Tony S.
My name is Tony and I can't wait to meet you! I've been teaching formal and private lessons since 1996 and have loved helping my students learn American Sign Language while developing confidence in their skills. I went to Harding University and was trained and tutored by a Master ASL Instructor as well as the Deaf community. I'm a patient and fun person and my teaching style is highly interactive. I look forward to helping you reach your goals!

Hello everyone! My name is Victoria. I have been active in sign language for several years now. I recently graduated with a degree in Sign Language interpreting which I love with all my heart. I've had the joy of teaching students with multiple disabilities from the ages of 3-8 and taught group classes for all ages in our community where I live. ASL is a BEAUTIFUL language. Come learn with me and I assure you that you will agree!

Tony is a patient teacher who loves his subject and his students. He loves to teach, and truly gets excited when he sees his students "getting it". He is a rare teacher because he is so connected personally to the subject and to every student. He is a great encourager and motivator, and he is extremely skilled in ASL. This is no "side job" for him. He is devoted to the deaf community, and part of that devotion is teaching hearing folks to communicate with the community he loves so much. If you want to learn ASL, you will not be disappointed with Tony.

Tony teaches from the heart. Tony has given my child the confidence he needs to succeed while teaching him ASL. He has picked up so quickly and I am constantly amazed at what he has learned. I can't say enough good things about the way Tony interacts with students to make them feel like they can accomplish anything they set their mind to. We are grateful to have him in our child's life. We highly recommend him to friends and family.
