About Ashley

I have always spent my free time looking after, teaching and mentoring children. In high school I would spend my free time at the local Boys & Girls Club tutoring elementary students (ages 5-11) in English and math. I would also spend my summers as a camp counselor at Joseph C. Carter Park Camp teaching dance classes to young boys and girls (ages 4-11). While in college, I also served as a tutor to a local boys basketball team. During the summertime, throughout my college years, I continued working as a counselor for campers (age 11-18). Once I graduated from college, I moved to South Korea for a year to teach English to elementary school children. I was the homeroom teacher for students age 7-8 (teaching English, math, science & art), however I also taught English to a variety of age groups ranging from 3-13. During my free time while living in Seoul, I provided free tutoring sessions 2-3 times a week for high school and university students looking to improve their speaking, reading and comprehension; in both casual and formal conversation settings. I also edited resumes, short stories, and various translated documents. Today, I often volunteer as an art instructor at Kaleidoscope Arts Foundation, whenever I am in Bermuda.

What I love most about tutoring and teaching children, is the chance to be a part of another person’s intellectual foundation & development. There have been so many influential teachers, coaches & mentors who have helped me become the person I am today. I just hope that I too can give back and make an impact on someone else’s life as well. After all--what we learn becomes a major part of who we are!

English & literature has always been a major part of my life. In high school I often volunteered as a tutor to students younger than me; aiding with speaking & reading comprehension, as well as proofreading, pronunciation, grammar and vocabulary. I was even named a Miami Herald Silver Knight Honorable Mention in the category of Literature 2009. In college, my passion for learning continued as I majored in English Literature & Anthropology.

I have worked with (K-6th) students for over a decade now as either a tutor, mentor, art/dance instructor, camp counselor &/or teacher.

Apart from working with (3-5 year old) ESL students for a year. I have also taken multiple linguistics courses at both Howard University and The American International University in London, England.

No matter what age you are, where you are from, or what level of education you have received, it's never to late to learn! In the words of John Cotton Dana, “[Those] who dare to teach, must never cease to learn.” So thank you for your time and consideration. I look forward to learning with you in the near future :)
