“Ashley has inspired me tremendously in both speaking and writing. Instead of lecturing on what to follow, he encouraged me to learn through doing and constantly gave me feedback.

Thanks to his instruction, I have made significant progress, including a first prize award in a provincial speech contest, and 7.5 in IELTS writing. Ashley is a great teacher and friend” – Alice Wei, China
