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.

I love sign language! It is not only something I use as a Sign Language Interpreter but as an everyday language amongst friends.
What experience do I have?? I have had a lot of experience teaching sign language both for work and pleasure.
I have had experience working with many age groups teaching Sign Language. Some Elementary School-High School Level, Businesses and Employees seeking to learn ASL to enhance customer service opportunities, and even young children with multiple disabilities.
I cater to many different needs as well! I have taught many children and young adults learning just for fun! Others are more advanced and wish to pursue careers in Deaf Ed and Interpreting. Another one of my highly effective areas is helping those in the medical field learn to better assist their patients belonging to the deaf community.

What can you get from my class that you may not get from others? For starters, in teaching my own courses I have found the best ways to make learning ASL

About Victoria
Hello everyone! My name is Victoria and I am looking forward to having you join me in the ASL classroom! I have a degree in the field of Sign Language Interpreting, a job that I love with all my heart. I have worked with Deaf students from elementary to college levels and weekly enhance my skill with my constant contact with the Deaf community. I've had the joy of teaching ASL to students with multiple disabilities from the ages of 3-8 and taught group classes for all ages from the months of June - August in my community.

Teaching has allowed to me to experience a whole new love of Sign Language because I am able to help others not only learn fluent and correct ASL, but teach them about deaf culture! If you are a beginner interested in learning because its on your bucket list, let's get you started right with the true understanding o
f what American Sign Language is!

If you are an interpreting student or deaf ed student in need of some extra tutoring, or you're going back to school and would like to brush up on those skills, let's sharpen away!

If you are a business owner, employee, or otherwise that has contact with the Deaf community and would like to be able to provide services in a more effective way, your goal is my passion!

No matter what your ASL goals are, learning with me means you are going to reach them in the most productive, efficient, and personal way with a curriculum tailored to YOU.

ASL is a BEAUTIFUL language. Come learn with me, and no matter what your goals are for learning, we can accomplish them successfully together!

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!

I listen to voice through a Bluetooth device. Victoria speaks very clearly and it is easy for me to understand her.

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!

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

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! 😊

About Susie
I am a graduate student of MASLED program at Gallaudet University. I am proud to say that the quote, MASLED graduates is the “ASL army” is mentioned by our Gallaudet University President, Bobbi this year. It reflects how we take our language, ASL seriously and protect ASL as our unique language.
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.

I have been an American Sign language Teacher for 7 years and I have worked with a diverse population of students and adults. I am very involved in the deaf community and I continue to attend various ASL educator conferences such as ASLTA and So Cal ASL Educator's Collaboration Conference, etc. to name a few of my most recent interactions. It is important for me to remain involved in the community because I always learn so much from other teachers' experiences and to expose myself to new technologies as tools/recourses for ASL. All of that combined helps to make me a better ASL Instructor. I have experience working at a private school, public school (high school), and community college. I have experience working in a one to one setting and in a whole group.
Also, I have worked with parents that have deaf children, but only speak Spanish. Good news! I know Spanish! I am able to teach you a secondary language - English and Sign Language or Sign Language and Spanish or ...
