As your mentor, Trix will focus on you, providing individualized feedback and instruction in English/ASL translation and Deaf culture. Under the direction of an expert instructor, your skills will soar!
As I travel all around presenting my workshops, I encourage interpreters to look for mentors such as working with Deaf people, ASL instructors, Deaf Interpreters / Certified Deaf interpreters, and other interpreters. This is achieved most easily by asking a mentor for feedback and suggestions.
“I needed to find an RID Approved Sponsor (to work with for CEUs). … (One of) my co-workers … recommended Trix Bruce (saying that) Trix was an extremely efficient Sponsor and she replies back very quickly. …. My experiences with Trix have been nothing but POSITIVE! … Trix is extremely prompt in her replies to any emails I send her and is always fast to answer any questions I may have. She provided so much positive support for me, that the required paperwork felt effortless … Jack Nicholas said to Helen Hunt in the movie As Good as it Gets, ‘You make me want to be a better man’. Well, Trix Bruce makes me want to be a better interpreter. (Trix Bruce is) … amazing.”
Preparing for Your First Mentoring Session:
1) Video-record yourself with a presentation and script. We will watch this together and discuss the process of English/ASL translation.
2) Bring a list of your particular challenges. We’ll discuss ways to approach these challenges, such as storytelling, homework assignments, specific interpreting skill work, and so on.
3) Review handouts and resources and we will go over these, together.
Mentoring sessions are 50 minutes, or 90 minutes. There is a charge for all paperwork outside a mentoring session. RID CEUs are available.
It is my pleasure to work with interpreters, organizations, event organizers, and hosts to provide RID CEUs. Since 1999, I’ve been an RID Approved Sponsor, and it’s been so rewarding.
