About Nicole
I fell in love with ASL at a young age and wanted to become an interpreter. I went to school to study and improve my ASL skills and decided to be an ASL teacher or tutor to help people that want to learn or help people improve their sign language skills.

Work Experience
Takelessons.com, ASL Teacher
2021 - Present
I have been teaching ASL one on one helping the student re learn ASL. We go over basic vocabulary and I have the student write down the words that I teach so the student can review it for out next lesson. I help the student with signs that she needs more help on and try to make learning fun for her
Pace Benicia, ASL Teacher
2018 - 2018
I taught an ASL class once a week, an hour a day to adults with special needs which was really fun. I would teach them basic ASL sign vocabulary and taught them counting, I also gave assignments to clients to practice the signs and we would review it several times to help the clients remember the signs and movement of the signs. When I world come back to teach we would review the signs and I world try to make it fun and interesting for the clients. We would practice signing colors and basic conversation skills for everyday use
Berkeley City College, ASL Tutor
2017 - 2018
I did a one-on-one tutoring session with a young lady that had down syndrome which was fun but challenging at times. We worked in the alphabet, counting in ASL, ASL vocabulary and basic sign language skills. I would also help her with any homework she didn't understand in ASL such as understanding how to sign a sentence in ASL rather than Signing Exact English (S.E.E.) we also worked on story telling and interpreting skills.
Berkeley City College, American Sign Language Assistant
2017 - 2017
American sign Language assistant I volunteered to help out with the ASL 1 class for summer school. The experience I had was a lot of fun especially being able to help out the students to the best of my ability. I would help the teacher by interpreting for the teacher when needed, helped out the students with learning ASL, assisting the teacher with grading tests and helping students with classwork and making sure the students were using ASL and not using voice.
