Private American Sign Language Teacher

I have tutored American Sign Language (ASL) during my time as a member of Kappa Sigma Fraternity at the Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT) and as a federal employee.

With my Deaf experience and experience with tutoring ASL, I can make tutees feel comfortable with talking in ASL and talking with Deaf people, Hard-of-Hearing people, and Deafblind people.

As for a book, I recommend “Basic Course in American Sign Language” authored by Tom Humphries.

Thomas does a great job teaching ASL. He helps you to actually use ASL in phrases to communicate rather than just focusing on single words.

Alyssa is the best! I've been with her for a year now and she makes learning ASL a blast. She is extremely relatable, easygoing, and helpful. Class sessions are never boring because she's very engaging and treats everyone like genuine friends. My ASL skills have improved a lot in a short span of time and I actively look forward to our weekly meetings!

Dan is awesome to work with. I've had five 30 minute sessions so far, and now have switched to 60 minutes - I've even paid in advance for 20 lessons because I know I'll be continuing with him long term. Love that he's very detail oriented and corrects me when I sign less than perfect.

Online American Sign Language Teacher

I love sign language! It is not only something I use as a Sign Language Interpreter but as an everyday language amongst friends.
What experience do I have?? I have had a lot of experience teaching sign language both for work and pleasure.
I have had experience working with many age groups teaching Sign Language. Some Elementary School-High School Level, Businesses and Employees seeking to learn ASL to enhance customer service opportunities, and even young children with multiple disabilities.
I cater to many different needs as well! I have taught many children and young adults learning just for fun! Others are more advanced and wish to pursue careers in Deaf Ed and Interpreting. Another one of my highly effective areas is helping those in the medical field learn to better assist their patients belonging to the deaf community.

What can you get from my class that you may not get from others? For starters, in teaching my own courses I have found the best ways to make learning ASL

"Tony Slate is the reason I became a Deaf education teacher. Learning sign language from Tony was the best decision I have made. I learn under Tony for about three years while I was in high school. I firmly believe that my signing skills would not be where they are today if it was not for him. When I began college my signing skills were easily above the majority of the students begins at the same or even higher level than me. I would recommend lessons from Tony to any one that wants to learn American Sign Language. He is dedicated, passionate and knownadlage."

I never have seen a person so gentle and thorough with children. The children had the best experience because of Ava Haynes expertise.

"Vanessa has been a great instructor. Even though we sign up through Takelessons.com, my computer was acting up from the site and she worked hard to connect with me through zoom. She's on time, explains what we're going to study, gives examples and makes the lessons easy to learn. She's very encouraging, listens well and has a lot of experience, in my opinion at least. I really enjoy being tutored by her."
