Private American Sign Language Teacher

I teach and tutor in American Sign Language from the perspective of one who came into ASL and the Deaf community without a thought of being a professional in a related field. Still, I did become a professional interpreter, teacher, tutor, mentor and have been a service-provider, advocate and friend with many Deaf since 1984.

I want my students to learn that fear and anxiety in undertaking a new adventure are usually of our own making, and that learning about other cultures and languages by association with native users is so valuable.

Therefore, my classes are highly interactive and immersive; students will be required often to learn voice-off, role-play sign language / deaf experience situations, complete tasks between classes, and engage fully. Focus will be on conversational quality, grammatical structures, situational encounters, expressive and receptive language skills.

I will provide curriculum and, as needed, written information and videos used.

MARIE M.
I have known Allison for many years. In all that time, she has always advocated for the needs of the individual. This is one of her qualities that makes her a great teacher. She has a lot of experience in the Deaf community through interactions, experience and education. She is helpful, knowledgeable, thorough, and willing to make the extra effort to get a job done well. She is also very enjoyable, funny, and easy to get along with. She has been the “go to” person in the Deaf community for as long as I have known her.

Private American Sign Language Teacher

Hello, my name is Ariel and I am excited to be ASL teacher. I am immersed in the ASL language everyday as an Interpreter which has allowed me to become fluent. With experience in medical, educational, and teaching settings, I have learned the best and most effective ways to learn this language.

Why should you take lessons with me?
First, I work at the pace of the student, consider your goals, and your strengths/ limitations. Every lesson will be custom-made for you only. Second, I have received training and teachings from professors and interpreters from College and Universities. So, I am trained to be familiarized with different settings and subjects, such as medical, educational, astronomy, computer/technology, and law.

I am dedicated to teach ASL to every student ready to learn. I am very eager to teach you this extremely unique and amazing language. I am also excited to meet you and begin our learning adventure! See you in class!

My 14 yr old son and I really enjoyed our first ASL lesson with Ariel. This first lesson was critical for for my son who after 4 years of ASL lessons has been considering using his time for other areas of interest. I was really hoping this first lesson with Ariel would respark his enthusiasm. And, it did!!! Ariel was great about taking time to connect with us both, and build on common interests and teach ASL all at the same time. He was engaging, encouraging, and effective with his lessons. My son is excited for the next lesson! (Phew) Thank you Ariel!
