I'm Deaf and ASL is my primary language. I have tutored many people in learning Deaf culture. I also have experience in tactile with Deaf Blind and talking to those who are Deaf with low vision. I love helping people learn about the Deaf community and teach them to be able to communicate with those who are Deaf. I look forward to working with you. American Sign Language is a visual language. The shape, placement and movements all are needed to convey information correctly. Also, as a Deaf person I am a part of learning and this is an integral part of learning asl as well. I have spent my whole life teaching people how to communicate with me and others who are Deaf. If you have any additional questions, feel free to contact me. I'm look forward to meet you!

I have been taking lessons from Melissa for a little while now and we continue to meet each week. She is extremely patient with me and has helped to boost my confidence as I go into my ASL III class this fall. I would recommend her to anyone wanting to learn ASL.
This is amazing. I have been looking for a way to learn sign language and this is very easy and fun at the same time. I am excited to learn more.
Melissa, is an amazing teacher! She taught me not only about her cultural but how to accurately use her language. I am now an active Educational Interpreter and when people complement my skills they actually complementing Melissa! I would highly recommend taking lessons with her.
