I love teaching ASL so much for it is my passion. I am a fun ASL teacher and you will love how fast you learn ASL. Sign up now. You can find my youtube videos online. My background includes having deaf parents and daughters that are deaf so I have been using ASL all of my life as it's my first language and I am a CODA (child of deaf parents). I have taught k-12 deaf students for over 30 years. My favorite subject is teaching American Sign Language (all levels) and interpreting which I taught at the local college for over 20 years. I have lifetime teaching credentials for k-12 and community college. Presently, I interpret for the deaf free-lance. I have taught over 3000 students over my many years of teaching, it is my love.

Dan is awesome to work with. I've had five 30 minute sessions so far, and now have switched to 60 minutes - I've even paid in advance for 20 lessons because I know I'll be continuing with him long term. Love that he's very detail oriented and corrects me when I sign less than perfect.

I love sign language! It is not only something I use as a Sign Language Interpreter but as an everyday language amongst friends.
What experience do I have?? I have had a lot of experience teaching sign language both for work and pleasure.
I have had experience working with many age groups teaching Sign Language. Some Elementary School-High School Level, Businesses and Employees seeking to learn ASL to enhance customer service opportunities, and even young children with multiple disabilities.
I cater to many different needs as well! I have taught many children and young adults learning just for fun! Others are more advanced and wish to pursue careers in Deaf Ed and Interpreting. Another one of my highly effective areas is helping those in the medical field learn to better assist their patients belonging to the deaf community.

What can you get from my class that you may not get from others? For starters, in teaching my own courses I have found the best ways to make learning ASL

About Victoria
Hello everyone! My name is Victoria and I am looking forward to having you join me in the ASL classroom! I have a degree in the field of Sign Language Interpreting, a job that I love with all my heart. I have worked with Deaf students from elementary to college levels and weekly enhance my skill with my constant contact with the Deaf community. I've had the joy of teaching ASL to students with multiple disabilities from the ages of 3-8 and taught group classes for all ages from the months of June - August in my community.

Teaching has allowed to me to experience a whole new love of Sign Language because I am able to help others not only learn fluent and correct ASL, but teach them about deaf culture! If you are a beginner interested in learning because its on your bucket list, let's get you started right with the true understanding o
f what American Sign Language is!

If you are an interpreting student or deaf ed student in need of some extra tutoring, or you're going back to school and would like to brush up on those skills, let's sharpen away!

If you are a business owner, employee, or otherwise that has contact with the Deaf community and would like to be able to provide services in a more effective way, your goal is my passion!

No matter what your ASL goals are, learning with me means you are going to reach them in the most productive, efficient, and personal way with a curriculum tailored to YOU.

I had a difficult time deciding on a teacher in the past on here because of early reviews people had after only one lesson. I decided to wait until I took all 10 of my one hour lessons with Victoria to give my insight. It has been a great experience me, and whether you are a little experienced with Deaf culture and sign language, or know absolutely nothing, I know you will benefit from taking classes with Victoria. I have felt my confidence communicating with Deaf people increase and I can feel that I am getting better each week. It has been great being able to go at (what I consider) a fast pace and not having to go at the slower pace of a large class, while still getting the attention to detail and ensuring that I am understanding and following the correct grammar and signs. I recommend that, while you take classes, you practice and put in work outside of that time so you can benefit even more from her lessons. I'm already looking forward to the next 10 lessons and hopefully more!

About Kelly H.

Close

I’ve been signing since I was a baby. I am deaf in one ear and grew up in a semi-deaf home. I’ll make every lesson fun and exciting, add things about the deaf culture for you to know and create fun ways for you to remember the signs forever. Do you want to know just basic signs? Or want to be able to use this for your job? Then you’ve definitely come to the right place! I’ll take you from beginner to however far you want to go in your journey with sign language!

About Kelly
I always say that American Sign Language was my first language because it sorta was. My grandmother who helped my single mom raise me, thought it was important for me to know sign language so I started signing before I could talk. I am deaf in one ear and the doctors always worried I might loose my hearing in my other ear. My current household now signs on a daily basis and I’m even teaching our one year old as well.

My lessons will always be fun and my students will walk away from each lesson knowing they have improved and will always have something to take away from each lesson. I realize everyone learns differently and am willing to work with my students on what is the best way to learn for them personally.

I have signed with my jobs in retail and the food industry, as well as helped out at local schools and hospitals on an as need
ed basis. I have also helped teach extended family basics so that they have an understand of this beautiful language!

I have a passion for the deaf culture, having been a part of it and growing up in it. It’s my hope that my students will have the same passion as well and a better understanding and be able to use ASL in their future endeavors whatever that may be.

I've been signing for almost 19 years. I have a Deaf son who is now an adult. Initially, I taught him and myself sign using library books. A few years ago, I went to college to study ASL, as well as Deaf culture. I actually know 2 different forms of sign language. Signing with me is FUN because it is my passion and is close to my heart as it's how I communicate with my son, his wife, and quite a few friends. Opening one's mind to ASL is akin to learning to SEE SOUND!

About Rachel
I've always liked sign language, after learning the alphabet as a child. I never really had a reason to learn it until I found out that my son was deaf. Initially I was concerned for him & any struggles he may go through because of it. That honestly dissipated quickly for me. I could now communicate with my kid! WooHoo! His very first signs were "cookie" & "crackers" because I had to bribe him to sign with me. His Deafness & our learning sign became our adventure! From brightly colored, tie-dyed hearing aid molds, to me teaching the neighborhood kids how to sign so that they could easily play together. Then discrimination from his school district set in. Momma bear came out. I found an attorney willing to take the case pro bono, I got my son a Deaf advocate through a local community service, and called our local newspaper & shared the sto
ry with them. Through that newspaper article, more parents came forward & reached out to me for help. That was the moment I realized my purpose in life; be it teaching sign, advocacy, sharing the rich culture that comes with it all.....This was & is my purpose. On an ironic little side note, I actually used to be semi-professional singer/ songwriter. Haha! Now, from time to time, I do enjoy Interpreting songs into ASL. I'm passionate, fun, funny but I can be pretty bad with the corny jokes. If you & I ever work together with sign Language, just be prepared for a wonderful adventure, but still within the safe confines of modern society. Haha
