About Ashley

While in college pursuing my undergraduate degree, I tutored students in both English as a Second Language and German. This was something I enjoyed doing so much that I decided to go a step further and get my Master's degree in Teaching English as a Second Language. I have a true passion for teaching and love meeting and communicating with people from different cultures and backgrounds.

While my main focus is on language, I have a minor in History and three concentrations in German Literature, Culture, and Cinema. I received high marks in all of my literature classes and history classes and I continue to learn on my own by reading as much as I can about anything and everything. I love books, listening to and playing music, writing, and films. I try to incorporate as much as I can into my lessons so that my students stay interested and learn a little extra about the subjects in a fun and exciting way.

As a bilingual, I see English from a unique perspective. I am able to recognize potential stumbling blocks for non-native speakers and I enjoy going the distance to describe ambiguous text or complicated text in literature.

German isn't just a hobby of mine but a true soul consuming passion! I live for the language, use it daily, watch films in it, and enjoy discussing it's unique qualities. I have found a few specific ways to reach even some of the most resistant learners so that they not only learn enough for their class requirements but also retain the information.

I have a unique way to weave not only fact about what has occurred in Europe but in a narrative that captivates and stays with the student. My own concentration is in German history years 1871-1961 and I have taken many other special topic classes that provide me with a plethora of real and factual information with which to relate to students and help them understand the grander scheme of history and this specific one's theme. Being tutored by me in this area is not sitting and learning from a book but being engaged in a lecture that provides in depth feedback that one sometimes lacks in a classroom with other competing learners.

Contact me and let's start learning! You won't regret it. In fact, you'll come away with stories, skills, and confidence that will help you as you go through your educational lifetime!
