends on the student, generally explaining trigonometric functions in terms of geometry or basic algebra helps significantly. Also, I currently have 3 precalculus students all of whom have increased their scores by an entire letter grade.

Approved Subjects

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 certified in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
