Cincinnati State Technical College (Interpreter Training)
I am a Cincinnati State alumni and have been an active Sign Language interpreter for the deaf and hard of hearing for 10+ years. I continue to mentor current Interpreter Training Program students at CS as well. I have a passion for the Deaf community and I strive to interpret with integrity and encourage equitable communication and interactions between Deaf and hearing consumers. I developed and taught American Sign Language at the high school level for 4 years and thoroughly enjoyed it.
I wholeheartedly believe that the knowledge and skills I possess are a direct result of being a tutor/mentor for so many years. I find that when I give feedback and direction it causes me to rehearse and refine the information given, the mode of feedback that's suitable for each student, and help the student apply the feedback to their work. In essence, both the tutor/mentor and student leave each session enlightened.
Flexibility is part of my makeup so if transportation, cancellation, lesson issues arise we can discuss the issue and decide on the best possible solution for both of us and move forward.
A high rate of success at the high school level and exemplary rapport with the Deaf community and my colleagues makes me strive for excellence in every area of my professional journey.
I look forward to meeting you and helping you on your road to success!

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 hold an interpreting degree and have been actively working in the Tri-state area for 10+ years. I interpret in medical, educational (K-12 and postsecondary), stage/platform, and community settings. I developed curriculums and taught ASL 1, 2, and 3 for Cincinnati Public Schools for 4 years. I also mentor Cincinnati State Interpreter Training students which includes interactive feedback sessions.
