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.

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!
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.Show More
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!Show More
I listen to voice through a Bluetooth device. Victoria speaks very clearly and it is easy for me to understand her.
I love how patient she is and thorough!
Teaches well, kept my sons attention the entire time.
Victoria's voice is very clear and easy to understand with my Bluetooth hearing aid.
Victoria's knowledge, professionalism and fun lessons made it very easy for me to understand vocabulary, grammar and ASL rules. She is a great instructor!!! Thank you, Victoria!!!!
Always accommodating, nice, and easy to work with!
My 7 year old has been taking ASL lessons from Victoria for months now and I am ecstatic to say that thanks to her knowledge, patience, and instruction, my son is growing more and more confident in his ASL abilities!! We would highly recommend Victoria as an ASL instructor!Show More
Victoria did a fantastic job in our first class together of meeting me where I was at. We reviewed numbers 1-29 and she was very patient with me as I was learning.
It was a great lesson. Learning the alphabet and how to finger spell was very challenging but rewarding. Thank you, Victoria!
Best teacher ever!!! very patient and willing to work with you! Thanks for making my class a great one each time!!!!
Very friendly and energetic. Very good at comprehending our needs.
Victoria is a great teacher.
Victoria is absolutely wonderful. I could not have asked for a better instructor.
Thank you!!! Just the first day of class alone has really boosted up my confidence!
Victoria is very kind and patient. Her class is a bright spot in my week.

Victoria is amazing! I'd recommend her to anyone!
My very first takelessons class and I felt at comfortable and encouraged. Thank You Victoria!
Very patient and nice!
I had a great time learning ASL with Veronica. I'm sure she can tell anybody I made significant improvement. Will miss her private classes but will continue taking live classes whenever I can. It's been a pleasure, Victoria. Gracias!
I loved today's class a lot because I got to sign even more than before and learned new signs. Will miss Ms. Victoria's private lessons. I only have one more left but will continue taking more.
Absolutely love lessons with Victoria, not only an amazing teacher but very accommodating to fit the lesson to your needs specifically!
She gives background, not just signing. Shes so adorable and informative.
Though it was a bit challenging today because I had to sign more, I truly enjoyed the challenge. I had to sign questions and answers. Gracias Victoria.
Victoria is wonderful!! She is patient and kind. She always explains everything in an easy to understand manner and ensures that I fully understand all concepts. I would recommend her to anyone.
She is so fluent! She also tailors the leason to you.
victoria teaches incredibly helpful asl classes, and really is encouraging and helpful when it comes to teaching. i love the lessons with her, and i would recommend her to anyone who would like to learn the language
She really made the classes fun and enjoyable while learning. She made sure to include all students in each class or respect the wish of those to remain silent. I'm not fluent yet but she made sure I understood what was said. Her practice sign class was my favorite.Show More
This was my first lesson and it was excellent. Victoria is very clear and she paces her instruction where you can learn and practice along with her and the other students. I highly recommend her for classes.
Victoria has taught me so much. She is very patient and helpful. I also appreciate the professional way that she conducts the lessons.
Victoria is amazing!!! She is patient and keeps it fun. I look forward to her classes. I feel like I'm learning to sign in real life situations and have even tested myself with a coworker who uses ASL. I will continue to buy classes with her to keep learning.Show More
We did a lot of signing today: learned new vocabulary, Translated sentences to ASL, translated sentences and questions from ASL to English, asked and answered questions from ASL to English and vice versa. Love working with Victoria and highly recommend her for private lessons, too.Show More
This was my very first class, and I'm glad I chose Victoria. She had fun with it and so did I! THANK YOU
Great teacher, wonderful style.
She was very helpful, and energetic, I will try to join another class.
I thought it was a great class. Streaming was really good and Viktoria was an excellent teacher and had a lot of patience.
I finished u the lesson feeling excited and thrilled that I could remember the stuff we worked on!
Victoria is great! I am learning ASL for a scene I need to do and after day 1 I'm already feeling confident that I can achieve this and convey the character correctly!
I had a wonderful time learning ASL one-on-one with Victoria G. I know I will see improvement after a few lessons. Highly recommend Ms. Victoria.
Victoria is a great teacher!
Victoria is amazing! She was very kind and explained every thing in a very easy to understand way. She has a wealth of knowledge that she is more than willing to share.
Absolutely loved Victoria’s class! She was very engaging and continuously encouraging throughout. Will be booking many of her classes to come!
Great teacher to start me out for ASL. Very patient and will repeat things as needed! Very nice!
I love that Victoria makes the class fun and varied but motivates and encourages students to participate; she’s one of the best ASL teachers I’ve taken classes from.
I love learning from Victoria because she is a wonderful ASL teacher: Maybe I should have typed: You are a wonderful teacher, Victoria G; love learning from you, and you are one of my favorite ASL teachers.
This was my first time doing an online ASL class. Your ability to cater to those on video as well as those who were view only was very well done. I enjoyed your teaching style very much and look forward to taking your classes again!
I love your ASL classes! You are very sweet and very patient with us. Especially with my lightning situation.
A really great first lesson. A teenager can be challenging and it was a very good experience. She does a great job. Here pricing is good too.
Highly recommend Victoria!
Thank you Victoria for all you patience while teaching my daughter. You make it fun and enjoyable. I can't wait to see the progress she will make. From my daughter "It was fun and it was wonderful."
I really enjoyed my time with her. She helped me to learn by mostly signing what she was saying while she was teaching us. We also got to participate and engage with one another. I really like her style of teaching. I would highly recommend taking her classes!Show 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!Show More
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!Show More
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.Show More
She is an awesome teacher and teaches me food related words!!
My daughter was so nervous to start this class but her teacher made it so easy for her to understand and she is so happy to continue more classes. Thumbs up! 👍
This was my first class . I loved it
Mistakenly took an intermediate/advanced class with absolutely zero knowledge of ASL. I was very discouraged, but Victoria was so kind and welcoming that I decided to give it a shot. Absolutely glad that I stayed in the online class! It was a very entertaining experience and in just 45 minutes, I already learned a couple signs! Thanks, Victoria!Show More
she is a great teacher!!!
Victoria is a great teacher!!!!!!
Victoria is an amazing teacher! She has taught me so much in our lessons, and makes 45 minutes fly by. I have made so much progress. I would definitely recommend her.
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.Show More
Very helpful! Very easy to understand. She is excellent. I felt very comfortable.
Victoria was so kind! She repeats the signs and gives helpful hints/tips for remembering. First class and she made me feel so comfortable. She's very encouraging and has such a positive demeanor! Can not wait to join her in class again!
She breaks the information down into small groups and we review the information often during the class period so we have a better chance of remembering it.
Very helpful and fun!
Patient and knowledgeable
victoria. is great
Victoria is so great! She is very friendly and helped establish quickly what level we should be starting at. Her methods had me feeling confident by the end of the first lesson.
Victoria was great. Super patient with my 7 year old.
She is an amazing teacher totally recomend her so nice and encoraging!!!
Amazing work! Could never have a better instructor than Victoria! 50million stars for her!!!
Ms. Victoria - commonly known as "the best teacher" - is so patient and welcoming. She assures a welcoming environment to where no one feels awkward. If this is your first time on TakeLessons, Ms. Victoria is the perfect instructor to make you feel less nervous.Show More
Victoria is an enthusiastic and fun teacher, and I love how interactive she makes group classes. You really get a chance to test your skills when you practice signing with each other. Excellent!
Victoria is one of the best ASL instructors you can find anywhere online. You can tell she loves ASL is extremely dedicated to her lesson plan and making sure every student accomplishes their individual goals. Everyone will have a great experience working with her.Show 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.Show 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!Show 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!Show 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.Show 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.Show More
Victoria was very patient and did an awesome job of explaining the signs.
She was great with my antsy 4 year old. We wil definitely be taking more classes with Victoria
very good teacher, very interesting information to learn :)
It was so much fun. My computer wasn't working and she made it work on my phone. She goes at your speed and comes up with fun ideas.
I had an amazing first lesson with Victoria. She is a great teacher.
Very knowledgeable! Fun/energetic personality, great work ethic. Perfect for intermediate to advanced ASL level individuals. I can’t wait to continue learning with Victoria!!
You are a great teacher! Thank you for teaching me sign language.
Victoria is a very good teacher. I love her class!!!
Great first lesson! Looking forward to the next one!
I was having issues with my computer, and she was awesome in working around them! I had no sound on my computer, but she worked with me anyway! She's a great teacher.
I've been taking ASL lessons from Victoria for a few months now, and I am extremely grateful for her kindness, patience, and sense of humor! She is extremely down to earth and is a wonderful teacher! I have learned so much in such a short time! 10/10 would recommend!Show More
