Being born to deaf parents, my first language is American Sign Language. I am a CODA (child of deaf adult). My primary language is English and an expert ASL signer. By nature, Im apart of the Deaf/HH community and look to grow in advocating. I would like to reach hearing parents with deaf children or even hearing children with deaf parents by helping them advance in using their sign language skills proficiently.
I’m also interested in working with students whom are interested in ASL as a second language or even a hobby. Taking ASL in high school and need tutoring? I can assist in learning the visual and gestural communication of the signing.

About Amber F.

Do you want to expand your signing skills from a CODA (Child Of Deaf Adult) and educator? ASL being my first language and English a second language, I’ve signed to my mother, father, brothers and others in the deaf community by nature. I’m currently learning to sign music in ASL which has been a great experience. As a lifelong learner, I hope to inspire and share this experience with you! I have a background in Reading/ElAR elementary 7years completing in depth reading inventories to promote reading development.

With the obstacles in language communication with people who have special needs, I also offer Family support that is individually personalized, to meet the needs of child or relative. This includes older adults experiencing hearing loss, parents of deaf children, or individuals with special needs that maybe be able to better communicate in ASL vs English. I’m the voice behind the signs.

Amber is wonderful. She is a skilled instructor whose best gift is the way she listens and pays attention to detail. We are only a few lessons in, and I've really enjoyed learning with her because she is so collaborative. She is also very attentive to getting the most out of our time. I'm looking forward to continued learning!

Amber is an enthusiastic and patient teacher. My daughter (9 years) and I are really enjoying our classes.
Amber is great about teaching to our pace and answering our (many) questions. My daughter asked if we can attend every week instead of every-other because she is having so much fun, as am I!

Amber is a great ASL teacher. We had face-to-face practice lessons. She is patient, caring and has a kind and delightful personality. You can sense her passion for teaching. She shared different learning strategies on how I can develop and improve my fingerspelling, receptive and expressive skills. I enjoyed our practice sessions! She is very encouraging and flexible! Great ASL teacher!
