Hello! My name is Tara and I have been teaching American Sign Language for over 15 years. I have chosen to offer my classes to the general community, rather than through a college or university, because a large percentage of people who express an interest in learning sign language are not degree seeking. My personal experience as an individual with a hearing loss makes me more aware of the needs of the community and of the language itself. Sign language completely changed my life and opened up a world of deep and meaningful connections. It is my greatest desire to share this beautiful language with others.
