Director / NZSL Tutor
Hi! I’m Amber Shaw. I grew up in Hokianga, Far North. Previously I lived in Auckland and have been in Wellington for 3 years. I have two beautiful Deaf Boys and became a qualified NZSL tutor through Victoria University.
I have been teaching NZSL was the last 6 years. I currently work with Wellington High School Adult Community Education and Capital Training in Wellington Region delivering night classes at different levels. During the day I work closely with Coffee Educators, delivering training to different areas in hospitality, making NZSL accessible and focusing on training suited to each groups needs. I have also provided specific NZSL training to Government Departments and Educational facilities as well as private tuition.
I set up NZSL4U last year and so far, it has been an amazing journey. My goal one day is for everyone to be able to communicate using NZSL, for my boys to grow up in a world where NZSL is used by everybody.
When I am not teaching you will find me drinking coffee around Wellington, - it definitely has the best coffee shops!
