I was interested in learning to sign from the time I was a little girl. American Sign Language and the Deaf culture have always been fascinating to me. When it was time to choose a college and career, I sought a way to use ASL in my daily life. I became a Teacher for the Deaf, and I continue to have a passion for both the language and the culture. I want to share that passion with you!

I have been a Teacher for the Deaf for 5 years. I work daily with students who use ASL as their main form of communication. In addition to meeting their individual needs, I create goals and implement direct lessons to help them learn and improve ASL.

I learned American Sign Language in a formal college setting. I learned ASL from both Deaf and hearing instructors. I met several times weekly with my professors in the classroom setting and participated in "immersion" hours throughout my college career. Now, I use it daily to communicate with my students and other professionals.

About Robyn D.

"Turtle." It was the first sign I learned as a kid, and it stuck with me. From that time forward, I wanted to learn American Sign Language. I didn't have the opportunity until I reached college, where I dove head first into the world of ASL and the Deaf community.

I earned a Bachelor's Degree in Education with certifications in Deaf Education and Elementary Education. I have been a Teacher for the Deaf since graduating college in 2014.

I have a passion for the language and the culture. I want to share that passion with you!

We will start wherever you are and with whatever you want to learn! If you're just starting out, we will start by learning the alphabet and numbers, along with some of the grammatical rules of American Sign Language. We will quickly develop a working vocabulary, and you'll be having silent conversations before you know it!

I am available to teach online and in person. Hope to see you soon!
