About Amy

Hello, I hail from Minnesota but have resided just outside of Philadelphia, PA for the past twelve years. I am married and have 4 wonderful children from age 14 to 2. I have been teaching ASL since 2008 and love it! I've taught courses in colleges, various organizations that provide ASL classes and private tutoring as well. I'm a native American Sign Language (ASL) user. I have a passion in teaching, particularly ASL to various ages & people. I have been teaching it since 2008 and love it! I've taught courses in colleges in Philadelphia area, various organizations that provide ASL classes and private tutoring as well.

I am currently working on obtaining my ASL Teaching Association (ASLTA) certification. I have a Bachelor's degree from North Central University in Pastoral Studies. I have taken several graduate courses at McDaniel College majoring in Deaf Education, and hope to return to the graduate coursework soon focusing on ASL studies. There are workshops, websites and social media groups that I am a part of in order to obtain more information on teaching ASL, and deaf culture. I strive to teach authentic ASL instruction. I teach without using my voice and use other mediums in communicating with my students, whether it may be: gesturing, pointing or writing on the board. In the years I have taught, ASL classes taught without voice is effective because ASL is an entirely separate language from English and focusing on one language at a time enables the students to master the language.

My schedule is flexible and I am willing to work with you to find what works for you. I am patient, fun and challenging in a good way! You will walk away learning something new each time you meet with me!
