About Kathy

Hey! My name is Kathy and I live in Plano, Texas. I don't have any professional tutoring or teaching experience, but both my parents, my sister, numerous aunts and my grandmother are all teachers, so it's in my blood! I look forward to helping students improve their signing skills and knowledge of the Deaf community. I love helping people open up their hearts and minds to the wonderful world of ASL and the Deaf community! I can help you with sign production and clarity, fingerspelling and numbers; I can quiz you on Deaf Culture and history; I can help you come up with many different options in expressing an idea in ASL; I can just be someone you chat with to keep you skills up! The possibilities are endless!

I took my first ASL class in my sophomore year of high school. During those 3 years, I was in the Deaf Culture Club, was involved in 2 signed theater/musical interpretation shows, and earned the ASL Honor Society's Laurent Clerc Medal. I then moved to New Mexico to complete my B.S. in Signed Language Interpreting. During those 4 years I took many ASL classes, Deaf Culture classes, an ASL Linguistic class, numerous Interpreting classes, and 300 hours of a supervised practicum experience. For the past two years, I have lived in Plano, working as a Signed Language Interpreter. I have passed 3 different national or state tests (NIC Knowledge, TEP and BEI) to become certified as an interpreter. Since I don't interpret a full 40 hour week, I was wanting to fill in my off hours with ASL tutoring!

As a working interpreter, I am used to rearranging my schedule at the drop of a hat. So feel free to contact me for last minute help! I just may not always be available. Please contact me to learn more and schedule lessons with me!
