About Ashley

I believe that I have the necessary professional qualifications to be a tutor for your child. I have had successful experiences during my internship, student teaching, and long term substitute assignments at Stamford High School. Since Stamford High School is in an urban setting, I have learned a great deal about classroom management and different teaching styles to suit students’ particular needs. In addition, I partook in a positive long-term English teaching assignment at New Milford High School; where I implemented my abilities of working closely with parents, students, and staff. I know that I will be able to effectively handle many different situations that I am faced with at your school. I currently am a CT certified secondary English teacher and I hold my Master's degree in secondary education.

I consider my strongest quality my ability to work with and understand a variety of different personalities. This is evidenced by my dealings with particularly quirky, needy, or difficult-to-manage students. I have a knack for finding common interests with these students and they find it easy to talk to me. By creating this connection, I am able to keep their interests and gain their trust as their teacher.

Since 2006, I have been a tutor and instructor for Upward Bound, a federally funded program held at Sacred Heart University. This program is for Bridgeport high school students who need extra help and want to succeed. Through this program I have tutored students in English and I have taught a summer literature class. Working with Upward Bound has given me tutoring experience with a wide range of students with very different personalities and learning styles.
