About Sylvie

I have a Bachelor's degree in American Sign Language and a minor in interpreting; I got my master's degree from Gallaudet University in Deaf Studies. I've worked as a tutor since 2001 and currently do a lot of tutoring work. I tend to include a lot of culture as well, so the student has a well rounded understanding of the Deaf Community.

My method is to go with the student's pace. I like to work on basic words at first so we can get used to having conversations instead of a hodgepodge of random words that can't be put together in a sentence. Along with this I introduce grammar as well. I really enjoy tutoring and introducing people into the Deaf Community; it's a beautiful language and can be really fun to learn when you are matched with the right tutor. I have a curriculum and assignments already. The goal is set by the students, what they want the end result to be - whether it's communicating with a Deaf child, becoming an interpreter or just to learn a new language.

I've been in the Deaf Community for 15 years and would like to help others feel welcome in the community through language, culture and history knowledge. I'm very flexible with times.
