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

Algebra 1

Algebra was the first academic subject I tutored regularly in. When I was in 8th grade, I noticed that my peers in algebra were having difficulties that I didn't have. Once in a while I'd stay after school and help people who asked for it, and this soon turned into a regular after-school tutoring program. To this day, algebra is one of my favorite subjects to work in, and I find myself coming back to it with various students.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have tutored all ages since the time I was 13. I served as a tutor with the America Reads Program in college in rural Vermont working with a small elementary school. I both helped run the after-school program and served in the classroom as a teacher's aide. I have experience working with learning disabilities and differently-abled students as well as students as young as kindergarteners.

Elementary Math

Math was the first academic subject I tutored regularly in. When I was in 8th grade, I noticed that my peers in algebra were having difficulties that I didn't have. Once in a while I'd stay after school and help people who asked for it, and this soon turned into a regular after-school tutoring program. To this day, math is one of my favorite subjects to work in, and I have been fortunate enough to teach it consistently at all levels.

Guitar

I have played guitar since the age of 10; my father played professionally, and I learned by ear. I completed my BA in Music from Dartmouth College in 2009, and I have been an active musician since.

Music History

I have a B.A in music from Dartmouth College. I have taken courses in ethnomusicology specializing in the Persian Radif and Hindustani Raga traditions. I studied early music with Bill Summers and intend to pursue a PhD in historical musicology specializing in the late medieval and early Renaissance periods. I have experience and training in various periods and cultures, so I am more than qualified to tutor in this area.

Special Needs

My mother's sister was left with developmental disabilities after 2 bouts with meningitis as a toddler. As a result, I grew up immersed in a family deeply involved with people with special needs. I volunteered with Special Olympics throughout my childhood and into my college years, and my mother continues to work as a job coach for differently abled adults. This prepared me for my time working with the America Reads program, where I was assigned to a classroom with two autistic children and two dyslexic children. I worked with these same children from first through third grades.

Throughout my tutoring career, I've worked with ADD/ADHD, dyslexia, dyscalculia, anxiety issues, confidence issues, and various mental health issues with a high level of effectiveness. I am extremely empathetic and patient, and I have found that my students relate well and trust me. Because I am truly invested in seeing my students succeed, I try to be very tuned in to individual needs and learning quirks, and I adjust my style as necessary.

Study Skills

I have a BA from Dartmouth College and nearly 15 years of tutoring experience. I teach my students to move forward in an organized, step-by-step manner. Examples of study skills methods I use include

1) writing possible quotes for papers on individual note cards that organize information/citations while allowing students to play with order and organizational structure

2) using acronyms, music/tunes to help remember information (ex. singing the quadratic equation to "Pop Goes the Weasel")

3) optimizing time management and determining priorities

4) finding real world analogs for abstract concepts

Voice (Music)

I received my BA in music from Dartmouth College. While an undergraduate, I studied voice (I am an operatic contralto) with Louis Burkot and participated in the Dartmouth College Glee Club. After moving to the Boston area, I became involved in the MIT Musical Theatre Guild, capturing 2 leading roles and vocal directing the Guild's production of Jekyll and Hyde. I currently sing with 2 well respected area choirs and have had 2 private students in the area. I am comfortable teaching voice at a beginning to intermediate level.

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.
