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.

Reading

Hi. I've been an avid reader all my life. I started reading at age 5 and haven't stopped since. I enjoy reading both fiction & non-fiction. I have BS degree in ASL-English Interpreting and MA degree in Counseling. It would be my pleasure to help anyone learn, discover or just polish up on their reading & comprehension skills.

Sign Language

My name is Alicia J and I am a (RID) nationally, certified American Sign Language (ASL) interpreter.

I have been interpreting in the field professionally for 10yrs. I received my AAS degree in Deaf Culture 1999 from UCC (Union County College), Plainfield, NJ. I then proceeded to obtain my BS degree in ASL-English Interpreting from Northeastern University, Boston, MA 2003, and completed my post grad education 2006 at Galluadet University,Washington DC earning my MA degree in Mental Health Counseling. (Galluadet University also happens to be the ONLY deaf university in the world.)

To become a certified ASL interpreter there is a 2 part exam. One is written and the other is a recorded performance test-that evaluates your receptive and expressive skills. The performance is evaluated by other ASL-Interpreters and deaf people in the field. Upon passing & meeting all requirements, you are then certified. Certification can ONLY come from RID, The Registry of Interpreters for the Deaf.

I interpret in various settings: elementary, high schools, colleges, government, state, medical and mental health environments. Continuing education is mandatory in maintaining certification. Therefore, I often attend workshops and comfortable working in large or small group settings.

As a freelance interpreter I'm constantly meeting & engaging with new people everyday. I find it to be a privilege to bridge the communication gap between the Hearing & Deaf world on a daily basis. I would be honored to help anyone seeking to learn more about ASL or just brush-up on their signing skills.

While tutoring will greatly involve learning "signs" to communicate there is a deaf culture component that is critical in mastering ASL that will be part of the learning process.

You will find me in good-standing with all certifications which can be verified.
