My name is Jenelle and I am a current hearing ASL student at SRJC and BCC. I have been studying American Sign Language for 3 years, and have been involved in the Deaf community since I entered my first ASL class. I currently volunteer at DCARA, a Deaf center in the East Bay and privately interpret for a few people. Let me state I am not fluent, though advanced enough to do my best to interpret and comfortably get by in the community.
My approach is, in my opinion, one of the best ways to go when studying and learning sign. Voice off. If a student has not taken one class then I make exceptions and use voice to ensure the student is not lost or confused. I have learned patience and encouragement throughout the years of studying with and tutoring other ASL students. I also enjoy sharing information about the Deaf community and Deaf culture as this is an incredibly important aspect in this field and subject.
If you or your child is looking for a dedicated, passionate and encouraging tutor then please reach out and ask for help. The more to learn and enjoy sign, is another opportunity to be apart of something incredible!
