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 at a public library on Tuesday evenings. I have been teaching/tutoring ASL privately for seven 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.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Hard Of Hearing

I am deaf and fluent in ASL. I understand the special needs of people who are hearing-impaired because I have them myself. I frequently interact with the deaf people. I can assist them to learn to read and write English and to use ASL or any other subject that they may need help with.
