I am Deaf and use American Sign Language as my primary means of communication. Keep in mind, when learning ASL it is culturally important to learn from Deaf instructors. I currently volunteer as a teacher's assistant at my college's ASL beginner and intermediate classes. My teaching style emphasizes Deaf Culture and being accessible to all.

I chose Cressilia to further my child's ASL education when our school system dropped the course. The school has since brought ASL back to school, but Cressilia was very patient and was a great teacher. Thank you Cressilia!

I teach and tutor in American Sign Language from the perspective of one who came into ASL and the Deaf community without a thought of being a professional in a related field. Still, I did become a professional interpreter, teacher, tutor, mentor and have been a service-provider, advocate and friend with many Deaf since 1984.

I want my students to learn that fear and anxiety in undertaking a new adventure are usually of our own making, and that learning about other cultures and languages by association with native users is so valuable.

Therefore, my classes are highly interactive and immersive; students will be required often to learn voice-off, role-play sign language / deaf experience situations, complete tasks between classes, and engage fully. Focus will be on conversational quality, grammatical structures, situational encounters, expressive and receptive language skills.

I will provide curriculum and, as needed, written information and videos used.

About Allison

My journey with ASL began at age 6 – from shy little friend to a Professional interpreter, teacher, tutor, mentor, workshop trainer, evaluator, agency owner, advocate, and friend. I began interpreting in 1984 and soon thereafter received my degree in Public Service - Interpreting / ASL; and thus ha

I had some previous ASL lessons and exposure. However doing the class with Allison did help to polish my language skill and conversation skills. The class that I participated in was a mix of true beginners and some intermediate users. She was still able to make class fun and even challenging for me with the mix of learners.

She is fun and doesn't make learning overly serious. But you will be very equipped to hold a conversation with deaf friends and family.
Shannon
Allison's teaching method is fun and engaging. I have witnessed her teach ASL to students of all ages and backgrounds, and I'm convinced she can teach ASL to just about anyone!

Harold is an amazing tutor! I have been working with him once a week and my signing has improved so much. He’s very patient and kind in his approach. Along with learning ASL I’ve also been able to learn about Deaf culture. I look forward to our lesson every week! I highly recommend Harold as an American Sign Language tutor.

I am very organized, detail oriented and I personalize my teaching approach with each student depending on their goals and different angles of interest in utilizing the language. I enjoy finding creative ways to engage further understanding and fluency including interpretation of music, using games, such as Guess Who, Charades, and trivial pursuit-beneficial and enjoyed by all ages and levels. Additionally, there are many other lesson plans I have created myself or use of textbooks and workbooks along with unique assignments that I constantly use outside of and in addition to the traditional vocabulary lessons, sentence structure/grammar and syntax lessons and deaf culture education.

I am looking forward to receiving any questions concerning myself, my experience, learning about your needs for a tutor and scheduling. Please feel free to reach out to me at anytime.
