Hi, my name is Alan. I am a college graduate who is deaf and fluent in ASL, but can also speak and lipread well. I am presently volunteering to teach a sign language class to a group of hearing students in a local public library on Tuesday evenings. I have been teaching/tutoring ASL privately for over 8 years. I would love to help you learn ASL and interact with deaf people using the expressive and receptive skills that I have mastered throughout my life. I am a very patient teacher who would like to see you become successful in conversing in ASL. I am available to provide you with my tutoring service in the mornings, afternoons or evenings during the week. Please contact me if you are interested

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.

Alan is always well prepared and very thorough throughout lessons. I’m an adult student with a lot of experience learning languages. Alan challenges me without overwhelming me, slows me down so I’m sure to learn it instead of rushing ahead.
