Success stories

Real stories from real people

Since 2005, Wyzant has provided a way for people to learn any subject in a way that works for them.

Aaron F.

19 lessons

He is very approachable, creates an atmosphere for learning, and flexible with meeting times if I have to rearrange my schedule. He has shown a genuine interest in sign language as a whole as well as my goals behind learning it. I would encourage anyone who is interested in learning sign language to just contact Matt for a meet and greet (he and I met at a local Starbucks for our meet/greet) and go from there.
Julie E.

2 lessons

We decided to have someone come by the house and give her a few introductory lessons. Leianne arrived on time, came prepared with material, and was very pleasant and upbeat. My daughter learned a lot and really enjoyed herself. I would recommend Leianne to others looking to learn sign language.
Michelle C.

2 lessons

My daughter is shy and sometimes withdrawn. Autumn has done an amazing job pulling her out of her shell. My daughter said after the first lesson that truly enjoyed the session with her. She is very patient, and kind. She brings a positive attitude and a smiling face. Such a great example for my daughter. She helps relate each lesson to my daughter and what her likes and dislikes are. We will continue to use Autumn for all of our future sign language needs!
