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 am a recent graduate of the Oakland Community College - Sign Language Interpreter Program where I am also a supplemental instructor in the program. During the day, I am a substitute teacher in Oakland County.

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 OCC. The Sign Language Interpreter Program is the only accredited interpreter training program in Michigan. I am heavily involved in the deaf community. I volunteer my time interpreting every year for the Deaf Arts Festival (Arts Beats & Eats) and Deaf Santa. I am also a webmaster, supporting member and volunteer interpreter.

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