About Ashley

I have experience tutoring students of all kinds of majors and backgrounds, including ESL/ELL students, in the Writing Center at UNLV. I can help out with all kinds of writing assignments (including essays, annotated bibliographies, and graduate theses, or just outlining and brainstorming, to give you some ideas), no matter the subject. I have a Bachelor's degree in English, got excellent grades in all of my English courses throughout my college career (only one B, the rest As!), and when I took the SAT I scored in the 96th percentile for Reading and 94th percentile for Writing.

I'm interested in giving my students the tools to develop their writing abilities and succeed on their own in the future. I love writing and I find it enjoyable to share my knowledge with others and help them learn and improve.

I'm also very familiar with the Japanese language, though not fluent, and would be eager to provide help with that, from vocabulary and hiragana/katakana to grammar and kanji. Additionally, I've taken Spanish classes over the years and can assist you with the basics.

I started studying the Japanese language ten years ago. I'm not fluent, but I'm proficient and can comfortably read comic books and watch TV shows in Japanese. I have personal experience with translating song lyrics, blog posts, articles, and even a picture book from Japanese to English. If you're taking Japanese in high school or college, or just learning on your own, and would like some help, I can assist you with that.

I have always had a passion and knack for English. I am excellent with reading, writing, language mechanics, and analysis of literature. That's what led me to get a Bachelor's degree in English. I've written university-level essays analyzing Shakespeare, Victorian poetry, and other literature, I scored in the 96th percentile for Reading and 94th percentile for Writing on the SAT, and I worked at the Writing Center in UNLV helping university students with their assignments, so I'm confident that I can help you out with whatever you may need when it comes to the subject of English.

I have open availability at the moment and can come help you out at pretty short notice. I'll be honest with you and say that I'm a bit shy, but I'm also good at what I do. Send me a message about whatever you're looking to work on and we can see if my abilities and your needs will be a good match.

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.

English

I am a native speaker of the English language and possess a Bachelor of Arts in English. My GPA at UNLV was 3.78 upon graduation. I have consistently scored well in English courses, receiving As in all but one (in which I got a B). I am proficient in all aspects of the English language.

Grammar

I have an excellent understanding of grammar. I scored in the 96th percentile in Reading on the SAT. At the UNLV Writing Center, I helped out ESL/ELL students with aspects of the grammar of the English language. I am confident that I can help both native and non-native speakers of English with grammar.

Japanese

I started learning the Japanese language about ten years ago. I took two courses in high school, and only time constraints prevented me from minoring in Japanese. I have the ability to read comic books and watch TV shows in Japanese and understand them. I am not fluent, but I have a very good command of vocabulary, grammar, and kanji. I am eager to help out anyone who has Japanese tutoring needs.

Literature

I possess a Bachelor of Arts in English, during which I took a variety of courses such as World Literature, American Literature, Shakespeare's Tragedies, Victorian Poetry, and others. I have a wide knowledge of literature gained throughout my education and leisure reading. I am familiar with many classics that would be typically read in different English classes. I have also analyzed many texts and written many essays about various books, short stories, and poems. For these reasons, I am confident that I can tutor anyone who needs help with literature.

Proofreading

I am very quick to notice errors in texts and figure out how to fix them. I have often throughout my life caught mistakes in printed texts that escaped even the editors' careful eyes, because spelling, grammar, and other errors tend to simply jump out at me. I am a detail-oriented person who understands the workings of the English language, and for that reason proofreading is one of my strengths. My time at the UNLV Writing Center was not spent assisting with proofreading, as consultants were primarily meant to encourage writers to develop their own skills and catch their own errors, but I can absolutely do this.

Reading

I possess a Bachelor's degree in English, which meant I had to exercise critical reading skills in order to analyze various texts. I know how to read successfully to accomplish tasks and come to an understanding of the material. I can help others do the same by allowing them to gain techniques to understand information better.

SAT Reading

I scored in the 96th percentile on the Reading portion of the SAT. I have had advanced reading abilities since I was in elementary school. I had to apply my reading skills all the time in English courses, during which I regularly analyzed complex texts. For these reasons and more, I am confident that I can tutor students in SAT Reading.

SAT Writing

I scored in the 94th percentile on the Writing portion of the SAT. My writing skills are evident through my English degree, for which I had to write many essays, and my time spent working at the UNLV Writing Center. For these reasons and more, I am confident that I can tutor students in SAT Writing.

Vocabulary

I possess a strong, expansive vocabulary. This is evident through my ability to successfully write university-level essays, for which I consistently received excellent grades. My English degree is proof that I have a good vocabulary.

Writing

I possess a Bachelor's degree in English, and earning this degree consisted of a considerable amount of writing. I also worked as a consultant in the Writing Center at UNLV to help other students with their own writing. I am interested in assisting students to develop their unique writing abilities and gain the skills to steadily improve their writing in the future.
