My son is a BEGINNER beginner. Rodrigo is a very nice guy and seems to know his stuff very well. I would give him 5 stars but I don't think he realized that my son needed the basic, basic 1st lesson (i.e. how to hold the instrument). We've only attended one session so this is fully based on that one lesson. I'm sure he'll adjust his teaching from here on out.

Mariana was a great tutor. I am an adult with little experience speaking French. I enjoyed our conversations and she made learning the language very enjoyable. I hope to continue.

Mariana has been an incredible instructor. I came to her as an adult with no previous understanding of French. Her passion for teaching and knowledge of not only the language, but the culture as well, are unparalleled. She immediately made me feel confident by including conversation in our first lesson. I could not have asked for a better introduction to French. I highly recommend Mariana as your first choice for French!

We absolutely love Candida. She seems to be able to connect to my 8 years old which I constantly have to push to practice, so and I cannot ask for more honestly. I'm just happy he's so excited to go to the class. Worth every $ and trust me I just moved in NYC and the lessons are double the price than in NJ.

I keep my lessons super fun and low pressure.

My love of teaching comes from my day job at a local elementary school and volunteer work in the NE Indiana deaf community.

With so many friends and students who are deaf and hard-of-hearing, I'm always on the bleeding edge of what signs the deaf are using.

I'm here for you when you have questions. Having the personal experience of learning American Sign Language, I understand the challenges and will help you overcome them.

No worries if you don't know what you want to study. The course can be personalized to match your strengths and weaknesses.

About Luke

Hi, my name is Luke. 👋🏻 I started learning American Sign Language as a teenager and have loved it every day since. Learning is essential, so I'm always trying something new. That can mean dabbling in another language, traveling with friends, or producing short films with my drone. I want to make
