I live to tutor! Dedicated, innovative, and performance-driven, I specialize in assisting high school students in achieving higher SAT and ACT scores. During the past fourteen years, I have been training students to think systemically and to explain their problem-solving processes. Using a diagnostic-prescriptive tutoring approach, I create cumulative, custom quizzes to review content and timed drills to increase accuracy. To build confidence in their critical thinking skills, I also encourage students to ‘think like a test-maker’ and design their own test questions.

My aim is to exceed my student’s and parent’s expectations. I provide exceptional service to my students and parents with well-planned, interactive, engaging lessons. I am very open to feedback and suggestion and never bill for a lesson in which the student or parent is not 100% satisfied with my tutoring. I am extremely flexible with my time and offer a two-hour cancellation policy. I look forward to speaking with you soon and assisting you in achieving your child’s educational goals!

I am highly qualified to tutor elementary mathematics; as the former Associate Director of Huntington Learning Center, I helped elementary students with their customized math curriculum. I also taught the fundamentals of elementary math at The Ivymount School in Rockville, MD. My primary tutoring approach is the Concrete-Representational-Abstract (CRA) Approach, which focuses on manipulatives first, then symbols, and lastly numbers. I am very patient and persistent in my math sessions, since excellence is achieved with ‘practice’.

Extremely knowledgeable and patient tutor

Ashley has taught me to work through some math issues with homework and reviewing and even short quizzes. I like that if Ashley isn't familiar with one's learning style, she quickly adapts to the learning you're comfortable with. She makes sure you have a clear understanding.

Amazing Tutor!!!

Ashley is by far the best tutor I have had the pleasure of working with. With me being out of school for almost 8 years and pretty much having to be refreshed on alot of Algebra 1, Algebra 2, and Geometry was a challenge I thought ,but not with Ashley. She was able to teach me all the fundamental skills and best practices to help me achieve my Taks test goal, in which I had to take in less than 2 weeks. Feeling discouraged was not allowed. Ashley continuously stayed positive ,and made sure whatever I did not understand was turned into a strong skill for me. When I took the test everything Ashley taught me was there. I truly felt confident! She is truly a kind, patience, and great teacher. Test prep or just help in school she does it all! I would recommend her to anyone seeking help in math period.
