Hi, my name is Alan. I am a college graduate who is deaf and fluent in ASL, but can also speak and lipread well. I am presently volunteering to teach a sign language class to a group of hearing students in a local public library on Tuesday evenings. I have been teaching/tutoring ASL privately for over 8 years. I would love to help you learn ASL and interact with deaf people using the expressive and receptive skills that I have mastered throughout my life. I am a very patient teacher who would like to see you become successful in conversing in ASL. I am available to provide you with my tutoring service in the mornings, afternoons or evenings during the week. Please contact me if you are interested

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.

Alan is a very Thorough instructor. He explains things so it’s easy for his students to learn. Thank you for your patience. Looking forward to next weeks class.
I've been teaching American Sign Language for 5 years, and signing myself for 18 years, and my students have gone on to develop a love for ASL, Deaf people, and Deaf culture. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to carry on a simple conversation in the language, and as time goes on you'll be able to feel totally at ease with Deaf people. I have great online tools you can use for free to practice between lessons, and I'm flexible with any other resources we use. I can't wait to meet you!
I have been signing since 1998, spending every chance I can among my Deaf friends and immersing myself in the language as often as possible. I received my BA in Music with a certification to teach at Lubbock Christian University in 1998. Later I attended the Interpreter Certification program at Burlington County College in New Jersey from 2009-2011, and during that time took a summer course at Gallaudet University for the Deaf in Washington DC. Then in 2014 I received my MEd in Curriculum and Instruction with Instructional Technology from Houston Baptist University. I have been teaching ASL at the high school level since 2011. I am also one of the interpreters for the Deaf at my church in Fort Bend County, TX, outside of Houston, where I am a member and actively involved in the Deaf Ministry.
Please feel free to ask me any questions y
ou have. I'm happy to get back with you, and I look forward to teaching you!
Congratulations on taking the first step to learn the beautiful language of ASL! After studying under Deaf professors myself, I am thrilled to offer you help along your learning journey! I offer between 25-30 ASL lessons which will help a complete novice cover all of the ASL beginner lessons and learn about Deaf history and culture.
Want to learn to speak Spanish? Sign ASL? I would love to be a part of your journey! I am a patient, and friendly person, who is passionate about language learning!
SPANISH: I use my own personal learning experience mixed with a communicative approach to create a teaching method for my Spanish students. My Spanish teaching method focuses on the development of these four skills: speaking, listening, reading, and then writing. Do you have specific goals? Great! Or are you learning just to be able to speak any and all that you can? Awesome! I teach beginner and intermediate and am a conversation partner and tutor for students more advanced! Also be prepared to be challenged to get involved with the Latin American culture around you!
ASL: My lessons will give you a strong foundation in Sign, and then a few training wheels until you fee
l confident in what you know, and can converse about various real-life topics. My teaching method utilizes much of Deaf professor Dr. Bill Vicars' approach--with signed conversation in each lesson beginning with high frequency concepts. Each lesson is full of new signs, grammar, conversation, Deaf culture tidbits, and more.
About me: I fell in love with language when in 2010 I lived, studied, and worked abroad in Colombia, South America. There I studied Spanish, worked with Deaf students, and taught Spanish speakers English. It was such an enriching experience that upon returning to the USA, I decided to fully surround myself with culturally diverse individuals and continue my learning journey.
One of the major differences between learning a language in a classroom and having a personal instructor is that one-on-one help you will receive --- specific to your level, learning style, and language goals. I will help you stop feeling nervous, renew your motivation, and get you communicating in a new language in no time!!
Joy accurately assessed our daughter’s abilities and catered each lesson to engage, as well as challenge her. Our daughter enjoyed her online sessions, where she not only gained conversation experience, but also expanded her vocabulary and conjugational skills. She will be starting this school year with greater confidence in her Spanish class. Thank you so much for all your help, Joy, and we look forward to more lessons with you!

I just had my first lesson on TakeLessons and couldn't have picked a better instructor. Joy moves at a pace well-suited to my current comprehension of ASL and pays attention to every aspect of how I'm signing in order to help me improve. Loved it!
Hello, my name is Vanessa! I am an experienced Sign Language teacher, specializing with beginner/intermediate students. I have known Sign Language for several years now. I am very flexible when it comes to my curriculum. It all depends on you, the student. I want to help you not only learn signs, but to be able to have full conversations. Try it out yourself!
I am a hardworking and passionate ASL teacher! I have my degree in Sign Language Interpreting so I have a lot of knowledge not only in Signs, but true ASL and deaf culture. I have taught multiple levels of students. Children from age 3, some who had multiple disabilities and were non-verbal, teens, and adults. I am committed to my work and will make sure that you’re getting the most out of every single lesson with me, as all lesson plans are 100% personalized! So come learn with me very soon!
Have you ever wanted to learn American Sign Language, but couldn’t find out where? Here is an opportunity for you to learn at your pace and your convenience. I first began learning Sign Language back in 2nd grade. In high school my school offered both ASL 1 and 2. I then became more interested in the Language and decided to major in Deaf Education. I have been in the Deaf Education field for 6 years now and I enjoy helping my students communicate using ASL. I hope to connect with you soon!
I am a certified teacher of the Deaf. I currently teach 2nd grade. I have also taught PK-2 and 5-8th grade. I graduated from Kent State University in Ohio. I recieved my Bachelors Degree in Deaf Education.
I have tutored students that need extra help with reading and math. I have also tutored parents of children that are deaf. I volunteer at my church and teach American Sign Language.
If you are deaf, your child is deaf, or you simply want to learn a new language. I recommend you choose me as your American Sign Language teacher.
She was very professional. She was on time; stuck to the program; and was very polite.

Ava Haynes is a phenomenal force. The Young Beauty Academy had ASL teacher Ava Haynes and the girls were signing in sentences within 1 hour. I never have seen a person so gentle and thorough with children. The children had the best experience because of Ava Haynes expertise. We will definitely have her for the next group of Young Beauties.
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.
I am an instructor at the local Technology Center. I have been signing since 1990. I started out in a night college class as a junior in high school. My dad told me I needed to get a head start on my college life. I asked him what was I going to take...He opened up the newspaper and there it was...The headlines read...New class to offered, Sign Language. I enrolled the next day and have been signing ever since. I have to say it was difficult at first because I speak english, and all the words like and, but, or, was etc were NOT in the signing vocabulary.
Sign Language is not something you will learn overnight. You also have to practice or you will loose what you have gained. I still to this day practice. I practice while I am driving and well needless to say people stare at me....Oh well at least I know I am retaining my pas
sion. I stay involved with the Deaf community as much as I possibly can. I do have many Deaf friends that well keep me on my toes at times. They like to facetime me and show me a new sign they either made up or someone has showed them and they do not understand why it means what it does. I hope you will give me the opportunity to teach you ASL. It is my passion and I love to see people have an interest. Thank you and hope to see you soon
I am a teacher of the Deaf, a part of my job is to incorporate sign language into their lesson plans, I am fluent in ASL and my lessons can range from beginner to advanced. Each of my students will have a unique curriculum based on their goals/needs. Shoot me a message to see if we would be a good fit!
Hello all, my name is Brad and I’m a teacher of the Deaf, I have three masters in different areas of Education.
My goal is to teach and help build confidence in each of my students when it comes to sign language, I will create a unique curriculum for each and every one of you. I teach all levels, from beginner to advanced.
I have been signing fluenty since 2010. I am working on becoming a certified interpreter and have interim taught within the Deaf community. I will make your learning experience fun and provide feedback along with insight and etiquette when signing.
Hello! I have my BA in Fine Arts and have been teaching arts since 2015. I also am active and have taught in the Deaf community ASL since 2012.
"She is very nice. We did a lot of review on fingerspelling, numbers, colors, gender identifications and many more basics. Flexible. Having a good time."
"Mr. Slate is one of the best teachers I have ever had! He is funny, kind and compassionate and he loves his students and is invested in making sure they s
ucceed in his class. ASL has changed my life because of him and how he teaches us that it isn't just a language, but also a culture. He makes learning fun and therefore it allows me to do better in his class. He's awesome! Anyone would be blessed to have him as a teacher!"
"Victoria is an amazing teacher! She is super helpful and I definitely recommend her. If you want to learn sign language, she is the person to do it with."
"She is an awesome teacher and teaches me food related words!!"
"Tony does an amazing job of connecting with and working with his students to help them reach their goals at a comfortable speed. He keeps things fun and
entertaining while continuing to meet and exceed my goals."
"Sessions are productive"
"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!"
"Carla was beyond amazing. Our group loved her. Thank you so much.
So patient and attentive."
