Alan is a great instructor! He comes prepared with topics, but doesn't mind tangential conversations based on questions I have. He's got a great sense of humor and manages to help me understand everything he's signing even if he has to repeat, fingerspell, or sign it differently. He's so patient.

In my first lesson I've already learned so much! I've tried teaching myself ASL in the past, but still images aren't even close to a real-time teacher. He's super nice and makes it easy to learn. Thank you!!

Alan is patient, knowledgeable and generous with his time. The prepared lessons he sends in advance of the class are very helpful. My biggest surprise and challenge is that many of the signs I've been learning on the internet are outdated. Now I have to unlearn old signs and bad habits. That's the biggest advantage of having a live instructor. Not only do I get to practice, but I can stay current. I definitely plan to continue my lessons with Alan.
