About Melissa

I am an American Sign Language interpreter who has 5 years tutoring experience. My method is to provide or reinforce a strong foundation in American Sign Language by focusing on grammar, facial expression, and the tools needed for clear signing and confident conversation.

I have learned over the years that certain concepts can be of great benefit to beginners but are not always introduced until later in the student's education. I have found if these same concepts are introduced at the beginning, it leads to a stronger foundation in American Sign Language.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Sign Language

I currently hold an A.A.S degree in American Sign Language Interpreting. I am currently pursuing my B.A. in Sign Language Interpreting and am expected to graduate at the end of this year. I have taken 8 classes in American Sign Language (ASL levels 1-6, Structure of ASL, and ASL finger spelling). I have also done extensive independent studies as well as continuing education on the subject of American Sign Language. Regarding my tutoring experience, I worked as an ASL tutor for Community College of Philadelphia and have tutored ASL independently for a total of 5 years experience.
