About Mary Ellen

Welcome to Wyzant and thank you for your interest in sign language!

I would like to take this opportunity to give you a brief summary of my academic credentials and my experience tutoring and teaching.

I graduated cum laude from Ocean County College, having completed an AAS degree in Sign Language Interpreting. I have also attended various workshops and seminars designed to enhance signing on a day-to-day basis.

I have taught and tutored sign language for over eight years. I have worked with small groups ranging from 2-12 students and in one-on-one tutoring sessions. I have experience working with students of many ages and situations, from preschoolers to eighth graders studying signed language as their World language. I absolutely love sign language in all forms. I can tutor Signed English and American Sign Language. I also enjoy helping students understand the Deaf community and appreciate the uniqueness of their culture.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Sign Language

I have an AAS degree in Sign Language from Ocean County College, Toms River, NJ. For eight years, I taught sign language (as the World Language requirement) to students ranging from 5-13 years in an alternative school in mid-New Jersey. I use total communication (simultaneous speaking and signing) with the students to teach vocabulary and more ASL signing for conversation settings.
