Hello! My name is Shanna. I am a Smith College graduate with a degree in Education and a concentration in theatre. I have a teaching certification from the state of Texas in American Sign Language. I just finished with teaching ASL to high school students in Austin, TX. I am Deaf myself, and have experience working with all kinds of children and adults. I can work with both hearing and Deaf populations, and I have experience with tutoring Deaf children English and math.

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.

Hard Of Hearing

I am Deaf myself, and have a degree in Education. I know American Sign Language fluently, as well as Cued Speech. I have tutored Deaf children before, and I know what the experience of being a Deaf child is like from personal experience.

Literature

Basically, I absolutely love literature, and am a huge Shakespeare fan. Some of my favorite authors include Poe, Whitman, Dickinson, Orwell, and Vonnegut. As a theatre major, I was required to analyze scripts and major works. I still remember many literary terms from back in the day!

Sign Language

I have taught American Sign Language at a high school in Austin, TX. I also have just passed the Texas ASL Performance exam and the ASL teaching exam. I am probationary certified in the state of TX at the moment. I am Deaf and fluent, and have tutored many students for over 6 years.

Theatre

I am currently an actress with a professional company here in Los Angeles. In college, my concentration was theatre. I have experience in all aspects of theatre, and have taught it in school before. I have taught acting, directing, playwriting, and more.
