About Rachel

Hello!

I have had 5 years of experience working with children within the school system- I worked as a sign language interpreter with kids in several elementary schools. I love working with kids and seeing them learn and grow. In addition to working with children in schools to teach sign language, I have also tutored children in a variety of subjects including reading, writing, math, history, and science up through the fourth grade level. I've worked as a teacher's aid for two years, helping children with completing classwork and gaining mastery over concepts taught within the classroom.

I am also a certified sign language interpreter with the state of Texas. I have completed 4 years of interpreting at the college level. I have 9 years of sign language interpreting experience under my belt. I've had the opportunity on multiple occasions to tutor children, adolescents, and adults in sign language. I approach teaching from a practical and positive framework, taking the time to get to know the students I work with and see what makes them tick.

Please don't hesitate to contact me, I would love to see if I would be a good tutoring fit for you and your family!

Have a fantastic day!

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.

Bible Studies

I was raised in a Christian household and was sent to many private schools my entire childhood. As such, I was in many Bible study classes. I am very familiar with how to conduct a Bible study, the tools involved in such study, and how to use that knowledge in an applicable way.

Hard Of Hearing

I am a certified interpreter in Texas. I have worked with Deaf and hard-of-hearing children and adults for over 7 years. I am knowledgeable about Deaf culture, the experience of growing up deaf, and the challenges of raising a deaf or hard-of-hearing child.

Sign Language

I am a certified sign language interpreter within the state of Texas, and have interpreted for children for the past three years. I have also tutored two children one-on-one for two summers in a row in sign language so they could better communicate with their deaf older sibling.

Patient and engaging — It can be awkward to display your ignorance to a new tutor, but Rachel put me at ease and made it fun. She taught me both new words and larger concepts, ways of "thinking" in ASL. Very helpful! ...
