We are ALL Certified Teachers! We have a pure passion and love for education and children!
I enjoy being a resource for others. I love seeing the 'ah-ha" moment! When a child finally "gets it" it makes my day!
I look forward to working with families in the Washington Metro Area and helping them get ABOVE GRADE LEVEL!
I can't even explain how Essential Foundations has made such a wonderful impact on my sons life. His confidence has increased tremendously. He now attempts to read everything! My son was missing the basic phonics, which I guess they forgot to teach him at the school he was attending. However, once she taught him the basic phonics he went from a reading level 4 to level 10 in less than 6 weeks. He is now reading on a level 12 and I love the fact that her goal is to not only get him on grade level, but above grade level. I love the fact that they have a flexible schedule. My son plays sports and sometimes games would conflict, however, we were able to make up missed meetings. The communication between the tutor and the parent was excellent. I would recommend their services to everyone
My son has been attending tutoring sessions with Essential Foundations for some time now. Within the first month, I have seen progress in his reading skill which triggered confidence in his overall academics. So as a PROUD MOM I want to say Thank You Essential Foundations for providing the Foundations Essential in my son success.
Essential Foundation Tutoring has been a true blessing to my daughter. When she started Essential Foundation Tutoring, my daughter was reading at a level 4, which was not on her grade level. When it came to reading, my daughter would get very upset and start crying because it was hard for her and she felt embarrassed. Now in just two months time she is reading at a level 10, on grade level, and is excited to read. Her confidence in herself and her reading has sky rocketed. Her teacher has also commented several times on the improvement of her reading and her self-confidence. Thank you Essential Foundations Tutoring, especially Ashlee, for building the foundation and the confidence that my daughter will need to excel in her academic years.
The first step when meeting a new family is to offer them a FREE 30 Minute Consultation. This is where I will come to a predesignated location to meet with the family face-to-face and discuss their concerns and expections of tutoring, as well as to go over our program.
If a client decides to move forward, our first session is deadicated to getting to know our new student and to diagnostic to gauge where they are. Once we have a baseline, we create a rigorous, fun and motivating program to get them ABOVE GRADE LEVEL!
