I am deaf! This is my language. I am able to paint pictures of vivid color and meaning with my hands. I love teaching as well and am thrilled when people want to learn ASL. I have been teaching ASL for over 10 years. I use many different ways to help students understand and remember what they learn. Lessons with me will be fun and interesting!!
About Melissa S.

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!

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.

I took my first lesson with Melissa today, and she was patient, supportive, affirming, and fun to work with. Looking forward to continuing!
