I am a hardworking and passionate ASL teacher! I have my degree in Sign Language Interpreting so I have a lot of knowledge not only in Signs, but true ASL and deaf culture. I have taught multiple levels of students. Children from age 3, some who had multiple disabilities and were non-verbal, teens, and adults. I am committed to my work and will make sure that you’re getting the most out of every single lesson with me, as all lesson plans are 100% personalized! So come learn with me very soon!
Teaching non-verbal students ASL
Vanessa is amazing. So much structure and preperation in her classes.
this is my first lesson with vanessa but I switched teachers because i was not happy with my first instructor and already I love how structured she is and i'm so glad i switched.
Great teacher. I have enjoyed every private and group lesson I have taken with Vanessa. She is very patient with me and is willing to answer my many questions.
The review sessions, at the end of the lessons, have been a great way to reinforce the vocabulary and concepts covered during the lessons.
I am learning a great deal in a short time thanks to teachers like Vanessa.
I couldn’t ask for a better teacher. Vanessa challenges me and is very supportive. I get the most out of every lesson and am looking forward to our next session.
Vanessa was very friendly and encouraging. She really knows her stuff, both ASL and overcoming technology, when it inevitably fails. Looking forward to the next lesson.
I took ASL classes with Vanessa and I really enjoyed it. She helped me to understand everything I was learning and how to properly sign. She makes learning fun and easy. She’s very dedicated in what she does and I would recommend anyone to take Vanessa’s class.+ Read More

My name is Ida Vara. I am 55 yoa. I took a sign language class with Vanessa for 2 months. She is professional and passionate while teaching. The reason I provided my age is because Vanessa Is very versatile. She can teach any age group and not only do you learn but she makes learning enjoyable. At my age it is not easy to learn a new language, however with the professionalism,patience and knowledge Vanessa has anyone even someone at my age can learn. I highly recommend anyone taking her class.+ Read More
