About Christina

Hello!

I am an occupational therapist currently working in rehabilitation, but really I'm here to teach sign language! My teaching experience includes teaching American Sign Language to my friends (I am Hard of Hearing and have Deaf friends) and teaching subjects related to occupational therapy including anatomy, psychology, pathology, physiology and (of course) occupational therapy.

I have an undergraduate degree in philosophy and my biggest area of expertise is philosophy of science. So if you'd like to learn some philosophy, I'm your woman.

I take a well-rounded approach to tutoring and will meet you at your level, and use the learning methods that work best for you. I am very flexible in my teaching methods and my love for ASL (and science) knows no bounds.

I have a graduate degree in occupational therapy, which is a branch of medicine and have had extensive education in anatomy, pathology and related fields.

Graduating from graduate school requires superb communication skills.

I learned sign language naturally from Deaf friends and am a part of the Deaf community, something that is very important in learning sign language.

I have experience working with children with autism as an ABA/behavioral therapist, and am proficient at working with people with various disabilities as a result of my education and work experience.

Please contact me at your earliest convenience to set up a time to meet with me!

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.

Autism

I am an experience ABA therapist/behavioral analyst and completed two years of work at the Special School District in St. Louis county as a behavioral therapist. I am familiar with tutoring both children and adults with autism. Additionally, I am familiar with sociopolitical issues surrounding autism especially regarding ableism in society toward those with autism.

Hard Of Hearing

I am personally Hard of Hearing and am familiar with family education, adaptive strategies for those who are Hard of Hearing, assistive technology for the Hard of Hearing/Deaf. I am involved in the Deaf community and understand how being Hard of Hearing/Deaf has an impact on one's ability to communicate and socialize. I am able to tutor Hard of Hearing students through a variety of methods including visual, written, and am familiar with how to adapt environments to best suit someone who is Hard of Hearing. I have a doctoral degree in occupational therapy and have developed compensation strategies for people who are Hard of Hearing.

Sign Language

I am Hard of Hearing and am fluent in conversational American Sign Language. My husband is Deaf and I have Deaf friends. I learned ASL in a completely natural environment and have supplemented that learning with readings on ASL linguistics. My tutoring methods are immersive - that is I generally avoid speaking English during a tutoring session and instead focus only on signing. I am the approximate equivalent of an intermediate-level interpreter and have tutored approximately 15 other people in sign language. I am a part of the Deaf community and use ASL daily, sometimes exclusively however I also function in the hearing world.
