About Ashley

I am a licensed high school teacher with a master's degree in science teaching. I currently teach biology, environmental science, and Anatomy & Physiology at a local high school. Before teaching high school, I worked as a college laboratory instructor and taught introductory biology and anatomy and physiology.

I have experience tutoring the SAT/ACT (all sections), biology (both school courses and biology SAT II), earth science, algebra, geometry, writing, and anatomy & Physiology.

In undergraduate, I majored in biology and graduated as valedictorian of my class. I also have a master's of science degree in oceanography. I have worked as a research scientist on several projects both in the lab and in the field. Through my education and my research experiences, I have attained a strong science content background. I also love writing and my professors have always commented on my writing abilities. I have completed three written theses and have published two peer-reviewed scientific papers.
