Alan is a great teacher. His lessons offer a real mix of technical practice and information on deaf culture which I was looking for. He is flexible with time and always willing to 'chat' a few minutes longer than the lessons require. I would recommend him to anyone interested in learning (or improving their prior knowledge of) ASL online.

Alan is always well prepared and very thorough throughout lessons. I’m an adult student with a lot of experience learning languages. Alan challenges me without overwhelming me, slows me down so I’m sure to learn it instead of rushing ahead.

Kat is a very knowledgable teacher of ASL. I'm very impressed with her attention and respect for deaf culture. She's had high-level experience interpreting for the governor of CT. So cool with all those cameras! I highly recommend her for students of ASL in all levels, especially beginners.

Second, I have received training and teachings from professors and interpreters from College and Universities. So, I am trained to be familiarized with different settings and subjects, such as medical, educational, astronomy, computer/technology, and law.

I am dedicated to teach ASL to every student ready to learn. I am very eager to teach you this extremely unique and amazing language. I am also excited to meet you and begin our learning adventure! See you in class!

I have been communicating using American Sign Language for over 15 years. I have a bachelor's degree in American Sign Language interpreting. I have been an interpreter for 11 years and I am nationally certified through the Registry of Interpreters for the Deaf. All ages welcome. Lessons are customized and catered to the needs/goals of each student. Not only will you be signing in no time, but you will be building a strong foundation of grammar, vocabulary, Deaf Culture, and more. Let's get started!

About Tanya

I have been a professional American Sign Language interpreter for over 11 years. I graduated from MacMurray College with a Bachelors of ASL Interpreting and from Walden University with both a Master's degree in both Business Administration and Education.

I have also been playing the flute for over 22 years.

American Sign Language students can expect to gain the foundational skills for conversation. Students will also learn the history and culture surrounding the Deaf Community.

Flute students can expect to improve week to week in their technique. I can help any student to sing with freedom, confidence, and expression.

I teach students of all different ages and experience levels. I can teach American Sign Language students the grammar and vocabulary necessary for communicating in American Sign Language. I can teach flute studen

ts to read music and pursue classical excellence, to learn how to play contemporary music, or both depending on the goals and preference of the student.

As a nationally certified ASL interpreter, I am on the state registry of supreme court interpreters and have worked as the Director of a Community Center for the Deaf and Hard-of-Hearing. I have taught ASL privately for 20 years and professionally for 5 years.

I look forward to meeting you and helping you to reach your goals.

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.
