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.

Thomas does a great job teaching ASL. He helps you to actually use ASL in phrases to communicate rather than just focusing on single words.

Online American Sign Language Teacher

I am an Educational Interpreter working in the K-12 school system as well as work with a Non-Profit that teaches beginner level ASL classes. I specialize in teaching beginner level American Sign Language for children and parents who are new to the language. I do this because learning a new language must be applied in ways that are easily comprehensive to both youngsters and adults.

Classes with me can vary from novel learning to advanced conversational sign language. Looking to learn basic, every day vocabulary? I've got you! Looking for an hour of immersion practice and signing? I've got you there too!

I am willing to be flexible with how I tutor, based on your needs. However, I specialize in working with children and teaching parents and children basic signs they'll need for everyday communication and needs.
