About Delea

I enjoy helping students to learn and truly understand the subjects they are struggling in. I try to look for alternative ways to explain concepts from a point of view that the student will understand.

I have spent the last 8 years in the banking industry and have a vast knowledge of computer systems and the vocabulary of business. I have multiple years of experience training employees. I am skilled in Microsoft Office programs especially Excel. I have been a bible teacher for more than 20 years in English and 6 years in ASL. I love teaching and love learning. Giving others the gift of knowledge and language has always brought great joy to my life.

I am a native English speaker. Which means I know all the idioms and slang that makes a person truly fluent in English as well as proper grammar and pronunciation. I received excellent marks in school including straight A's in Honors English classes.

I learned sign language through a fully immersive program through my religion. Since that time I have been teaching the bible in sign language for the last six years. Many of the deaf I have taught were no language learners. I was able to teach them from basic ASL ABC's to more complicated concepts using pictures and flash cards until they were able to learn more complicated language and idea structure. Teaching hearing students who already have language skills but have a desire to communicate with the deaf and hard of hearing in their community is very rewarding for me as well.

If you are new to computers, need English skills for that promotion you have been striving for, want to learn sign language, or just want to know how to speak in clear conversational English I am the tutor for you. I look forward to hearing from you and assisting you in attaining your learning goals.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Bible Studies

I have been an ordained minister in the Jehovah's Witness faith since age 13. I have had ongoing and current bible teaching training since birth and am currently enrolled in a school for teaching the bible in English and for the last 6 years in a school for teaching it in sign language.

ESL/ESOL

I am a native English speaker. I did very well in all English grammar, literature , and public speaking classes I have taken. I understand the correct word tenses, vocabulary, and concepts behind English as a second language classes and the importance of only using English in conversations. I have taught classes in the English language previously.

Public Speaking

I have been enrolled in a public speaking course known as the Theocratic Ministry School since I was 5 years old. I do public speaking door to door through my religion and in front of large audiences on at least a monthly if not a bimonthly basis. For the last 4-5 years I have been doing public speaking in ASL as well. The current coursebook entitled Benefit From Theocratic Ministry School Education covers 53 topics including accurate reading, fluent delivery, clear pronunciation, pausing, sense stress, appropriate volume, emphasis of principal ideas, enthusiasm, modulation, visual contact, proper use of an outline, logical material development, use of visual aids, proper use of illustrations, how to use repetition for emphases, interest arousing introductions, and effective conclusions.

Sign Language

I took a fully immersive ASL class that taught by not only copying signs but cementing them in memory by connecting them to other memory types including visual, scent, and muscle memory. The course was 4 months long and required 3 hours of study per day while doing things like bouncing a balloon on my non dominant elbow to increase blood flow to the brain and increase the number of types of memory I was using. Since that time I have been using and watching sign on a weekly basis for religious meetings with question and answer discussions twice weekly and by speaking with my deaf friends. I have taught the bible in ASL even to some with no previous language such as refugees from Nepal and other countries which means I had to first teach them the language from absolute basics before I could teach them anything else. I have found flash cards and pictures to be highly effective to teach this population.
