Qualifications & Experience

Hi! My name is Ashritha and I'm a Research Clinician and Teacher. I have a Master's degree in Clinical Psychology in Education from the Spirituality Mind Body Institute at Teachers College Columbia University in New York City, NY and a Bachelor's in Psychology from Emory University in Atlanta, GA. I specialized in mindfulness based therapy and use mindfulness tools in my teaching practices to promote stress relief and improved learning.

I can also work with students who have ADD/ADHD from my background in clinical psychology. I led group counseling from individuals managing chronic mental illness (e.e.g paranoid schizophrenia, OCD) and am comfortable working with struggling kids/adolescents.

I acquired 8+ years of experience in research and writing education and development. While earning my Master's degree I worked with students one-on-one and in groups at the Graduate Writing Center to advise students on writing development, writing execution, revision, and editing. I advised students on Master's theses, doctoral dissertations, cover letters, resumes, memorandums etc. I also have 8+ years of teaching experience having worked with children of all ages (K-12). I mentored students in an anti-bullying/bullying prevention program in a local Atlanta high school, taught english in underprivileged communities in Costa Rica and Italy, assisted in Kindergarten classrooms in Oxford, GA, and was an assistant dance instructor for 3 years in Atlanta, GA.

I also have 6+ years of research experience. I worked at the Emory University Winship Cancer Institute for 2 years while earning my undergraduate degree, then at TC I worked with the Cross-Cultural Spirituality Lab, and consecutively worked as a Research Scientist with the Columbia University Presbyterian Hospital in association with the New York State Psychiatric Institute.

I will help you develop your academic & writing skills through my experience in education and research and passion for teaching. Please feel free to reach out if you have any questions/concerns and I look forward to working with you!

Ash is a very good Spanish tutor. She engages my son and gives meaningful assignments to help him study. My son is improving in his HS class. He is now confident and motivated to learn a new language.
