About Frankie

Hello,

My name is Frankie and I am a sign language interpreter/ tutor. I started learning sign language eight years ago and fell completely in love with the language and the Deaf community. My passion is interpreting but I really enjoy teaching American Sign Language as well. My long-term goal is to be an interpreter on Broadway so I can share my love of music and theater with the deaf community.

I graduated from Valdosta State University last May with a BSEd in American Sign Language/English Interpreting and a minor in Deaf Studies. After graduation I moved to Jacksonville, Florida to work as an interpreter and start my own business. In the Jacksonville area I now have well established cliental both as an interpreter and a tutor. Aside from my own business I also teach American Sign Language through Duval County Community Education and work as an interpreter for a few local agencies. I really enjoy watching students improve and helping them accomplish their goals are they expand and broaden their knowledge of the language.

My teaching style varies depending on the student and his/her needs. Since ASL is a visual/ hands on language I find that most students excel when they can apply what they are learning in interactive ways. Before beginning with a new student I like to meet with them to assure that I am the right tutor for their needs. As we work together I not only teach then the material, but I will provide tools and resources to help students continue to improve on their own. I have experience tutoring both in person and online.
