I am a doctoral student at the University of Chicago, pursuing a degree in English Language and Literature. I have several years experience working with students to improve their writing and to develop clear, confident prose that showcases their insights and unique minds. I offer rigorous, personalized lessons in composition and literature. These lessons range from work on the fundamentals of writing (structure, grammar, and vocabulary) to advanced topics such as poetic scansion, close reading and interpretation, experimental style, and persuasion.

In my own research, I draw from an expansive archive that includes work within digital media, computer science and artificial intelligence, and literature written in English from medieval period to the present. I am able to draw on this wide breadth of knowledge to support students working in all subfields of English literature, in the humanities more broadly (philosophy, history, classics, political science, etc.), and in STEM fields.

WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT FROM ME
I am a patient, attentive instructor who will guide you through each step of the writing process and will provide detailed written comments and suggestions on submitted work. In addition, I will work with you to develop effective and sustainable writing and studying habits. Throughout, your needs and your goals will guide the work that we do together.

As a writing tutor and editor, I work with high school and college students on:
- Academic research papers and essays
- Undergraduate application essays
- Graduate School application essays
- Personal statements
- Scholarship application essays

As an English literature tutor, I work with high school and college students on:
- Content analysis and close-reading
- Stylistic analysis
- Academic research papers and essays
- Critical secondary reading

I support both native English speakers and non-native, English language learners.

Please contact me to book a lesson, request editing support, or discuss the tutoring process in more detail.

Considerate and Smart

Ashleigh helped transform my writing from boring disconnected sentences into a well connected and meaningful essay. I greatly appreciated the time and consideration she put into helping me.

Leila, 1 lesson with Ashleigh

Excellent

Ashleigh did an excellent job with my son. She took the time to review what lessons he needed to complete, and which were missing. He was reluctant to take a session, but after his first session, he said “Ok, I would like to take more sessions.”

Felice, 14 lessons with Ashleigh

Writing

She an amazing tutor. I highly recommend taking classes with Ashleigh. I took a writing session with her and i will definitely take another with her again. She is very good at explaining and very patient.

Afnan, 8 lessons with Ashleigh

Organized and knowledgeable!

Ashleigh taught me how to better organize my thoughts and helped me write a rough outline for my college admission essay. She gave me honest feedback about the words to use...and not use for better convection. I contacted her early in the morning and had a session later that night. Would highly recommend!

Aidan gives her 5 stars

Ashleigh has engaged my senior in writing for his college essay by giving him tasks to do and really great feed back on the writing he has done all ready. It has really motivated his work. He said she makes what he needs to do very clear. They have only had to meetings but he wanted other people to know!
