Here is a little bit about me:
I am 29 years old and live in the east valley of the Phoenix area. I have a husband and a baby boy who will be 1 in July! He has been a more than the cliché "blessing" in our lives. He is now our reason for living :)
I graduated in 2005 with a degree in American Sign Language/English Interpreting from Southeast Technical Institute in Sioux Falls, SD. I have been a Sign Language Interpreter here in the Valley for 8 1/2 years! I love my job and the new experiences that I encounter everyday.
What I can do for you:
At this point in my career I would love to use my skills and knowledge to help students of all ages build their own skills of Sign Language. Not only will I teach you how to sign words and concepts, I will do my best at giving you background knowledge of the sign to help you make sense of the hand shapes and movements you are producing. It's one thing to just show you, but it is another whole new world to learn the reasons behind it.
Deaf/Hard of Hearing Students:
Does your deaf or hard of hearing child need assistance with their schoolwork? I would be happy to tutor your student in English related coursework or elementary level math.
Through my experiences as an Interpreter I have assisted students of all ages in English grammar. Also with my personal education, I have had to pass a level of grammar expectations in writing academic papers. I am confident that I can help assist in your struggles with grammar.
My Areas of Experience:
Through the past 8 years of interpreting I have experienced an endless amount of information. I have been exposed to a variety of fields that the world has to offer. My "specialized" fields include education (K-12 math, English, science, history, ETC.), post-secondary education (English, grammar, reading, sciences, math, psychology, etc.), and medical situations.
I would love to be part of your learning experience and share my abilities with you!
I look forward to being your tutor!
I have 7 years of experience working with hard of hearing and deaf individuals. I hold a National Interpreter Certification. I have interpreted in educational settings for 7 years.
I have an associates degree in American Sign Language/English Interpreting. I have 7 1/2 years of Sign Language Interpreting experience in educational settings (K-12 and post-secondary) and community settings (business meeting, job trainings, hospitals, etc.). I hold a National Interpreter Certification (NIC-General). I hold a Generalist Sign Language Interpreter State License.
