About Ashley

I am passionate about continuing my education and keeping up with the latest techniques to effectively teach. I am currently working to receive a Master's in Curriculum and Instruction. I am homeschooling my four- and one-year-old during this time. Previous to starting a family, I worked at a school for children with special learning needs. Students in my class were ages pre k-fifth grade. Several students had dyslexia, ADHD and autism. All of my students excelled and developed a love for learning. Due to my experience teaching in a classroom setting, I am comfortable teaching in small groups if that is desired. I have also tutored one-on-one for about eight years.
While traditional methods of teaching have there time and place, I prefer a much more hands-on approach to learning. I incorporate technology into lessons as much as possible. Students of this generation become excited and tend to retain more information when they are taught through their interests. It is my goal to find the best way the individual learns and teach them in that manner.
It is my belief all people can and will learn if given the right tools and the right motivation. I enjoy tutoring for the one on one aspect. I love being able to provide students with the tools and motivation they may be lacking in order for them to grow as learners. There is nothing greater than helping a student become confident in their ability and watching their success rise.

Since I am currently working on obtaining my Master's I am writing many papers varying in length. Every assignment I have completed has received 100%. Also, I have worked with several college age students who have asked me to review their papers. I helped these students make the necessary revisions while teaching mini lessons centered on the areas of weakness. At an elementary level, I designed an implemented a writing program which encompassed learning how to write, familiarizing them with the different genres of writing, grammar and the entire editing process.

My experience in an elementary classroom demonstrates my competence in tutoring students in all areas of Elementary Education. I designed and implemented lesson plans for all subjects, differentiating instruction as needed. I have an enormous updated repertoire of techniques for students of all ages. I prefer a hands on method rather than worksheets. I engage the student in the entire learning process.

I look forward to hearing from you and helping you achieve success in your studies!

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have a Professional Educator's Certificate from the State of Florida Department of Education. The certification is for grades K-6. For two years I taught at a private school for children with special learning needs. I taught grades K-5. During that time, I developed and implemented lesson plans for all subject areas. Aside from having my own class, I have tutored elementary students for eight years. Also, I am currently working to obtain my Master's Degree in Curriculum and Instruction for grades k-6.

Handwriting

During my time teaching at a private school, I created and implemented a writing program for the entire elementary department. This school did not have a writing program until I created it. From what I have acquired from personal teaching experiences and courses in my Master's program, reading and writing go hand in hand. I use literature to demonstrate key concepts followed by the use of a lot of hands on methods. A few examples are: writing in sand, stamping and tracing, dry erase boards, and computer apps. This makes the learning enjoyable and more concrete. I also use the Lucy Calkin's writing workshop. This method is heavily used in the public school system in Florida. When showing the school, the Director always brought parents into my classroom because my students were writing above grade level and had amazing stories displayed.

Ashley is very clear and gives great direction. She works very carefully with my daughter ensuring that she understands what she's being taught/shown. My daughter feels confident after each session.
