I have a BA in services to the Deaf with a minor in Interpreting. I currently teach ASL for the local technology center. In my classes I teach not only the signs but also add culture. I will share personal stories and things that happened when I was learning, that if someone had told me different I would not have offended people. I will teach you by association and explain why some signs are what they are. If you are looking for a fun , and informative class sign up for mine today.

Starlla is amazing she is very patient, doesn’t mind me asking all kinds of questions or doubts I may have on the lesson. She has a very positive attitude and makes you feel at ease which helps a lot when you are a beginner.
Ava
Starrla is so kind and smart. She has taught me so much and we have become great friends!
Carol
Starla makes it a point that you understand why certain signs are signed the way that they are and gives examples to make it much easier for you to remember. Patience is what she has a lot of. Trust me, if she can be have patience with me, you got it made in the shade. She will continue to go over and over signs with you until you got it down pat. If you are looking to learn ASL, I highly recommend Starla.

Brad is an incredible instructor; he has an uncanny knack for being able to simplify a very nuanced, complicated form of communication. He makes it entertaining and fun while simultaneously imparting a massive amount of knowledge in each session.

Being born to deaf parents, my first language is American Sign Language. I am a CODA (child of deaf adult). My primary language is English and an expert ASL signer. By nature, Im apart of the Deaf/HH community and look to grow in advocating. I would like to reach hearing parents with deaf children or even hearing children with deaf parents by helping them advance in using their sign language skills proficiently.
I’m also interested in working with students whom are interested in ASL as a second language or even a hobby. Taking ASL in high school and need tutoring? I can assist in learning the visual and gestural communication of the signing.

Amber covered a lot of ground in 30 minutes but was very clear in her explanations. I also felt very comfortable, which is so important!

She has helped me and 2 year old daughter become more fluent with ASL and she does a very great job 👍🏽 We will continue to grow with her. Thanks for your support and help!
Tamsin
Amber is fantastic with kids as well as kind and patient. She is a native speaker of ASL and can answer any question you have about it. Unfortunately for the last few months she's missed about every third class without even an apology. For the last two weeks she's completely no showed to lessons and is no longer responding to email.

This was a first for us completing online cheer training to keep my daughter engaged throughout COVID lockdown. Cheryl was kind and supportive of my daughter as she tried new cheers and movements.
Her daughter was also a great co-teacher!
Looking forward to week 2.
Kristiana B.
Cheryl was great!! She was very knowledgeable and patient. My daughter was able to learn what we would consider a lot on the very first lesson. Despite the technical difficulties we were having with our personal equipment Cheryl was able to work through those issues with us and continue a lesson. She was friendly kind and reassuring to my daughter who doesn’t always have the most confidence in herself. She is helping her learn something that she really wants to do And helping her with her self-confidence as well! Couldn’t ask for anything more! Thank you so much take lessons and Cheryl

Do you want to learn how to communicate with the Deaf? Are you intrigued by the use of sign language? Come learn with me. I am Deaf and I use American Sign Language. My brother is also Deaf, so we grew up using ASL together and at school. I have been teaching online for the past 5 years, and I love teaching others how to improve their communication skills in ASL. Sign language is one of the most expressive languages, have you seen an interpreter recently on the new? Have you noticed how fast they move their fingers, and make a variety of facial expressions. I can help you, no matter what level of ASL you know, I want to help you make progress and become fluent. I have a toddler and he is learning ASL, if he can, you can! See you in the classroom!
