What you'll do

Back to school and back to work with ASL in the mix! Have you always wondered how to communicate with your Deaf peers and coworkers? Have you been saying you've wanted to learn sign language for years, but never had the resources to get started? Have you taken ASL before and now your knowledge of the language is a distant memory? THIS IS THE COURSE FOR YOU! Highly recommended that you join a group instead of a solo class for maximum effect!

Learn American Sign Language catered to fit your workplace, accessibility and inclusion departments, and more! To become an ally to the deaf community is a way to support both the hearing loss and autistic communities, as well as be a part of the 3rd fastest growing language and an ever-growing population of those that deal with hearing loss. Enjoy a heartfelt, enlightening way of communication that will change your perspective moving forward of how to be more inclusive of marginalized communities!

This is a safe environment for young adults, children, families, businesses, team building, and non-profits ages 8-100 to get an authentic experience from a Deaf professional.

Whether it's for a homeschooled course with a curriculum established, independent or group sessions, or just for fun, we have something for everybody! Perfect for beginners and advanced users of sign language!*

As a Black man with a profound hearing loss, exposure to life in a world that is not accommodating most times, but also denied access to my own community until my skills were deemed up to par, has definitely broadened my perspective in providing a deeper understanding of how to connect with people. I have taught workshops, at camps, performed, interpreted and volunteered with hearing and deaf youths of all ages, and now I am able to make a learning experience enjoyable regardless of age yet still provide enough structure and discipline to ensure proper tutelage.

We had our class with Martise and it was amazing! Really wholesome and funny, and now we know the ASL alphabet and some cool new words. Truly felt a bit better about the world after this experience, and excited to learn more about this form of communication.

We had such a wonderful time during this introductory sign language class! Martise has such a passion for teaching - you can tell he genuinely enjoyed teaching complete newbies like us the alphabet and some love-centric signs. He made it so easy to learn, and he did such a nice job of personalizing the class to us. I can’t recommend this experience enough! Sign up for it!

This was an amazing experience. Matt was very personable and has a fantastic personality. Matt catered to our group (this was booked for a work event) and allowed us to learn some useful phrases in a fun way. We learned a lot and had a great time- we had a small group so he was able to interact with us individually. Thank you Matt for such a great experience - you are amazing!

This was the most entertaining and informative experience I have done. I learned so much about deaf culture and also quite a bit of sign language. Did this privately as a date, and it was definitely a GREAT experience.

Matt and Martise were fantastic. Such a fun, engaging and thoughtful experience. My team connected, learned, laughed and we have some things we will incorporate in our next virtual meetings.
