American Sign Language is the fourth-most used language in the United States. Knowing ASL is imperative because you might encounter a Deaf individual anywhere.
Learning ASL is a joy that I took on over 15 years ago. As a student once myself, I can relate to my clients — tailoring private lessons to their needs and unique learning styles.
If you are currently a student of ASL, a beginner, have conversational skills, are an interpreting student, or anywhere in between, I can help you learn the language and excel at signing. My students come from diverse backgrounds, some with Deaf family and friends, some with hopes to use it professionally, and others with the mere desire to learn something new and valuable. Many of my students are visual learners and find that ASL, compared to spoken languages, comes more naturally to them.
Whatever your skill level, age, background, or goals, I can help you achieve them as your Lingua Guru. I have extensive training in Formal ASL working as a Professor of ASL in NYC and will teach you the variations and regional distinctions that will help you communicate with Deaf and hard-of-hearing individuals in your area.
I support my students by informing them of Deaf Events in their town, such that they could interact with their local Deaf Community embracing Deaf Culture, as well as with the rich history and beautiful community that learning ASL can provide.
I offer private ASL lessons in New York and over video conferencing platforms such as Skype. Several of my students find that Skype lessons cater to their needs and can be done in the comfort and convenience of their own homes and schedules. This way, I can teach you ASL wherever you are located in the country. Skype affords me the opportunity to work with individuals all over the world.
As your Lingua Guru, and your biggest fan, I will facilitate your use of ASL through fun, unique, and visual pedagogical modalities that will generate an enthusiasm for learning.
I look forward to taking this journey together.
Throughout the years I have learned that we can avoid a good deal of suffering by surrendering to the ebbs and flows of life without resistance. I have come to understand that being our own best friend is the catalyst to a life of happiness, peace, harmony, and health.
Through my experiences, I have dabbled in trainings and practices which led me to become a certified life coach. Coaching, unlike therapy, is future-oriented, which means that we focus on what you want to create in your life, we discuss the conscious and unconscious blockages, and we inspire action.
Sometimes we need a bit of support, which is how I may be of service to you. Through my Life Coach and Mindfulness Leadership Certification, I have supported hundreds of individuals to access their highest selves, and become their best selves. Once we operate from this space, we can grow a business, attract a partner, achieve peace and harmony, find the courage to change careers or initiate self-confidence, assertiveness, and self-worth.
Through my coaching program, we will target specific areas of growth you desire. We will explicitly tackle them with a myriad of techniques that I use with my clients — tailoring my services to your needs.
Expression begins with language. Once we master our self-expression, anything is possible. Our fears are merely false thoughts with an enticing viewpoint, but we learn to override them operating from a place that attracts abundance.
I work with individuals, couples, and businesses. I offer my services in English or ASL.
Working as a team, and as your Lingua Guru, I look forward to unveiling your truest self through the magic of language, such that your dreams become reality.
In a professional and personal climate, we are often presented with the task of writing something important. Often times this may be a work grant, proposal, email to our boss, cover letter, or speech. On a personal level, this load may be a blog post, love letter, website content, email to a friend, maid of honor speech, or assignment for school.
Our relationship to the written word dictates if these undertakings will be pleasant or daunting.
This is how my services can be made available to you. Whatever your writing assignment may be, regardless of its length and nature, I am happy to help you craft it. Because I understand the value of time, and how some assignments are more pressing than others, I offer a quick turnaround time to my clients.
So, if you need that cover letter done by the next day, or that speech perfected by the end of the week, I will support you.
The decisive element in my work is that I don’t solely do the writing for you. First, I sit down with you, have a conversation about your vision for the assignment, and ask you for writing samples so I could stay true to your voice. As an educator, I know that doing things for people doesn’t help them. However, showing them facilitates learning.
Fill out a contact form, and indicate the nature of your assignment and its desired due date. Subsequently, I will get back to you.
As your Lingua Guru, I am happy to support your writing needs.
