Zayne Thomson

  • Sign language teacher

I am a fully qualified teacher, specialising in teaching British Sign Language. I'm currently training to become an BSL/English translator. I’ve been teaching BSL for 10 years now and will be teaching for many years to come. Teaching BSL is my passion.

I have experiences in teaching Key Stage 3 History and KS4 Religious Education in Secondary School for the Deaf. Happily will work with Deaf children who need extra assistance with school subjects, especially in History and RE, but happy to support in other subjects as well.

After experiencing so many boring lessons growing up, I vowed myself to never allow my learners to go through that same experience, this is one of the reason why I became a teacher.

I'm fun, creative, engaging and have a zany personality, loves games and always strive to make you fall in love with learning again!
