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.

She was very patient and encouraging throughout the class. Love the fact that I had homework to do on my first class.
Carol
Starrla was so very patient with me and I know that she will be a great teacher, I can tell already. I can't wait until our next lesson; I am very excited. She made everything very clear to me and I liked that because I have not practiced in quite a long time and forgot quite a lot but she was able to get my mind on track and I did start remembering some signs. I love ASL!

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 learned ASL from the Deaf Community over 35 years ago so, I understand the cultural aspects of the language in addition to its linguistics. I received my AAS through an interpreter training program in 2010. Since 1998, I have been both an Educational and a Medical Interpreter through various agencies in my area. I am state certified and hold EIPA (Educational Interpreter Performance Assessment) credentials as well.

Hi, I am excited to share the beautiful language of ASL with you!
I am currently in an interpreting program, and have experience teaching friends and family in an unofficial setting.
I love to work with children or adult beginners!
I encourage constant practice, even if it's just in the mirror. I believe learning should be fun! I will include homework, but in a way that makes it interesting and fun for you! I love ASL and can't wait to help you learn to love it too!
