About Ashley

I have over ten years of experience teaching children and adults in the subjects of English, Spanish, and art, both in the US and abroad. I returned to the US last year after eight years in Spain working as a certified ESL Teacher for students of all ages in both a regular classroom and private tutoring setting. My training and background as a teacher has allowed me to facilitate learning and improvement by setting clear and attainable goals, both short-term and long-term for my students.

In order to make learning fun and engaging, I often make up new games and activities, bring props, make great sound effects, and draw detailed illustrations for my class as part of the lesson plan, or to enhance it. I enjoy teaching and also make the effort needed to make sure my students enjoy learning as well!

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.
