I am an American Sign Language teacher and I would love to share my love for American Sign Language with you. I have a Bachelors Degree in Deaf Education, which is where I found my appreciate for this beautiful language and unique culture! I have taught ASL for two years to high school students and would love to find even more people who are interested in learning this language!
Whether you need help just starting small conversations, want to learn simple signs for your baby, or want to become fully versed in sign I can help you get there by practicing vocabulary, grammar, fingerspelling, and other essential skills needed to communicate with Deaf and Hard of Hearing people. Everyone has to start somewhere when they learn a new skill and I believe we can accomplish your unique signing goals together!

Hi, there! My name is Tonya! I've been teaching American Sign Language since 2016 and have loved helping my students learn essential vocabulary and grammar needed to have meaningful conversations with Deaf and Hard of Hearing people. I have grown up and lived in Oklahoma for my entire life. I went to the University of Tulsa and earned a degree in Deaf Education in 2016. I'm have been told that I am a fun person to work with and my classroom is usually filled with lots of laughter! I am hoping that teaching lessons online can help more people to enjoy sign language so we can close the language barrier between the hearing and the Deaf.
Please don't hesitate to ask me questions on my profile! I look forward to meeting you and starting your journey with sign language today!

Tonya was very welcoming and helpful! We accomplished so much in our first lesson. Definitely, recommend!
We learned colors today, as well as going over again the 5-parameters. Tonya is effective at teaching me sign, and I bet she would be for you too! I enjoy our classes very much.
