About Thomas
I am born and have grown up Deaf. I regularly communicate in American Sign Language (ASL).

During my time at the Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT), I weekly met a few students and helped them with their ASL courses. I signed words and sentences to these students when they asked me questions.

After I have graduated from RIT, I have worked at two federal agencies for three years. At one of these federal agencies, I have participated in ASL courses by one-on-one signing words and sentences to tutees and by having these tutees copy these words and sentences in ASL.

I can provide ASL lessons in the alphabet, common signs, visual description, classifiers, sentence structure, facial expression, body language, specialized signs, and ethical or professional relationships with Deaf and Hard-of-Hearing people. In addition these le
ssons, I can explain how signs and sentence structure form.

About Ashleigh
I'm a former Spanish teacher who has taught taught levels 1-IV for the last 4 years. Prior to that, I lived in Germany as a military spouse where I taught yoga. Before Germany, I taught Spanish for two years at a private boarding school in Raleigh, North Carolina. My first teaching position, however, was in Granada, Spain where I taught English at a rural school near Granada, Spain having won a fellowship after university graduation.
Although my bachelors is in Spanish Language and Literature I am studying TESOL at American University where I have completed 12 credits in language assessment, second language acquisition and linguistics. My classes are engaging and personalized. For my athlete students, I find articles and clips about their sport that we build language around. I do the same for the interests of my other students, ther
eby making their connection to the language personal and intrinsic. In our tutoring sessions, there will be music, video and games! Because I am a teacher, I can help you liaise with your student's teacher in a way that will help us understand how to help your student.

About Patricia
Background & Experience:
I was born in Taiwan, my first language was Mandarin, then I learned English from my father at age 5. I've spent several years traveling back and forth between countries. I stayed mostly in the U.S. from 5th grade on until graduation, going back every two years to visit my grandmother. After I received my massage therapy certification, I decided to pursue an educational route because I come from a family of teachers. I went back to Taiwan to a boarding school. For class credit, I volunteered to be the English tutor, and to make extra money I tutored my professor who was the head of the technology
department. My most recent hire was translating for a 9 year old boy from China for a family in Chevy Chase.

Individual Lessons:
Each Lesson will be catered to the student. I specialize in simple conversational M
andarin and have the resources in finance, arts, entertainment, science, medicine, and political circles. Specialization in English translating and tutoring from Chinese to English also includes conversational in categories of finance, arts, entertainment, science, medicine, and politics.

Special Needs:
Working with special needs individuals requires patience and understanding of the spectrum of diverse needs. I have been working with IEP's for the last 2.5 years, and have hands on training with my now 5 year old daughter and 3 year old son with speech delay.
