About Ashley

A lifelong learner, I have always had a passion for reading and writing. I devoured books as a child (and now, when time allows), and I long to share that passion with others. I have over 4 years experience teaching writing, composition, and grammar for a local community college, and have recently started tutoring younger students in reading and writing (both college prep and test prep).

I love tutoring because I love getting to know new students. More than anything, I love the look of pride and satisfaction on a student's face when they finally feel confident in the work they are doing! I want to make reading and writing both fun and enjoyable for my students, so I am always looking for new ways to make these tasks understandable, attainable, and interesting.

I have extensive experience as a technical writer for government and military organizations. I am a skilled editor and proofreader. I also have several years experience in basic writing composition instruction, so I have extensive skills and lessons in how to make students successful as writers.

I would love to get to know you and discuss how we can help you (or your children) accomplish your goals as a reader and / or writer! My availability is flexible, and I am happy to work with unique schedules in order to make you successful!

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.

Microsoft Outlook

I have over 15+ years of experience working with Microsoft Outlook. I have conducted training courses for medical professionals on effective use of Microsoft Outlook, email management, email organization, tips and tools within Outlook, and Outlook setup. I am an advanced Outlook user, capable of setting up and utilizing rules, archiving, and other sophisticated features.

Public Speaking

For the last 5 years, I have worked as a professional trainer, conducting regular courses about clinical information systems, team building, and leadership training. I have extensive leadership training that has forced me to speak in front of public audiences of all sizes (ranging from 5-500 personnel). I have utilized a variety of methods to train myself in public speaking, and I work with military leaders to improve their public speaking as well.
