About Tali

I started working when I was 14 years old. My age was irrelevant if my work was of excelled caliber. I attended an international boarding school in Ojai, California. Overnight, I became an international private tutor, working closely with American, Chinese, Taiwan, Mexican, and Korean citizenry. More than 15 years have passed and I have expanded to offer additional expertise (found under Services tab). In April of 2018, I decided to settle roots in Texas and have renamed my business as “That Tali Appleby.” My logo is a pictogram of my name.

My personal goal is to become a polyglot (someone who can speak several languages). While English is my native language, I can also read, write, and speak (non-natively) in Spanish, conversational in American Sign Language, and I am currently studying Mandarin Chinese. I am ambitious, perhaps my next goal shall be to offer my services in a multilingual capacity upon language excellence.

The calendar was born from a need I saw in my local deaf community. This is a volunteer capacity of mine. It is my hope to encourage interaction by providing information of events and by hosting my own ASL socials.

Thank you for stopping by. If I can be of use to you, please let me know.
