About Kevin

I have been profoundly deaf since I was 14-16 months old. Although I was Deaf from a young age, I did not identify myself as a Deaf person until I went to college at The National Institute of Technology at the Rochester Institute of Technology. Yes, I learned ASL in college! You can learn at any age! Since my time in college, I have been involved in numerous hours of volunteer teaching services for the Youngstown Hearing and Speech Center - Community Center for the Deaf (Deaf Advocate, Deaf youth leadership, Committee member for various fundraising events, and hosting the Children’s holiday parties). I also helped bridge the Deaf and hearing communities by hosting ASL Social Events for students, friends and families.

I have taught American Sign Language at the Youngstown Hearing and Speech Center - Community Center for the Deaf for seven years until I recently relocated to the Akron area. I miss teaching ASL as well ASL tutoring too. Currently I work part time as an ASL Lab Mentor at Kent State University. I have been a member of Ohio American Sign Language Teacher Association for seven years, including four years as an OASLTA Treasurer.

Please don't hesitant to contact me with any questions or concerns. I am flexible with your ASL and tutoring needs!

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 taught ASL for 7 years in the community setting, and worked as an ASL Lab Mentor at Kent State University. I use various teaching strategies and ASL tools to help students meet their goals.

Great tutor!

Today was the first day of my daughter's lessons. They were nervous at first but then relaxed and felt very comfortable. They are looking forward to their next lesson!!
