About Elle

I am deaf but I do hear well with my hearing aid. I am fluent in ASL and English. Why not get tutored by someone who knows ASL best!? I graduated in 2013 with my Master's in Special Education from University of South Florida in hopes of becoming a deaf education teacher. I have my Bachelor's in Political Science as well from Gallaudet University in Washington, DC. My biggest personalities that people do see in me are: I am very bubbly, fun, patient, and understanding in any situation. I believe that ASL is a beautiful, logical language that can be a helpful, liberating medium of expression for many children.

For past two years, I worked in the deaf education classroom teaching reading, writing, math, and social studies to PreK to 3rd graders. I have experience teaching students one-on-one in math, reading, and writing. I love to work closely with a student and watch him or her grow; I have a good sense for what my students need both academically and personally.

As a teacher, I strive to encourage and affirm my students, but I also hold them to high expectations. I feel that every child has the ability to succeed as long as they are willing to work hard and ask for help whenever they need it.

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.

Hard Of Hearing

For past two years, I worked in the deaf education classroom teaching reading, writing, math, and social studies to PreK to 3rd graders. I have experience teaching students one-on-one in math, reading, and writing. I love to work closely with a student and watch him or her grow; I have a good sense for what my students need both academically and personally.

Sign Language

Back in college, I ran a club for students who were interested in learning American Sign Language and I tutored ASL as well. I believe that ASL is a beautiful, logical language that can be a helpful, liberating medium of expression for many children.

Special Needs

I do obtain a Masters in Exceptional Student Education from University of South Florida. With my educational background, I worked at a special needs developmental center in Kissimmee, FL during my Masters career. From what I learned back in my graduate school and throughout my field work I am very aware with federal and state laws related to Exceptional Student Education such as Section 504 of Rehabilitation Act NCLB. I also am aware and experienced with the modifications of a student's learning to accomply his or her exceptional needs. I have to add that I'm pretty much familiar with IEPs and the importance of collaboration between the student's parent and the student's teachers/therapists.
