I use my knowledge of long-term learning to do more than tutor, but to also foster a love of learning. My goal is to help my students maintain what they learn well after the lessons are over.
"Maybe you can stay for ... 8 more minutes." - Kindergarten student
"She knows a lot about a lot of things." - 7th-grade student
"I couldn't have gotten an A without you." - College studnet
If this sounds like the kind of tutor you want to work with, then book an appointment. I look forward to meeting you!
American Sign Language lessons in West Hills, CA.
I'm Ashley! I graduated Cum Laude from UCSD with a Bachelors's degree in Media Arts and a minor in Language Studies with a focus on American Sign Language. I have been tutoring English and ASL for the last five years and absolutely love helping students overcome their insecurities or fears in a subject that they struggle in. I have worked with all kinds of students from young elementary to adults learning English as a second language and have learned that every student learns differently, so I'm always excited to figure out how best to structure lessons or the way I explain material in order to help them to succeed!
I'm a very patient person, easy to talk to, and am always willing to go out of my way to provide extra help if needed. I'm a film major, not an English teacher, but I tutor because I love watching students gain confidence in a subject that they struggle in. Whether it's grasping a new element of material or moving up a reading level, I get just as excited as they do.
I am an ASL minor and have been signing for eight years. I absolutely love the language and am always excited to see new students choosing to learn it! At UCSD I helped found and was on the board of the ASL club which provided free tutoring sessions, homework help, and conversation practice for ASL students that needed extra help or wanted to improve their fluency. I also volunteered for a program on campus called Language Conversation Tables which allowed students to practice their language skills or learn a new language from their peers.
I want to benefit the students I work with as much as possible and therefore welcome any resources or suggestions that students or parents can provide. I am easy to reach and will always provide quick responses. Please feel free to contact me with any additional questions or to schedule a lesson!
Right now i am in the works of obtaining my PhD in History. History is my passion! I consider myself a jack of all trades but the best trade i have is my knowledge of History. I work in most areas of History (i cant know everything in History). WW1, WW2, DarkAges, European History, U. S. History, etc. I absolutly love History and I can show you that you love it too!! If you have any questions about my teaching techniques, times available, or anything else fill free to contact me via email or TutorExtra. please allow up to 24 hours to respond. Normally it will be sooner than that.
