Hello, my name is Marcos. Please call me Mark. I am Deaf myself. I had been volunteering and Teacher Assistant at Deaf Fremont for two years. Now I am a substitute teacher aide and volunteer in two school districts. I have been tutoring Deaf and Hearing students in American Sign Language and Math. They are third and fourth grade students. I was a counselor camp with Hearing and Deaf campers and I taught ASL to them. I had a lot of experiences in ASL and Math.

Approved subjects

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.

Basketball

I am going to teach kids the game of basketball, like copy me running, dribble moves, ball-handling,running laps, shoot long distances and playing horse game.

Do you want to learn the game of basketball?

First I am going to teach you some techniques.

I taught the kids ranged in age from 5 to 11 years old at YMCA. Last summer I volunteered as camp counselor for Deaf and Hearing kids. There are many campers. I taught them with techniques for improving their game.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have been working substitute teacher aide and teacher aide for three years. I first started working with special needs with children in k-6th.
In 2009, I was a substitute paraeducator at elementary I started tutoring American Sign Language for three-grade for a month.
First, I became a regular paraeducator for one to three grade Hearing Impaired students. I worked with them in a small group and individual work. I worked there for a year. Secondly, I started volunteering at Deaf school for couple of months then I got a job as Teacher Assistant with students in the fourth grade. I worked there for two years.
Therefore, I return to my former job as paraeducator substitute for k-6th. Now I am working with special needs such as Autism, Hearing Impaired, and Mild and Moderate.

I love my jobs so much.
