About Ashley

Now scheduling summer SAT tutoring!

I am a licensed high school teacher with a master's degree in science teaching. I currently teach biology and environmental science at a local high school. I am qualified to tutor biology, math (through algebra), writing, and test prep (all sections of SAT, biology SAT II, and biology MCAS) and am available in the evenings and on weekends.

In undergraduate, I majored in biology and graduated as valedictorian of my class. I also have a master's of science degree in oceanography. I have worked as a research scientist on several projects both in the lab and in the field. Through my education and my research experiences, I have attained a strong science content background. I also love writing and my professors have always commented on my writing abilities. I have completed three written theses and have published two peer-reviewed scientific papers.

I have experience tutoring high school students in biology (both school courses and biology SAT II prep), algebra I, and SAT prep. I have worked as a college laboratory instructor for both introductory biology as well as anatomy and physiology and have also tutored college students in both of these subjects.

------------------------------------------------

Through these teaching experiences, I have learned how important it is to understand students' thinking so that I can figure out how to best help. I have learned to recognize when students have misconceptions, and I know how to explain topics in multiple ways for students with different learning styles.

Thank you for considering me as your tutor!
