I love sign language! It is not only something I use as a Sign Language Interpreter but as an everyday language amongst friends.
What experience do I have?? I have had a lot of experience teaching sign language both for work and pleasure.
I have had experience working with many age groups teaching Sign Language. Some Elementary School-High School Level, Businesses and Employees seeking to learn ASL to enhance customer service opportunities, and even young children with multiple disabilities.
I cater to many different needs as well! I have taught many children and young adults learning just for fun! Others are more advanced and wish to pursue careers in Deaf Ed and Interpreting. Another one of my highly effective areas is helping those in the medical field learn to better assist their patients belonging to the deaf community.

What can you get from my class that you may not get from others? For starters, in teaching my own courses I have found the best ways to make learning ASL enjoyable and easy. I go at your own pace is key and I would love to work with anyone of any level.
I also have extensive training with the Interpreters Training Program for Sign Language Interpreters. What use is that you may ask! I have knowledge in Sign Language in areas of Medical, Law and Education! I also have training in Sign to Voice! What does that mean for you? That means you can become proficient in ASL in ANY area you desire!

Sign Language is beautiful and I would love to help anyone interested learn my favorite language as well! Come and join my class and I am sure you will not be disappointed.

About Victoria L.

Hello everyone! My name is Victoria and I am looking forward to having you join me in the ASL classroom! I have a degree in the field of Sign Language Interpreting, a job that I love with all my heart. I have worked with Deaf students from elementary to college levels and weekly enhance my skill with my constant contact with the Deaf community. I've had the joy of teaching ASL to students with multiple disabilities from the ages of 3-8 and taught group classes for all ages from the months of June - August in my community.

Teaching has allowed to me to experience a whole new love of Sign Language because I am able to help others not only learn fluent and correct ASL, but teach them about deaf culture! If you are a beginner interested in learning because its on your bucket list, let's get you started right with the true understanding of what American Sign Language is!

If you are an interpreting student or deaf ed student in need of some extra tutoring, or you're going back to school and would like to brush up on those skills, let's sharpen away!

If you are a business owner, employee, or otherwise that has contact with the Deaf community and would like to be able to provide services in a more effective way, your goal is my passion!

No matter what your ASL goals are, learning with me means you are going to reach them in the most productive, efficient, and personal way with a curriculum tailored to YOU.

ASL is a BEAUTIFUL language. Come learn with me, and no matter what your goals are for learning, we can accomplish them successfully together!

Awesome! Victoria is just the teacher I expected her to be. She is patient, which is something that I need. She makes you feel good even when you may have forgotten a sign that you know but can't come up with at the time. Great personality.

She’s a bright, happy person and I couldn’t be more grateful to have chosen her as my instructor. Thanks for helping me make my lifelong wish into a reality.

I had a difficult time deciding on a teacher in the past on here because of early reviews people had after only one lesson. I decided to wait until I took all 10 of my one hour lessons with Victoria to give my insight. It has been a great experience me, and whether you are a little experienced with Deaf culture and sign language, or know absolutely nothing, I know you will benefit from taking classes with Victoria. I have felt my confidence communicating with Deaf people increase and I can feel that I am getting better each week. It has been great being able to go at (what I consider) a fast pace and not having to go at the slower pace of a large class, while still getting the attention to detail and ensuring that I am understanding and following the correct grammar and signs. I recommend that, while you take classes, you practice and put in work outside of that time so you can benefit even more from her lessons. I'm already looking forward to the next 10 lessons and hopefully more!

I take group lessons online. I absolutely love taking lessons with Victoria. She makes class fun and is great with seeing how fast or slow she needs to teach each lesson. She goes out of her way to answer any questions you have and she makes you feel comfortable to ask them! Out of all the interpreters I have tried. She is the best by far! If she can get me involved in group classes. Can you imagine what she could do one on one? Try her out on the free group lessons and you will see what I mean. You wont regret it!

After the first session with Victoria, my daughter was much more confident about her ASL homework assignments and her signing abilities. She often felt that the teacher in her class would be frustrated or annoyed when she asks her to sign more slowly. The teacher would sign too fast for her to understand and she felt lost. Victoria reassured my daughter that she was doing fine and that it is hard for any beginner to learn in a “voice off” class. Victoria was patient, supportive and knowledgeable. We look forward to future sessions!

Victoria really helped my daughter feel more confident and positive about learning ASL after one session. She helped to reinforce signs that aren’t clearly presented in class. My daughter often feels that her teacher gets annoyed when she asks her to sign more slowly and felt embarrassed in class. Victoria is able to identify how to help my daughter and does so in an encouraging and uplifting way! My daughter feels more positive about learning ASL, now. We look forward to future sessions.

Quite a beginner with ASL. I have tried other classes and immersion to start out learning and usually walked away frustrated and kind of embarrassed. I think Victoria is the first teacher that not only accepted it, but encouraged me to stumble along. She taught ASL they way I had hoped to run into. She obviously enjoys teaching. I will continue learning thru her classes.

I have taken a few TakeLessonsLive classes (covering vocabulary relating to holidays, months, animals, and weather) with Victoria and have enjoyed them immensely. I have learned a great deal. In particular, I found it very helpful how she encourages the students to put the vocabulary/topics covered in the lessons into practice at the end of the classes. Having the students communicate with one another, using the vocabulary/topics that have been introduced, is an excellent way to reinforce what has been covered during the lessons.

My daughter is 6 and has been interested in taking sign language class for a while. After her trial session she was very excited to learn. The 1st lesson was good. My daughter wasn’t as focused initially, however, Victoria was patient and was able to get her back on task easily. We can’t wait for the next class!

Victoria is so knowledgeable in sign language, that I look forward to taking class. She is very flexible to what you want to learn and the time frame given. She is also very straight to the point, i already know how to say a handful of phrases in my third lesson. She is a great teacher and I highly recommend her!

Enthusiastic teacher with good energy. She is patient and friendly, I had no knowledge of ASL prior to the lessons, tailors the lessons to your needs. I would recommend her as a teacher.

I had no experience what so ever with ASL. I'm surprised at how much I learned and remembered in just one lesson. She has great patience and is very enthusiastic.

My daughter has been taking lessons Victoria and loving it. She has learned lots of signs and is excited for her lessons. Jackie gets to choose what she wants to learn by signing her schedule and things about her, this makes her excited every time.
I definitely recommend Victoria for any age. Her enthusiastic attitude makes every lesson a delight.

I wanted to learn ASL to help me talk to patients in medical emergencies. I had no previous knowledge of ASL, and by the end of my first lesson, I was already learning practical phrases that I could use during my day. Victoria is GREAT at mixing general knowledge and signs and focusing on what I specifically need to learn for work! She has experience with medical interpreting and it's exactly what I needed.

Want to learn ASL and get a good sensing of how the deaf culture feels and lives each day? Victoria is a great teacher for this! She is very down-to-earth and uses every day examples and tailors her teaching to your particular needs and life. Learning another language is a challenge, but one that she makes fun and easy.
