I am hard of hearing and currently working on getting a master's in vocational rehabilitation, a field that assists people with various disabilities accomplish their dream to becoming independent by helping them receive funding for their continued education and giving them the resources that they need to be independent and vice versa.

I have a bachelor's degree in political science from California State University at Northridge, and a certificate in medical billing and coding from Everest College. Upon graduating, I had a passion for teaching and pursued a career in teaching, had a hands-on experience teaching history at PS 47 The American Sign Language and Secondary School. It was an enriching experience to teach in a mainstreamed classroom with both deaf and hearing students.

I have experience with teaching deaf and hard of hearing students in various subjects. I have taught mathematics, typing, filming, transition to high school with a group of deaf and hard of hearing students from 2nd grade to 8th grade at a summer school in New York. I have helped students to tackle problems with mathematics, how to successfully film a short clip, focusing on the angle, focusing on the plot, the characters and so forth. For example, we created a short film of the story The Big Bad Wolf and the Three Little Pigs, even built a brick house of cardboard, painted it red, and had them act out the characters, and supervised one of the students filming the story. With the older students, I constantly challenged them by giving out weekly quizzes, created classroom games in which they competed with each other to answer the mathematics questions on the board. I also helped them with their study skills, encouraging them to tackle new, harder problems on daily basis, and rewarding them based on their performance.

Additionally, I was also a student-teacher for 8th and 9th graders at PS 47 The American Sign Language and Secondary School. I had a classroom mixed with hearing and deaf students. It was an enriching experience. I have helped students learn to analyze literature, write essays, understand historical events and prepare them for the Regents exam just before the summer vacation. To enhance their understanding of historical events, and to help them better absorb the information, I have assigned group work, and classroom presentations which enabled the students to work, do critical thinking together, combine their skills to present their work.

As a former history teacher, I know just what the teachers are looking for, what their expectations are, and have a general idea of what might be on the test, and how to effectively study for the tests. I am comfortable with working with K-12 students on general subjects such as reading, mathematics, science, history. I am passionate about helping students improve in all academic subjects. I still remember my excitement when one of my history students got his first “A” on the test.

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.

Hard Of Hearing

I have experience in teaching deaf and hard of hearing students in a variety of subjects such as history, filming, mathematics, and transition to high school. Through teaching students from 2nd to 9th grade, I have learned how to best teach each age group. For example, I have taught the 2nd grade students how to film a story of the Big Bad Wolf and the Three Little Pigs, but gave the 8th and 9th grade students group projects, classroom presentations, and quizzes to help prepare them for the exams.
