I have a number of Bible classes and Religion classes under my belt. I took Theology classes through an accredited Bible Discipleship class. I have also studied Apologetics as well as old and new testament studies of The Bible. Furthermore, I have studied religion and philosophy in college as well.
I took Old and New Testament studies as well as systematic theology and other Bible courses including missions and international and language studies.

In addition to my university and college studies, I have had the privilege to travel to China where I met with a number of professors and students discussing atheism, Buddhism, Taoism, Confucianism and other Eastern practices.
Furthermore, I joined up with a few Arabic families in my community where I was able to see cultural and religious practices that many do not get to experience and observe being apart from it.

Blessings! :)

Great teacher I have two granddaughters that wanted to learn to play our family piano. Ashley has been great keeping these two (5yr old and 9yr old) interested and enjoying what they are learning. Could not have had a better experience or teacher. Having Ashley as a teacher has made all of us enjoy music in our home again!!

I am a Applied Mathematics and Stem tutor ; I like to help the student to understand conceptual learning in Algebra 1 and problem solving, I think once the students can master the basic mechanics of learning literal equations and learn the manipulating of variables ,The student will realize Algebra 1 will become like playing a game and its main function is to solve for the unknown variable, plus understanding how graphs are related to the functions students performs and finally received the knowledge of method solving which is the big picture of any kind of Algebra learning skills.

DAVID
A talented, patient teacher, Gretchen epitomizes the best qualities for musical instruction. Her technical knowledge of music theory is by far the most complete and deepest of anyone I have encountered. She has encouraged the gradual emerging of a latent talent talent I never knew I had as I was always discouraged from attempting any musical education.

I have a Bachelor's degree in Mathematics from St. Norbert College, and I am currently studying for a PhD in statistics at University of California, Irvine. My goal is to encourage students to enjoy STEM subjects, especially mathematical sciences because they are such a beautiful way to understand the world. Math is so much more than algebra and geometry, and, if it is truly understood, even those subjects can be illuminating in how we understand the world.

"Awesome tutor! Breaks down concepts to make it easily digestible and works with your schedule. He gives you great tips that you can't learn from a book. He is very laid back and that helps with the crazy chaos of MCAT studying. Overall, well rounded in the subjects of the MCAT and would work with him again in the future if I needed. I would defintely recommend him for future MCAT test takers."

She adjusts her lessons to your personality and the homework is never boring. She's dynamic, attentive, funny and attaches importance to immerse you in an experience of American culture. With Alexa, you will learn much more than the English langage!"

She's very patient & knows exactly how to make everything make sense & how to break things down in order give proper analysis in whatever she teaches from piano to singing to basic music theory. She was able to answer any questions I had in full detail. She's a very warm & welcoming person that loves to teach & can do so very well. I highly recommend her as an instructor.

This can be tough for budding wordsmiths of all ages - so how can you encourage your kids and help them understand the writing techniques involved?
