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.

About Joy
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!!

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!

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!

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.

About Tanya H.

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 feel that my way of teaching sign language is great for beginners who do not know any Sign at all or those who are looking to learn signs related to the food industry!

About Edward
I have experience with ASL in classroom setting, real world experience, and in the workplace. Prior to a lesson, contact me with the subject material you would like to learn about (ex. types of coffee if you work at Starbucks), or if you would just like a general lesson. Feel free to ask any questions before choosing to learn with me!

I've been signing for almost 19 years. I have a Deaf son who is now an adult. Initially, I taught him and myself sign using library books. A few years ago, I went to college to study ASL, as well as Deaf culture. I actually know 2 different forms of sign language. Signing with me is FUN because it is my passion and is close to my heart as it's how I communicate with my son, his wife, and quite a few friends. Opening one's mind to ASL is akin to learning to SEE SOUND!

About Rachel
I've always liked sign language, after learning the alphabet as a child. I never really had a reason to learn it until I found out that my son was deaf. Initially I was concerned for him & any struggles he may go through because of it. That honestly dissipated quickly for me. I could now communicate with my kid! WooHoo! His very first signs were "cookie" & "crackers" because I had to bribe him to sign with me. His Deafness & our learning sign became our adventure! From brightly colored, tie-dyed hearing aid molds, to me teaching the neighborhood kids how to sign so that they could easily play together. Then discrimination from his school district set in. Momma bear came out. I found an attorney willing to take the case pro bono, I got my son a Deaf advocate through a local community service, and called our local newspaper & shared the sto
ry with them. Through that newspaper article, more parents came forward & reached out to me for help. That was the moment I realized my purpose in life; be it teaching sign, advocacy, sharing the rich culture that comes with it all.....This was & is my purpose. On an ironic little side note, I actually used to be semi-professional singer/ songwriter. Haha! Now, from time to time, I do enjoy Interpreting songs into ASL. I'm passionate, fun, funny but I can be pretty bad with the corny jokes. If you & I ever work together with sign Language, just be prepared for a wonderful adventure, but still within the safe confines of modern society. Haha

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!
