About this tutor

Hi! My name is Ashlee and I am finishing my degree and preparing to teach grades 7-12. I take every opportunity to show others the wonderful science all around us! Ask me your biology-related questions and I will not just help you understand the material, I will get you EXCITED about it! Science is AWESOME!

I really enjoy helping others understand the science that is all around them. It allows them to appreciate the world we live in. I especially love helping students that are really struggling because I want to show them that they can do this and I'm here to help them!

FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

I like to get to know a little bit about them. Using hobbies and interests can be a great way to use analogies to better understand other concepts. I also like to learn about their study habits, learning preferences and confidence. Every student is very different! 


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I am finishing my undergraduate studies in cellular and developmental biology and am preparing for the teaching credential program. I am also a leader for a student led program for organic chemistry. I have many years of informal teaching as well! 


How did you get started teaching?

I have always loved sharing my knowledge with others. I encourage others to constantly ask questions and I make it my mission to help them find the answers! 


What types of students have you worked with?

Mostly college students, but also elementary school aged children.


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Look for someone who stays current on scientific research. New discoveries are happening all the time. You really want to know that you are getting the most accurate information. Make sure the person you choose is not afraid to say they don't know something. There is so much information out there, it is impossible to know everything. 


What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

Step one: Check your brain! Even if you don't know the exact answer, recalling information related to the question will strengthen your understanding.

Step two: Check your notes! Look through your notes and other activities to try and formulate the answer. You can also discuss it with a friend. 

Step three: Use your other resources! Look in your textbook or ask a teacher for help finding the answer. You can also use internet sources, but watch out for accuracy!
