Ashley says: “I enjoy working with kids because of their positive outlook! They keep me young at heart. I first wanted to become a tutor because I love teaching and wanted to be able to work with kids one-on-one outside of my typical classroom settings. I think a tutor must be patient, humorous, and sensitive to their kids’ individual needs. My favorite subject has always been reading and writing. When not working with students, I enjoy reading, traveling, spending time with my two cats and turtle, going for walks, and attending concerts. I also enjoy yoga as a way to wind down from a busy teaching schedule. Spending time with friends and family, including my two godsons, is also very important to me.”
