About Beverly

Hello,

My name is Beverly, and I'm very interested in tutoring very young children (preschoolers) up to and including 5th or 6th grades. I'm also very interested in teaching every day sign language to children and adults. I'm currently enrolled in a degree-seeking program at Troy University in the ASL-ITP (American Sign Language Interpreter Training Program). I'm also an active candidate for employment at MCS as an interpreter for the deaf and H-O-H (hard-of-hearing). I've been evaluated via EIPA (Educational Interpreter Performance Assessment with a passing score, deeming me qualified to interpret in a classroom setting. My specialty is working with young children teaching all subjects which prepare them for school. I'm quite fluent in ASL, English, grammar, punctuation, writing, sentence structure, spelling, proofreading, typing, Microsoft programs including Word, Outlook, and Windows.

My real passion so to tutor deaf and/or hard-of-hearing children or "speaking" children up to and including 5th or 6th grade. This would be a great opportunity to build my resume for college and beyond, while at the same time enjoying what I do best which is teaching children!

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.

ACT Reading

Excellent reading skills as I'm also a medical transcriptionist by trade, which required classes in extensive transcribing of medical records, English composition, punctuation, excellent spelling, proofreading, sentnce structure, etc. Also, I'd taught both of my sons to read by age 2. When they'd entered 1st grade, the 29 and 14-year-old were reading on 4th and 5th-grade levels, respectively.

English

English is definitely one of my strong points, especially because I am a medical transcriber by trade. It requires extensive knowledge and strong skills in English, grammar, sentence structure, punctuation, reading, proofreading, and spelling. I made continuous high marks in high school and beyond, and I would love to tutor a very young child in grades 1 through 6.

Grammar

Excellent English, grammar, skills as I'm also a medical transcriber by trade, which required classes in extensive transcription of medical records. Requirements of a medical transcriber also include a high level of skills in English composition, punctuation, excellent spelling, reading, proofreading, sentence structure, etc.

Microsoft Word

Worked for the State of Tennessee for over 22 years, so I have extensive skills having used Microsoft Word since 1988.

Reading

My name is Beverly M., and this is one of my favorite subjects and favorite things to do. I taught my two boys, ages 29 and 14 (the 14-year-old attends private school in Collierville and remains an "A" student) to read myself. I started very early teaching them both to read (ages 2 and 2 1/2), and by the time they were in 1st grade, they were reading on 4th and 5th grade levels! I also taught my stepson to read very well when my husband began keeping him. I taught my children the ABC's and to recognize the letters of alphabet before they were 20 months. They learned the days of the week, months of the year, spelled their names, learned their address and phone number, the planets, the states the their capitols, and most of the presidents BEFORE first grade, and while they were still attending daycare. I taught my 14-year-old phonics with flash cards and cards with pictures of animals which I'd purchased from Walmart when he was 20 months. I absolutely love working with very young children. I also taught my 14-year old basic algebra when he was about 5 years old. My 29-year-old could write his name in cursive at age 4. I hope you will allow me to work with your son. This is something that I truly enjoy, seeing kids learn and be ahead of their class, and I know that I can do the same with your child; just give me that chance! You will not regret it!

Sign Language

Hello, my name is Beverly, and I'm an individual who grew up with siblings (one sister and one brother) who both have a congenital hearing loss. I grew up using sign language, so I've about 50 years of experience. I've been evaluated via EIPA by an administrator from TSD (Tennessee School for the Deaf) as a deaf interpreter and was deemed qualified to interpret for a 9th grade student for Memphis City Schools, and I'm awaiting approval for me to fill that position. (I do have a copy of that evaluation for your viewing if you desire to view it.) I'm also currently enrolled at Troy University in their ASL ITP (American Sign Language Interpreter Training Program), studying for my BS degree in interpreting. I also plan to take some courses at Deaf Connect in order to further my skills an education in ASL interpreting/sign language.

I look forward to working with future families in tutoring not only the deaf and hard-of-hearing but speaking children as well. In five years, I see myself continuing to do contractural tutoring, as well as conduct classes to teach baby signs and beginning signs for regular "hearing" children as studies show that learning a second language is fun and has many developmental benefits. ASL stimulates learning through different senses. Sign language is a blessing for children that are "visual", "spatial" or "tactile learners." Learning a second language raises your child's IQ. One in ten Americans have some degree of hearing loss. Knowing a few signs can give your child the confidence to engage and interact with a deaf child rather than both children feeling awkward and helpless. Thank you in advance for this wonderful opportunity to not only help your family, but to help myself as well as I began paving a road to meet my educational, professional, and personal goals!
