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.

Great tutor

Ashley helped my daughter study for the SAT's. She was friendly, reliable, knowledgeable and easy to work with. My daughter feels that her time with Ashley was well spent; she now feels more confident and ready for the tests. We would definitely recommend Ashley as a tutor.
