About Janel

American Sign Language (ASL) is a complete and beautiful language with a rich history. I hold an Associates Degree with an emphasis in Sign Language Interpreting from Front Range Community College. I am fluent in ASL and have a deep understanding of its crucial role and significance within the Deaf community.

I can provide ASL tutoring on any level you desire from basic conversation skills (i.e. to help you communicate with Deaf friends and/or family members)...to lessons regarding ASL linguistic features and in-depth lessons about Deaf community values and history...and every level in-between.

My goal is to help you feel confident and find success in communicating through ASL! Let's get started!

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 graduated from Front Range Community College and have been a professional interpreter for 3 years. In addition, I hold a Bachelor's Degree in English from Colorado State University which supplements my tutoring style because I am able to efficiently find the ASL sign that produces the same meaning in English and vice versa.

I can provide American Sign Language (ASL) tutoring on any level you desire from basic conversation skills in order to help you communicate with Deaf friends and/or
family members all the way to lessons regarding ASL linguistic features and important information
about the Deaf community's history and values..and every level in-between. I have years of experience as a sign language tutor in both public schools and through private sessions. My methods are successful because I can meet the student at the level he/she is at, then scaffold the sessions from there to ensure success.I have a deep understanding of the crucial role and significance that ASL holds within the Deaf community and the important implications for the hearing community. I have proven success in helping children and adults feel competent utilizing ASL.
