Hi Students,

My name is Theresa, and I am a deaf sign language teacher. I am also a former elementary and middle school teacher to deaf and hard of hearing students. I am the Founder and Director of "SIGNING Basics" an agency that specializes in teaching private and group sign language lessons. In addition, I have a Masters Degree in Leadership, and I am an experienced Professor of Deaf Studies at the college level.

I love teaching ASL, and I enjoy watching my students have an "Aha" moment when they finally get the hang of it. Learning ASL is not as difficult as it seems sometimes, the most difficult part of learning ASL is in remembering that ASL is not English but rather conceptual and visual. I travel to the following cities: Boston MA, Springfield MA, New York City, Washington DC and Baltimore MD.

I am a deaf sign language teacher and former teacher of the deaf and hard of hearing. I am currently the Founder and Director of an agency that specializes in teaching American Sign Language. In addition, I hold a Masters Degree in Leadership, and I am an experienced Professor of Deaf Studies at the college level. I coach every age and ability level. From beginning ABC’s to intense tutoring for the more advanced signer. Together with the student, I create a teaching plan that is consistent with their current signing level. This translates into specialized attention for fast and fun results. Each session includes: Direct, one on one teaching time, handouts, and homework assignments that lead to the introduction of the next lesson. Books are sold separately. In addition to these lessons, I offer specialized classes and workshops for religious interpreters.

I'm learning a lot

This was my 3rd lesson and I am starting to get the hang of ASL. Theresa's demeanor is perfectly suited as a tutor. She puts me at ease with a brand new subject.

Joseph, 3 lessons with Theresa

Extremely professional, courteous, and a wonderful teacher.

I highly recommend Theresa K as a teacher. Ms K is an exceptional teacher. Ms. K has built my confidence in learning sign language and I will surely return as soon as I can financially.
