- Levels Taught:
- Beginner, Intermediate
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.

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.
Assisted in teaching ASL levels 1 & 2 to community and church members.
Teacher of Deaf children where academic instructions were done in American Sign Language. Topics including Math, Science, Writing, Reading and Literacy, Vocabulary and Social Studies.
Patient, clear, provide examples to explain concepts, a pleasure to be taught by her.
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!
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!Show More
Brandy Q is patient, organized and make the lesson a real pleasure. No idea how I remembered all those words in 1 session only. She made it look so easy and fun at the same time.
Looking forward to be able to hold a full conversation in ASL.
