Being born to deaf parents, my first language is American Sign Language. I am a CODA (child of deaf adult). My primary language is English and an expert ASL signer. By nature, Im apart of the Deaf/HH community and look to grow in advocating. I would like to reach hearing parents with deaf children or even hearing children with deaf parents by helping them advance in using their sign language skills proficiently.
I’m also interested in working with students whom are interested in ASL as a second language or even a hobby. Taking ASL in high school and need tutoring? I can assist in learning the visual and gestural communication of the signing.

***each ASL session is for up to two individuals. 2 or more pls ask about family/ goup rates.
** ASL Sessions will begin the following week on Monday after enrollment.

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

Harold is an amazing tutor! I have been working with him once a week and my signing has improved so much. He’s very patient and kind in his approach.

Online American Sign Language Teacher

I teach and tutor in American Sign Language from the perspective of one who came into ASL and the Deaf community without a thought of being a professional in a related field. Still, I did become a professional interpreter, teacher, tutor, mentor and have been a service-provider, advocate and friend with many Deaf since 1984.

I want my students to learn that fear and anxiety in undertaking a new adventure are usually of our own making, and that learning about other cultures and languages by association with native users is so valuable.

Therefore, my classes are highly interactive and immersive; students will be required often to learn voice-off, role-play sign language / deaf experience situations, complete tasks between classes, and engage fully. Focus will be on conversational quality, grammatical structures, situational encounters, expressive and receptive language skills.

I will provide curriculum and, as needed, written information and videos used.

About Allison

My journey with ASL began at age 6 – from shy little friend to a Professional interpreter, teacher, tutor, mentor, workshop trainer, evaluator, agency owner, advocate, and friend. I began interpreting in 1984 and soon thereafter received my degree in Public Service - Interpreting / ASL; and thus ha

Alison is so easy to get along with and she explains things very well. Very organized. Her teaching skills and years of experience, are a plus that enables her to teach all different types and levels of students of all nationalities.
Ella D.
Allison is phenomenal! I was so nervous about signing up for lessons--afraid that I'd be wasting my money. I sent a few emails to a few instructors and their responses left me uncertain of their abilities. When I read Allison's profile, I was immediately impressed with her attention to detail. I was hoping she'd be a perfect match for me, since I am a detail-oriented person as well, and sent her an email. Her response confirmed that she was a perfect match for me! She emailed me with a recommended course to help me as an interpreter (detailed, of course) and I immediately signed up! She is incredibly knowledgeable of ASL interpreting. Not only does she have an extensive background in interpreting, but she is involved in Deaf ministry. I am so thankful that she was able to bless me with so much advice and instruction for my own ministry! I cannot thank her enough! I would highly recommend her for any and all of your interpreting needs!
Nathan
I had some previous ASL lessons and exposure. However doing the class with Allison did help to polish my language skill and conversation skills. The class that I participated in was a mix of true beginners and some intermediate users. She was still able to make class fun and even challenging for me with the mix of learners.

She is fun and doesn't make learning overly serious. But you will be very equipped to hold a conversation with deaf friends and family.

"I am so happy that I chose Cathy, to learn from. She teaches ASL in a fun and informative environment. From the history of the language, to the reason a sign looks the way it does, to “hands-on” activities - you will learn and retain the information. Cathy prepares her students to interact in the deaf community, and encourages us to do so. I am quickly learning the language, meeting wonderful people (who I otherwise never would have met) and I’m growing more confident in ASL all the time. Thanks Cathy!"
