Through my journey in life I have discovered three passions: first was my love for teaching, then my love for ASL, and lastly my aspirations to be self employed. I combine these three passions to provide not only an expert and insightful tutoring experience, but more importantly an impactful and heartfelt one.

Find someone who can match your learning style and avoid those with a rigid approach! I am naturally more laid back with a focus on conversational acquisition than rote learning and memorization.

What do I already know? Why do I want to learn? How do I learn best? What is your teaching approach? What will each lesson look like? How far can you take me?
