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.

About Cosette
Hi, there!

My name is Cosette and I can't wait to meet you! I've taught private lessons since 2009 and have loved helping my students learn, explore, and develop their music skills. I went to Wild Hope Academy and have studied in the music field for over a decade. After beginning with piano and falling in love with all musical aspects I continued on to develop skills from playing the violin, recorder, guitar, and ukelele to singing and acting in multiple musicals. I'm a passionate and purposeful person and my teaching style is fun, insightful, and motivating. I look forward to helping you reach your goals!

Over a span of ten years of teaching music lessons, Cosette was one of my fastest-learning students. Cosette strives to do her very best in every piece she performs and this was evident. Cosette not only would come to lessons prepared; but also because she was always willing to try a new type of dynamic or articulation, or to think of a musical phrase in a new way that would make the passage stronger or more musical. This approach brought her to a high level of playing, quickly.

In addition to her assigned material, Cosette would often work on additional pieces for church, other functions, or just for enjoyment, and bring them to the lesson. I always like it when my students bring extra music like this to the lesson; it shows initiative and involvement with others around them. Cosette definitely enjoyed collaborating musically with her family and friends.

In my opinion, once study and learning has taken place, it is a musician’s duty to look beyond the mechanics and to serve others with their talent - which is something Cosette is already doing.

As her former piano teacher, Cosette was a gifted, eager student who practiced diligently. Cosette pushed herself every bit as hard as I pushed her, and she has a sensitivity to music's subtleties. Her personal character and love of music of music made her a delightful student.

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! :)

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

About Tony
Hi, there! My name is Tony and I can't wait to meet you! I've been teaching formal and private lessons since 1996 and have loved helping my students learn American Sign Language while developing confidence in their skills. I went to Harding University and was trained and tutored by a Master ASL Instructor (CODA) as well as the Deaf community.

My former students have gone on to become Interpreters for the Deaf, Deaf Education Teachers, ASL Teachers, and Deaf ministry.

I'm a patient and fun person and my teaching style is highly interactive. I look forward to helping you reach your goals!

A few months ago I stumbled upon TAKE LESSONS website and found that there were several ASL instructors ready to teach me ASL in the privacy and comfort of my own home. The thought of learning from home sealed the deal! No driving to/from school. I read through the different instructor profiles and decided to sign up with Tony Slate. I’m so happy with my decision. Tony is very easy going and makes the lessons fun. In the 8 sessions I’ve had so far, I’ve learned enough to have mini signing conversations and Tony is also helping me to gain an understanding of Deaf culture. I’m planning on continuing for at least a year more and I’m even looking forward to attending some Deaf events in my local community. I wish I knew about Take Lessons years ago. I highly recommend Tony – 5 stars for sure!

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.

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 amongst 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.
I cater to many different needs as well! I have taught many children and young adults learning just for fun! Others are more advanced and wish to pursue careers in Deaf Ed and Interpreting. Another one of my highly effective areas is helping those in the medical field learn to better assist their patients belonging to the deaf community.

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
