Bio

Hello,

I have been an Educational Sign Language Interpreter for 10 years now, interpreting mostly for secondary students in all subjects. I took two years of ASL at Seattle Central Community College and two years at The American Sign Language Institute of Seattle where I also took classes in deaf culture. While I was going to school I worked full time almost exclusively with deaf adults. I learned so much from them and realize the importance of socializing with the deaf community...

Hello,

I have been an Educational Sign Language Interpreter for 10 years now, interpreting mostly for secondary students in all subjects. I took two years of ASL at Seattle Central Community College and two years at The American Sign Language Institute of Seattle where I also took classes in deaf culture. While I was going to school I worked full time almost exclusively with deaf adults. I learned so much from them and realize the importance of socializing with the deaf community to develop a first hand understanding of their culture and beautiful language.

When I decided to go back to college to study ASL, becoming an interpreter was a distant dream. I fell in love with the language, culture and of course the wonderful people who helped give me the gift of their language. I have never looked back and love my job. Often times hearing students will ask me to teach them or help them out with a project they have in their ASL class. I enjoy passing it on and along with teaching them how to respect deaf culture.

I am very exited to become an ASL tutor and feel I can help support whatever you are learning in a fun and creative way. Be prepared to feel motivated to learn more after our session is finished!

Highly recommended

My daughter reports Wendy is doing a great job helping her with ASL. Wendy loves ASL, has a great philosophy, and is really enthusiastic about helping others learn. Wendy has been really easy to work with. She has been flexible about scheduling and location and stayed in touch to ensure we are on the same page. I would highly recommend Wendy as a tutor for ASL!
