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 the
m 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 lessons, I can explain how signs and sentence structure form.

I've been teaching ASL for 21 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 ...

Mr. Slate was not my first ASL instructor, but he did reinforce key aspects of ASL that made my foundation solid. He really takes the time to make sure each student is learning and try’s to figure out the best way to teach in order for the student to succeed. Thanks to Mr. Slate I was able to discover my passion for ASL.

Kat has proven to be such a valuable and wonderful teacher. From the beginning of our process of starting ASL lessons for my daughter, she was communicative, thorough and 100% professional. Once our lessons began, she proved to be an incredible instructor (my daughter loves her lessons) as well as conscientious in our lesson schedule. Further, even when we need to change our lesson due to a scheduling conflict, she is very understanding, which I have appreciated. I can not recommend Kat enough!!!

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 students 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.
