About Ashleigh

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 met many international students from around the globe through this program - some of whom have become my lifelong friends. I graduated Summa Cum Laude in 2014, with Distinction and Departmental Honors, and in 2015, I moved to Turkey to work as a lecturer at a Turkish university through the U.S. Fulbright Scholar English Teaching Assistantship program.

The opportunity to work at a university in Turkey is a direct result of my experiences working as an ESL conversation tutor throughout my academic career. The inspiration I gain from my students is infinite. My classrooms are full of energy and laughter, and all 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.

This, in combination with my extensive classroom experience - as well as formal training in Second Language Acquisition, Theoretical Linguistics, and English Literature and Composition - allows 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. I will be traveling to France for three months this fall, but I am absolutely willing and prepared to continue lessons online through Wyzant's platform while I am abroad. I guarantee your experience with me will be effective and rewarding, whether it's in person or online.

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.
