Hello There!

I am a Deaf ASL instructor, and I've been teaching since 2015. I've enjoying to see my students develop a sense of ASL, which is a beautiful and visual language to learn.

Once you take a few ASL classes, you will build your signs skills to able to converse with Deaf people and learn about Deaf Culture.

Purnima is an excellent teacher! I have been taking her beginner lessons for a couple of months now and her patience and enthusiasm are incredible. She is very interactive with all of the students and will help you gain confidence as you learn new signs. I hope that everyone has a chance to experience Purnima's teaching!

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! See you in class!
