Baker College - Flint, MI Campus (Interpreter Training)
I am a Junior with a 3.8 GPA at Baker College of Flint's Interpreter Training Program (ITP). In addition to taking ASL classes at Baker, I also took Sign Language courses in my high school years at Oakland Community College and through private lessons with a certified ASL interpreter. I have successfully completed two of three internships in the program (240 hours) and have had much experience in the community, and in learning ASL. Since I was a freshman in high school, I have been learning American Sign Language, so I am almost fluent. My goal is to become certified before graduation, and I will be starting the interpreter certification process in my junior year.
I'm looking for additional tutoring opportunities for others who are learning American Sign Language. I enjoy creating a fun learning environment for all who are learning this language because it is a movement/gestural language after all.
I have been teaching ASL for 3 years now, and I truly enjoy helping students improve and develop the same love for the language that I have. I am willing and comfortable to tutor students of all ages, and I am looking forward to providing the help and tools necessary to aid success.
If you choose me as your tutor, I will not only help you succeed, but enjoy the process as well. I am a Junior with a 3.8 GPA at Baker College of Flint's Interpreter Training Program (ITP).

Maria does such a great job tutoring my 10, 8, and 6 year olds! She is very knowledgeable about ASL and the proper and more accepted ways of signing. Maria is excellent and my children look forward to their tutor sessions each week!
Maria started to tutor my three year old daughter today, she was extremely patient while my wild child ran around the library. She was nimble and changed her plan as my daughter picked up new item after new item after new item. She was warm and my daughter warmed right up to her. Looking forward to our next lesson.
Maria is tutoring my daughter in sign-language over the computer. My daughter gets so excited for her lesson each week and is eager to do her homework after she and Maria meet.
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.
