Private American Sign Language Teacher

Taught American Sign Language (ASL) full-time and part-time (nights) for 39 years, just recently retired from full-time teaching. I have primarily used Signing Naturally (SN) workbooks, all levels. I have also used Learning American Sign Language (LASL).
Currently, I am teaching Deaf Culture as an online course at San Diego Mesa College.
I have been using ASL since I was 4 years old and I have attended California School for the Deaf, Berkeley (Fremont) and Riverside. I have received valuable experience from Deaf peers of Deaf parents, Deaf adults and Deaf leaders. In this sense, I am a native user of ASL and ASL Fingerspelled Signs.
Graduated from Gallaudet College (University) in Washington, D.C. with a B.S. in Business Administration. I received two Masters degrees from California State University, Northridge, one in Deaf Education and the other in Educational Administration. I received my Doctoral degree in Educational Leadership from University of Southern California ...

Wow, can’t say enough good things about Bill! My boyfriend and I decided recently that ASL was something we would really like to pursue learning together, so I signed us both up for lessons with Bill and we are so grateful for all of his patience, guidance, careful explanation, and enthusiasm. Learning so far has been a breeze and so much fun! We really look forward to our lessons, and they seem to fly by each time. We would highly recommend Bill to anyone eager to learn and understand more about sign language. What an incredible experience!

Great Lesson! Bill was prepared very well and lead me through my first beginner ASL steps well. He motivated me great, it was fun and we had good laughs. Thanks a lot! great Teacher <3
I am looking forward to learn more from Bill in my weekly lessons.

All science classes listed on my profile are offered in ASL. This is not a class focused on Deaf culture so much as an ESL class focused on the use of ASL in science for those whose preference in ASL rather than English.

I am hard-of-hearing and use ASL.

Marie is an enthusiastic and detailed teacher. She has a great ability to explain complicated concepts with visuals and unique approaches. Her love of the subject really shines in her teaching. I highly recommend Marie as a science tutor.
Gina
Marie teaches with great enthusiasm, and it's hard not to get excited when your teacher is so excited about the subject. She has a true appreciation for how things work together, and it's like she helps you put the puzzle pieces together to see the cause and effects. With Marie, it's not like you learn tons of individual facts and memorize a bunch of stuff that you'll forget later. Instead you learn how one thing affects another so you can understand cycles and processes in Science. Plus, she has a great sense of humor and loves to laugh, so that makes learning fun.
Sofia
Marie is clear and patient. She’s sparky and explains things interestingly.

"Dan has been absolutely amazing! From the very first lesson, he has been nothing but kind, patient and funny throughout all our sessions. Every lesson he incorporates games and anecdotes making it so much fun to learn!

He is very knowledgeable not only in ASL, but also in interpreting, which is great for my studies; I plan on having lessons with him throughout my studies for further help and practice.

He is super passionate about teaching ASL and goes out of his way to send you resources, links and information to further help your learning and practice of the language. Truly one of a kind!

I highly recommend him for learning any level of ASL!"

What is Black ASL?

Most people living in the United States are likely familiar with American Sign Language (ASL); even if they don’t know any signs, they know it exists. Even less people realize that ASL is not universal, but unique to the US and parts of Canada. Therefore, it’s probable that very few people living in the US realize that ASL has variations. Just as with spoken languages, which have various dialects and accents, there are also variations within ASL, and age, race, location, socio-economic c …

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 …
