Private American Sign Language Teacher

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.

My classes are voice off, but I have many visual cues along with text that will help students underst

Patient, clear, provide examples to explain concepts, a pleasure to be taught by her.
Linda
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!
Micah
Mrs. Williams is an awesome teacher. She is very patient and kind. I am not def and not very coordinated but I am actually learning and using what I learn, correctly, with my best friend who I recently reconnected with. Thanks Mrs. Williams for making this so much easier than I expected and working with me through my challenges!

Private American Sign Language Teacher

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

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!

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.

Online American Sign Language Teacher

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.

"Kat has proven to be such a valuable and wonderful teacher. From the beginning of our process of starting ASL lessons for my daughter, she was communicative, thorough and 100% professional. Once our lessons began, she proved to be an incredible instructor (my daughter loves her lessons) as well as conscientious in our lesson schedule. Further, even when we need to change our lesson due to a scheduling conflict, she is very understanding, which I have appreciated. I can not recommend Kat enough!!!"
