About Ronnie

I am a Deaf Professional. I have over 30 years' experience in the field of Deafness.
I started out working at my former high school, Florida School for the Deaf in St. Augustine as a Group Leader in the girls' dormitory. I moved to Rochester, NY to work as an Admissions Counselor for National Technical Institute for the Deaf, a college of Rochester Institute of Technology. Once I graduated from there with my Master's degree, I relocated back south and accepted a position with GA Vocational Rehab as a Rehab Counselor for the Deaf. A few years later, I returned to my home state and worked for FL Vocational Rehab as a Rehab Counselor for the Deaf. I worked closely with the students at FL School for the Deaf, helping them with their transitional plans. I was then offered a job teaching American Sign Language part time. Some of the places I taught was at Florida State College at Jacksonville, St Johns River State College, University of North Florida, and Fleming Island High School in Clay County. I also worked with students in grades 1-12 as a substitute teacher. I am interested in tutoring because from my experience, Deaf students need direct communication with someone who has been in their shoes. Therefore, the students relate better and know that we have their best interests at heart. I am looking forward to working with you and helping you excel in ASL and academics.

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.

Bible Studies

I taught Sunday School for several years. It was the best decision I ever made in my life. I want to continue to teach people how to developed a personal relationship with God. Many people miss out on this wonderful opportunity. They do not know that they have to read and study the bible. I will be able to teach them how to apply the Word to their life.

Hard Of Hearing

I am a successful Deaf adult. I graduated from Rochester Institute of Technology with a Master's degree. Many Deaf students have an overall 4th grade reading level. I think this is because some Deaf students are in programs where they are not able to be taught using their first language, which is American Sign Language. They are visual learners.

Sign Language

I was previously certified by American Sign Language Teachers Association at the qualified level. I can always have my certification renewed if needed. However, I am a native user of ASL and have taught for over 12 years. I have worked as an Adjunct Professor at community colleges and universities.
