About Laura

I am fluent in American Sign Language and love to teach others this incredible language. For four years, I worked at a school for the deaf as a counselor. At this school, I was immersed in sign language while working with deaf students and co-workers. In addition, I have studied sign language at Gallaudet University which is a deaf university in Washington D.C. Due to these experiences, I am very knowledgeable about Deaf Culture and American Sign Language.

I am very enthusiastic about teaching sign language to others and I am comfortable teaching at any level. If you are a beginner wanting to learn the basics or have taken classes and would like feedback on how to improve your skills, I can provide helpful strategies in how to improve your ASL. I can assist with receptive or expressive skills in sign language. In addition, I can help if you would like to focus on any specific area such as fingerspelling. Please let me know if you have any questions.
I look forward to meeting you!
