Overview

Hi, I'm Krista. I am a professional sign language instructor as well as Certified Baby Sign Language instructor with many years of experience teaching everyone of all ages this beautiful language from the comfort of their own home through online lessons here on TakeLessons.com! as well as private one on one lessons for those students in the local area. I gear each lesson to help my students learn to sign in a fun and educational way. I graduated from the University Of New Hampshire with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Sign Language and am also certified as a Baby Sign Language instructor with a specialty in teaching children and adults this beautiful language from the comfort of their own home! I have a passion for helping students learn in such a way that best fits their individual needs. Everyone learns in a different way, and I find that when you gear each lesson towards your student's individual learning style it not only helps put their mind at ease but it helps them learn faster as well. Thank you for taking the time to read my tutoring profile, and if you think I would be a perfect fit to help you with your tutoring needs, then please feel free to message me. I look forward to working with you.

Have a great day!

Krista

Krista was great for my 8 year old daughter who showed a desire to learn sign language. She immediately showed me her name spelled out in sign language. Great job Krista!

Krista's professionalism and personal attention to detail shined through as I learned American Sign Language. She has a deep love for the language and provides individual personal attention to make sure you learn the most during each lesson while having a lot of fun. I would recommend her whether you have a child wanting or needing to learn or for yourself as a beginner, intermediate or advanced language learner in ASL. Thank you Krista for a great experience!

We went over new vocabulary and she can be just as concise and comprehensive as you need her to be. She's also very encouraging and kind. Thank you so much Krista!

Krista has been patient and encouraging. We have skyped for our lessons and she is very reliable. She has never changed times or forgotten a lesson. She is happy to teach me whatever I am wanting to learn and provides examples for what we discuss. I am learning much from her and am enjoying the experience.

I've been tutoring with her for a few weeks now, and I have to say she is a great tutor! She is very patient and accommodating, and when I struggle with a certain vocabulary term, she is there to break down each motion of the sign to help me understand what the motions are. My grades have improved and I am very grateful that I found such an awesome tutor.

Having Krista as my tutor was one of the best decisions I ever made. Krista is impeccable in the way she prepares you to be successful, she points out the little pitfalls you might encounter so you're not surprised if and when you're faced with any difficulty during the lesson. I've found Krista to be a very positive and nurturing teacher, who sincerely cares about her students. Because of my positive experience with Krista, I look forward to further success in my studies.
