Great tutor!!

My daughter says this is the best tutor she's ever had. She enjoys how things are explained in a way she can comprehend them. We're only one lesson in, but are definitely sticking with her.

Algebra 2 lesson

Ashley was great- super knowledgeable and wanted to know any work or what she could do to prepare for our session with my daughter. Very helpful and she gave us all the info for our online session and gave detailed notes after the session regarding what was worked on

Knowledgeable and personable tutor!

Ashley has been a great addition to assisting our child "catch back up" after a year+ of virtual learning, where although our teachers did a wonderful job, some "slide" in mathematics did occur. Ashley was fantastic assessing where additional skills needed reinforcing and explaining concepts in an engaging and understandable way. We look forward to continuing to build a relationship to help our child keep up in mathematics and beyond!
