About JK

Hi! I am a deaf woman who is fluent in ASL and have had more than 26 years experience teaching at the college and high school levels. I feel that in order to learn any language, you will have to use it. I can teach you grammar and rules, but in order to become fluent you will need to sign and practice using the target language. I will gear the sessions around themes and guide the conversation practices on that topic. You will develop both your receptive and expressive skills during each session.

I look forward to working with you to learn ASL, the fourth most widely used foreign 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.

Hard Of Hearing

I hold a certificate to teach Deaf/Hard-of-Hearing K-12.

My Masters degree is in Deaf Ed/Habilitation.

Sign Language

I have 26 years of experience teaching ASL. I have taught at the high school and college levels and was a certified interpreter for the Deaf. Both my BS and MS degrees are in Deaf Education. I have a progressive hearing loss and use ASL on a daily basis.
