Hello There!

I am a Deaf ASL instructor, and I've been teaching since 2015. I've enjoying to see my students develop a sense of ASL, which is a beautiful and visual language to learn.

Once you take a few ASL classes, you will build your signs skills to able to converse with Deaf people and learn about Deaf Culture.

About Purnima R.

My name is Purnima, and I am a Deaf ASL Instructor. I graduated from the University of Northern Colorado with TASL (Teaching American Language in a Master's Degree). I have been teaching ASL since 2015 in different local public schools. I also worked as a Teaching Assistant for the Deaf School.

I love to teaching ASL, which is my passion. I enjoy watching my students become fluent in ASL. Most of my students who come back to my classes want to continue to learn ASL. They continue to develop their skills, which is evident when they practice their signs skills to chat with me.

Anyone who likes to learn about ASL, you came to the right place. I can teach you ASL in all aspects of the lessons, including ASL discourse.

My teaching style is very flexible, comfortable, and adapt to any learning styles to learn ASL.


I look forward to meeting you!

Purnima

Purnima is an excellent teacher! I have been taking her beginner lessons for a couple of months now and her patience and enthusiasm are incredible. She is very interactive with all of the students and will help you gain confidence as you learn new signs. I hope that everyone has a chance to experience Purnima's teaching!

I have tried many ASL tutors. Purnima is the best. She is very friendly and she leads the conversation into things that I am interested in. She corrects me right away when I make a mistake and she is so encouraging, always telling me when I am improving. I have had to reschedule a couple times and she has been very accommodating. I would highly recommend her!

Purnima made if so fun to learn the language. She has such a light that shines threw in her signing and it makes me want to be more like her. She is also great on making small goals for me to work on so I can succeed and meet my full potential. Overall it was a wonderful experience. It just made my love for ASL even stronger. Thank you, Purnima!

Purnima is my favorite ASL instructor. She is so kind and really adaptive to where I am. She picks up on what I know and what I need help with easily and pushes me just enough. I really enjoy working with her and she provides wonderful understanding and insight into Deaf culture.

She is very kind and helps me with questions regarding deaf culture. Based on a few of her group classes I picked her as my private teacher and I'm so glad I did. Today she informed me about the name sign which was a very good lesson that I never knew. Thanks Purni!

I love learning from Purnima! Not only a I getting fully immersed in language, I get to learn about Deaf culture. Purnima makes learning vocabulary easy, and takes the time to answer questions if something doesn't makes sense. She is so sweet and kind, and I would recommend any classes with her.
