I have a lot of experience working one on one and in small groups due to my work as a counselor. I love to help people set goals and then see them to fruition. It is especially wonderful to assist people in learning to communicate with one another. It is especially important for parents of deaf children to be able to communicate with their children using American Sign Language. This is often an area that is overlooked. Children's needs are so carefully tended to and their language is developed, while parents fall behind in their ASL skills and then find themselves unable to communicate effectively with their beloved children.

I have a Masters in Counseling of the Hearing Impaired - and have worked in a few schools for the Deaf. I worked as an ASL interpreter for many years in a variety of situations. This has given me the opportunity to develop my ASL skills with both children and adults in many varied situations. I have offered one-on-one counseling in ASL, group counseling, interpreting in many different scenarios, including but not limited to medical, legal, personal interviews, employment meetings/job interviews, parent/teacher meetings, large presentations,and social situations.

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.

I hold a Master's Degree in Counseling of the Hearing Impaired from Gallaudet University. I have worked many years in Schools for the Deaf - both as residential counselor and a school counselor - communicating with clients totally in American Sign Language. I have also spent many years as a freelance interpreter working in a variety of settings.
