Sign Language is an awesome form of visual communication! I love ASL and the deaf culture. I have years of experience and I'd be delighted to teach you. All ages welcome. Lessons are customized and catered to your needs and goals. Not only will you be signing like a pro in no time, but you will be able to communicate with the deaf and hard of hearing communities. Let's get started!

About Chaneé
Hey There! I'm Chaneé. I am an American Sign Language tutor and professional Actress. Over the years I have taught ASL to many actors for specific roles and just great students who wanted to learn to communicate with the deaf. If you have friends or family that is deaf or dealing with hearing loss learning ASL is a great way to communicate and build stronger relationships. Maybe you want to become an interpreter or just learn a song for a church service or a role in a movie. Many parents use sign language or baby sign to communicate with their children. No matter the reason, I'm here to give you all the ASL you want to learn at your pace.

I studied ASL and Deaf Culture at Philadelphia College and the Philadelphia School of the Deaf while attending the University of the Arts for Theater Arts. On top of my overachieving college studie
s.. I also have many deaf friends. I use ASL in my daily life and I'm always thrilled to share the culture and language with others. I am a very friendly person so expect a good time during your lesson. I can't wait to meet you!

Ms. Chaneé is one of the best instructors I could of found for my child. Not only was she super patient with my daughter but she made it fun for her to learn. She took the time to not only be her teacher but a her friend. I’m definitely recommending Ms. Chaneé to more people I know.

Have you ever wanted to learn American Sign Language, but couldn’t find out where? Here is an opportunity for you to learn at your pace and your convenience. I first began learning Sign Language back in 2nd grade. In high school my school offered both ASL 1 and 2. I then became more interested in the Language and decided to major in Deaf Education. I have been in the Deaf Education field for 6 years now and I enjoy helping my students communicate using ASL. I hope to connect with you soon!

Ava Haynes is a phenomenal force. The Young Beauty Academy had ASL teacher Ava Haynes and the girls were signing in sentences within 1 hour. I never have seen a person so gentle and thorough with children. The children had the best experience because of Ava Haynes expertise. We will definitely have her for the next group of Young Beauties.

About Tanya H.

I have been communicating using American Sign Language for over 15 years. I have a bachelor's degree in American Sign Language interpreting. I have been an interpreter for 11 years and I am nationally certified through the Registry of Interpreters for the Deaf. All ages welcome. Lessons are customized and catered to the needs/goals of each student. Not only will you be signing in no time, but you will be building a strong foundation of grammar, vocabulary, Deaf Culture, and more. Let's get started!

About Tanya
I have been a professional American Sign Language interpreter for over 11 years. I graduated from MacMurray College with a Bachelors of ASL Interpreting and from Walden University with both a Master's degree in both Business Administration and Education.

I have also been playing the flute for over 22 years.

American Sign Language students can expect to gain the foundational skills for conversation. Students will also learn the history and culture surrounding the Deaf Community.

Flute students can expect to improve week to week in their technique. I can help any student to sing with freedom, confidence, and expression.

I teach students of all different ages and experience levels. I can teach American Sign Language students the grammar and vocabulary necessary for communicating in American Sign Language. I can teach flute studen
ts to read music and pursue classical excellence, to learn how to play contemporary music, or both depending on the goals and preference of the student.

As a nationally certified ASL interpreter, I am on the state registry of supreme court interpreters and have worked as the Director of a Community Center for the Deaf and Hard-of-Hearing. I have taught ASL privately for 20 years and professionally for 5 years.

I look forward to meeting you and helping you to reach your goals.

To give you an idea of my strong involvement in the deaf world, I am a graduate student of MA in ASL Teaching from Gallaudet University, the only university for the deaf in the world. I grew up at a residential school for the deaf with ASL as my primary language all my life. I have a deaf sister and I am a proud mother of two sons who are in the interpreting world. I worked as an advocate for the deaf to assure that the deaf individuals are treated equally for last 9 years. I hope to work with you on enriching your signing skills! 😊

About Susie
I am a graduate student of MASLED program at Gallaudet University. I am proud to say that the quote, MASLED graduates is the “ASL army” is mentioned by our Gallaudet University President, Bobbi this year. It reflects how we take our language, ASL seriously and protect ASL as our unique language.
I am the mother of 3 adult sons and two of them are interpreters for the deaf. I also have a deaf sister. I grew up in residential school for the deaf with ASL as my primary language. I had been teaching ASL all my life to my friends, relatives and neighbors. A few of them went on to become interpreters. I taught classes at various sites such as employment places on deaf sensitivity training and ASL classes.
I am easy going and put students at ease by discussing our favorite subjects such as pets, hobbies or family. Once the students feel comf
ortable, they are ready to learn!! 😊
Give me a chance and you won’t regret it.
