« Perfect! You pretaught me a lot of vocabulary for the Signature Level 3 video in the first lesson, but I didn't realise you were doing that, so I thought it strange you were teaching me / checking those words, but of course that was useful. I have done that video before with a previous teacher, but some time ago. He did a LOT of Signature Level 3 videos with me. I think he didn't do the 2 most recent videos with me. I'd like to have another lesson as soon as possible because I'm unemployed and it would be fantastic to pass the Level 3 receptive. Before the summer break seems unlikely, but just in case... I realise that if I've seen a video before that has been fully explained to me, it will be much easier. You can see I really have a problem with finger spelling receptive skills. When are you free to teach me again ? »

I'm highly experienced British Sign Language Level 1,2,3,4,6 NVQ teacher (11 years' experience)

Methodology

I teach BSL at all levels from Level 1 to Level 6 NVQ, and also have experience teaching below Level 1, working with preschool children to develop their every day signing skills and doing BSL activities with them. I know the Signature curricula for Levels 1, 2, 3 and NVQ 6 very well, and I know how to teach ensuring that the assessment criteria are covered for all units. For Levels 3 and 6, I am experienced in teaching students how to do their clips, profile, etc for their portfolio. I also provide tips and guidance to students on getting involved in the Deaf community, as well as teaching vocabulary, grammar and BSL linguistics. I love BSL linguistics and continue my learning about linguistics every day.

Experience

I am a BSL teacher with many years' teaching experience, and I am a Deaf BSL user. I have taught students of all ages, from babies up to adults, including working professionals and adults with learning difficulties. I'm a qualified teacher and I ensure I update my training every year. I live in London and have a strong knowledge of regional signs.



I am available to do one to one tutorials with students as needed, to develop students' confidence and to help students practise before their exams, and I am experienced in providing such tutorials. I have lots of resources and handouts that I've developed in relation to the curricula.

Perfect! You pretaught me a lot of vocabulary for the Signature Level 3 video in the first lesson, but I didn't realise you were doing that, so I thought it strange you were teaching me / checking those words, but of course that was useful.
I have done that video before with a previous teacher, but some time ago. He did a LOT of Signature Level 3 videos with me. I think he didn't do the 2 most recent videos with me.
I'd like to have another lesson as soon as possible because I'm unemployed and it would be fantastic to pass the Level 3 receptive. Before the summer break seems unlikely, but just in case... I realise that if I've seen a video before that has been fully explained to me, it will be much easier. You can see I really have a problem with finger spelling receptive skills.
When are you free to teach me again ?

Perfect! Alice is amazing!

I'm so glad I found Alice as a tutor.
I'm new to signing and wanted to learn because I'm a teacher and would like to communicate with any student or parent who communicates through signing.

Alice is patient, kind, organised and a pleasure to speak to.

Thank you for everything you've done to help me so far.
