Taught American Sign Language (ASL) full-time and part-time (nights) for 39 years, just recently retired from full-time teaching. I have primarily used Signing Naturally (SN) workbooks, all levels. I have also used Learning American Sign Language (LASL).
Currently, I am teaching Deaf Culture as an online course at San Diego Mesa College.
I have been using ASL since I was 4 years old and I have attended California School for the Deaf, Berkeley (Fremont) and Riverside. I have received valuable experience from Deaf peers of Deaf parents, Deaf adults and Deaf leaders. In this sense, I am a native user of ASL and ASL Fingerspelled Signs.
Graduated from Gallaudet College (University) in Washington, D.C. with a B.S. in Business Administration. I received two Masters degrees from California State University, Northridge, one in Deaf Education and the other in Educational Administration. I received my Doctoral degree in Educational Leadership from University of Southern California ...

We loved our first lesson and how knowledgeable, patient, and thorough Kat was. It is clear she puts time into creating her lessons and making sure they are fun and interactive. We are looking forward to many more lessons with Kat!
Catherine B.
Really enjoyed our first lesson. Kat is friendly, easy to talk to and ask questions of and I felt that we learned a lot right off the bat and not just the signs but a better understanding of the language in general and deaf culture. Highly recommend!!

This class can be done various ways.
1) I can tutor you for a ASL class you are currently taking.
2) I can help you keep fresh on ASL you already know (we can spend class practicing communication skills.
3) We can learn the basics (ABCs, Counting, Colors, and so on) Basically start from the beginning as an ASL 1 class and we can work our way toward understanding and communicating.

I have students who are doing this for their career in order to communicate to deaf people they come to contact with in their professional life. For those students I base our classes around signs they would use in there place of work. Some occupations of my current students include: Nurse, Social Worker, Santa, US Military, Flight Attendant, and more.
I also teach students who have zero ASL background and we start with the very basic signs and work our way to forming sentences and battling the ASL grammar.
No matter where you are in your journey of sign language, this class will be perfect for you.

Sarah took my completely overwhelmed daughter, who is struggling with her college ASL class vocabulary, and calmed her, reassured her, and helped her more thoroughly understand her signs. That was just after one 45-minute session. I’m excited to see where this leads, as she has already helped so much!

Just did the free intro class with you and really enjoyed it! You were patient and repeated things slowly when we needed it. My son's review: "I loved it and I learned a lot!"
My almost 10yr old son took it with me as he's been wanting to learn sign language to help him communicate. He's ADHD and gets frustrated super fast and likes to communicate non verbally when he's mad so we've been looking to learning "officially". We learned today the colors of the rainbow along with his favorite color gold, numbers and letters. We hope to take a paid class soon when we have discretionary funds :)
adrienne Joan Burton
Well done, Nicole. You truly care about us students.
Question: I was unable to question or comment while you were teaching. Please say how! /thanks

"Carla is great! She is very patient and she knows everything there is to know in ASL. She goes at your pace whether you're a slow learner or a fast learner. She has lessons planned out depending on if you're a beginner or more advanced. For example, she would teach colors or animals and then we would have a conversation in ASL about what we just learned and she would help me on any words I don't remember. She doesn't mind repeating herself either if she needs to. She is definitely the teacher/tutor you want!"
