I was born Deaf and have used sign language all my life. I have used ASL interpreters since the 5th grade, in various workplaces and throughout pharmacy school. My experience working with interpreters from a client's perspective is a plus for ASL interpreting students. I have had hands on experience during the Deaf President Now protest at Gallaudet University and a 100% immersed experience in Deaf Culture while at Gallaudet where I got my B.A. degree. I have a lifetime experience teaching and tutoring ASL both in informal and formal settings.

I walked through online credited courses, ASL I and II, with a student last year. I tutor students from high schools and colleges. I teach ASL classes to families with special need children.

I can teach younger children and families privately if desired. I might be available to tutor Deaf/Hard of Hearing children in various subjects. I have children in school and I help them with their homework daily.

I am a a very patient and passionate teacher. Anyone who knows me can verify that.

I can tutor you via internet or in person.

References are available upon request.

Note: I will be teaching at the College of Marin in Spring of 2014 and cannot tutor my own students.

Sign Language

I was born deaf and learned sign language at 18 months old. I had sign language interpreters throughout my K-12 education. I attended Gallaudet University, the only deaf university in the world, where I took American Sign Language classes and received my B.A. in biology. In addition, I have a doctoral degree in pharmacy. I also had interpreters throughout pharmacy school. I have been a Signing Time Academy instructor for one year and a half. I am starting a teaching job at the College of Marin as an ASL instructor in the Spring. I have tutored students who are taking ASL courses either online or at colleges also for one year and a half.
