About Jennifer

Hello!
My name is Jenn, and I am an American Sign Language interpreter. I have background in medical and mental health interpreting coupled with a love of learning and language - which is why I homeschool my children. I have experience in tutoring several subjects, although mostly I have stayed in my areas of expertise of English, Algebra, and American Sign Language.

As an American Sign Language interpreter I am charged with having a firm grasp on the grammatical structure of the English language and an extensive vocabulary, both of which I work regularly to improve.

I have an associates degree in Deaf Studies and am working on my Bachelors in American Sign Language Interpretation and Psychology. I intend to move forward with a Masters in Clinical Counseling. I have been working for about five years as an interpreter and learn more each day.

Knowledge really is power - the power to enlighten and better yourself in ways that can change your entire perspective in life. I would like to help you gain that knowledge and learn from you as well!

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 Math

Currently I homeschool my two children, and one of the subjects we work on is math, naturally. I also work as a sign language interpreter and have interpreted in elementary, high school, and college level math classes.

English

As a Sign Language Interpreter my job is to know both English and American Sign language in depth in order to provide the best interpretation possible. I am tested in English vocabulary and grammar in order to maintain my certification and license, so I diligently work to increase my word bank and correct my grammar consistently.

Hard Of Hearing

I have been working as an American Sign Language interpreter for the past 3 1/2 years in a variety of settings, including preschool through bachelors level in college. I hold an Advanced certification and I am licensed in the state of Missouri and Illinois.

Sign Language

I hold an associates degree from Southwestern Illinois College in Deaf Studies and am working to complete my bachelors degree. My minor is in American Sign Language Interpreting from William Woods University and my major focuses on Psychology (my intention is to move into the Master of Clinical Counseling to work with Deaf and Hard of Hearing clients). I hold an Advanced Certification from the Missouri Interpreter Certification System and current interpreting licenses in Illinois and Missouri and have been working as an interpreter since February of 2013. I recently obtained 80 hours (40 classroom/40 practicum) of mental health interpreter training through the Alabama Department of Mental Health. I tutor and teach ASL in a community education setting.

Study Skills

I have worked as a tutor for 8 years. I regularly interpret for deaf and hard of hearing students with thier tutors. I am a homeschooling mother who plans material for and teaches her own children on how to effectively read and study in order to retain information. I am currently taking my bachelors degree as well and am working through the Kaplan GRE Verbal Workbook in order to improve my own test taking ability. Part of my job as a Sign Language Interpreter requires that I take 20 hours of continuing education credits annually in education, ethics, and vocabulary. I also participate in study groups regularly in order to prepare myself for my interpreting exams (which include American Sign Language interpretations and ENGLISH proficiency exams).
