Private American Sign Language Teacher

Taught American Sign Language (ASL) full-time and part-time (nights) for 39 years, just recently retired from full-time teaching. I have primarily used Signing Naturally (SN) workbooks, all levels. I have also used Learning American Sign Language (LASL).
Currently, I am teaching Deaf Culture as an online course at San Diego Mesa College.

I have received valuable experience from Deaf peers of Deaf parents, Deaf adults and Deaf leaders. In this sense, I am a native user of ASL and ASL Fingerspelled Signs.
Graduated from Gallaudet College (University) in Washington, D.C. with a B.S. in Business Administration. I received two Masters degrees from California State University, Northridge, one in Deaf Education and the other in Educational Administration. I received my Doctoral degree in Educational Leadership from University of Southern California ...

I learned ASL from the Deaf Community over 35 years ago so, I understand the cultural aspects of the language in addition to its linguistics. I received my AAS through an interpreter training program in 2010. Since 1998, I have been both an Educational and a Medical Interpreter through various agencies in my area. I am state certified and hold EIPA (Educational Interpreter Performance Assessment) credentials as well.

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.

"Alan is a great teacher. His lessons offer a real mix of technical practice and information on deaf culture which I was looking for. He is flexible with time and always willing to 'chat' a few minutes longer than the lessons require. I would recommend him to anyone interested in learning (or improving their prior knowledge of) ASL online."
