About Karen

I started signing in 1992. I worked as a teachers assistant in Lexington Center for the Deaf. I moved on to vocational servics as a job coach with 23 clients.
I was accepted into the ITP at LaGCC and graduated in 2000 with honors.

I was hired as an on call ASL Medical interpreter for Elmhurst Hospital. I was then offered a part time position. In 2005 I was asked to take a full time staff position. I went from servicing 5 Deaf patients to 304 upon retirement.

I was asked to supervise my back up interpreter and also mentioned students who were interested in becoming Medical interpreters.

I enjoy sharing my knowledge of Deaf culture and assisting ASL students in becoming fluent.

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.

Sign Language

I've been involved with the Deaf community for 23 years. As a ASL Interpreter I mentored ASL students who took an interest in Medical Interpreting. I graduated with honors from LaGuardia community college with honors.

While working at Lexington Center for The Deaf I was a Teacher's Assistant. I assisted the class room teacher with daily subjects, and I have an abundance of patients.
