About Fina

I have experience in teaching Sign Language courses since 1993 and I have had taught Middle School Science and Math courses for more than 6 years. Addition, I taught theatre workshops across the country. I was Math Coach twice at Austine School for the Deaf for Middle School Math Completion in Rochester, New York.

I received B.A. Degree in Biology from Gallaudet University and received M.S. Degree in Secondary Education in Science and Deaf
Education from Rochester Institute of Technology.

I feel that it is important for everyone to learn new things in their daily life. My quote is "Never stop learning till death". It is how students have right to access to the language. I believe that two-way communication between the tutor and the student is an important part of language access. I would emphasize that the knowledge will be installed in every student. As a tutor, I will always learn from the students as they learn from me. I would make a commitment that the students will get quality education.

I can provide sign language lessons by online sessions for individuals who is not able to meet in person.

If you are interested in having tutor for sign language, basic math, history and basic science. Also, I can provide lessons about job readiness to deaf adults.
