About MaKaila

HI! I'm so excited that you decided to stop by and check out my profile! I am a recent graduate from TCNJ and am eager to help all those who are interested in learning ASL! I have my undergraduate in Women Gender and Studies/Deaf Ed. I also have my Master's degree in Deaf Ed. I'm also a member of the Deaf community and have been for years! I am deaf in one ear and hard of hearing in the other one! I have been signing since I was a little kid. So needless to say, I was the one student with the interpreter growing up in school. Which means that I had to face many challenges that come with being the Deaf student in the public school! I have been told many times that I have a beautiful voice and speak clear, however I am a firm believer that when teaching ASL the voice is useless! I am not certified in interpreting but am a teacher of the Deaf and like I mentioned before I am a member of the Deaf community therefore I sign like a native! I look forward to meeting you and hopefully working with you or your child! Thank you for your interest in my profile!!

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.

Hard Of Hearing

I am hearing impaired, and have been using ASL since I was 10 years old. I live everyday of my life being hard of hearing.
I have worked at a school for the Deaf for 8 years working various jobs. Four of those years, I ran an Educational Resource Classroom, focused on tutoring middle school students. My full-time position at the school was a teacher's assistant for a middle school class.

I have a BA in WSG (Women Gender and Studies), and Deaf Ed. I also have a MA in Deaf Ed, and am a teacher of the Deaf.

Sign Language

I have been evaluated in order to teach Deaf students in ASL in the state of NJ. My evaluation was graded as a native signer. I have been signing since I was 10 years old. I was waived from taking ASL classes in college because my adviser evaluated me and said that I had already the ASL knowledge that was being taught in the classes. I have also worked at a school for the Deaf for 8 years, and I am a member of the Deaf community.
