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.

"I had been wanting to learn sign language and more about the deaf community since seeing an ASL translator at my college in California. Now at a point where I am finishing up my college career, I decided to invest in classes (because why not try something new and interesting!). Online proved the best option and Eduardo was the #1 rated ASL teacher on TakeLessons.
I had a few questions and Eduardo immediately reached out to me. He was (and is) both friendly and informative in his communication. His teaching style is more conversational and personalized to the level and learning style of the student. He is patient yet pushes me forward in my learning by integrating sign language into daily parts of my life. For example, I am currently learning how to sign some of my favorite songs! Additionally, Eduardo presents a new challenge regularly for my personal growth in the language. I have been taking weekly lessons for 3 months and am now at the point where he says I can no longer use my voice along with my signs. The process of speaking interferes with the fluidity of signing...I'm really excited to see how my signing improves!
If you have the opportunity to invest in learning this beautiful language, I really encourage you to #1) try it and #2) take it with Eduardo. He will teach you so much and make it incredibly fun in the process. I feel like I've learned enough to fill a dictionary after each lesson! Eduardo genuinely cares and is excited to share this piece of his world with you...I couldn't be more thankful and plan to continue lessons with him indefinitely."

What is Black ASL?

Most people living in the United States are likely familiar with American Sign Language (ASL); even if they don’t know any signs, they know it exists. Even less people realize that ASL is not universal, but unique to the US and parts of Canada. Therefore, it’s probable that very few people living in the US realize that ASL has variations. Just as with spoken languages, which have various dialects and accents, there are also variations within ASL, and age, race, location, socio-economic c …
