I have been teach Sign Language for the Deaf for over twenty years.
I have taught it in the classroom because I have had two students who were Deaf, and I had to find a way to communicate with them so I took classes in Sign Language for the Deaf so I could communicate with Pam and Charles, and my students could communicate with them as well.
I start out by teaching my students the ABC'S, Numbers one to ten, simple phrases such as please, thank you, your welcome, the colors of the rainbow and simple questions and answers. I also teach words to songs that students can sing in church.
I have been the only Customer Service Representative at Fairlane Town Center that could Sign to the Deaf customers, and I have also Signed for my church.
I ask that if a student wants to learn Sign Language for the Deaf that they bring someone with them that they can practice with throughout the week.

I received my Bachelor of Arts from Marygrove College in Detroit in Language Arts with minors in Music Education and History,and my Masters Degree from Wayne State University in Education with emphasis on English as a Second Language and Sign Language for the Deaf.

American Sign Language

About Alan

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 Pinellas Park on Tuesday evenings. I have been teaching/tutoring ASL privately for 7 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.

Great teacher of all things!

I'm taking piano/voice privately from Mary. I wanted to learn opera and then she showed me how important music theory is to work on your voice. I'm in my mid 40s and thought I never could learn all this complicated stuff- but Mary makes it so fun and easy and motivates me. I and my friend took ballroom dancing from her too. She has great prices and spends alot of overtime . Very generous and experienced!

I've taken a lot of free classes and seminars about on-line marketing and SEO. They are all put on as teasers from companies that want you to hire them. Vanessa answered more questions in 45 minutes than I could have imagined. She gave me very specific and pertinent information. Not the generalities and vagueness I've gotten from so many of these seminars. I'm beyond pleased with her knowledge and wish I had found her months ago when I started marketing my business on-line.

About Aria

Hi all! I am a twenty-five year old female, and I am very passionate about the Deaf Culture and American Sign Language. I am currently enrolled in my last semester at the Community College of Baltimore County in the Interpreter Preparation Program. I have little teaching experience, but it involved teaching sign language to a young girl who was Deaf and Autistic. I have endless patience and want to see everyone I teach succeed. If you choose me to teach you American Sign Language, you will get exposure to the "Signing Naturally" workbooks, and knowledge of the Deaf Culture. I will use different methods such as video clips, "voice off" sessions, and give you a designated amount of time per lesson to learn signs that YOU want to learn. I want to make this a fun experience for any ...

My "second" language is ASL. I was raised around deaf people and have been signing most of my life. I became a licensed interpreter at the age of 16. I paid for much of my college by teaching accredited sign language classes at Mobile University and the University of South Alabama. After college I worked as the Assistant Director for the Mobile Center for the Deaf. I can teach you to sign music, interpret church services, improve your ASL or prepare for national interpreter evaluations. If you want to learn Cued Speech, I can help you there as well.
