Bio

Hello everyone, I'm Coach Holly.

I have been studying American Sign Language since 2013 and am actively pursing a degree in Deaf Studies and Interpreting. I have had the opportunity to work exclusively under Deaf college professors during my ASL education, as well as alongside them as a Teacher's Assistant at both the High School and College levels. I love working with those who are new to ASL as I hope to imbue my passion for the language and culture to those just starting out. We can work...

Hello everyone, I'm Coach Holly.

I have been studying American Sign Language since 2013 and am actively pursing a degree in Deaf Studies and Interpreting. I have had the opportunity to work exclusively under Deaf college professors during my ASL education, as well as alongside them as a Teacher's Assistant at both the High School and College levels. I love working with those who are new to ASL as I hope to imbue my passion for the language and culture to those just starting out. We can work together to make sure you understand the importance of the Deaf community, increase levels of comprehension and sign replication, and understand the unique linguistic markers of the language. I look forward to helping increase your confidence with ASL!

-----

As a Speech & Debate tutor from Orange County, California and a certified OCDL judge, I have had the opportunity to see, debate against, and coach competitors from all levels, starting as young as 3rd grade.
I am now based out of Utah County and am eager to help young students find their voice and gain confidence as they learn the art of speech and debate.

-----

I coach with all ages, but work best with 8 to 18 year old students.
Adults are always welcome as Public Speaking is still a major fear among most of us!

wonderful teacher!!

Holly led a fun and engaging session with my daughter who wanted to learn how to sign a poem for her class. Holly explained the differences between ASL and regular grammar and was very encouraging as she went over signing each line, which made my daughter feel really confident. Amazing teacher - would highly recommend!!
