If you are interested in learning American Sign Language (ASL), please allow me to help you develop this fun and practical communication skill. My background consists of having an M.S. degree in Rehab Counseling with an emphasis in Deafness Rehab. I am well-known in the community as a strong advocate for persons with disabilities. I have experience in working as a deaf interpreter along with being an ASL instructor.
I am willing to travel anywhere in San Diego County to meet you at a convenient location. One of the services I offer at no cost is to accompany you at various Deaf Cultural/Social events. The best way to practice is to interact with the native "speakers". My cancellation policy is consistent with Wyzant's recommendations. Any cancellation by a student within 24 hours or less will be billed at half rate. I look forward to hearing from you soon.

I'm currently an ASL 2 student, and am excited to have found Steve as a tutor. I am a serious student, who is studying ASL to further enhance my career in teaching. I feel Steve is going to be a great fit in helping me learn and apply the "technical skills" of ASL as well as gain the practice I need in "everyday conversations" to improve my fluency in the language.
Steve is a great teacher. I learned the alphabet and numbers today as well some shortcuts for phrases like "welcome." I am looking forward to our next lesson. He was very patient with me which I appreciate.
Marilyn is a wonderful student and I sincerely enjoy helping her learn such a fun language. Keep up the great work, Marilyn!
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.
