About Ashley


Bio

I am forever a lifetime student and learner. I want to help others learn and respect the absolute wonderful magic that exists within literature both classic and modern. I want to help you work through the boredom and frustration and help you see the cultural, personal, and collective value of these works!

We have all been irked by that picky teacher/professor knocking us down a grade for a comma error or lack luster writing style. I am here to do all I can to help you prevent that...

We have all been irked by that picky teacher/professor knocking us down a grade for a comma error or lack luster writing style. I am here to do all I can to help you prevent that downgrade!

I always consider teaching a symbiotic event. I teach you in improving in your academic and critical thinking skills, while you teach me how to improve my teaching. We will work together to capture your academic goals.

Literature

I have a Bachelor's degree from Northern Illinois University and a Master's degree from Roosevelt University (December 2013). I have read Tale of Two Cities a couple times. Although I have not written an analysis on this book in particular, I have written many critical analysis papers on a variety of texts. Most recently I've analyzed the subject of movement and space as well as female behavior in the fairy tale of Snow White entitled: Grand Narratives of Femininity in Snow White. While at Northern Illinois University I studied English with an emphasis on Literature. Over my academic career I have developed the skills to critically engage with a text, delve deeper into themes that connect the plot, as well as how to be open to interpretation. In other words, every time one reads a book, it should reveal another facet of itself. Writing a term paper on any subject can be difficult, but when the art of a text is analyzed and engaged with, he easier it is to create a valid and sustained argument.
