Serfiry Vicente’s Introduction Video

"Serfiry is an excellent instructor. He is very patient and finds a way to be interactive with you. He can also be very funny. I enjoyed his class and look forward to the next. Thank you." - Kathy Daniels

"Serfiry is a an amazing teacher! He is so patient and helpful, and very very funny! I am learning so much, and his wonderful style of teaching makes it very easy and memorable. I’ve now had 2 lessons with him and plan on booking multiple times a week. Thank you so much Serfiry for your help. You are INCREDIBLE! :)" - Tarahsee

"Serfiry was VERY fun, patient and made me feel comfortable! It has been a LONG time since I tried to converse using ASL…but he somehow made sense of my signs (HA!) and we had a great conversation. I will be scheduling more interactions with him…such a great way to practice! Thank you, Serfiry!" - clowe2154

"Serfiry is patient and is very helpful and fun." - Laura Axelsen

"Serfiry is an excellent tutor. His signing is very clear, he’s interesting and engaging. He’s Deaf and not oral which is a great way to learn. He doesn’t resort to typing or other communication, he gestures until I understand. As a beginner or advanced, I believe the only way to fully learn and be comfortable with a language is to dive in and immerse yourself in it." - Nita

Diane Caporale's Introduction Video

"Diane is the BEST!! Although I had some background in sign language, she helped me take it to the next level, to relax and continue to enjoy the deaf community. She’s straightforward, but tempered with patience, love and humor!! I HIGHLY recommend her, doesn’t matter what your sign language skill is, she will help you! We had 2 sessions per week for 2 months and it was wonderful. I struggled with facial expressions and she truly helped me “let go and relax”. I can’ say enough about her. Awesome job!!" - Demetrius Longmire

"I was unable to find a deaf event near me, so I decided to hire an ASL tutor. Diane Caporale was AMAZING. She is so inspiring and has such a joy in teaching ASL. She made me feel so comfortable and I was able to learn a lot just from thirty minutes. Just from this session I feel as if I know more, and I know the areas of signing I need to work on, such as numbers and more vocabulary such as places and people. I will definitely be doing another one of these sessions to help master my ASL, so when I do talk with a deaf person, I will be able to have a better conversation with them." - Hannah T.

Savannah Diaz’s Introduction Video

"Savannah has been helping teach my 14 year old daughter the basics in ASL and it has been a very positive and helpful experience in every way. Savannah has been a great teacher! She is very supportive, positive, and focused throughout every tutoring session. She would clearly be great at teaching very advanced ASL technique as well for she really has command of the language and is grounded in her knowledge. We initially questioned the quality of what “Start ASL” had to offer as it can sometimes be hard to trust online recourses. All of our concerns were proven wrong as it has been a very professional and positive experience throughout. We are so grateful to have found Savannah and would recommend her to anyone. Thank you Savannah! What a bright star!" - Jasmine Gerber

Sally Ann Zwicker's Introduction Video

"During my tutoring sessions with Sally I gained much knowledge from her expertise. She was also very friendly and flexible. If I had specific questions about things I needed to sign to my deaf son or didn’t understand, she would take the time to explain it thoroughly! In my opinion……she is a GREAT tutor!!! :)" - Jane Szczepaniak

"I earned my ASL certificate a few years ago and have since been eager to find someone to sign with. Unsuccessful, I recently started looking for tutors when I luckily stumbled upon StartASL. Admittedly, I was initially intimidated by Sally’s impressive credentials because I am extremely rusty in my signing abilities. Still, I booked an appointment with her a few months ago and am SO HAPPY I did. She is wonderfully friendly, remarkably professional, and incredibly knowledgable. Because of her, I feel more confident in my signing skills, and I have found a new friend. I would absolutely highly recommend Sally to anyone interested in learning ASL, practicing ASL, or simply eager to sign with a magnificent human being!!" - Brenda Times
