About Katy


Bio

I'm a mom of two boys who are 10 and 5 years old and love to home tutor them in just about every subject. I've been a Sign Language Interpreter for 11 years and thoroughly love my work. This work has included tutoring 2 high school students and 3 adults in the use of American Sign Language. I was nominated to be an organizational chair on my Alumni board of Sign Language Interpreter mentors.

Avidly reading, exploring the intricacies of English grammar, and worldly studies are my hobbies....

I'm a mom of two boys who are 10 and 5 years old and love to home tutor them in just about every subject. I've been a Sign Language Interpreter for 11 years and thoroughly love my work. This work has included tutoring 2 high school students and 3 adults in the use of American Sign Language. I was nominated to be an organizational chair on my Alumni board of Sign Language Interpreter mentors.

Avidly reading, exploring the intricacies of English grammar, and worldly studies are my hobbies. I've lived in several US states as well as in Naples, Italy and have studied multiple European languages.

I've been reading at a collegiate level since the 4th Grade, was an ace in AP English in high school, and partially completed a BA in English before beginning my career in interpreting. Being an ASL interpreter requires a high competency in both English and ASL, as it's part of our credentialing and every day working processes. I've lived in and visited several European countries and studied their languages as well. I'm fluent in American Sign Language. While I'm not fluent in other foreign languages, my studies have given me a basic structural understanding of them.

I've been interpreting both in the community (medical, legal, business, etc) and educational (K-1, post-secondary, graduate, and doctorate) settings for 11 years. I have been working with an Advanced level certification for four years.

Working with D/HH students in all levels of education has given me a clearer understanding of the linguistic and extra linguistic needs of those that fall into this category.

I'm happy to share my knowledge with others and love to see what true comprehension of a subject can result in. I love to make learning fun and encourage a lot of questions!

Knowledgeable & patient tutor

She did a great evaluation of where I was at, made suggestions of where to start and gave me “homework”. :) I am gonna love continuing to learn with her. She has mapped out a plan and talked it over with me. She wants to know where we are coming from - our background, why we want to learn and what we see doing with it. It isn't about a cookie cutter lesson plan, it is all about us.

So helpful

Katy gives me great ideas to build on what I know and what I need to learn. My biggest issue is using classifieds and after only a couple sessions, I feel like I have made improvements. I feel that she is invested in my learning. She is kind and knowledgeable!
