Teaching/Tutoring

Hey everyone,

I am new here. I am Deafblind (have useable vision). I am fluent in ASL it was my first language as a child.  I went to college and completed an iTP program so I could understand the ins/outs of interpreting outside of being a client. I found it extremely useful. Unfortunately, due to COVID I have not been able to take my NIC written exam yet. I have been studying for the exam quite a bit. However, I feel the need to do something other than just that. I am offering teaching and tutoring if anyone needs/wants a tutor.

I am offering teaching and tutoring services for anyone who wants to learn.

I can teach:

ASL

Braille (visually, great for parents who want to learn alongside their kids)

Deafblind culture including haptics

I am willing to tutor:

ASL, braille, assistive tech, students in an ITP program who may need help with their coursework. (Understanding materials such as DCS process). I would be willing to give feedback on videos as people practice as well.

If there is something you need help with don’t be afraid to ask. I might be able to help. :)

All of this would be virtual, we would discuss the platform we want to use individually with each person, everyone has their preferences.

Some day. I hope to host workshops relating to Deafblind topics.

Since it would be virtual rates would vary based on the service and duration.

    • Hi there, my son is in 2nd grade and is nonverbal. He uses ASL to communicate yet he can hear enough that the teachers and aides just talk to him. They use a little bit of sign but no one in the school is fluent in ASL. Its frustrating toe as a parent to see such a lack of drive to learn it. I'm actually having a hard time with requesting it in his IEP because it's hard to advocate for him. I think it's an excellent idea to include ASL as a class in all schools. 
    • Hi there, I have a special needs son who is 8 and is mentally about the age of a 4 year old. We've know he has hearing loss since he was about 8 months old and so we started signing with him. In the last couple years his signing has come a long way thanks to signing videos and his need and want to communicate. He can hear at 40% in his left ear and a little better in his right so we definitely still verbalize everything while we are signing. The signing we are doing is more for main ideas b
    • I would love to have a signing practice buddy. Today is my 1st time on this site. If anyone knows of any other site that people meet on to practice signing I'm open to any suggestions. I am on Eastern Standard time, I live in North Carolina!
