Private American Sign Language Teacher

Experienced teacher with 9 years of practice in the language and over 5 years of tutoring. Comfortable teaching ages 4 and up, as well as deaf or hard of hearing individuals. I'm very aware that everyone has different reasons for learning this beautiful language. I have tutored individuals who are late deafened, non verbal, selective mutism, those who want to learn Baby Sign Language, and others who want to become fluent at a conversational level. Each lesson is tailored to the goals and needs of the individual student. When you sign up with me you also gain access to my personal resource library where I have a multitude of resources for vocabulary, grammar, Deaf Culture, ASL stories, and much more that you can view at your own leisure. Come sign with me!

Private American Sign Language Teacher

Taught American Sign Language (ASL) full-time and part-time (nights) for 39 years, just recently retired from full-time teaching. I have primarily used Signing Naturally (SN) workbooks, all levels. I have also used Learning American Sign Language (LASL).
Currently, I am teaching Deaf Culture as an online course at San Diego Mesa College.

I have received valuable experience from Deaf peers of Deaf parents, Deaf adults and Deaf leaders. In this sense, I am a native user of ASL and ASL Fingerspelled Signs.
Graduated from Gallaudet College (University) in Washington, D.C. with a B.S. in Business Administration. I received two Masters degrees from California State University, Northridge, one in Deaf Education and the other in Educational Administration. I received my Doctoral degree in Educational Leadership from University of Southern California ...

Identifying a hearing loss in infants is critical, because the first three years of life are crucial for speech and language development and it’s important for all children to have linguistic input from birth.
