    She was super affordable! I had been looking for a teacher with classroom experience and a special ed degree. I only found people that were charging $80-$100 per hr. Ashely is fair, professional and experienced.

    Ashley was very caring and attentive to my daughter. Her coordination with my daughter's teacher was extremely helpful in improving her grades.


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

I like to begin working with a new student by speaking with the parent to obtain their perspective on the challenges and goals ot tutoring. Then I speak with the student individually to gain their perception of the struggles they face and together we set goals for our sessions together. Lastly I like to reach out to the teachers to gain a more specific and professional analysis of the individual needs and current strategies being taught.

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

I recieved my undergraduate degree is social studies and elementary education from Ramapo College. After several years in the classroom, I went back to obtain my special education certification from William Paterson. I ultimately earned my Master's degree from Teachers College, Columbia University.

Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

I charge a flat fee of $50 for an hour of direct student contact time. I do not charge for time taken to prepare for tutoring sessions or contact teachers. I believe that all students should have access to individualize professional support to help them excel academically, which is why charge an affordable rate.

How did you get started teaching?

I have always wanted to teach, since I was in middle school. I was inspired by teachers who helped and inspired me and I wanted to do the same for others.

What types of students have you worked with?

I have worked with students from third grade through twelfth grade in classroom as well as individual tutoring-type settings. In addition, I have worked with a variety of special needs students ranging from ADD/ADHD and Austim Spectrum Disorder to students with severe cognitive impairments, such as Down Syndrome.
