About Ashley

The drive for scholarship is what motivates me to be the best I can be for my students. I have been teaching Middle School for the past 17 years. My work extends to high school and college students. Graduating Magna Cum Laude from Kenyon College with work in History, Politics, and Literature of Modern Europe and a Master's Degree in Secondary Education from DePaul University, I am capable getting students to where they need to be. I also am one of the top points earners on two educational forums. These forums allow me to reach a wide number of students around the world.

I am able to tutor in History, Literature, Political Science, as well as the writing process. I insist on high standards in both students and myself so that both of us can progress further on the path towards scholarship. I hope I am able to share this with you as a tutor in helping you grow as a student and thinker.

I am well versed in literature from around the world and can help students to understand difficult and challenging literature. This translates into the writing process instruction, a topic in which I am well versed and capable. In short, I can help to make students better writers and readers.

My certification is in History and background has specialized in History. My work on both Graduate and Undergraduate levels has had emphasis in the history and literature of the modern setting.

In the final analysis, I am confident that I can help you progress on the arduous path of scholarship. It will not be the work of a day and it is going to be difficult, to paraphrase Swami Vivekananda. However, I believe that I can help you make progress and improvement in your studies. I encourage you to reach out to me for assistance. I assure you that you will grow intellectually as a result.

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.

Basketball

I have been coaching middle school basketball for the last 15 years. I have coached both Girls' and Boys' basketball teams.

Political Science

My work in political science and political theory stretches back to my undergraduate work. I graduated from Kenyon College with a synoptic major in the politics, philosophy, literature, and history of modern Europe. It culminated in a thesis on the French political theorist, Benjamin Constant. As a graduate student, my work focused on the work of Rushdie, Fuentes, and American educational legislation in the wake of the September 11 attacks.

Social Studies

I am certified in the State of Illinois to teach Social Studies. I have been teaching the subject for the last 17 years at sixth, seventh, and eighth grade levels.
