Amber covered a lot of ground in 30 minutes but was very clear in her explanations. I also felt very comfortable, which is so important!

She has helped me and 2 year old daughter become more fluent with ASL and she does a very great job 👍🏽 We will continue to grow with her. Thanks for your support and help!
Tamsin
Amber is fantastic with kids as well as kind and patient. She is a native speaker of ASL and can answer any question you have about it. Unfortunately for the last few months she's missed about every third class without even an apology. For the last two weeks she's completely no showed to lessons and is no longer responding to email.

I learned ASL from the Deaf Community over 35 years ago so, I understand the cultural aspects of the language in addition to its linguistics. I received my AAS through an interpreter training program in 2010. Since 1998, I have been both an Educational and a Medical Interpreter through various agencies in my area. I am state certified and hold EIPA (Educational Interpreter Performance Assessment) credentials as well.
