About Sara

I started learning ASL when I was 15. That passion has grown into a career. I received an undergraduate degree in Deaf Rehab where I learned the adult aspect of education and job placement for individuals that are Deaf and hard if hearing.

I went on to get a masters in deaf education where I learned a holistic approach to teaching children who are Deaf and or hard of hearing. I have the following academic credentials: B.S rehab with a concentration in deafness and an M.S deaf education. Also, I am a Certified AI teacher.

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 have been learning American Sign Language since I was 15 years old. I took it as a foreign language in High school in place of Spanish. From that time on I have fallen in love with the language and the Culture. I hold a BS in Rehabilitation with a concentration in Deafness. I also a MS in Deaf education. In addition to that I hold a Texas certification in Deaf education and special education. I have also passed the signing portion of this certification. I have been teaching Deaf and hard of hearing children fro 7 years and am currently teaching PPCD.

Reading

I am a teacher of students who are Deaf and hard of hearing. A big part of my job is teaching reading to struggling readers. I understand that reading is a mixture of language, vocabulary, sight words, comprehension and fluency. I am aware of wonderful resources and I have had great outcomes with my students reading level.

Sign Language

I started learning sign language when I was 15 years old and have continued that love for learning over the past 15 years. I hold a BS in Rehab with a concentration in Deafness where I took 12 hours of concentration in advanced American sign language. I also hold a MS Deaf education where within my student teaching I acquired on site training. I currently have passed the signing test for Deaf education certification in Texas. I also am highly involved in the Deaf community locally in San Antonio.
