After Ashley graduated from SMU in 2010 with her undergraduate degree, she looked for opportunities in education where she could work with students on an individual basis. At the same time, she started looking at various tutoring companies and was unhappy with the status quo. She was shocked at the low compensation, and that leadership had no background in education. She knew she loved education, and her passion was truly helping students however she could. She decided to keep tutoring on her own, since she has always had an entrepreneurial spirit.
A short time later, many families were asking her for help in subjects she does not specialize in, or asking her if she knew anyone that did. Since she was heavily invested in those children’s success, she knew she would be the best person to screen and coordinate potential new tutors for these families.
Fast-forward 10 years, Tutor Revolution now contracts anywhere from 10-15 tutors at any given time, we are an online nationwide tutoring company, and we have helped hundreds of students and families achieve academic success. Individually, Ashley returned to school and obtained her Master’s in Education in 2018.
While not all of our tutors are degreed or certified educators, all have a passion for helping others, enjoy mentoring, and are content masters. Ashley's background is in Special Education, so she is always keeping an eye out for any issues that the student/family may not be aware of. The diverse group of tutors enables us to have specialties that broadly cover all subjects from K-12th & college. We are most utilized and known for our expertise in math, science, and ACT/SAT prep.
What sets us apart from other providers is that Tutor Revolution thrives on collaboration, and we constantly communicate with our tutors. Furthermore, we do not look for tutors after we have been contacted; we only place students with tutors we have already recruited and that have undergone at least two practice sessions, in addition to other hiring procedures. We keep the tutors’ pictures and biographies online so parents know more about the person coming to their home. Since tutoring has to be a good fit, we only hire engaging individuals.
The most important measure of success is our students’ achievements. Student success varies greatly. We feel very successful when we hear we have closed a gap of knowledge, a student has shown growth or a spark of interest, or is making better grades. We love motivating our students and modeling how to be a successful learner! Our aim is to show a student that learning, or a content area, can be enjoyable… perhaps even fun!
Each year Tutor Revolution sponsors an educator grant and awards two high school student scholarships in Ashley's hometown and former hometown. Additionally, Ashley mentors weekly at an at-risk high school and provides free tutoring (for children, teens, and adults) to two non-profits in the Dallas-Fort Worth area.
