About Kaitlin W.

I currently work in a field where I educate and guide young individuals with disabilities through their transition from high school to post-secondary training and beyond to the world of work. During my free time, I teach American Sign Language. My background in Sign Language is more of a personal experience - I grew up speaking/using two languages - English and American Sign Language. I have a hearing loss which propelled me to learn sign language at a young age. Now that American Sign Language is recognized as an official language, and more educational institutes are offering Sign Language as a course, I cannot help but become more eager to teach sign language or even tutor those who are currently taking classes. Come and take a class with me! I promise you that I am laid back and patient, but I will help push you to become comfortable with Sign Language.

Kaitlin is a great instructor! Super flexible and understanding -- we walked through what the curriculum would look like moving forward, and how I can practice and test my comprehension! Felt very comfortable -- I'm so excited for my next lesson!

I took weekly private online lessons with Kaitlin for 5 months. She was very open to hearing my goals and the specific areas I wanted to work on and brought different ideas to the lessons to add variety. She was flexible, non-judgmental, and helpful. I really enjoyed and learned from our lessons and highly recommend Kaitlin.

Needed someone who knew ASL to practice signing with, especially with the pandemic closing Deaf events. She was very nice and met me at my signing level. She answered all of my questions. I feel like my receptive and expressive signing has improved and will continue to improve.

Kaitlin was clear in her instructions and expectations. I know zero sign language, and she was friendly and encouraging. I got really excited about my progress just in the 30 minutes we had together and I am very excited to learn more!

Im stone deaf and a bit self conscious and shy, i felt so comfortable with my first class, i was really nervous before it started. Kaitlin was so easy to understand, patient and i had so much fun, i was laughing and laughing and wasn’t scared. She helped answer questions and taught in a fluid way. Her personality and passion really comes through, such a cool woman who can explain and guide well! Highly recommend meeting her and trying a lesson out
