Smart Owl Kids are Ready for School. Are Yours?

In addition to our flexible childcare program, we have a formal tutoring program to guide minds to learning and hearts to understanding.

Our licensed K-6 teacher guides students through inquiry-based, real world learning experiences that yields enduring understanding and encourage students to become life-long learners in an ever-changing global society.

Whatever you’ve got your sights set on, that’s merely the beginning. As a Smart Owl, students learn to see beyond the horizon.


“Upon meeting Ashley as a counselor at Camp Wieuca, my daughter spoke fondly of her. She loved spending time with her. She often said that Ashley was her favorite babysitter! Ashley made learning fun throughout the school year and summer. Ashley choreographed dance routines for my daughter’s performances. She also taught lessons using music. At home, I entrusted her with my daughter for three years during the day and overnight. Since then, my daughter has grown and matured into an amazing, intelligent young lady. I could say more about Ashley, but in short, I recommend Ashley to all my neighbors. Words cannot express the thanks that my family has for Ashley.”

“Kids who perform gain skills that extend far beyond the standing ovation. And to that, I say, “Bravo!”


I have an excellent record of tutoring with several years of teaching experience. I believe strong reading, writing, and math skills are the necessary foundation for educational success. My goal is to present the material so that your child understands the basics and transitions to the next level with confidence. I also focus on fluency, comprehension, reading, math, and spelling to build self-esteem and confidence. I taught phonics for several years in an Elementary Classroom setting to construct solid and engaged readers. Many skills are involved in reading, including sounding out letters, blending, phonics, pronunciation, and vocabulary and sight words. I tutor in person or virtually if you prefer.
