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 earned three years of professional experience at two federal agencies. 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 lessons, I can explain how signs and sentence structure form.
I tutored American Sign Language (ASL) as part of my participation in community service. I weekly and one-on-one met tutees. These tutees and I signed together. I used “Basic Course in American Sign Language” authored by Tom Humphries in the tutoring sessions.
