Thus far my experience has been very rewarding, and more than I could have hoped for in a tutor. I have to remember to face her during conversations, and phone calls are out, but as we exchange our first languages, her ASL and mine spoken, the learning experience is unique and enhanced for me. I highly recommend her for grammar and ASL. Even if you don't need both, you'll be glad you did. Update: Listening and hearing factor in to all forms of communication, written, verbal and ASL.

Monica is a fun, knowledgeable and engaging ASL instructor! In my first lesson, we practiced signing simple sentences in ASL and identified language targets we will practice in future lessons. Monica is patient and very encouraging! Her lessons are also personalized based on the student's specific needs. I look forward to continuing to learn from her and improving my ASL!
We had previously had several months of ASL classes, but the schedule no longer worked for us. Laurie was able to pick right up where our classes left off. She has worked with us to customize the lessons to build on what we already learned without starting over. Its obvious that she prepares ahead of time for each lesson, as she comes with a lesson plan and worksheets for each day. We look forward to continuing ASL lessons with her and have already recommended her to other family members.
