I highly recommend working with Leah. I had the pleasure to be taught by her (1:1), and the experience was amazing. Leah’s style in teaching ASL is practical, approachable and specific to your needs and learning style. She also makes it fun!

I really enjoyed Leah Riddell’s class. What I found the most helpful was being in a safe space, able to ask questions, and also learning the intricacies of ASL that, as a hearing person, is not really explained to me. I can better understand the language and communicate more effectively with my Deaf colleagues. I understood the structures of ASL and I’m able to further my knowledge on my own and grow my vocabulary. I would absolutely recommend this class.
