Tony is a patient teacher who loves his subject and his students. He loves to teach, and truly gets excited when he sees his students "getting it". He is a rare teacher because he is so connected personally to the subject and to every student. He is a great encourager and motivator, and he is extremely skilled in ASL. This is no "side job" for him. He is devoted to the deaf community, and part of that devotion is teaching hearing folks to communicate with the community he loves so much. If you want to learn ASL, you will not be disappointed with Tony.

Tony teaches from the heart. Tony has given my child the confidence he needs to succeed while teaching him ASL. He has picked up so quickly and I am constantly amazed at what he has learned. I can't say enough good things about the way Tony interacts with students to make them feel like they can accomplish anything they set their mind to. We are grateful to have him in our child's life. We highly recommend him to friends and family.
A Happy Mama
