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.

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.

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.

I have worked with Vanessa in teaching ASL. For starters, she has a lot of experience both as an interpreter and a teacher. She is down to earth and patient in her teaching style. She also works very hard to reach every student individually which enables her to deliver outstanding lessons! I 100% recommend taking lessons with Vanessa!
