Commonly Asked Questions for Hope, Lead Instructor


What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

  • First I start off with a free introduction session, usually 10 minutes online. We will discuss what your, your child or your group's goals are for sign language proficiency then I draft up a lesson plan depending on how often the lessons will take place.
  • For group lessons depending on the size of the audience I can utilize audio visual resources such as movies and interactive activities.
  • I also offer "Sign Language" birthday parties. Includes games, arts and crafts and prizes for the party participants.


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

  • As a former licensed high school science teacher at the NC School for the Deaf I have experience teaching Deaf students. Now my experience has broadened to include hearing individuals including families, new mothers, non profit groups and businesses as well as late-Deafened adults looking for a new way of communicating.


How did you get started doing this type of work?

  • It started very gradually. Parents would ask me to teach their babies or toddlers Baby Signs. Then word spread around and then the ages over time got older. Now I'm proud to state that I work with ALL ages now.
