Hello, my name is Al Ash. I am a retired career elementary teacher. I worked for over twenty years for the SAUSD.(Santa Ana Unified School District.) I taught at-risk, ESL students in all grades K-5. I have substitute taught in grades K-12. I was a master and mentor teacher which means I had direct responsibility over 15-20 teachers throughout my career. Teaching them class management, lesson planning, and most of all how to reach each student, for I firmly believe that each student has the ability to succeed in school.

After I retired, I spent time as a freelance tutor and substitute teacher in the Charter Schools of Riverside and San Bernardino. I enjoy the one on one relationship of tutoring. Being able to watch without distraction how a student works and thinks. This is where we can find the right style or method for that particular student.

I have had over 500 hours of professional development and earned a Master's degree in Reading and Literacy in 2007. I have been trained in numerous testing taking strategies and methods.
Most of all I love helping students overcome and succeed.
