I graduated with a degree in Business Management and a specialization in American Sign Language. I have previously worked as a teacher for the company, Mad Science. I developed a teaching style that has children feel they are listened to, with none of their questions going unanswered. I'm extremely patient and have a lot of fun being around kids of all ages. These attributes were solidified after working as a private nanny my last few years of high school. I have a lot of fun with my students and want them to get the most out of the experience and special attention I provide.
I prepared myself to go back to school to get a second degree in nursing. I love A&P, Microbiology, Chemistry and Sign Language!

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.
I've worked for a private company called Mad Science as a teacher for pre-k through 5th grade. I was trained to teach multiple types of classes in a really fun and entertaining manner. Ranging from Kitchen Chemistry to Weather Wonders (pre-k) to Slime. All of the classes were meant to be really fun with multiple experiments and concoctions included. I find it really important to learn with your students, to get involved and show an interest in whatever subject they are studying.
I am fluent in American Sign Language.
I am proficient in reading lips and articulating clearly for those who have hearing impediments.

I started signing in the fall of 2007 at the University of Houston. I have since completed ASL 1-3 and am finishing ASL 4. I was the first accepted student in to the University of Houston's Interpreting program for Interpreting ASL. My teacher has asked me to be his teachers' aide next fall to personally interpret for him since he is deaf. I have tutored other students in the subject since ASL 1. I had no previous experience or exposure to ASL and exude mastery in the subject. I was fluent after only 3 months and feel confident in being able to teach anyone basic skills and words in the language. (Anywhere from ASL 1-4 and fingerspelling)
