Private American Sign Language Teacher

am an American Sign Language teacher at a private school in Pennsylvania. I began this job after moving up north from Tampa, FL where I taught ASL at the University of Tampa! I grew up signing and have grown my passion into my career! I made history by being the first person to perform the National Anthem in American Sign Language for the Philadelphia Flyers and have performed for the Tampa Bay Rays and Reading Phillies as well. I have made it my life goal to teach as many people ASL as I can to add to the Deaf Community and spread awareness about deafness and Deaf Culture.

I teach ASL levels 1-5 and can teach as fast or slow as necessary! I can't wait to get to know you and show you my passion for this wonderful language and culture!

Private American Sign Language Teacher

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!

First class, very excited and a wonderful teacher !

Carla is like a friend you’ve had forever. She gears lessons to your level and interests and is patient with my senior brain that needs a lot of repetition. She is also happy to give me time to write down notes for later. Her constructive criticism about hand position, etc. is really helpful, and I know she is paying attention to me!
Allyn L.
I am really excited about my ASL lessons with Carla. She was very congenial and easy to warm up to immediately. She is patient and gave me time to take notes which help me review later. Carl geared the lesson toward my level of experience and was happy for me to ask questions anytime. She gave me good pointers on my hand position. I think she will be an exceptional tutor!

Private 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.
