I am an Educational Interpreter for the deaf for 3 school districts in the peninsula. I work one on one with deaf students in the mainstream class setting Monday-Friday.
I have been doing this for 6 years as well as other free lance interpreting work including various meetings and performances. ASL is a beautiful language I fell in love with at 14 years old. I was lucky enough to have a high school that offered classes and I never looked back. After volunteering for a year I was hired on fu...
Leianne was able to quickly assess my son's ASL knowledge and jump in to use the curriculum he needs to cover for class credit. He was very comfortable with her and felt like he learned a lot in his first lesson.

My daughter really enjoyed her lesson with Leianne. She was nervous about meeting a new tutor, but she immediately felt comfortable with her as soon as class started. Leianne paced things well and focused both on signing and reading someone else's signs.

Leianne arrived on time and fully prepared. She was patient and interested in know just what my daughter needs to learn. Her style was so engaging that my other child became interested and now they are both learning ASL!

Leianne was great, she made my son feel very comfortable in her teaching skills. She makes the learning process of signing fun and relaxed. She was on time for all of his appointments, a very nice experience for all of us.

Leianne is teaching our 5 year old son ASL. She is very patient with him but also knows how to keep him focused. She is very professional, easy to work with and reviews each session with us to keep us informed of our son's progress. We are very glad to have found her.

Leianne arrived on time, enthusiastic, and very well prepared. She met with my son for the first time last week to help him with an ASL class he is taking at his high school. They went over the syllabus, what he already knew and where he thinks he needs additional assistance. They spent 1 hour together and as I listened in from the other room I was amazed at how engaged and quickly he learned from her. It was very apparent that Leianne has a passion for ASL, as well as wealth of knowledge and talent for it.
My son came away from that first session feeling confident and excited for his next session. When your child is struggling in a subject, you know how important it is for them to feel some confidence!
It is our intention to use Leianne over and over again. She has my highest recommendation!

My daughter is excited about learning with Leianne and has already proudly mastered a few basic signs! She looks forward to her time with Leianne and is excited for her future lessons.

My 13 year old daughter is interested to learn American Sign Language, but unfortunately it is not taught at her school, and we couldn't find a class during the summer that would take kids her age. We decided to have someone come by the house and give her a few introductory lessons. Leianne arrived on time, came prepared with material, and was very pleasant and upbeat. My daughter learned a lot and really enjoyed herself. I would recommend Leianne to others looking to learn sign language.
