About

I love to see progress and be a major part of that progress.

I've been signing for about 4 years now and it continues to be a learning experience for me, one that I enjoy. I love to help out deaf, hard of hearing or hearing people become able to community via ASL. Like all things it takes time and dedication to become fluent but by having me as your instructor you're one step closer to becoming better equipped to hold a conversation in ASL and slowly but surely grasp ASL. I've graduated from El camino College through their interpreter training program and would love to share what I've learned along the way.

My daughter really enjoyed having classes with Manny. She is only 11 years old but she was interested in taking sign language classes because she is hoping one day being a teacher and help kids.

Frequently asked questions

I try to be as transparent as possible I find that most people think it's easy when it is anything but so I let them know that and what I think it takes to get to the goal they want whether it's learning basic signs or becoming fluent it all takes time, dedication and work like all things. I try to provide resources that are free to use whether with me or without to reach whatever level desired to my knowledge I'm not focused on profit rather passing on the knowledge gifted to me by my teachers as they have requested of me.

I have a certificate of completion for a interpreting training program which is equivalent to an AA from El Camino community College which geared me to become a freelance interpreter for American Sign Language which I attained in 2019. I have worked many jobs with this degree in many fields and scenarios as well as volunteered and continue to learn due to new signs emerging or new lessons to be learned myself.

I don't accept anything less than 20$ per session or hour. I unfortunately have to have payment upfront due to people not paying.

I always found myself teaching people in the hearing community becaue most people are interested in learning atleast a sign or two so I decided to try it on the side.

I have worked with students as young as 8 and as old as 60.

I like to volunteer for my community and so one event that I can relate to my skill as an interpreter is when I had the chance to work the inauguration of Karen Bass for Mayor recently and was able to help deaf or hard of hearing guest maneuver around Microsoft theater in LA live.

I would say get to know the person make sure they are qualified or have a certification.

They should be empathetic of the teachers needs as well we are both here to gain an experience together through sign language and want the same thing which is to learn and progress. In the end equal communication access is what is gained.
