Sign Language is an awesome form of visual communication! I love ASL and the deaf culture. I have years of experience and I'd be delighted to teach you. All ages welcome. Lessons are customized and catered to your needs and goals. Not only will you be signing like a pro in no time, but you will be able to communicate with the deaf and hard of hearing communities. Let's get started!

About Chaneé
Hey There! I'm Chaneé. I am an American Sign Language tutor and professional Actress. Over the years I have taught ASL to many actors for specific roles and just great students who wanted to learn to communicate with the deaf. If you have friends or family that is deaf or dealing with hearing loss learning ASL is a great way to communicate and build stronger relationships. Maybe you want to become an interpreter or just learn a song for a church service or a role in a movie. Many parents use sign language or baby sign to communicate with their children. No matter the reason, I'm here to give you all the ASL you want to learn at your pace.

I studied ASL and Deaf Culture at Philadelphia College and the Philadelphia School of the Deaf while attending the University of the Arts for Theater Arts. On top of my overachieving college studie
s.. I also have many deaf friends. I use ASL in my daily life and I'm always thrilled to share the culture and language with others. I am a very friendly person so expect a good time during your lesson. I can't wait to meet you!

Ms. Chaneé is one of the best instructors I could of found for my child. Not only was she super patient with my daughter but she made it fun for her to learn. She took the time to not only be her teacher but a her friend. I’m definitely recommending Ms. Chaneé to more people I know.

About Brandy W.

Close

Embraced by the Deaf community in the state of Massachusetts over 10 years ago, I was submerged in the language and the culture during and after losing what was left of my hearing. I’ve never felt so much love and support in my life. It was quite touching. During the whole “losing my hearing” process, I quickly picked up American Sign Language and began teaching at TLC Deaf.

My family relocated to a different state and I began teaching homeschooled students ASL online via other video chat apps like FT, Skype, etc.

I had no idea that this (TakeLessons) existed and I’m not even sure how I stumbled across this app. I’ve been seeing various vocabulary signed differently compared to what I learned so I’ve been joining classes as well. Furthermore, I believe that there will always be something for you to learn no matter how skilled you are.

I noticed that there were no morning classes during the week and figured that I could share what I know with those who prefer morning classes.

About Brandy Q
I’m fun, innovative, interactive and insightful. I believe that I am skilled at meeting people where they are, understanding how they learn, and adjusting my style of teaching to match their needs. My classes are voice off, but I have many visual cues along with text that will help students understand and flow.

First lessons can be hard because you don't know what knowledge your new student is bringing. Brandy understood when we could speed up and when we needed to slow down. She is very friendly and relaxed. As a beginner, I highly recommend her!

About Sara M.

Close

Hello! I first started learning American Sign Language as a young teenager and continued to develop a passion for deaf people and their culture as I later took additional ASL and deaf studies classes in college and became very involved in the deaf ministry at my church. I also worked as a counselor at a camp for deaf teens and kids when I was in college and spent my internship for my senior year in college in Russia learning the foundations of both Russian and Russian Sign Language and communicating with the deaf there. If you want to learn American Sign Language from someone who is very passionate about the deaf people, I would be your teacher! With me as your teacher, you will not only learn conversational sign language, but on the intermediate level I will also teach you the basics of interpreting. Regardless what level you are in signing, with me you will also learn much about the deaf and their culture. I hope to see you in class!

About Sara
Hello! I hold my Bachelor's Degree in both Cross-Cultural Ctudies and Biblical Studies and have 5 years experience teaching in the classroom and over 10 years experience teaching and tutoring privately, including both English as a Second Language, as well as guitar.

As a musician, I play not only guitar, but also mandolin, piano, ukulele, dulcimer, and banjo. I am passionate about the guitar and also incorporate music theory into my lessons.

A vast majority of my experience in teaching ESL comes from teaching overseas. I hold my TESOL certificate and would happy to tutor those learning to speak English.

I am also fluent in American Sign Language and would be able to teach anyone interested. I am very passionate about ASL and the deaf and would love to share that enthusiasm with you!

With 16 years as an ASL educational interpreter, my focus is on preparing you to interact in sign language in "real life", not just the classroom. Beginning students will dive right in with the most useful vocabulary for engaging in conversation, with an emphasis on the cool grammatical features that make ASL unique. Intermediate and advanced students will have lessons tailored to their experience to fill in gaps in their knowledge, focusing on the individual's strengths and weaknesses. I'm dedicated to leading students to a proficient grasp of ASL -- and making it fun. Wherever you are in your ASL journey, I look forward to working with you!

Since graduating with my BA in ASL/English Interpretation in 2003, I've never stopped trying to learn and improve myself. That's the attitude I bring to my lessons as well. I find teaching very rewarding, and I encourage questions and curiosity. Contact me and we can get the ball rolling!

Hello, My name is Shawna and I'm hard of hearing. I'm fluent in ASL . I only teach online or at the kroc center in Coeur D Alene for safety reason for myself and the student. I start off with the basics and I provide you a binder full of signs itself for you to study and I'm always available if you need me to explain longer. If the classes are online then I will share a Google docs with the same paper. We will first start with verbal communication as we sign. I am always signing when we are meeting for a session. After a while I'll test you to only sign when we are in session . As a tutor I will be explaining at first how to feel sign language and teach how to use the proper facial and body language because ,the deaf and hard of hearings can not always hear your emotions.

If you do want to meet in a different location we will have to speak about it.

I teach sign language because the language is a wonderful gift for us people to learn for our families, friends, work, and for ...
