About Thais

Hi! I have been tutoring and helping other students since 5th grade and began tutoring more seriously in high school. I graduated with an Associate's degree in Sign Language Interpreting and have been working in the school systems with deaf and hard of hearing students since 2008. I also have a Bachelor's degree in Interdisciplinary Studies from Governors State University. Furthermore, I have a business where I get to teach infants through 3 year olds and their parents sign language. I look forward to getting to know you and helping you however I can! Hi!

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am qualified to work with students K-6 because I have spent the last 6 years in classrooms from pre-K through 7th grade interpreting and helping my students. I have had to reteach several times when my students were uncertain of the material from the original lesson. Before I worked in school systems, I worked as a teacher in a daycare. Finally, even when I was younger, I excelled in my studies and was allowed to miss some classes to help teach other students in a way they could easily understand.

Hard Of Hearing

I am qualified to work with Hard of Hearing students because I have been doing that for 6 years professionally and several more with my fellow classmates. I have an associate's degree in Sign Language and Interpreter Training. Also, throughout my entire length of schooling, I worked with classmates who were Deaf or Hard of Hearing. They would teach me sign language while I taught them social skills and helped with their studies. I have been signing since I was 3 years old.

Sign Language

I received a certificate in Sign Language, a certificate from the Interpreter Training Program, and an Associates degree in Applied Sciences with a focus in Interpreter Training from Waubonsee Community College. I have been working as a Sign Language Interpreter in school systems for 5 years. Furthermore, I have a business where I teach infants-3 year olds and their parents sign language.

My 13yr old daughter just loves Thais, even though she's only been going to her for a couple of weeks. She says she learns more in an hour with Thais than has her own math teacher in a complete week.
