Good morning everyone. I have important news to announce regarding to new changes in my business.
From now on, I will be dedicating my valuable time and energy only to dedicated fluent A.S.L. students who are currently taking ASL classes Level 3 and up and to those who are studying to become an ASL interpreter or major in a career that requires to be fluent in advanced ASL.
I'll be also mentoring professional ASL Interpreters who are currently employed as a free lance sign language interpreter or VRI. (Video Relay Interpreter). I will still be tutoring local Colorado's ASL students who are in ITPs but they will have to come to my office - as I do not commute long drives to various schools, that's impractical for my limited schedule and health issues.
As usual, my office is open from Monday to Thursday, 10am to 5pm in the first 3 weeks of each month. There will be no more overtime hours extensions as my health cannot cope with overworking. Thank you for your understanding.
New news! I may be hired from an ASL interpreting agency to evaluate their interpreters - we're in the negotiating stage and they'll be testing my evaluation skills. I hope to get accepted.
Starting in September, I will be also increasing my rate from $25.00 to $26.00.
Now here are fun things I discovered that may be useful for you:
This is a cool website to learn any foreign language from home that is interactive - I tried it for Italian language and loved it. Its price is reasonable - it has auditory, visual and interactive tools to reinforce memorizing new vocabulary in full simple sentences.
I've had to increase my internet speed - it's now download is 40mb and upload is 20mb. I highly recommend all students who rely on webcam ASL tutoring to enhance the speed - meanwhile here are excellent tips to improve your wi-fi connection. Did you know that it's best to put your modem as high as you can like on a bookshelf for better reception!?

Someone asked me to paste his infographic - it's beautifully designed - thanks to technology, we are able to get education through it:
Online education is becoming more widely used thanks to recent developments which allow the student to learn more as they work on the material that they are given. There are many advantages to online education. The first is that the student is able to pace themselves as they work. It also gives them great flexibility in how they manage their time and provides them with skills that they would not be able to learn in any other way. Below, we will go over why each of these advantages is important.
Most online assignments are not timed. This allows the student to work at their own pace. In a classroom, the student is forced to keep up with the rest of the class. When they are working by themselves online, they can progress through the lesson at their own pace. This will allow them to take in more of information which will better prepare them for future lessons.
Unlike a classroom where the student is expected to show up at a specific time, online education allows them to start and stop when they want to. The flexibility that online education provides makes it easier for the student to balance school with the rest of their life including their job. School is an expensive and it is important that the student is able to work while they earn an education. The flexibility of online education allows them to more easily do that.
Independent online education teaches the student important lessons in responsibility. It is easy to put something off that they are not required to start at a certain time. The freedom that online education provides forces the student to learn the importance of time management and responsibility.
If the student finds that they need some personal help to go along with their online education, they can turn to high school tutoring for that. In this way, they will be able to get the help that they need in person just as they would in a classroom.
