I've been teaching American Sign Language for 5 years, and signing myself for 18 years, and my students have gone on to develop a love for ASL, Deaf people, and Deaf culture. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to carry on a simple conversation in the language, and as time goes on you'll be able to feel totally at ease with Deaf people. I have great online tools you can use for free to practice between lessons, and I'm flexible with any other resources we use. I can't wait to meet you!

I received my BA in Music with a certification to teach at Lubbock Christian University in 1998. Later I attended the Interpreter Certification program at Burl

Our daughter absolutely loved Carla! She was encouraging, an excellent teacher, fun, positive and more! She matched our daughter's pace. She learned so much from her and though our daughter discontinued learning ASL because she began college, she hopes to connect with Carla again someday to continue learning ASL. What a great experience! Thank you Carla!
Pamela W.
Carla took the time to call me when I registered to talk about what I was looking for in the lesson. She came prepared to the lesson and is very knowledgeable. She made it comfortable and easy to learn!

Carla is awesome and helped our daughter improve her ASL skills and confidence!

Taught American Sign Language (ASL) full-time and part-time (nights) for 39 years, just recently retired from full-time teaching. I have primarily used Signing Naturally (SN) workbooks, all levels. I have also used Learning American Sign Language (LASL).
Currently, I am teaching Deaf Culture as an online course at San Diego Mesa College.
I have been using ASL since I was 4 years old and I have attended California School for the Deaf, Berkeley (Fremont) and Riverside. I have received valuable experience from Deaf peers of Deaf parents, Deaf adults and Deaf leaders. In this sense, I am a native user of ASL and ASL Fingerspelled Signs.
Graduated from Gallaudet College (University) in Washington, D.C. with a B.S. in Business Administration. I received two Masters degrees from California State University, Northridge, one in Deaf Education and the other in Educational Administration. I received my Doctoral degree in Educational Leadership from University of Southern California ...

I was nervous about starting asl classes again because it has been a while but Bill made our lesson so fun, it went by quickly! He clearly has experience teaching because he came prepared with powerpoint presentations and notes - it was structured but well-paced. I am looking forward to taking more lessons with Bill : )

I really liked it and will be signing up for more with him.

He is so patient and kind. I had a great first experience and look forward to future lessons. Thank you William!

I learned ASL in high school as a second language. My college did not offer ASL classes, therefore, I taught others in my university's ASL club. I mentored students there to teach them vocabulary and engage in basic conversations. Aside from formal lessons, I also find it beneficial for my student's to use ASL to transcribe personal songs of theirs! This is the best way to combine vocabulary and grammar for ASL. I can share my Youtube page where I post my personal transcriptions of ASL songs for students if they want examples or additional practice interpreting.

All science classes listed on my profile are offered in ASL. This is not a class focused on teaching ASL at the beginner level. This class focuses on science for those whose preference is ASL rather than English.

I am hard-of-hearing and use ASL.

Ms. Marie is methodical, explains the concepts well, and gives great study techniques. I also found it beneficial that during our session, she asked about my specific learning styles.

"Working with Carla has been incredible! I had a minimal amount of ASL experience before starting lessons and Carla has helped me learn so much in such a short amount of time. She's wonderful at helping you to incorporate what she's teaching into conversations so you can practice using and understanding signs.

I was able to use my short 4 weeks of private lessons on a recent trip where I was able to have a lovely conversation with a member of the deaf community - thanks to Carla.

I look forward to continuing on and developing a much deeper understanding of ASL!"

What is Black ASL?

Most people living in the United States are likely familiar with American Sign Language (ASL); even if they don’t know any signs, they know it exists. Even less people realize that ASL is not universal, but unique to the US and parts of Canada. Therefore, it’s probable that very few people living in the US realize that ASL has variations. Just as with spoken languages, which have various dialects and accents, there are also variations within ASL, and age, race, location, socio-economic c …
