Hi, my name is Alan. I am a college graduate who is deaf and fluent in ASL, but can also speak and lipread well. I am presently volunteering to teach a sign language class to a group of hearing students in a local public library on Tuesday evenings. I have been teaching/tutoring ASL privately for over 8 years. I would love to help you learn ASL and interact with deaf people using the expressive and receptive skills that I have mastered throughout my life. I am a very patient teacher who would like to see you become successful in conversing in ASL. I am available to provide you with my tutoring service in the mornings, afternoons or evenings during the week. Please contact me if you are interested

I’m the only Deaf person in my family. I love photography, drawing sketch, and I love teaching American Sign Language (ASL).

I have experience teaching at American Sign Language (ASL) Camp at Mill Neck Manor School for the Deaf. I taught students from a range of grades, typically students from Elementary to Junior High. I constantly look for ways to give back to the Deaf community, such as mentoring and giving the advice to serve them best.

I use various tools such as flashcards that contain words, pictures, and vocabulary in order to build language skills. I will use educational videos that explain topics such as Deaf Culture. I will also use storytelling videos ana will adapt to a range of ages. I will provide American Sign Language (ASL) levels to match each age group.

I will have books for your first trial lesson and come and see for yourself! If you have any additional questions, feel free to contact me.

I look forward to meeting you!

Many students find learning a language hard or boring. Sign language is a very expressive and beautiful language. Some teachers are boring but I get creative and make learning fun for people that want to lean ASL

About Nicole

To my future students welcome!! I can't wait to get to know you! My name is Nicole, ASL is my favorite language because it's very expressive. I am hard of hearing and have a speech impediment which makes sign language easier for me to use. Fun fact #1 I was inspired to learn ASL from my deaf cous

Just did the free intro class with you and really enjoyed it! You were patient and repeated things slowly when we needed it. My son's review: "I loved it and I learned a lot!"
My almost 10yr old son took it with me as he's been wanting to learn sign language to help him communicate. He's ADHD and gets frustrated super fast and likes to communicate non verbally when he's mad so we've been looking to learning "officially". We learned today the colors of the rainbow along with his favorite color gold, numbers and letters. We hope to take a paid class soon when we have discretionary funds :)

Well done, Nicole. You truly care about us students.
Question: I was unable to question or comment while you were teaching. Please say how! /thanks

What are the Different Types of Sign Languages?

Many people are surprised or even shocked to learn that American Sign Language is not universal. However, when you think about how many spoken languages there are across the globe, it makes sense that sign language would be the same. After all, American Sign language is its own language with its own grammar, idioms, and everything else needed to be a language completely separate from English. Different types of sign language are developed in different regions around the globe, just like spok …
