About Japheth


Bio

My name is Japheth but feel free to call me Jay! I know the struggles that many students have when learning a new language so I would like to do everything I can to explain complicated concepts in easier terms. I will never forget my college Professors who actually took the time to clarify the coursework instead of deeming me as a lost cause. I like adapting my lesson plans to the student because everyone learns differently.

I graduated cum laude with an Associate Degree in Interpreting...

My name is Japheth but feel free to call me Jay! I know the struggles that many students have when learning a new language so I would like to do everything I can to explain complicated concepts in easier terms. I will never forget my college Professors who actually took the time to clarify the coursework instead of deeming me as a lost cause. I like adapting my lesson plans to the student because everyone learns differently.

I graduated cum laude with an Associate Degree in Interpreting Training Technology. I interned as a American Sign Language Interpreter in a High School and have worked directly with the students there. I myself was a student learning Sign Language, so I understand exactly what students can do to learn this amazing language. I have also completed Educational Teaching courses!

We are in this together. I am open to any suggestions you have that will help your experience even smoother. Whether you are learning ASL in K-12, College, or you are trying to learn a language as a hobby, I am willing to help you. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions and I will reply to you quickly.

I studied American Sign Language and Interpreting for years and was able to earn cum laude and an Associate degree in the field. I have interned as a Sign Language interpreter and have attended many workshops to refine my skills in the language. I have also passed the Test of English Proficiency (TEP), thus I am also able to help those that I tutor with choosing Sign Language and English equivalents.

Excellent, supportive tutor

In the first class we reviewed the alphabet, spelling, and 1-20 numbers. It was super helpful to have his feedback and to practice reading his signs as well. He was great and very professional. My next class with Japheth is booked.

Highly recommended tutor, insightful and organized.

Japheth is a great ASL tutor, he comes to each lesson prepared with learning objectives and helpful resources. In additional to the technicalities of ASL, he helped me understand how to improve my receptive skills with examples of real world Deaf signing, breaking it down in detail in a way no books or other teachers have done for me. Also, he was very flexible in adapting to my own learning style and answering my contextual questions.

Patient & Knowledgeable

J has helped me so much so far and I can’t wait to continue learning from him. He explains and simplifies the language to ensure comprehension. He comes prepared with lessons in case I don’t have anything specific I want to go over. And he is super patient making sure that I understand ASL grammar and how non manual markers should be used.

Fantastic 1st Lesson

I’m 62. I was nervous about online lessons. I was blown away by how professional and knowledgeable Jay is!! I learned a lot. Don’t let his youth fool you. He’s a pro!!
