About Princess

My first experience with tutoring was during my senior year at Oakland University. I was required to volunteer my time for a nonprofit institution as a part of the curriculum. I chose Detroit Rescue Ministries in Detroit, which is a teen mom and children facility. There was a 14 year old mom who needed tutoring in literacy.

I developed a few exercises that I knew would help her learn and improve her reading and writing skills. Her literacy improved substantially over the couple of months that I spent time tutoring her. It was such a fulfilling experience to have successfully helped a young mother in an impactful way.

I began learning American Sign Language (ASL) in 2012 to fulfill my foreign language requirement for my bachelor's degree at Oakland University. I fell in love with the language as well as the culture. I decided to further my studies in ASL at Oakland Community College (OCC). I am a recent graduate of OCC's - Sign Language Interpreter Program where I am also a supplemental instructor in the program. I was a substitute teacher in Bloomfield Hills, where I often subbed in Deaf and hard of hearing classrooms. Now I am a Sign Language Instructor at Tipton Academy in Garden City.

I am heavily involved in the deaf community. I am a volunteer interpreter. I am also webmaster and supporting member of National Alliance of Black Interpreters(N.A.O.B.I) Detroit.

If you're interested in learning American Sign Language and/or deaf culture, I'm your girl!

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.

In one lesson she helped my 16yr old son begin to enjoy sign language. She used multiple activities to keep him engaged and learning. My son is looking forward to the next lesson and said he was grateful for the additional resources she provided.
