About Christine

My Deaf cousin lived with me since I was 6 years old. At that time, I didn't know any sign language until she taught me throughout the years. I first learned the alphabet and then spelled words to her in exchange for the actual sign. As we grew up together, my ASL skills improved every day. Our daily conversation helped with my receptive skills as well as my sign production. I became quicker in my signing and found myself using the language as second nature. My fluency increased tremendously. I was asked to interpret for my cousin a lot during events, family gatherings, church, etc.

As I became older, I realized how much I enjoyed using ASL and communicating with the Deaf community. I was intrigued with the language and interpreting as a future profession. I'm currently at Columbia College Chicago completing my ASL-English Interpretation program to become a professional sign language interpreter. I've had a total of 18 years of experience in American Sign Language. I also taught ASL to my Goddaughters, whose parents are deaf, I enjoy teaching and sharing the language. Tutoring has been one of my passions, especially with this language because it's very visual and gives the consumers a chance to expand on the language 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.

Sign Language

I have 16 years of experience using American Sign Language due to growing up with my deaf cousin. I'm currently finishing up my ASL-English Interpretation program at Columbia College Chicago. I've tutored many other students in my program as well as teach others the language from scratch and the progress I've seen is fantastic. I make sure to start off with the basic needs of whom I am tutoring and enhance their skills in the language to reach their goals.
