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

I cannot recommend Carla enough for ASL classes. She is patient, thourough and a real pleasure to learn from. I am an older ASL student and working with Carla makes me optimistic that an old dog really can learn new tricks!

My college-level education has equipped me will the skills necessary to teach beginner-level Spanish courses. My courses could include any of the following topics: vocabulary, verb tenses (present, preterit, imperfect, the future, and conditional tenses, etc.), the geography of Latin American counties, Latin American Culture (holidays, music, etc.).

I desire to meet students exactly where they are with my courses, therefore, they will be designed around the student's specific wants and needs. I have always loved the Spanish language and culture, and I am especially thankful to have gotten opportunities to put my education to use through traveling abroad to Costa Rica, Mexico, Colombia, Puerto Rico, and the Dominican Republic.

Part of what makes one-on-one, virtual classes so unique and successful is the accountability aspect. With my classes specifically, I hope to help students achieve their goals faster and more effectively by creating a fun and encouraging learning ...

Learn Latin with real Latin! I focus on using practice sentences and passages written by actual ancient Roman authors instead problems from textbooks. It is a more interesting and fulfilling way to learn the language!

I spent one year living and studying Mandarin - Chinese in Beijing, China. I understand firsthand the difficulties that native English speakers face while learning this daunting language.

Through fun activities, important homework assignments, and the use of music, I help students overcome their fears and start speaking Mandarin from day one!

Message me for a sample lesson plan or to discuss group rates.

Marcos es un maestro bueno!

I took beginning Spanish from Mark. He directed me to a book on Spanish Verbs which I purchased and he was helpful in guiding me on how to study with it. I also had some Spanish correspondence which he translated for me. He has a pleasant personality and willingly answers questions. I highly recommend him.

"Isabel made Spanish fun! My eight year old Daughter is very creative and a free spirit. Isabel simply allowed her to be herself, playing games and doing crafts, while Isabel spoke solely in Spanish, clearly and concisely. She also brought play dough and other colorful shapes / crafts to stimulate conversation and learning in Spanish. My daughter is very much looking forward to the next lesson!"

"Mr. Psoras gave 4 lessons to my 8.5 yeal old daughter, Katherine. He evaluated her first for free, which was a clear indication that he works to achieve better results rather than to make more money. Mr. Psoras was always on time, responsive, friendly, enthusiastic. Greek is his native language, and he knows how to teach. He is full of resources too, so you won't get bored. We had to stop lessons on line because of an opportunity to continue lessons in person."

For each of them Roman finds themes interesting to talk about and write about. Grammar and other boring stuff are taken needed care of, but main emphasis of lessons are on free talk."
