About Ashley

I specialize in teaching chemistry to students of any level in a way the individual can understand easily. Each lesson is conformed to the students needs and learning style. Recently, I was a guest lecturer for the General Chemistry for Engineers at the University of Maryland in the Fall of 2016. I also taught in a university setting as a laboratory teaching assistant or discussion leader since 2012, and began to tutor in 2015. My expertise is in general chemistry for both college and high school levels, nuclear chemistry, and mathematics as it is applied to the sciences.

My future goals are to complete my PhD in nuclear chemistry, and to teach at the college level. I am available evenings and weekends. I am willing to travel up to 20 min (each way) from Frederick, MD for one hour sessions. I am willing to travel up to 40 minutes (each way) for 2 hour sessions.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam.

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.

Chemistry

I am a 4th year PhD student with a specialty in nuclear chemistry and education. I have more than 5 years experience as teaching assistant in the university setting.

Excellent tutor-positive and patient

Ashley is a natural teacher, who knows chemistry and works with a student patiently until it clicks. She has energy and a big smile. She has the ability to see what is difficult for a student and finds an approach that clarifies. She is also very efficient with her time--without rushing.
