Alesia Parshutsina

I teach BSL at all levels from Level 1 to Level 6, following Signature curriculum. I have extensive experience of teaching a wide range of people, including children, university students and adults. I am very familiar with all the units for the Signature qualifications, and teach all the skill areas including presentation, conversation, receptive skills, linguistics and how to develop a portfolio. I am also happy to teach students who are hoping to join an interpreting diploma course, helping them develop their skills and build up their confidence before they start the course. As part of my lessons, I also include teaching on deaf awareness, how to get involved in the deaf community and how workplaces can ensure they are deaf-friendly. My teaching is comprehensive and I cover vocabulary, jargon, grammar, structure and linguistics.

I have 16 years' experience of teaching BSL, and BSL linguistics is my passion.
