About Ashley

I am an elementary education teacher with an endorsement in middle school social studies. I have taught K-6th grade and have had the opportunity to work with many students with a variety of needs including students with ADHD, autism, and developmental delays. During my tenure overseas in the UAE I developed and implemented a phonics program for upper elementary ELL students. Most of my teaching experiences have been with diverse multi-age classrooms and have taught the breadth of elementary school curriculum. Because of my varied experiences, I have gained a wealth of professional and academic knowledge.

Like in the classroom, when I am tutoring, I like to engage in many activities and strategies. I know the frustrations of a child who is struggling in school. I stay in tune with my students needs and tailor tutoring sessions accordingly. Some activities I have employed in the past were, readers theatres, flashcards, board games, culminating projects, running records, songs, and graphic organizers. As an elementary teacher, I am well versed in the skills and knowledge needed to master a concept.

I am highly proficient in the Common Core and have been implementing the standards in my own classroom for four years. I am also familiar with explaining the standards to parents and other community members.

I look forward to helping your child attain the skills and knowledge needed to succeed in school and life!

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am qualified to tutor elementary K-6th clients because I am an elementary education teacher. I currently teach a 1st/2nd combined class. In the past I have taught Kindergarten and a 5th/6th multi-age class which included 3rd-6th graders. I graduated from Knox College in 2010 with a degree in elementary education and I am certified to teach in Illinois and Arizona.


I am qualified to tutor on phonics support because I currently teach first and second grade, where phonics instruction is direct and explicit. I also have Spalding Phonics training, and training in Reading Horizons, a direct instruction phonics program.


I have recently moved back to the States after developing a phonics program, mentoring teachers, and teaching 4th grade in the UAE. My main focus was on literacy and developing a love of reading in my students.

Social Studies

I am qualified to tutor in social studies because I have a middle school social studies endorsement on my Illinois Professional Educator License. In addition to this endorsement (which required a subject knowledge proficiency test) I was a history major in college.
