Lesson Details

American Sign Language

Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced
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.

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!
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 super! She works well with our special needs daughter. She is very knowledgeable, and able to show us the ASL signs our daughter needs.

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!
