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 worked at two federal agencies for three years. 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 le
ssons, 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 ...

Tony was awesome as usual. We talked about the review words in my last current unit of my curriculum. He asked to help me with reviewing my recent test. We will go over my class notes next week.

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'm also legally blind so the only thing I request for our sessions is that you sit in a well-lit area without a window or light directly behind you. The brighter - the better. If I can't see you, I can't tell if you're signing well.

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

Due to my limitations of hearing, it's hard to understand sometimes but Tracy was happy to review. The slower the better for me.

I learned Asl through music first then I started to learn how to have conversations but you should definitely learn with me and I have reasonable prices.

About Candice
Hi, My name is Candice. I am deaf. I am American Sign Language (ASL) Instructor at community college for 2 years; almost 3 years in 2018. Whoo Whoo! I teach ASL classes in Bakersfield, California. Teaching ASL in class is very enjoyable and fun. I love to see my students learn my language and culture. They gain the awareness of Deaf culture, Deaf history, and Deaf community. I always encourage them to be involved in deaf community so they can interact with deaf people. That way they can get used deaf people' various signing style and build their confidence into ASL conversation.

I graduated from California State University Northridge with Bachelor's of Child Development and am currently teaching ASL classes in 3 hours every weekly for beginner students. My versatility, experience and formal training helps me to make the learning experi

I had involved in extracurricular activities during my college year: Alpha Sigma Theta deaf sorority for 4 years, AIDS project, National Black Deaf Advocate, Peer Mentor for Child Development class, ASL tutor, and small role in TV show "Switched at Birth". Those activities were rich experience for me because I discover my deaf identify and how I am able to overcome the obstacles in real world to be treat equally.

I am an experienced ASL teacher of 22 years. I have taught ASL to all ages and levels of hearing students and English Literacy to all ages and levels of Deaf students. With a BA degree in ASL/Linguistics and a MA degree in Deaf Education I am a dual-tutor.

Do you want to learn ASL? Here is what my classes look like. American Sign Language is a language expressed entirely through the body. It uses motion, space and non-manual signs (grammar on the face) to convey comprehensive meaning. It is not a written language. As such, my classes are primarily voice-off. We will communicate auditorily before and after the lesson and I encourage students to send me emails and videos with their weekly questions and confusions, but the real learning happens through voice-off lessons. I also teach BabySign using ASL.

Are you Deaf and looking for a Reading/Writing tutor? I’ve taught at Residential Schools, mainstream programs and designed and implemented my own curriculums for Deaf/HH children ...

About Cara
My experience tutoring ASL students began in 1994 when, ironically, I was one myself. As a Freshman at the University of Rochester, New York, I took an ASL class and fell in love with the language and culture. Consequently, I designed my own double major: ASL/Linguistics. The next four years were spent in immersion. The Deaf culture in Rochester provided me with an “abroad” opportunity without leaving the country. Once fluent I began tutoring college students, interpreting at the neighboring college (NTID) and often, was mistaken for one of the Deaf students. Post undergrad, I earned a Masters Degree in Deaf Education at Boston University so I could begin making our complicated language of reading and writing English accessible to young Deaf children. Over the course of my career I have taught ASL to all ages and levels of hearing student
s and English Literacy to all ages and levels of Deaf students. A love for children has recently led me to teach Baby/Toddler Sign classes using ASL.
