I have a genuine love of teaching Deaf and Hard of Hearing children and look forward to continuing to help level the academic playing field for them through tutoring.
As part of my requirements to receive my AA degree in American Sign Language from Berkeley Community College, I had the pleasure of tutoring at the California School for the Deaf. My duties included tutoring Deaf and Hard of Hearing children ages 9 to 17 in English and Math, assisting the director of the High School theater Spring show and data entry for the head of the culinary arts dept.
For the past 20 years, I have also taught hip hop and jazz dance. My experience teaching children includes working at many Bay area public and private schools including Lincoln High School, University High School, Lick Wilmerding and Potrero Hill Middle School (through San Francisco Arts Education where I am a board member.)
Along with my experience as an professional actor, my work as a tutor and dance teacher gives me a unique perspective on the teaching process. My tutoring technique can include visual, written text, kinesthetic and aural approaches.
Although I graduated with highest honors in Spring 2013, I continue my study of American Sign Language at Ohlone College with courses such as Deaf Education and Linguistics.
