Meet our tutor – Hanna Deal

Kia Ora 

 My name is Hanna and I am fully Deaf tutor who uses NZSL fluent. 

I have been involved in the Deaf Community for so many years and I have a passion to work within the education sector. I love to see people who are willing or not afraid to give it a go to learn one of our official languages in New Zealand. I have worked with a variety of ages for teaching NZSL from infant to our older generation. Just remember New Zealand sign language is for everyone and this will make a huge difference in a Deaf persons life by communicating in their language. Come and give a go to learn a new language. This may be out your comfort zone but I’m sure you will love it so much. I have a lot of positive feedback about my classes.
