I am an Educational Interpreter working in the K-12 school system as well as work with a Non-Profit that teaches beginner level ASL classes. I specialize in teaching beginner level American Sign Language for children and parents who are new to the language. I do this because learning a new language must be applied in ways that are easily comprehensive to both youngsters and adults.

Classes with me can vary from novel learning to advanced conversational sign language. Looking to learn basic, every day vocabulary? I've got you! Looking for an hour of immersion practice and signing? I've got you there too!

I am willing to be flexible with how I tutor, based on your needs. However, I specialize in working with children and teaching parents and children basic signs they'll need for everyday communication and needs.

About Taryn W.

Hi Y'all!

My name is Taryn and I am currently an Educational Interpreter with the K-12 School Systems based in Colorado.

I'm 23 and have been signing since I was 13 years old. I love to hike, bike, run and do all the fun outdoor things!

American Sign Language is my passion and I am dedicated to teaching the language to everyone interested.

I specialize in working with children ages 5 - 18 years old and also work with a non-profit here in Colorado that teaches beginner level American Sign Language to both children and adults.

My perspective is that wherever you are at in life, American Sign Language can help you no matter what.

I am heavily involved in the Deaf community and it's my passion to teach sign as well as continue learning myself. I consider myself to be a lifelong learner.

Experience

Educational Interpreter
Sep 2019 - Present

Weld RE4 School District

Educational Interpreters are a part of IDEA (Individual's with Disabilities in Education) act, and are considered to be related service providers. In my work as an educational interpreter, I work for the school district and am a necessary part of relaying educational information as well as fostering social and cognitive development for the children I service. Given I work in the school system, I interpret a number of things from educational content, to social situations. My speciality is early childhood and working with youth while interpreting.

Caretaker for Deaf Children
Aug 2010 - Present

Self-Employeed

I have had many years experience working with children who are Deaf, Hard-of-Hearing, and H.I.. I love kiddos and specialize in being able to nanny for long periods of time, immersed in the language to care for them while parents and caretakers are unavailable. This immersion experience has provided me not only with excess vocabulary, but understanding of how the family unit functions when a foreign language is used and the primary means of communication. I have nannied for a number of families over the years.
