About Kate

Working with children who are deaf and hard of hearing first became one of my passions when I was 16 years old and started working as a junior counselor at a summer job for deaf and hard of hearing students. While observing the deaf education teacher and watching the students learn, I knew that I wanted to encourage students to ignite their minds to learn. I have been teaching in the deaf education field for the past three years and am continuing to grow.

I love sharing this beautiful language with others and I believe that the best way to learn a language is to learn from native signers and practice often. As a college student, I volunteered to help my peers learn sign language for their sign language proficiency test.

Signing since I was around 5 years old, I thoroughly enjoy sharing my knowledge of the Deaf Culture and using my American Sign Language skills to help clients excel. Ranging from basic vocabulary to conversational phrases, I help clients gain understanding of the different aspects of American Sign Language. I provide practice cards, fingerspelling practice, video resources, and quizzes.

With a flexible schedule, I am generally available everyday from 11am-8pm. My rate is $35/hour and I can travel to meet with clients.

I look forward to hearing from you and helping you enrich your sign language skills!

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 am qualified to teach sign language because as a Deaf person, I use sign language to communicate and I am fluent in it. I am a certified teacher for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing and sign language is the primary communication mode in my classroom. I volunteered my time in college, teaching my peers sign language to provide them extra practice.
