About Ashley

Hello there! I have been working with children for over 13 years. I have helped many children with their homework and even worked as a para-educator for several years. I have a lot of experience with special needs and I have a lot of patience. I love working with children and I like to make learning fun. I realize that all children learn differently, and the more we get to know one another, the more helpful I can be.

I write in my free time, and have always had a knack for English. I write stories, poems, essays, and I even blog.

I worked as a para-educator for years and I was surrounded by the elementary curriculum.

I have worked with many children on their fine motor skills. I have worked with many children with special needs that have struggled in this area. I have learned some techniques to help build their skills.

I am a bright, fun and patient teacher. I really enjoy helping children. I struggled as a child with school, and I would have liked someone to invest in me. This drives me to invest in others. I want to help children succeed.

I have passed tests needed to be a para-educator in elementary education. I have worked in the field in three different elementary schools. I have adapted the curriculum in classrooms for children with special needs.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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

Aspergers

I have been a nanny to a boy with ASD for the last 3 years. They do not categorize them as Asperger's anymore, instead the are on the spectrum. I helped him with his homework, daily tasks, therapies, etc. He is one of the most amazing, smart children I know, he just has trouble with theory of mind and empathy. His brain processes information differently and needed to have his teaching adapted to that. I have also written many papers, including my senior thesis, on the development and cognitive processes of ASD.

Autism

As mentioned in my qualifications for Aspbergers, ASD is a spectrum. There are highly functioning, and low functioning aspects. I adapt my teaching based on the individual child's needs. My studies in college have mostly been based on ASD and it is something I am passionate about. I have worked with a non-verbal 6 year old and taught him to say "Ash" when referring to me. I also taught him to say his sounds. He just needed understanding and patience.

Handwriting

I have helped several children overcome their fine motor deficits. I can write in cursive and print very well. I have used specific types of lined paper and hand movements to help guide children in their handwriting progression.

Special Needs

I have been working with children that have special needs for over 10 years. I have been a nanny to several, and worked as a para-educator in special needs classrooms. I have adapted the curriculum to meet their individual needs and provided one-on-one teaching.
