I have been involved with American Sign Language for many years and have gained extensive knowledge of the language as well as the culture. The best way to learn any language is to be immersed in an environment where the student is exposed to it 24/7. Currently I am in such an environment. I am a senior at Gallaudet University, the world's only liberal arts university for the deaf and hard of hearing, and will be graduating in December of 2013 with a degree in Deaf Studies. My future goals are to become an ASL teacher and to share my experiences being immersed in the deaf world, and to prepare future generations of ASL teachers or interpreters. All of my teachers have also graduated from this university and have shared their experiences with me in ways that go beyond the classroom. I also hold a position at the university library and have unlimited access to books, DVDs, and journals that relate to the ASL curriculum. In addition my course work at the university includes classes in comparative analysis of ASL and English, Deaf Culture, ASL Discourse and Register, ASL linguistics, and ASL literature.
I am qualified to tutor Sign Language because form 2010-2011 I was the ASL teacher's assistant at Sam Houston State University(SHSU) before transferring to Gallaudet University to pursue my educational goal. In addition I have served as President of the SHSU ASL Association and passed the American Sign Language Proficiency Interview(ASLPI) with a rating of 3.
