I am a coda. (Child of Deaf Adults). I have been an professional sign language interpreter for deaf children in the school system now for 10 years. I have also been a professional community sign language interpreter for 10 years. I have done both the medical field an other fields. I am very passionate about teaching sign language to those who are looking to learn and to use it to assist the deaf.
I am force on helping students to be fluent and understand the language. I also force not only on students being fluent but also for students to be able to understand the deaf person. Finger spelling can be one of the hardest things to understand so I like to force on being able to read finger spelling. Any area that a student wants to force on or need help in the most I am flexible in helping in those areas. I will set up lesson plans to meet the area the student needs to work on. Also I ask that I receive feed back and am open to any suggestions that would make it easier for the student to be able to learn,.
Since I am a coda sign language was the main language in my house. I consider it my first language. I have personally seen the struggle deaf people can have in the hearing world. It is very important they have good interpreters for them. Being that I have also been professionally interpreting for so long I have had deaf people tell me both the positive and the negatives of interpreters. Having feed back from the deaf helps me to be able to help the student be the most successful interpreter.
Even though I require a 24 hour cancellation notice I do know that some times last minute emergencies can happen. If an emergencies does happen just let me know. Also if for some reason a cancellation does happen I am willing to do a make up session.
I don't mind traveling to meet you at a convent place for both of us. Also I try try to be flexible on the time.
I look forward to hearing from you and helping you to achieve your goals.
