About Alan

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 had volunteered to teach a sign language class to a group of hearing students at a public library weekly. I have been teaching/tutoring ASL privately for over nine years with individuals on a one-to-one basis or in a group setting at various locations around the Bay area. 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. Hi, my name is Alan.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Sign Language

I am deaf and fluent in American Sign Language. Although I am deaf, I can lipread and speak well. I am also a college graduate with B.A. Economics degree. I have over 8 years experience in teaching and tutoring hearing adults in ASL at various places in the local area. I am capable of helping a student to be successful in conversing in ASL.

Highly recommendable tutor

Alan is a student-oriented tutor. His primary focus was on what I needed, and he stayed within that parameter throughout the session. He took his time with each sign, making sure that I understood them all. He made corrections where necessary and did not move on until I was able to sign with the proper hand shape and location. He has a positive attitude, a good sense of humor, is very encourag
