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 earned three years of professional experience at two federal agencies. 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 lessons, I can explain how signs and sentence structure form.

I've been teaching ASL for 19 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! :)

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

We learned some basic ASL with Tony to help give us an extra way to communicate with our Hard of Hearing baby. Tony is extremely knowledgeable, is a fantastic teacher, and was a real pleasure to work with. When we want to learn more ASL, we'll definitely be signing up (pun intended) with Tony!

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 manage and blog at my own website. I can't wait to meet and chat with you!

Kat is a very good teacher. I have learned a lot in these last 3 weeks. She is able to make it fun while having to learn. I am glad she is my teacher. I get to interact with her with games and activities instead of just a book. I recommend her as a teacher.

I am a college student with over 4 years of signing classes and experience. I am always learning more, and am training to get my interpretation license. I have a passion for teaching students ASL to broaden their horizons and be able to effectively communicate with Deaf people. I can teach fingerspelling, glossing, signing to music, numbers, etc. Feel free to message me with questions!

About Sarah
Hey there! Thanks for checking out my profile.

My name is Sarah, and I am a Music Therapy and Composition student at Converse. I have over 15 years of experience in piano, and play six other instruments as well. I have a passion for music, and love merging that passion with my love of teaching and helping others.

What makes my teaching style unique is that I can relate to students. I have been there, so I know how it feels. I know how practicing can be boring or frustrating, and how it can be hard to find time to practice. Using this experience I employ unique games and exercises to help motivate my students to get over these obstacles and succeed to the highest level.

Another thing that makes me unique is the fact that I am a composer. I have access to composition software, and can use that to transpose or compose music that is indiv
idual to every student's level. (This also cuts down on book costs at times.)

Overall, I just want to see my students happy and thriving in their love for music! Feel free to message me for details or if you have any questions. I look forward to working with you!
