About Jessica

I have been with the Los Angeles County Office of Education for over 16 years working as a ParaEducator-Sign Language. I was born hearing, got sick with spinal meningitis when I was 2 years old and as a result, I became profoundly deaf. I have absolutely no hearing and hearing aids do not help at all. I have three beautiful children who are hearing and they sign.

I've always wanted to tutor or just simply teach sign language to those who want to learn and teach babies as well! I have no experience tutoring, except 16 years experience of working with Deaf and Hard of Hearing students infants through High School. We have gotten so many deaf students that has no exposure to sign language and I help teach them necessary signs at the beginning.

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.

Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)

I am a ParaEducator for the Los Angeles County Office of Education for over 16 years. Currently I am assisting a classroom of DHH first through third grades. We have a student who has mild autism, but deafness is the first main disability.

Hard Of Hearing

I have been deaf since I was 2 years old as a result of spinal meningitis. My parents put me in a total communication classroom and that was the best decision they made for me. I learned sign language as soon as I began school a few months after I became deaf.

I have been working as a ParaEducator-Sign Language for over 16 years for the Los Angeles County Office of Education. I've taught Deaf and Hard of Hearing children ranging from 2 years old through high school ages as a ParaEducator. I'm currently set in a classroom of Deaf and Hard of Hearing first through third grades. When needed, I also assist a classroom of DHH Preschool/Kindergarten and DHH fourth through fifth grades at the same elementary school.
