About Christiane

I have a genuine love of teaching all ages to sign American Sign Language. My main tutoring goal is to help students navigate the road to ASL fluency.

I graduated with highest honors in Spring 2013 from Berkeley Community College and with certification from the Interpreter Preparation Program (IPP) at Ohlone College. I am presently a professional ASL/English interpreter.
My IPP studies included: mentor-ships with well respected members of the Deaf community in schools and social services, in-depth analysis of ASL and English discourse and hands-on interpreting skills. To work in schools I was required to pass a TB test, finish a 2-hour online course on child abuse and be fingerprinted by the Catholic Archdiocese of Oakland. I interned at 2 interpreter agencies as well as several colleges in the Bay Area including San Francisco State University.

I have had the pleasure of tutoring at the California School for the Deaf. My duties included tutoring deaf and hard of hearing children ages 9 to 17 in English and math, assisting the director of the high school theater spring show and the head of the Culinary Arts Dept.

For the past 20 years, I have also taught dance. My experience teaching children includes working at many Bay area public and private schools including Lincoln High School, University High School, Lick Wilmerding and Potrero Hill Middle School (through San Francisco Arts Education where I am a board member).

Along with my experience as an professional actor, my work as a tutor and dance teacher gives me a unique perspective on the teaching process.
