Being born to deaf parents, my first language is American Sign Language. I am a CODA (child of deaf adult). My primary language is English and an expert ASL signer. By nature, Im apart of the Deaf/HH community and look to grow in advocating. I would like to reach hearing parents with deaf children or even hearing children with deaf parents by helping them advance in using their sign language skills proficiently.
I’m also interested in working with students whom are interested in ASL as a second language or even a hobby. Taking ASL in high school and need tutoring? I can assist in learning the visual and gestural communication of the signing.

I teach Conversational American Sign Language. If you want to be able to communicate effectively with Deaf people where you work, at your school, in church, or at the grocery store, you need this fun course. I like to teach students the way Deaf people really sign, and give them opportunities to interact with native ASL users to become comfortable in their signing.

About Catherine

Catherine was an amazing teacher with a lot of in-depth experience with both ASL and Deaf culture. She was able to explain the nuances of regional Deaf cultures and signs, and the history of ASL and how it informs the signs used to this day.

She’s very encouraging and easy to work with, and more than willing to tailor the classes to your specific goals. I was able to progress towards my goals and feel encouraged and better prepared to continue studying.

She has experience as an interpreter in hospitals, churches, classrooms and even signing in the home, all of which require very particular knowledge and context.

Most of all, she loves and works directly with the Deaf community and brings that care and experience to every lesson. Thanks Catherine!

Thank you, Miss Kat! Our beginners (elementary age) TOTALLY were in-tuned and enjoyed our first class session. What feedback I have seen was that Miss Kat knows how to engage our participants and giving them lead way to share their feelings and questions. Very fun, professional and personable especially for our summer camp turned online (due to Covid-19 restrictions in our state). THANK YOU SO MUCH and our summer class is looking forward to next week!

Kat is a beautiful signer with wonderful ideas for lessons. I can’t wait to continue working with her!

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!

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 session or quick practice sessions! Use them how you would like!

I've been teaching ASL for 23 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.

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!

Krista is so good!! Not only does she teach ASL in a way that makes sense, she is also very positive and encouraging. There have been many times when I have doubted myself or felt anxious about my ability, and she is the first one to encourage me to keep going and that my best is good enough. I think I will be using her for a long time coming, hopefully I can become fluent at some point! I would highly suggest if you're looking to learn ASL, you book with her. I started from complete beginner and have been with her for a few months.

"I had been wanting to learn sign language and more about the deaf community since seeing an ASL translator at my college in California. Now at a point where I am finishing up my college career, I decided to invest in classes (because why not try something new and interesting!). Online proved the best option and Eduardo was the #1 rated ASL teacher on TakeLessons.
I had a few questions and Eduardo immediately reached out to me. He was (and is) both friendly and informative in his communication. His teaching style is more conversational and personalized to the level and learning style of the student. He is patient yet pushes me forward in my learning by integrating sign language into daily parts of my life. For example, I am currently learning how to sign some of my favorite songs! Additionally, Eduardo presents a new challenge regularly for my personal growth in the language. I have been taking weekly lessons for 3 months and am now at the point where he says I can no longer use my voice along with my signs. The process of speaking interferes with the fluidity of signing...I'm really excited to see how my signing improves!
If you have the opportunity to invest in learning this beautiful language, I really encourage you to #1) try it and #2) take it with Eduardo. He will teach you so much and make it incredibly fun in the process. I feel like I've learned enough to fill a dictionary after each lesson! Eduardo genuinely cares and is excited to share this piece of his world with you...I couldn't be more thankful and plan to continue lessons with him indefinitely."
