Private American Sign Language Teacher

I teach and tutor in American Sign Language from the perspective of one who came into ASL and the Deaf community without a thought of being a professional in a related field. Still, I did become a professional interpreter, teacher, tutor, mentor and have been a service-provider, advocate and friend with many Deaf since 1984.

I want my students to learn that fear and anxiety in undertaking a new adventure are usually of our own making, and that learning about other cultures and languages by association with native users is so valuable.

Therefore, my classes are highly interactive and immersive; students will be required often to learn voice-off, role-play sign language / deaf experience situations, complete tasks between classes, and engage fully. Focus will be on conversational quality, grammatical structures, situational encounters, expressive and receptive language skills.

I will provide curriculum and, as needed, written information and videos used.

I have known Allison for many years. In all that time, she has always advocated for the needs of the individual. This is one of her qualities that makes her a great teacher. She has a lot of experience in the Deaf community through interactions, experience and education. She is helpful, knowledgeable, thorough, and willing to make the extra effort to get a job done well. She is also very enjoyable, funny, and easy to get along with. She has been the “go to” person in the Deaf community for as long as I have known her.

We had our first lesson with Melissa and it was a fantastic experience! Melissa was kind and patient with us (we're beginners) and did a great job communicating without having much shared language. It was great to practice our skills and we're excited to keep learning :)

Many students find learning a language hard or boring. Sign language is a very expressive and beautiful language. Some teachers are boring but I get creative and make learning fun for people that want to lean ASL

To my future students welcome!! I can't wait to get to know you! My name is Nicole, ASL is my favorite language because it's very expressive. I am hard of hearing and have a speech impediment which makes sign language easier for me to use. Fun fact #1 I was inspired to learn ASL from my deaf cous

Just did the free intro class with you and really enjoyed it! You were patient and repeated things slowly when we needed it. My son's review: "I loved it and I learned a lot!"
My almost 10yr old son took it with me as he's been wanting to learn sign language to help him communicate. He's ADHD and gets frustrated super fast and likes to communicate non verbally when he's mad so we've been looking to learning "officially". We learned today the colors of the rainbow along with his favorite color gold, numbers and letters. We hope to take a paid class soon when we have discretionary funds :)

Well done, Nicole. You truly care about us students.

Private American Sign Language Teacher

Experienced teacher with 9 years of practice in the language and over 5 years of teaching. 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 experience tutoring 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 not only get a once a week session, but 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. I not only have expertise in the language, but also linguistics, discourse analysis, Deaf studies, and beginner interpreting skills.
