About Ashlie

**The next available tutoring sessions begin April 27th, 2015.**

Hello and welcome to my profile page!

I have a B.S. and M.S. in Chemistry and taught high school chemistry in Baltimore for six years. I am currently working toward my Ph.D. in Chemical Education at the Catholic University of America in Washington, D.C.. This degree, a combination of psychology, education and chemistry research, involves the in-depth study of learning and teaching in the chemistry classroom. I am already more empowered to effectively reach students of chemistry. I am passionate about making chemistry more accessible to every student, no matter how much they struggle or dislike the subject. It is possible to truly understand chemistry!

Chemistry topics range from basic details such as atomic structure to complex concepts such as electrochemistry. Difficulties associated with each of these topics can be resolved through research-based learning strategies. I look forward tailoring our tutoring sessions to increase your knowledge retention and learning confidence.

I travel by Metro from Silver Spring, MD. I will travel to your preferred location to ensure the best use of your time.

Thanks so much for considering me for tutoring. I'll see you soon!

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Algebra 1

In preparation for my own academic degrees, I have completed math classes up through calculus. I have taught algebra via chemistry and physics classes. Most recently, I have tutored algebra.

Since algebra is an essential part of chemistry and physics, my teaching goals are to de-mystify math and train more confident learners.

Algebra 2

In preparation for my own academic degrees, I have completed math classes up through calculus. I have taught algebra via chemistry and physics classes. Most recently, I have tutored algebra.

Algebra 2 is a step up from Algebra 1, the math used most often in chemistry. Algebra 2 is also an important precursor of higher level courses such as calculus.

Chemistry

Chemistry is the study of matter and its interaction ranging from the tiny atoms to compounds in massive chemical systems. It is the study of the energy changes, chemical bonding, and applications of chemical systems. It is the understanding of the material all around us, everyday.

Geometry

In preparation for my own academic degrees, I have completed math classes up through calculus. I have taught algebra via chemistry and physics classes. Most recently, I have tutored algebra.

Algebra-based skills are used in geometry, which includes the computation of angles and sides of polygons and the Pythagorean theorem. Geometry requires the use of logical thinking, which is a valuable skill in any math class. Geometric calculations are the basis of trigonometry.
