About Kelly H.

I’ve been signing since I was a baby. I am deaf in one ear and grew up in a semi-deaf home. I’ll make every lesson fun and exciting, add things about the deaf culture for you to know and create fun ways for you to remember the signs forever. Do you want to know just basic signs? Or want to be able to use this for your job? Then you’ve definitely come to the right place! I’ll take you from beginner to however far you want to go in your journey with sign language!

About Kelly
I always say that American Sign Language was my first language because it sorta was. My grandmother who helped my single mom raise me, thought it was important for me to know sign language so I started signing before I could talk. I am deaf in one ear and the doctors always worried I might loose my hearing in my other ear. My current household now signs on a daily basis and I’m even teaching our one year old as well.

My lessons will always be fun and my students will walk away from each lesson knowing they have improved and will always have something to take away from each lesson. I realize everyone learns differently and am willing to work with my students on what is the best way to learn for them personally.

I have signed with my jobs in retail and the food industry, as well as helped out at local schools and hospitals on an as need
ed basis. I have also helped teach extended family basics so that they have an understand of this beautiful language!

I have a passion for the deaf culture, having been a part of it and growing up in it. It’s my hope that my students will have the same passion as well and a better understanding and be able to use ASL in their future endeavors whatever that may be.

About Rachel T.

Fairview, PA

I've been signing for almost 19 years. I have a Deaf son who is now an adult. Initially, I taught him and myself sign using library books. A few years ago, I went to college to study ASL, as well as Deaf culture. I actually know 2 different forms of sign language. Signing with me is FUN because it is my passion and is close to my heart as it's how I communicate with my son, his wife, and quite a few friends. Opening one's mind to ASL is akin to learning to SEE SOUND!

About Rachel
I've always liked sign language, after learning the alphabet as a child. I never really had a reason to learn it until I found out that my son was deaf. Initially I was concerned for him & any struggles he may go through because of it. That honestly dissipated quickly for me. I could now communicate with my kid! WooHoo! His very first signs were "cookie" & "crackers" because I had to bribe him to sign with me. His Deafness & our learning sign became our adventure! From brightly colored, tie-dyed hearing aid molds, to me teaching the neighborhood kids how to sign so that they could easily play together. Then discrimination from his school district set in. Momma bear came out. I found an attorney willing to take the case pro bono, I got my son a Deaf advocate through a local community service, and called our local newspaper & shared the sto
ry with them. Through that newspaper article, more parents came forward & reached out to me for help. That was the moment I realized my purpose in life; be it teaching sign, advocacy, sharing the rich culture that comes with it all.....This was & is my purpose. On an ironic little side note, I actually used to be semi-professional singer/ songwriter. Haha! Now, from time to time, I do enjoy Interpreting songs into ASL. I'm passionate, fun, funny but I can be pretty bad with the corny jokes. If you & I ever work together with sign Language, just be prepared for a wonderful adventure, but still within the safe confines of modern society. Haha
