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.
