Graduated from Gallaudet College (University) in Washington, D.C. with a B.S. in Business Administration.

Wow, can’t say enough good things about Bill! My boyfriend and I decided recently that ASL was something we would really like to pursue learning together, so I signed us both up for lessons with Bill and we are so grateful for all of his patience, guidance, careful explanation, and enthusiasm. Learning so far has been a breeze and so much fun! We really look forward to our lessons, and they seem to fly by each time. We would highly recommend Bill to anyone eager to learn and understand more about sign language. What an incredible experience!

I am proud to say that I grew up in the Deaf community and worked as an interpreter for many years; I now just focus on teaching ASL. In my classes, you can expect to be engaged with one another and encouraged. You’re learning a new language that belongs to an incredible community! That is something to be incredibly proud of! Plus, I’ve heard sign language comes in pretty “handy”.

What's the Difference Between ASL & BSL?

Have you been wondering, "What's the difference between ASL and BSL?" This is a great question, and deserves a little more background. First of all, did you know that sign language is not universal? Just like there are numerous spoken languages (around 6,500) used across the globe, there are also many sign languages (somewhere between 138-300) used by various Deaf communities. Though it’s a common belief, sign languages do not stem from a country’s spoken language. The natural develo …
