WHAT PEOPLE SAY

Mary J. Bacheller

Amy is an excellent teacher for beginners in BSL and for further classes as well. She is truly a delight... As a teacher myself ...i thoroughly enjoyed her.  Thank you

Nelly Hencker 

Highly recommend the International Sign Language class with Dr. Robert Gavrilescu, PhD, to anyone interested in learning this beautiful language. It is an enriching experience that not only expands your communication skills but also broadens your understanding of different cultures and communities. With a great teacher and an enjoyable learning environment, you'll find yourself eagerly looking forward to each class.

Craig Fogel

My BSL class with Amy was a great introduction to BSL.  I'm fluent in American Sign Language, but have never attempted to learn a new signed language before.  The format of the class was relaxed and comfortably paced.  We covered a good amount of vocabulary in the short 9 hours and had a decent amount of time to practice what we were learning.
