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.

About Thomas
I am born and have grown up Deaf. I regularly communicate in American Sign Language (ASL).

During my time at the Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT), I weekly met a few students and helped them with their ASL courses. I signed words and sentences to these students when they asked me questions.

After I have graduated from RIT, I have worked at two federal agencies for three years. At one of these federal agencies, I have participated in ASL courses by one-on-one signing words and sentences to tutees and by having these tutees copy these words and sentences in ASL.

I can provide ASL lessons in the alphabet, common signs, visual description, classifiers, sentence structure, facial expression, body language, specialized signs, and ethical or professional relationships with Deaf and Hard-of-Hearing people. In addition these le
ssons, I can explain how signs and sentence structure form.

In my college career I spent years practicing and learning sign language. I took classes through level III, as well as in my professional theater career I was hired to be in a show that was mostly in sign language, so I had to study under an ASL master. I can teach anything from sign language that you can teach your baby, to level III. We can start the basics and work from there and see what your goals are. I also can't help tutor you if you take classes currently.

About Sarah

Currently she is an actor at Arkansas Art Center and in the rehearsal process for the next two musicals. Last summer she was a company member at Trumpet in the Land in New Philidelphia, Ohio. If you are local she would be more than happy to teach you in person, however if by I am able to do it on video cam. (FaceTime, Skype)
Sarah graduated from Lees-McRae College in May 2017 with her BFA musical theater and minor in art and design. She is very well trained in musical theater, especially voice.

I have now attended 5 lessons with Sarah and after one month, I learnt the correct techniques to breathe & sing. Certainly realized there's less to no pain in my throat compared to before lessons, and also have increase range comfortably. Sarah has different exercises to really help. Looking forward next to project my voice and singing consistently with the right techniques!

Sarah was fun and very easy to follow. She made sure that the signs that I completed were accurate and that if I had questions, she answered them very promptly and thoroughly. It was a very enjoyable session with Sarah. Hope to keep up with her and work on a good level of proficiency.

I've been teaching ASL for 21 years and my students have gone on to develop a deep love of ASL and Deaf culture! I am passionate about teaching, Deaf ministry, and ASL!
Within the first few lessons, you'll start signing simple sentences and as time goes on, you'll be able to converse with people who are Deaf! You will also be learning about the culture of Deaf people at the same time.

Having four children of my own, I have seen the importance of teaching babies sign language. I have seen first hand how it actually speeds up the speech development process and has given them stronger conceptual skills.

If you are a new parent or if you have a child that is losing their hearing and/or going deaf, I will support you and teach you how to communicate effectively.
If you want to avoid the "terrible 2's" let's get to signing right away! :)

Already a Signer?
Let's work on perfecting your skills, work on expanded vocabulary and polish up on Non Manual Markers and mouth ...

Mr. Slate was not my first ASL instructor, but he did reinforce key aspects of ASL that made my foundation solid. He really takes the time to make sure each student is learning and try’s to figure out the best way to teach in order for the student to succeed. Thanks to Mr. Slate I was able to discover my passion for ASL.

Lessons with Tony are a wonderful way to learn and get practice. Tony matches his tutoring with the students needs and abilities and encourages growth in signing and fingerspelling skills. He makes the lessons stress free, fun and I look forward to more lessons with Tony.

I have a simple syllabus plan that involves: Vocabulary lists, practice sentences, fingerspelling words, reading material, video lesson reviews & easy quizzes.
If you're already taking ASL lessons and just need outside tutoring, I'm willing to adjust to the teacher's lessons and signs.

About Tracy
I'm Deaf and have been fluent in ASL for over 35 years. I also can speak and lipread well so there's no language barrier. I teach in a fun, casual style and am flexible in the lesson direction you would like to go.

I'm also legally blind so the only thing I request for our sessions is that you sit in a well-lit area without a window or light directly behind you. The brighter - the better. If I can't see you, I can't tell if you're signing well.

I manage and blog at my own website. I can't wait to meet and chat with you!

I love sign language! It is not only something I use as a Sign Language Interpreter but as an everyday language among 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.

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 enjoyable and easy. I go at your own pace is key and I would love to work with anyone of any level.
I also have extensive training with the Interpreters Training Program for Sign Language Interpreters. What use is that you may ask! I have knowledge in Sign Language in areas of Medical, Law and Education! I also have training in Sign to ...

I learned Asl through music first then I started to learn how to have conversations but you should definitely learn with me and I have reasonable prices.

I am an experienced ASL teacher of 22 years. I have taught ASL to all ages and levels of hearing students and English Literacy to all ages and levels of Deaf students. With a BA degree in ASL/Linguistics and a MA degree in Deaf Education I am a dual-tutor.

Do you want to learn ASL? Here is what my classes look like. American Sign Language is a language expressed entirely through the body. It uses motion, space and non-manual signs (grammar on the face) to convey comprehensive meaning. It is not a written language. As such, my classes are primarily voice-off. We will communicate auditorily before and after the lesson and I encourage students to send me emails and videos with their weekly questions and confusions, but the real learning happens through voice-off lessons. I also teach BabySign using ASL.

Are you Deaf and looking for a Reading/Writing tutor? I’ve taught at Residential Schools, mainstream programs and designed and implemented my own curriculums for Deaf/HH children ...

About Cara
My experience tutoring ASL students began in 1994 when, ironically, I was one myself. As a Freshman at the University of Rochester, New York, I took an ASL class and fell in love with the language and culture. Consequently, I designed my own double major: ASL/Linguistics. The next four years were spent in immersion. The Deaf culture in Rochester provided me with an “abroad” opportunity without leaving the country. Once fluent I began tutoring college students, interpreting at the neighboring college (NTID) and often, was mistaken for one of the Deaf students. Post undergrad, I earned a Masters Degree in Deaf Education at Boston University so I could begin making our complicated language of reading and writing English accessible to young Deaf children. Over the course of my career I have taught ASL to all ages and levels of hearing student
s and English Literacy to all ages and levels of Deaf students. A love for children has recently led me to teach Baby/Toddler Sign classes using ASL.
