About Ashley

I worked as a tutor for three years at a federally funded program dedicated to helping college students reach their academic goals, specializing in helping first generation, low income, military veteran, or disabled students, free of charge. However, we helped any who came through our doors. I earned my bachelor's degree in social work in May 2015.

I am in the process of seeking my master's degree in social work. One may wonder why I never sought an education degree, or why I do not yet work in my chosen field. Tutoring is simply a passion of mine- and working one on one with an individual is far more gratifying. I feel I can make more of a difference working with an individual than a group of people, which is far less personal.

Tutoring is not about giving the answer to questions that a student does not understand. The most effective form of tutoring is the Socrates method- helping a student reach understanding by encouraging their own thinking. By walking a student through a process, one is helping them understand the concept by asking them questions about what they are learning. How does one learn if they are simply given the answers?

I would be honored to assist students, so please contact me and we will see what we can work out!

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.

Study Skills

I have 3 years of experience working for Student Support Services, paid for by the Department of Education. Our responsibilities went beyond tutoring simple subject matter- we also addressed the root problems of many students' issues, which often includes study skills and organization. Helping a student study more effectively is vital toward actually learning the material, rather than cramming information before a test.
