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!

About Carla

I have been signing since 1998, spending every chance I can among my Deaf friends and immersing myself in the language as often as possible. 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

Carla was so kind and helpful! I will definitely be taking more lessons from her in the future when I have the means, I've had a lot of tutors on a lot of different subjects and she is by far the most patient and forgiving.

Carla taught me how to communicate clearly and professionally. She is a great teacher and communicator. Her pedagogy is centered around progress and results without leaving empathy, mutual respect and encouragement.

As a teacher, I became Carla's client to reduce my accent and communicate better with my American students. Soon after, I saw great results both in my social interactions with people in English and in my teaching quality.

I would recommend Carla to anyone who wants to improve the way they communicate and wants to benefit from effective but kind and empathetic instruction.

Very good pace to lessons and was always patient if I needed to review.

I attended a level 1 ASL class with Deaf Access Services where Chelsy was my instructor. I continued doing private tutoring with her a few months after and she is amazing! She is dedicated and passionate about ASL, she took the time to make sure I felt comfortable in what I was learning and always had resources and materials readily available. I really enjoyed my tutoring with her and learned a lot.

After suffering complete hearing loss in 1 ear and starting to gradually lose hearing in the other I decided to learn ASL. I cannot say enough about the help and encouragement I have gotten from Chelsy. My wife is also taking lessons, and it will because of Chelsy we will be able to communicate .. Thank You
Chris
Chelsy was my ASL I teacher and we have used her as a private tutor for our family as one member loses their hearing. She is GREAT! She is flexible and uses the best teaching methods to help us remember things and be able to actually communicate! LOVE HER!!!

I chose Cressilia to further my child's ASL education when our school system dropped the course. The school has since brought ASL back to school, but Cressilia was very patient and was a great teacher. Thank you Cressilia!

"I thoroughly enjoyed my first lesson with Ava. We covered a lot of signs in this lesson. The pace was just right, not too fast or too slow. I took an ASL course years ago, but besides teaching baby signs to some of my speech therapy clients, I haven't used my ASL since.
Thanks Ava!"

He is a wealth of knowledge. He is kind, caring, and always well-prepared, and did I mention patient?? Thank goodness, because sometimes I feel pretty slow. He is very encouraging and helpful. He communicates well, whether through signs, facial expressions, typing, or verbally. Excellent instructor."
