-Bachelor's degree in American Sign Language/Deaf Studies

I have experience with helping students to build their vocabulary in American Sign Language.
I have previous experience working in education as a tutor and paraeducator. As a paraeducator, I worked with pre-K through middle school aged children helping them to improve their skills in American Sign Language. I have also tutored college students in the areas of business ethics, marketing, and advertising.

I have an International Master of Business Administration degree and due to my academic performance, I was invited to become a member of the National Society of Leadership and Success; I have been a member since 2014. I also have my associates degree in Spanish and Liberal Arts. In addition to my degrees, I have studied Spanish and German and have earned college-level certifications in both languages.

It's exciting and rewarding to be a tutor because I love to help people who want to gain a better understanding of a particular subject.

I am hearing yet I have spent a lot of time being immersed in the Deaf community so I am not only aware of the language, I am also very knowledgeable of Deaf culture, history, and literature. During my studies in American Sign Language/Deaf Studies, I gave presentations on topics ranging from advocating for the Deaf community to explaining medical conditions in American Sign Language.

My ASL lessons include: Vocabulary building exercises, sentence practice, cultural information, and lesson plans personalized to your needs/goals (that can be emailed to you upon request).

My schedule is very open. I'm very patient and like to give high-fives or fist bumps throughout my lessons. Let's get started!

College Counseling

During my undergraduate years, I held an officer position of an academic organization that was focused on helping minorities to advance in the field of engineering. During that time, I provided guidance on ways to improve students' academic experience by providing them with advice on good study habits, self-care, and resources to reach out to in the event that they needed additional assistance. During my graduate school years, I offered the same assistance to students that came to me for help based on them noticing how organized I was in school. Due to my achievements in graduate school, I was invited to join the National Society for Leadership and Success. Upon joining that organization, I was able to sharpen my skills on how to become a better leader and to help others succeed.

Fitness,

Fitness

I helped athletes to prepare for track meets by creating drills for both long and short distance events. I like to participate with the students as they do their drills; it's more interactive and the athletes (that I have worked with) responded well to my involvement. Everyone gets their hearts pumping during my conditioning drills during the season or during the off-season.

Track & Field

During the 2018 Track and Field season, I worked with over 70 middle school athletes. I specialized in training athletes to do short distance events. I also acted as a mentor; students would come to me feeling disappointed or upset about their performance during a track meet and I would encourage them to not let that bring them down. I am used to working with athletes in groups or one-on-one for conditioning training.

Experienced, friendly and encouraging

Jocelynn really knows her stuff. Not only did she show me signs, but she also explained a lot about Deaf culture that I didn't know. She was very positive and easy to work with. Looking forward to more lessons.

DAVID, 24 lessons with Jocelynn

Passionate and delightful

Jocelynn taught me what was looking for but included so much more than just the signs, she emphasized expression and feeling and heart. She created a positive safe space that was easy and enjoyable to learn in. 10/10 would recommend!

Great ASL teacher!

Jocelynn is the best! I’ve been studying with her for 12 months now and both semesters have gotten A’s in my sign language classes. She’s also edited papers I’ve written, which I also got all A’s on. This is at the university level. I have no doubt she has had a great impact on my grades! She is very professional and encouraging. I am so thankful to have found her as a tutor!
