- Levels Taught:
- Beginner, Intermediate
As a deaf person in a full hearing family and world, I grew up bilingually which means I was taught to speak and sign.
I have the patience - it's TOTALLY ok to not know sign language and you don't have to feel guilty about that. That is what I am here for - I will help you.
Take a deep breath, join me on a 1:1, and you will pick up signs without realizing - and then you end up being able to communicate with many more people!
- Teaches students:
- Ages 2 to 70 and special needs
- Teaching since:
I took an extremely scary fall off a mountain in Alaska on a backpacking trip; however, despite the pains and extreme weather, I kept hiking and found the trail again.
That's who I am. I keep my words no matter how difficult it may be - a promise is a promise. I am an adventurously visual and creative individual who thinks big and aspires to collaborate both hearing and the deaf worlds by finding common grounds.
As a profoundly-Deaf raised person in a hearing-dominant world, I grew accustomed switching back and forth in both signed and spoken languages. I tend to get along with non-signers pretty well because there are ALWAYS ways to communicate as long efforts are given.
In addition, I have been a peer English tutor for the past few years at my college so I do have abundant experience of working with people 1:1 to comprehend a difficult topic.
