This class can be done various ways.
1) I can tutor you for a ASL class you are currently taking.
2) I can help you keep fresh on ASL you already know (we can spend class practicing communication skills.
3) We can learn the basics (ABCs, Counting, Colors, and so on) Basically start from the beginning as an ASL 1 class and we can work our way toward understanding and communicating.

I have students who are doing this for their career in order to communicate to deaf people they come to contact with in their professional life. For those students I base our classes around signs they would use in there place of work. Some occupations of my current students include: Nurse, Social Worker, Santa, US Military, Flight Attendant, and more.
I also teach students who have zero ASL background and we start with the very basic signs and work our way to forming sentences and battling the ASL grammar.
No matter where you are in your journey of sign language, this class will be perfect for you.

Just did the free intro class with you and really enjoyed it! You were patient and repeated things slowly when we needed it. My son's review: "I loved it and I learned a lot!"
My almost 10yr old son took it with me as he's been wanting to learn sign language to help him communicate. He's ADHD and gets frustrated super fast and likes to communicate non verbally when he's mad so we've been looking to learning "officially". We learned today the colors of the rainbow along with his favorite color gold, numbers and letters. We hope to take a paid class soon when we have discretionary funds :)
adrienne Joan Burton
Well done, Nicole. You truly care about us students.
Question: I was unable to question or comment while you were teaching. Please say how! /thanks

However, when you think about how many spoken languages there are across the globe, it makes sense that sign language would be the same. After all, American Sign language is its own language with its own grammar, idioms, and everything else needed to be a language completely separate from English. Different types of sign language are developed in different regions around the globe, just like spok …
