About Ashleigh

Struggling to figure out those ancient languages or learn which dates are important for a history class? Have no fear! It's very easy to break the "code" of how these subjects work!

I'm a current graduate student at UCLA studying Latin and Greek with an emphasis on history. I love languages and history, and it would be a shame for a student to be discouraged from these great fields. I have tutored students (ages 9-17) and taught introductory college courses in both Latin and Greek; as well, I have worked as a teaching assistant for Roman and Greek civilization classes, which emphasize knowing how historical and cultural events interact and influence each other.

My tutoring practices must of course vary depending on the age and skill of the student. In one case, I helped create a Latin curriculum for a student who had no other opportunity to learn the language. For students who are struggling in a class, I believe in working with the texts the teacher assigned and supplementing this knowledge with my own materials. Especially with the languages, it's important for students to see that the grammar works in a logical way and that translating is almost like solving a puzzle. I also firmly believe that having students practice reading the language out loud increases facility and understanding of how syntax works. For students needing tutoring in history, tutoring practices must of course vary depending on age and course. AP courses demand different skills, and sometimes improved grades can come from knowing which sources to use and how to draw connections between evidence.

I like to spend part of our first meeting understanding what goals a student has for our tutoring commitment and learning how the student has gone about studying and working prior to our meeting. Once I understand their goals and previous working methods, I can draw up a plan for future learning and studying. If you think we would work well together, please feel free to contact me!

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Classics

I am working on my PhD in Classics and have been a teaching assistant for various Classics courses at UCLA the past six years. I have just taught my own course on myth the past summer.

Greek

I am currently a 3rd year PhD student at UCLA in Classical philology. I have studied ancient Greek for more than 7 years now. My speciality is in Classical Greek literature (particularly the historians, tragedy, and Pindar), and I wrote my MA thesis on Xenophon and Pindar. I also have experience tutoring a 13 year old boy in ancient Greek for preparation in the National Greek Exam.

Knowledgeable and Energetic Latin Tutor

Ashleigh is a wonderful Latin tutor. Not only is she extremely knowledgeable, but she is something far rarer—a teacher. She is enthusiastic and passionate about the subject and has a way of getting my son excited about it, as well. She took time to discuss our short and long term goals for the subject and provided numerous supplemental materials to reinforce classroom lessons. I recommend her with
