Bio

By profession, I am an American Sign Language Educational Interpreter. For the last 20+ years of my life, I have spent the majority of my time working in the classroom with K-12 and post-secondary students. Initially, over 35 years ago, I learned ASL through association with the Deaf Community. Later, I returned to the classroom and obtained an Associates Degree in Interpreter Training. I am a member of RID and NAIE and have an EIPA certificate, which verifies I have the skills required...

By profession, I am an American Sign Language Educational Interpreter. For the last 20+ years of my life, I have spent the majority of my time working in the classroom with K-12 and post-secondary students. Initially, over 35 years ago, I learned ASL through association with the Deaf Community. Later, I returned to the classroom and obtained an Associates Degree in Interpreter Training. I am a member of RID and NAIE and have an EIPA certificate, which verifies I have the skills required to work in the classroom.
I have taught ASL to Continuing Education students at community colleges, local high schools, hospitals and work places (e.g., FedEx). In my lesson plan, I incorporate all the features of ASL so students can gain a comfortable grasp of the language and also teach the importance of Deaf culture.
In addition, I excel at math concepts up to the level of Algebra. My knowledge of these subjects has been checked by Wyzant through skills tests. Although it is not my area of expertise, as is ASL, I have tutored Deaf students who need to improve their comprehension of math and so have an excellent grasp of the concepts required to understand this daunting subject.

She worked with me at my level

I am sure I will need a tutor in the future and will plan to work with Leslie. She was so knowledgeable and because I am in my first year, was flexible to make the sentences more manageable for me.

Sally, 2 lessons with Leslie

Skilled interpreter, dedicated to promoting good language skills in others

Leslie goes the extra mile. She cares deeply about her students' progress. She has extensive experience in education, and works to tailor her approach to her students' current and future needs for growth.

Judith, 19 lessons with Leslie

Knowledgeable and Extremely Helpful

Leslie, helped me extremely with my tutoring sessions for ASL. From the first meeting to the last, she was able to teach me how to sign in a respectful and attentive way. When I had family emergencies, she was able to reschedule our sessions without a charge which I found to be unbelievably nice and accommodating. She was nothing short of knowledgeable with the history, culture, and communication for ASL. Her lessons helped me achieve two A's in my ASL classes that were condensed into only two months. I highly recommended her to anyone who has a passion of curiosity for ASL and needs an expert tutor to help them with learning the ropes. Easily one of the best tutors I've had and would recommended her to anyone.

Lee, 9 lessons with Leslie

Great tutor

Leslie tutors my daughter and is wonderful with her teachings. My daughter is excited to continue working with her. My daughter self taught herself to a large degree, and I’m confident that Leslie will be able to assist her even more.

Alexis, 6 lessons with Leslie

Friendly, Helpful, and Patient

My wife and I reached out to Leslie to help my son who was overwhelmed with his ASL class. There was a lot at stake since my son needed to get his grade in the class to a certain level to maintain a required GPA. Leslie came thru in a friendly and patient manner. Our only regret is not retaining her services sooner.

Dee, 7 lessons with Leslie

Amazing tutor!

Leslie is a great ASL teacher. She has been working with my ten year old daughter for almost a year. She is patient and kind. She understands how to teach kids. My daughter has learned so much and looks forward to her lessons with Leslie. I would suggest Leslie as a tutor for ASL!

Shannon, 42 lessons with Leslie

Wonderful to work with

Leslie definitely kept me going through the course even at time when I just wanted to give up. I love that she prefers to always start with the basics, I will never forget my ABC's or numbers in sign language because she drilled that into my hard skull. Would definitely recommend her.
