About Becky

I have always desired to help others and foster a love of learning in the people that I meet! Throughout my life I have studied several languages and when I finally started with American Sign Language I found my true passion. I have studied Sign for about 5 years; learning on my own and taking formal classes in New Jersey as well as New York City. My ultimate goal in life is to be fluent in ASL and become a Teacher or Interpreter of the language.

My love of learning has also blossomed into a love of teaching. I have worked in summer camps and day cares as well as being a nanny and one on one tutor to young children. I also have had internships with a Guidance Counselor in an Elementary School and with The Walt Disney Company in Disney World in Orlando, Florida. Working with children has always been something I saw myself doing in life, however, with my dedication and knowledge of the language I enjoy teaching ASL to people of all ages.

I am a very outgoing and laid back person and am willing to make a tutoring schedule that is flexible for each individual student. I enjoy challenging others to step outside their comfort zone when it comes to learning and to try multiple means for studying/practicing. Ensuring that whatever method of learning is used makes the student feel comfortable and like they are really grasping the language is the most important aspect to me.

I have a strong passion for the language and am continuing my education of language myself. I have taken levels 101 and 102 at my University prior to graduating and studied levels 5 and Conversational as well. At the moment I am working on continuing my knowledge of ASL through practice and workshops whenever possible.

Please contact me if you have an interest in learning the language, need help with practicing expressions, finger spelling, and more! I am always excited to talk about ASL and am willing to help in any way I can!

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Sign Language

I studied ASL 101 and 102 at Montclair State University in 2013-2014. After graduating from the university I continued my studies at The Sign Language Center in Manhattan and was placed in Level 5. My proficiency in the language allowed me to skip level 6 and take the Conversational Course. I also took a workshop on Handshapes there. I believe in individualized education plans for each student I tutor and using methods that work best for them whether it be attending Deaf Events, video calling to practice, or needing to be assigned homework as practice. My passion for the language above all is what fuels my desire to teach others this important language!
