About Ali


Bio

Hi there! My name is Ali and I’m a language tutor! I specialize in American Sign Language, Spanish, English as a new language, spelling, grammar, and reading of any age/level, as well as linguistics (college-level). I’ve been a substitute teacher and tutor for over five years now, and love being able to work with people of all ages and levels. I’ve worked with special needs students, college students, adults, native Spanish speakers, and students k-12. My education training was for secondary...

Hi there! My name is Ali and I’m a language tutor! I specialize in American Sign Language, Spanish, English as a new language, spelling, grammar, and reading of any age/level, as well as linguistics (college-level). I’ve been a substitute teacher and tutor for over five years now, and love being able to work with people of all ages and levels. I’ve worked with special needs students, college students, adults, native Spanish speakers, and students k-12. My education training was for secondary students (7-12) however since then, I’ve worked with all ages.

I am comfortable with online tutoring, and can travel nearby to libraries, coffee shops, or the student’s home depending on location. I have my own materials, however for students, I prefer working with the materials provided by their classroom teachers and then providing supplemental support where needed. I am very flexible when it comes to timing and lessons, so we can work together to figure out what is best :) I’m excited to work with you!

I majored in linguistics in undergrad and am pursuing a masters in linguistics now at NYU. I also majored in educational and humanistic studies and Spanish (as a fluent speaker) so I have a firm grasp on teaching both Spanish and English as a new language.

I grew up speaking Spanish in my home and I have a degree in Spanish and education. I minored in Deaf Studies in undergrad and have been tutoring and teaching ASL for four years now.

Please don’t hesitate to reach out if you think I’d be a good fit in helping you get to where you want to be in these subjects :) I’m happy to help and I look forward to hearing from you!

Excellent tutor

Ali has been tutoring my daughter in ASL for several weeks. She is professional and knowledgeable in her area of teaching. I would recommend Ali to anyone who wants to learn ASL.

Knowledgeable and patient!

I’ve unsuccessfully tried to learn sign language before. I’m generally good with languages, but sign language has been challenging. Ali broke things down for me and explained the culture and reason behind what I should do. After the first lesson I could already tell this was going to work! FYI, I’m planning on taking more lessons with Ali and highly recommend her.
