Qualified sign language interpreter and tutor (30 years plus of professional working experiences and a deaf family) teaches sign language for beginners to advanced, via zoom and face to face classes.

Methodology

Tutor is an experienced and fully qualified British Sign Language Interpreter (30 years' experience), Teacher (mainstream, deaf and special needs), Makaton Regional Tutor, Trainer and Communication Consultant (deaf, deafblind, autism, and dementia) for Education, Business and Social Care sectors.

Tutor teaches sign language predominantly in English word order (with speech/lip patterns)
1) to aid the understanding and speed of using sign language (based on feedback from many hearing students) and
2) to reflect the increasingly influence and use of English language due to social media and the advances in medical technology.

All signs taught are from British Sign Language and dialects of BSL from around the UK.

The comprehensive syllabus covers all the common topics for learning a second language, as well as regular updates related to current affairs e.g Signs and phrases related to Covid.

I believe we learn best when we have fun, find the content meaningful, are able to put what we have learned into practice immediately and feel successful as a result.

Experience

I have been involved in teaching and improving access to full communication all my life. I was one of the first pioneering teachers of the deaf who introduced sign language into the classroom (total communication approach).
My passion is to help everyone 'have a voice' and 'communicate' with each other to the best of their ability.

I came across Mandy when she offered online sign language tutoring over zoom a year or so ago. I didn't really know what to expect as I'd never done it before but Ive always been intrigued by signing as I come across deaf people at work sometimes and really wanted to be able to connect with them on their terms. I found the course she offered at beginner level really helpful and a lot of fun. It was interactive so we could ask for content that was relevant to our needs as well as just receive what was planned for the session. I found myself picking up/memorising quite a lot of words and phrases that were really practical and useful. But more importantly it gave me confidence to try things out and not to be afraid if I got it wrong. Mandy is a lovely person with warmth and humour. She is very encouraging and I dont hesitate to recommend her tutoring.

I had been looking for someone to teach me sign language for many years and when I found Mandy I was thrilled. Not only did she make it easy to learn she also brought her humour to make it fun and enjoyable. Mandy was also able to tailor our lessons to my specific needs which was super useful. I have learnt so much and look forward to continuing my learning journey with Mandy. I can not recommend Mandy highly enough as a sign language teacher.
