About

[Due to the current coronavirus situation, I am temporarily providing remote tutoring lessons via platforms such as Skype or FaceTime to all my existing and potential students. It functions almost identically as a face-to-face lesson whilst minimising social contact. Please message me for enquiries. Thank you.]

Hi! My name is Ashley and I am a first-year university student undertaking a double degree in Commerce/Information Systems at UNSW.

I am highly proficient in English as I was selected for the role of 2018 School English Captain. This involved mentoring students in the areas of public speaking, creative writing, poetry and essay writing.



My HSC marks were:
English Advanced (95), English Extension 1 (94), English Extension 2 (92), French Continuers (90), Modern History (90) and Business Studies (97).

I offer:
High School Students Years 11-12 ($50/hr)
- English analysis, proof-reading and marking (Essay and Creative writing)
- Business Studies proof-reading and marking (Short answer question/Business report/Extended Response)

For group tuition, I offer tutoring sessions for TWO people only ($35/hr per student) to ensure each student still receives quality teaching, feedback and attention.

My goal is to help students understand the foundation of the subject in order to fully grasp how to approach questions in a flexible, not formulaic, manner. This is due to the new syllabus of the HSC, which I have experienced firsthand, as it encourages students to think broadly rather than rely on memorised knowledge.

Reviews

The best tutor out there for English! I've been through numerous tutors and never was able to get someone as dedicated, fun and understanding as Ashley! She is so lovable and so hardworking, always striving to assist her students to do their best. As a result, she has unlimited resources, always ready to answer messages despite the late nights and she will willingly edit your work whenever you feel like giving up on it and will always encourage you until the finish. She has an extensive knowledge and ridiculously creative brain which makes any student to flourish within a few weeks. My marks started off average in english and now im topping all my english units thanks to Ashley!! She is very organised and always plans out her lessons well and offers very good and honest feedback which is key to helping you improve. Highly recommend :)
