Quick view profile

I've been teaching American Sign Language for 5 years, and signing myself for 18 years, and my students have gone on to develop a love for ASL, Deaf people, and Deaf culture. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to carry on a simple conversation in the language, and as time goes on you'll be able to feel totally at ease with Deaf people. I have great online tools you can use for free to practice between lessons, and I'm flexible with any other resources we use. I can't wait to meet you!

About Carla

I received my BA in Music with a certification to teach at Lubbock Christian University in 1998. Later I attended the Interpreter Certification program at Bur

I have studied spanish for over 30 years and taught it for over 10. I speak it daily with native speakers from Venezuela, Puerto Rico, Dominican republic and Spain. My fiance is Venezuelan and I am teaching her english. This is not your typical high school spanish course. With the methods I use, I guarantee you will actually understand the concepts of spanish. One of my former students parents recommended that I give lessons online because of my unique approach. You will learn to speak as a native in a very creative way. I have a curriculum for all ages. I will help you become a successful spanish speaker. Empecemos!!

We feel so lucky to have found this instructor Lashon. Our daughter attends classes 2 day a week for Spanish class. She started last year in the 8th grade and is continuing over the summer. She struggled in the beginning But now she is thriving and love speaking her 2nd language.

By far the best Spanish instructor ever! He takes his time with you, and breaks things down so you could really understand the language. He teaches In a way I can understand when people are speaking, way better than high school classes that only teaches you how to read and write a little bit.

Sulina Baek is a good teacher that I had the fortune of working with over the past 2-3 months. She is patient and gives useful coaching tips to improve technique. At the same time, I never felt overwhelmed with too much information during our lessons. Sulina kept everything manageable and actionable and that helped me make a lot of progress. Thus we often covered a lot of ,music lesson, and frequently ran out of time. She is also very knowledgeable in canon and in theory, which has helped me figure out what standard to aim at during my own practice. Sulina helped me turn my motivation into audible results.

Alyssa is the best! I've been with her for a year now and she makes learning ASL a blast. She is extremely relatable, easygoing, and helpful. Class sessions are never boring because she's very engaging and treats everyone like genuine friends.

If you are serious about learning either French or Arabic, this is the best instructor. She is dedicated and her method is excellent. In our Arabic lessons, we target different sources of information and the lessons are comprehensive. I have been taking lessons for over 2 months and I get even more motivated with every lesson.
