Ashleigh Pedersen has over eight years of teaching experience. Her time in the classroom has ranged from teaching college courses at the University of Pittsburgh to middle and high school writing classes at the Khabele School in downtown Austin. She is an experienced Advanced Placement (AP) English teacher, and has been certified to teach International Baccalaureate (IB) English, as well. She continues to teach a wide variety of writing workshops, including—but not limited to—college essay writing for high school students, summer creative writing camps for middle schoolers, and a creative writing workshop series for middle school girls.
While she loves tutoring students of any age, Ashleigh is especially skilled at working one-on-one with middle school students who grapple with organizational, learning, and/or social challenges. Additionally, she excels at making lasting personal connections with both young people and adults—in fact, many of her current tutoring clients have been working with her for a number of years already, and the children and adults who attend her writing workshops often return for more!
Ashleigh is also a fiction writer, with work featured in New Stories from the South, The Kenyon Review, The Iowa Review, Design Observer, and The Silent History. Eager to create more time for working on her novel, while still teaching and encouraging others to write, she said a fond farewell to the Khabele School and founded Write Well Austin in the summer of 2014. Her passion for what she does is readily apparent in her tutoring sessions, writing workshops, writing camps, and passing conversation! Ashleigh endeavors to make Write Well Austin reflective of her personal values and strengths, offering a friendly, encouraging, and professional service to individuals and families.
