About Ashleigh

EXPERIENCE: I first began working as an ESL conversation tutor at the University of Georgia in 2011, where I was studying Linguistics and English Literature. I worked with international students from around the globe through this program - some of whom have become my lifelong friends. I graduated Summa Cum Laude with Distinction and Departmental Honors in 2014, and in 2015, I moved to Turkey to work as an English instructor at a Turkish university through the U.S. Fulbright Scholar English Teaching Assistantship program. Since then, I have been working with students one-on-one through Wyzant's platform.

TEACHING STYLE: The inspiration I gain from my students is infinite. My classrooms are full of energy and laughter, and the positive feedback I've received from my students has been reflected and reaffirmed in their test scores and improved speaking abilities. I find this line of work exceedingly rewarding, and I invest a lot of time, thought, and energy into ensuring my students' success.

I am especially skilled at picking up on the habits of my students - i.e. noticing patterns of mistakes and working to correct them. This is true for both ESL students and native speakers who are working to improve their reading and writing skills, for a standardized test or otherwise. I have an intuitive ability to evaluate the comprehension and stress level of my students, and I am very adaptable to the needs of each individual. One-on-one tutoring, as opposed to a classroom environment, is the ideal environment for tailoring to a students' needs.

OVERVIEW: My extensive classroom and one-on-one experience, my formal training in Second Language Acquisition, Theoretical Linguistics, and English Literature and Composition, and my deep passion for a variety of languages and cultures allow me to be a very flexible, efficient, and perceptive tutor. I'm thrilled to be sharing my expertise and experience with students in the greater Atlanta area!

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.

ESL/ESOL

I have a degree in English and Linguistics with a focus on Second Language Acquisition. I have also worked as a private ESL tutor for international graduate students, and as an ESL Lecturer at Gaziosmanpasa University.
