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.

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.

NEW!!! I am now offering 15 minute CHAT sessions. These are great for just chatting, brushing up on skills, etc. NO VOICE chat sessions! NO VOICE mentor or quick practice sessions! Use them how you would like!

I've been teaching ASL for 21 years and my students have gone on to develop a deep love of ASL and Deaf culture! I am passionate about teaching, Deaf ministry, and ASL!
Within the first few lessons, you'll start signing simple sentences and as time goes on, you'll be able to converse with people who are Deaf! You will also be learning about the culture of Deaf people at the same time.

PRACTICE PARTNER/SIGN COACH?
Nervous about meeting people who are deaf? Want to learn some tips to get over those first moments of nervousness? Do you just need someone to practice with? I would love to help you!

Some of my students book private lessons with me just to have someone to chat with and practice. The more you practice, the more confidence you will have. Sign up

About Tony
Thank you so much for checking out my profile! My name is Tony and I've been teaching formal and private lessons since 1996 and have loved helping my students learn American Sign Language while developing confidence in their skills. I went to Harding University and was trained and tutored by a Master ASL Instructor (CODA) as well as the Deaf community.

My former students have gone on to become Interpreters for the Deaf, Deaf Education Teachers, ASL Teachers, and leaders in Deaf ministry. In fact, I now teach with one of my former ASL students!

I'm a patient and fun person and my teaching style is highly interactive. I look forward to helping you reach your goals!

Please keep in mind that it is very important to practice in between sessions and complete all the suggested activities to help you accomplish your goals faster. ASL
is a VISUAL language and does not follow English grammar rules. ASL has its own grammar and syntax. In fact 50% of the language is comprised of nonmanual behaviors.

My favorite thing about teaching is getting to know my students. Every once in a while I will have a student that wants to be mentored beyond ASL skills and wants further mentoring in learning how to be the best they can be.

I enjoy teaching the Bible class for the Deaf at church as well as being involved in the Deaf community in this area. The Deaf community is a wonderful, vibrant, and very close knit group of people.

Thanks again for reading my bio. I hope to meet you soon!

Very clear to understand, patient, encourages me to try instead of doing things for me. I'm walking away from my first lesson much further along than I would have expected and feeling very positive about the experience. Thanks, Tony!

About Starrla S.

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.

About Starrla
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 so excited to begin lessons with you! When you choose me as your teacher you can expect hands on experience with sign language! We will make it into a game, we can use memory tricks to help you remember a sign for the long term and I will even from time to time I will bring in native signers (deaf people) to help me teach you! That is always the best way to learn is from a native singer! In a first lesson, I will assess where your skills are at and we will take it from there! I can teach you if you are beginning or even if you just want some practice signing with someone and you are at intermediate level! Maybe you are in school and you want some feedback. I am open to helping you achieve any goals you may have in sign language!

Alyssa is the best! I've been with her for a year now and she makes learning ASL a blast. She is extremely relatable, easygoing, and helpful. Class sessions are never boring because she's very engaging and treats everyone like genuine friends. My ASL skills have improved a lot in a short span of time and I actively look forward to our weekly meetings!

To give you an idea of my strong involvement in the deaf world, I am a graduate student of MA in ASL Teaching from Gallaudet University, the only university for the deaf in the world. I grew up at a residential school for the deaf with ASL as my primary language all my life. I have a deaf sister and I am a proud mother of two sons who are in the interpreting world. I worked as an advocate for the deaf to assure that the deaf individuals are treated equally for last 9 years. I hope to work with you on enriching your signing skills! 😊

I am the mother of 3 adult sons and two of them are interpreters for the deaf. I also have a deaf sister. I grew up in residential school for the deaf with ASL as my primary language. I had been teaching ASL all my life to my friends, relatives and neighbors. A few of them went on to become interpreters. I taught classes at various sites such as employment places on deaf sensitivity training and ASL classes.
I am easy going and put students at ease by discussing our favorite subjects such as pets, hobbies or family. Once the students feel comf
ortable, they are ready to learn!! 😊
Give me a chance and you won’t regret it.
