- Levels Taught:
- Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced
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.

Hello everyone! My name is Victoria and have known sign language for several years now. 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. I also teach piano out of my home studio to my 14 wonderful students! ASL is a BEAUTIFUL language. Come learn with me and I assure you that you will agree and learn to love the language as much as I do!+ Read More
I passed my English Proficiency Test from the state of Texas from the Board of Evaluators for Interpreters (BEI) and was granted permission to move forward with my BEI Performance test. The TEP tests the tester’s understanding, comprehension, and ability to explain even the most complex English words and thoughts.+ Read More
I enjoyed my first lesson very much! Thank you Victoria!
Victoria was so sweet and so welcoming. It was a great first lesson and we look forward to many many more. We highly recommend her
She is doing a fantastic job teaching our kids. She is patient and gives clear instructions. They look forward to the lessons with her!
Victoria did an amazing job. I was nervous about my daughter learning ASL in an online environment, but Victoria put my mind at ease and got my daughter excited about learning the language. Thank you!!!
This teacher is for you as long as you want to learn very serious ASL. Not just signing English words in the English order. ASL is beautiful and this teacher does a wonderful job of teaching it. I am paying for her lessons and its worth it.
Very serious about the language, its great!
Victoria is a great instructor. I work in the dental field and wanted to sign with patients. Victoria was able to focus our lessons on information I needed while also teaching basic ASL. Strongly recommend.
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.+ Read More
So excited to have started sessions! :)
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!+ Read More
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!+ Read More
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.
Fantastic instructor, patient and enthusiastic about sharing the ASL language. Absolutely enjoy working with her.
Shes awesome !!
Very good at catering the lesson to the student! I felt engaged yet challenged the whole time. Extremely thorough!
Thank you for being so patient with her!
I have taken two lessons with Victoria so far. My ASL skills have already improved and I am super satisfied with my lessons and would recommend this instructor to anyone!
GREAT. I really like the examples and story's. Great teaching
She is a wonderful teacher! She explains things clearly and is always smiling !
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.+ Read More
Victoria is an amazing teacher! She is super helpful and I definitely recommend her. If you want to learn sign language, she is the person to do it with.
I am learning so many practical ASL signs. She is the best ASL teacher I have ever had!
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.+ Read More
