About David

I have worked as a Deaf/Hard of Hearing teacher for the past 21 years. For the past several years, I have also provided in-home tutoring service to students primarily of elementary school age to help them brush up on skills such as reading and math. My passion however is ASL, and I would be delighted to work with you on that. If you are interested in either beginning your ASL adventure, brushing up on old "forgotten" skills, or working to polish up your expressive or receptive skills, I can help you with that.

My approach to tutoring ASL is very "hands-on" (because, is there any other way to learn a manual language?) and my patience level is extremely high. I encourage my students to try right from the very beginning, and in a short time our sessions will all be conducted completely in ASL without using any voice at all! Sound scary? Believe me, you can do it! I have many years experience doing this, and I know how to help you get to where you want to be. As long as there is motivation, there will be success!

The Deaf culture is complex, and the language they share has deep roots in that complexity. I have many Deaf friends, and have been active in the community for over two decades. I understand the fear that comes with learning to communicate with people who are of a different community than ours, and I couldn't have been successful without the support and patience of those who tutored me. I am qualified, certified, and ready to return the favor to the next generation of learners. I will not let you down.

My credentials include passing the NAD (National Association of the Deaf) certification at Level 4 (out of 5), and passing the SLPI (Sign Language Proficiency Interview) several times. I am a certified ASL interpreter, as well as a licensed D/HH teacher with my M.Ed. in that field. If you are an eager student, I am ready to help you succeed!

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.

Sign Language

I have a M.Ed. degree in DHH teaching, ages Birth-21. I have been a DHH teacher and a certified ASL interpreter for the past 21 years. I have also tutored through Club-Z in-home tutoring for 3 years, and taught community education classes in Eden Prairie in beginning ASL. My cultural awareness of the language and the people is vast and varied, and I have several Deaf friends I connect with regularly. I am certain I can help WyzAnt students attain their goals in this field.
