About Francesca

Hello! My name is Francesca and I am extremely passionate about the subject in which I teach and tutor, which is American Sign Language. My goal is to continue to spread awareness of the Deaf community as well being a part of more hearing people developing sign language skills and building upon the foundation of enhanced interest in ASL!

I am a college graduate of an interpreter training program located in New Jersey, I have interpreted for the deaf community in professional settings as well as volunteer occasions such as the New Jersey Special Olympics. I have used my knowledge and expertise in sign language through the avenue of tutoring since the beginning of my education. I will explain further my experience with teaching and tutoring .

In the past, I was the main tutor at Brookdale Community College located in Monmouth County. I have taught and organized classes at Ocean Day School located in Lakewood, New Jersey. Presently, I have been teaching at The Language School which is a facility also located in Monmouth County for over two years. I welcome a range of students including any age and any level of experience with sign language.

I am very organized, detail oriented and I personalize my teaching approach with each student depending on their goals and different angles of interest in utilizing the language. I enjoy finding creative ways to engage further understanding and fluency including interpretation of music, using games, such as Guess Who, Charades, and trivial pursuit-beneficial and enjoyed by all ages and levels. Additionally, there are many other lesson plans I have created myself or use of textbooks and workbooks along with unique assignments that I constantly use outside of and in addition to the traditional vocabulary lessons, sentence structure/grammar and syntax lessons and deaf culture education.

I am looking forward to receiving any questions concerning myself, my experience, learning about your needs for a tutor and scheduling. Please feel free to reach out to me at anytime.

My qualifications include my degree: A.A.S. In American Sign Language to English interpretation, EIPA ( educational interpreter performance assessment ) passed, NIC ( National interpreter certification ) written test passed,
and the SLCE ( State language competency assessment ) passed.

I have been tutoring for 7 years and working in the field.

If you are interested in learning sign language please contact me. I am very open and flexible. Feel free to reach out with any questions regarding sign language, myself, and of course scheduling a lesson.
