About Colette


Bio

Currently, I attend graduate school for audiology, which is a branch of medical science that aims to understand how and why we hear the way we do. Through this field, I have learned acoustics - a discipline in physics that requires a background in mathematics in order to fully comprehend its components. I have given lectures on audiology and other health-related information for national conferences that earned attention from major organizations.

Currently, I attend graduate school for audiology, which is a branch of medical science that aims to understand how and why we hear the way we do. Through this field, I have learned acoustics - a discipline in physics that requires a background in mathematics in order to fully comprehend its components. I have given lectures on audiology and other health-related information for national conferences that earned attention from major organizations.

My tutoring experience comes from working as a speech-language pathology assistant where one-on-one training/teaching was provided to children who struggled with reading and writing, mathematics, speech articulation, and/ or pragmatics. This job opened my eyes to how rewarding this type of work is. Without some form of help, I think we would all fail. Tutoring provides students with the tools they need to succeed and I am honored to provide this service.

For those of you seeking to learn a new language, I am able to teach sign-language at the beginning, intermediate and intermediate-advanced levels. I grew up with this language because of my own hearing loss which was diagnosed at 17 months of age. What better way to learn a new language than from someone who grew up using it?

To ensure students have a quiet place to learn and study, I am willing to make reasonable accommodations. Most sessions are held in the students home, but I offer online lessons as well.
I try to be flexible with my time. While I do have a 24-hour cancellation policy, I offer make-up classes.

I look forward to meeting you and am excited to be provided with the opportunity to help you succeed!

Sign Language

I started learning American Sign-Language at age six and continued learning, using and refining the language throughout elementary, middle and high school. I have tutored a high school student in ASL and helped teach a basic sign-language course in college. I am qualified to tutor basic, intermediate and intermediate-advanced courses. It is my recommendation that if you are ready to master this language, than you should immerse yourself in the Deaf culture and interact with Deaf people so that true mastery is achieved.

Hard of Hearing

First and foremost, I am a successful hearing impaired individual who is already on the path to assisting others with hearing loss by attending graduate school for audiology. Secondly, my undergraduate degree is in Communication Disorders and Deaf education, which qualifies me to assist others with various aspects of their hearing impairment.

Profoundly patient, resourceful, and dedicated

I could not have asked for more from Colette working with my children but more time! She has the patience of a Saint, she never stops moving - whatever the children tried to shift their attention she went with them and then applied it to the lesson, and she's truly a pleasure for our family to spend time with. Knowledgeable, flexible, and genuinely kind. She is an exceptional opportunity for any family or student.

Helpful and Flexible Tutor

I was impressed by Colette’s knowledge of ASL and felt that she helped me grasp the sentence structure of the language better. Since the purpose of the lesson was in preparation for a job interview that was partially in ASL, role playing with responses to various interview questions was necessary. Colette did a good job of getting me to practice my receptive skills by not speaking and signing the interview questions only. She also asked me the questions I prepared in random order which provided me more of a challenge and she suggested some variations in my interview responses. I learned several new words during the tutoring session and incorporated some of them into the interview I had with a deaf individual after the lesson was over. The lesson helped me a great deal because I shortly after my interview, I found out that I got the job!

A wonderful tutor!!

My session with Colette was great! She was so patient and understanding about my sign language needs and made me feel comfortable about my signing level. Looking forward to my next session with her!

Colette taught me sign language using some poetry I had selected. She was very flexible adjusting to my current level of skill.
