ASHLEY TUTORS TEAM FOCUSES ON KINESTHETIC TEACHING
MONTGOMERY COUNTY, Md. – Ashley Tutors (http://www.ashleytutors.com) has hired an energetic and diverse team from six countries to put into practice the Ashley Tutors motto: LIVE! Learning Is Very Entertaining. The fresh tutoring team was assembled to make learning entertaining through the use of kinesthetic learning, a style that takes place when a student carries out a physical activity. Based on the kinesthetic teaching methods of Ashley Fagel, a Maryland certified teacher working in Montgomery County, Md., Ashley Tutors offers in-home, one-on-one academic help in any subject to students in kindergarten through 12th grade.
“The goal of Ashley Tutors is to develop a unique, individualized and very interactive strategy to meet the needs of each student,” said Josh Chernikoff, the Ashley Tutors team member who personally interviews, investigates and selects each individual tutor. “Because the teaching method is so interactive, it is important to have highly educated and highly energetic instructors. So, it is no accident that our team is as diverse as the subjects we tutor all over the Washington, D.C. area.”
Every tutor on the Ashley Tutors team works with Fagel on how to best utilize kinesthetic learning and speaks with Fagel each Sunday to review their last tutoring session. Any member of Ashley Tutors can make everything from homework help to an abstract subject entertaining in their one-on-one sessions with the use of kinesthetic methods.
“An elementary school student I tutor had a very tough time focusing on her lessons,” said Joe Pacelli, a senior at Georgetown University excelling in the McDonough School of Business. “After taking two-minute breaks to stretch or play ‘Simon Says’ she comes back completely focused and excited to learn. These breaks are what kinesthetic learning is all about. It is hard for anybody to sit still for an hour and a five minute stretch time during a session helps my student’s concentrate longer in the end.”
