Hello everybody! American Sign Language is my first language and I am deaf person. I am so thrilling to teach you to learn sign language. It benefit for everybody such as common in daily life, jobs, school requirement. American Sign Language is amazing way to communicate with deaf and hard of hearing people, especially people who does not know how to express themselves or struggle with speaking English. I will be teaching basic sign language, starting with ABCs, numbers, word by words, and many more. Do you want to learn from me? Then go for it!
During our first lesson, we'll briefly talk about how YOU want to learn ASL. Do you want to learn it in depth, the way I teach it to my college students? Would you rather focus (either solely, or in the beginning) on specific signs you can use to communicate with a specific "audience" in a specific setting? Or do you want to combine the two, and/or throw in some live practice with my culturally Deaf son? Since YOU are paying for the lesson(s), I want to give you what you want to the greatest extent possible, although I will gladly make suggestions if you're open to them. I have been signing since 1976 and have taught ASL for over 20 years. Yes, I'm an Old Dog, but believe me, I have more energy than most 20-year-olds!
Do you want to learn how to communicate with the Deaf? Are you intrigued by the use of sign language? Come learn with me. I am Deaf and I use American Sign Language. My brother is also Deaf, so we grew up using ASL together and at school. I have been teaching online for the past 5 years, and I love teaching others how to improve their communication skills in ASL. Sign language is one of the most expressive languages, have you seen an interpreter recently on the new? Have you noticed how fast they move their fingers, and make a variety of facial expressions. I can help you, no matter what level of ASL you know, I want to help you make progress and become fluent. I have a toddler and he is learning ASL, if he can, you can! See you in the classroom!

I love sign language! It is not only something I use as a Sign Language Interpreter but as an everyday language amongst friends. What experience do I have?? I have had a lot of experience teaching sign language both for work and pleasure. I have had experience working with many age groups teaching Sign Language. Some Elementary School-High School Level, Businesses and Employees seeking to learn ASL to enhance customer service opportunities, and even young children with multiple disabilities. I cater to many different needs as well! I have taught many children and young adults learning just for fun! Others are more advanced and wish to pursue careers in Deaf Ed and Interpreting. Another one of my highly effective areas is helping those in the medical field learn to better assist their patients belonging to the deaf community.

I go at your own pace is key and I would love to work with anyone of any level. I also have extensive training with the Interpreters Training Program for Sign Language Interpreters. What use is that you may ask! I have knowledge in Sign Language in areas of Medical, Law and Education! I also have training in Sign to Voice! What does that mean for you? That means you can become proficient in ASL in ANY area you desire! Sign Language is beautiful and I would love to help anyone interested learn my favorite language as well! Come and join my class and I am sure you will not be disappointed.
Hello, my name is Ariel and I am excited to be ASL teacher. I am immersed in the ASL language everyday as an Interpreter which has allowed me to become fluent. With experience in medical, educational, and teaching settings, I have learned the best and most effective ways to learn this language. Why should you take lessons with me? First, I work at the pace of the student, consider your goals, and your strengths/ limitations. Every lesson will be custom-made for you only. Second, I have received training and teachings from professors and interpreters from College and Universities. So, I am trained to be familiarized with different settings and subjects, such as medical, educational, astronomy, computer/technology, and law. I am dedicated to teach ASL to every student ready to learn. I am very eager to teach you this extremely unique and amazing language. I am also excited to meet you and begin our learning adventure!
