About Ashley

After graduating with my B.S. in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology (Marine Biology minor) and B.A. in German from the University of Connecticut, I spent two years working as a chemist for Pfizer Inc. Both now at the College of Charleston and while earning my M.S. in Biology and Ph.D. in Ecological Sciences from Old Dominion University, I have found teaching a wide array of Biology courses and the interaction with students and faculty from diverse backgrounds deeply fulfilling. As a private tutor, I have helped students gain an appreciation of Biology by exploring positive-oriented approaches to equip them with the essential tools to succeed academically.

Employing an instructional repertoire gained by helping hundreds of people of various ages and levels in the lab, field and classroom, I accommodate learning styles to help people reach their educational goals.

Feel free to contact me with questions and/or to schedule lessons. Please note, I have a 24-hour cancellation policy. I'm a reliable, down-to-earth person with expertise in multiple disciplines. It would be my pleasure to share my passion for the natural world while making your life easier!

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.

Zoology

My undergraduate and graduate coursework covered Zoology. Specific courses taken are as follows: Biometry, Comparative Biomechanics, Ecological Sciences Seminars (Deep Ecology, Ecological Sciences Grantsmanship, Marine Biomechanics, and Sensory Biomechanics), Herpetology, Physiological Ecology (Animals), Marine Conservation Summer Institute, Biodiversity and Conservation, Marine Ecology, Evolutionary Ecology, Biology of Lower Vertebrates, Introduction to GIS, Research Methods, Global Change Seminar I & II, Marine Bioacoustics, Animal Physiology, Biological Oceanography, Biology of Fishes, Ecology, Evolutionary Biology, Introduction to Conservation Biology, Introduction to Oceanography, Invertebrate Zoology, Marine Biology, Marine Microbiology, Introduction to Statistics, Sea Turtle Conservation (independent study/internship), Sea Turtle Enrichment Study (my design; independent study/internship), and Marine Mammal and Sea Turtle Rescue (independent study/internship). In addition to General Biology courses, I've taught Applied Biology, Essential Biology, Human Physiology, and Marine Biology. I've also been invited to speak at local schools about marine bioacoustics and marine conservation. Whenever possible, I employ hands-on techniques to help students understand the material.
