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.

Sign Language

I excelled in my first American Sign Language class in the 10th grade and proceeded to take the progressive courses that my high school offered. I also took Psychology and graduated with an Advanced Diploma in 2005. Immediately following graduation, I enrolled at Germanna Community College and became certified in American Sign Language in 2009 and in 2010, became certified as a Paraprofessional Counselor. I currently have two clients, one whom I teach and one I tutor. My methods obviously differ between the two, when I tutor I facilitate a very relaxed, fun way of communicating utilizing ASL to appropriate the student's level of skill and which areas need work. In a teaching situation, I start at the beginning and with the basic building blocks of the language. Each session is then individualized to be precursory to the next and structured based on the pace of the student.
