Hi! I have three years of tutoring experience as a faculty tutor at the NTID Learning Lab. I am still working at a tutor at the NLC as well as tutoring 1:1 while pursuing a degree in ASL-English Interpreting. I truly enjoy my job and have been told by members of the faculty that I should study for a Masters in Secondary Education. As good of a college professor as I have the potential be, I know my skills are much more effective in a smaller scale, more direct environment.
I feel rewarded when my students recognize that their hard work has paid off. I'm proud when they have reworked a piece until they feel content with it and then receive a good grade, but I am more proud when they put in the energy and time to understand the concepts and analyze them independently. Being a tutor is not always a walk in the park. If a student is unmotivated there is very little learning that can take place. So, finding an effective method of encouraging focus and motivation is half the battle and a skill of tact that I have been honing for these past few years.
My Bachelor's degree is in Writing and Fine Art. Which explain why I'm back in school (hehe). For many years writing has been a hobby of mine; short stories, essays, research. I'm a passionate reader and encourage my students to follow suit as, among other things, a way to continue improving English Skills (practically through osmosis).
I have been a part of the deaf community my whole life, now even more than ever. I have the personal connection, history, education, and skills to work effectively with those with hearing loss.
Sign Language is as much a part of me as the English language. Apart from having the luxury of signing with my parents and family friends my entire life, I have devoted the past three years to intense study and practice of the language.
I look forward to meeting with you and working along side you to accomplish your goals! Hi! I have three years of tutoring experience as a faculty tutor at the NTID Learning Lab.

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.
I am more than qualified to tutor American Sign Language because of my family history, current jobs, and degree of study. I was raised by two deaf parents. Apart from the wealth of language I learned, I have spent more than half my life with the deaf community. I have been an English tutor for deaf college students at the National Technical Institute for the Deaf for three years. I am currently pursuing a degree in ASL Interpreting as well as working as a freelance ASL interpreter.
