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!
