Hi! Welcome to Athena Sky Interpreting. I am a federally certified “geek” court interpreter with over a decade of experience in the field. I have spent years studying interpreting technique, culminating in my Master’s Degree in Conference Interpreting from Glendon College. I provide interpreting and translation services in Spanish, English and French. But mostly, I teach.
I have been coaching “prospective geeks” to pass their interpreting exams since 2013. My students have demonstrated remarkable success. Athena Sky Interpreting alumni run language services offices, promote language access and preside over national organizations. Many are now state and federally certified court interpreters, working independently or with full-time staff positions. Still others have gained credentials in medical interpreting or earned their Master’s degrees after receiving my tutelage. However, they all have one thing in common: They understand that it takes time to build their skills and know there is no substitute for hard work.
Classes are available for interpreters of all languages. I provide online skills-building courses with options for continuing education credit. I also provide private coaching during which I give individualized feedback and help create a personalized study plan. If you’re a geek like me, you’ll love my courses!
