Our classes meet Monday to Fridays.

Our classes are taught primarily in ASL (the target language) and require that all students participate using ASL and adhering to our "voices off" policy.

Our classes require preparation for and participation in every class meeting.

Our classes are "hands-on" and highly interactive. Students are always involved in whole class, small group, and partner activities using ASL and visual-gestural communication.

Our classes include written, signed, and online tests as well as linguistic analysis and cultural reflection projects.

Our classes provide a positive learning environment where students have fun, get to know one another, and create a unique little community!

I have a BA in services to the Deaf with a minor in Interpreting. I currently teach ASL for the local technology center. In my classes I teach not only the signs but also add culture. I will share personal stories and things that happened when I was learning, that if someone had told me different I would not have offended people. I will teach you by association and explain why some signs are what they are. If you are looking for a fun , and informative class sign up for mine today.

Hey, I'm Evan. I'm a college student with an immense love for ASL and experience in leading children. Whether you are a student struggling in ASL class or all you need is someone to sign with, I am perfect for any aspiring ASL users!

For a little background on my love of ASL, when I was young, I had the privilege of studying under an amazing deaf ASL teacher. In his spare time, he ran a nonprofit dedicated to deaf children in his birth country of Zambia. That inspiring experience led me to integrate myself as heavily as I could into the deaf community in my hometown of San Francisco.

Now I figure that tutoring is an amazing excuse to keep my ASL sharp and a great way that I can give back to the community by spreading ASL!

About Evan

I am currently a philosophy and political science student at Bard who skipped senior year of high school to go directly into college. When I'm bored I fidget in asl and in my free time, I transcribe some of my favorite songs into ASL. In my time studying ASL, I had a deaf teacher so immersion was

Overall, very pleasant as a tutor.

I took weekly private online lessons with Kaitlin for 5 months. She was very open to hearing my goals and the specific areas I wanted to work on and brought different ideas to the lessons to add variety. She was flexible, non-judgmental, and helpful. I really enjoyed and learned from our lessons and highly recommend Kaitlin.

"I love Serfiry, I’ve been learning ASL from him for years. His patience, clarity and quality are key points that make him a very good teacher. He’ll provide pointed and kind feedback that definitely helps for improving. He was raised with hearing and fear of all levels of education, and bridges the gap without making anyone feel inferior.

Thanks Serfiry for the opportunity to learn ASL from a great educator."

"Catherine was an amazing teacher with a lot of in-depth experience with both ASL and Deaf culture. She was able to explain the nuances of regional Deaf cultures and signs, and the history of ASL and how it informs the signs used to this day.

She’s very encouraging and easy to work with, and more than willing to tailor the classes to your specific goals. I was able to progress towards my goals and feel encouraged and better prepared to continue studying.

She has experience as an interpreter in hospitals, churches, classrooms and even signing in the home, all of which require very particular knowledge and context.

Most of all, she loves and works directly with the Deaf community and brings that care and experience to every lesson. Thanks Catherine!"
