Private American Sign Language Teacher

I was interested in learning to sign from the time I was a little girl. American Sign Language and the Deaf culture have always been fascinating to me. When it was time to choose a college and career, I sought a way to use ASL in my daily life. I became a Teacher for the Deaf, and I continue to have a passion for both the language and the culture. I want to share that passion with you!

I have been a Teacher for the Deaf for 5 years. I work daily with students who use ASL as their main form of communication. In addition to meeting their individual needs, I create goals and implement direct lessons to help them learn and improve ASL.

I learned American Sign Language in a formal college setting. I learned ASL from both Deaf and hearing instructors. I met several times weekly with my professors in the classroom setting and participated in "immersion" hours throughout my college career. Now, I use it daily to communicate with my students and other professionals.

About Robyn

"Turtle." It was the first sign I learned as a kid, and it stuck with me. From that time forward, I wanted to learn American Sign Language. I didn't have the opportunity until I reached college, where I dove head first into the world of ASL and the Deaf community. I earned a Bachelor's Degree in

I am a Deaf fluent communicator, instructor, and performer in ASL. I founded Loud n Clear Musik to teach music and sign language to both the hearing and the Deaf world. ASL lessons can also be taken for art, music, and ministry purposes. My lessons are for students of all kinds to help them better communicate, understand, and connect with the Deaf friends, families, community, customers & clients, and peers. I communicate in ASL non-stop with all Deaf, Hard of Hearing, and Deaf-Blind. I can teach you ASL effectively, fitting your level with ease, and with lots of fun!! I also communicate (and speak) very well in two other languages: English and Spanish. I can teach individually or teach a class.

The lessons can be Intro/Basic, Intermediate, or Advanced. Your lessons will be planned according to your needs. For example, Basic Lessons will consist of learning the fingers and coordination exercises, alphabets, numbers, basic signs and communication for friends, family & relatives, ...

About Eduardo

(Hi! Check out the new videos I posted below!! Looking forward to become your new teacher!!) Since my birth, my life was influenced by music and my father's passion to sing. My sense of music started not with understanding of lyrics, but of melodies and rhythms. As matter of fact, the first lang

Eddie is a brilliant intuitive instructor who adapts his lesson to his students needs. He is relentlessly understanding and compassionate. He is hilariously funny yet serious about careful ASL study. I'm honored to learn from him.

Online American Sign Language Teacher

I am very organized, detail oriented and I personalize my teaching approach with each student depending on their goals and different angles of interest in utilizing the language. I enjoy finding creative ways to engage further understanding and fluency including interpretation of music, using games, such as Guess Who, Charades, and trivial pursuit-beneficial and enjoyed by all ages and levels. Additionally, there are many other lesson plans I have created myself or use of textbooks and workbooks along with unique assignments that I constantly use outside of and in addition to the traditional vocabulary lessons, sentence structure/grammar and syntax lessons and deaf culture education.

I am looking forward to receiving any questions concerning myself, my experience, learning about your needs for a tutor and scheduling. Please feel free to reach out to me at anytime.

"I had been wanting to learn sign language and more about the deaf community since seeing an ASL translator at my college in California. Now at a point where I am finishing up my college career, I decided to invest in classes (because why not try something new and interesting!). Online proved the best option and Eduardo was the #1 rated ASL teacher on TakeLessons.
I had a few questions and Eduardo immediately reached out to me. He was (and is) both friendly and informative in his communication. His teaching style is more conversational and personalized to the level and learning style of the student. He is patient yet pushes me forward in my learning by integrating sign language into daily parts of my life. For example, I am currently learning how to sign some of my favorite songs! Additionally, Eduardo presents a new challenge regularly for my personal growth in the language. I have been taking weekly lessons for 3 months and am now at the point where he says I can no longer use my voice along with my signs. The process of speaking interferes with the fluidity of signing...I'm really excited to see how my signing improves!
If you have the opportunity to invest in learning this beautiful language, I really encourage you to #1) try it and #2) take it with Eduardo. He will teach you so much and make it incredibly fun in the process. I feel like I've learned enough to fill a dictionary after each lesson! Eduardo genuinely cares and is excited to share this piece of his world with you...I couldn't be more thankful and plan to continue lessons with him indefinitely."

Sign Language for Beginners: 10 Basic ASL Phrases & Words

To effectively communicate with sign language, you need to know basic sign language words and phrases. Just like spoken languages, there are a variety of sign languages used around the world. American Sign Language (ASL) is used throughout North America, including the U.S. and English-speaking Canada. ASL is a complete language, which means that you can communicate just about anything through signing. Those who are deaf and hard of hearing, as well as people with functional hearing, use ASL …
