Seeking ASL tutor


I am a hearing individual looking for an ASL tutor. I have taken some ASL classes before, and I am looking for a kind and patient tutor to help me develop further.

I am looking for someone to meet about once a week.

Do you know anyone who might want to tutor me?

Queer ASL 101 Workshops Instead of Classes – Now Accepting Registrations!


In July we are trying something different and instead of having an 101 course that is 8 weeks long – we are breaking them into 5 (3 hours) workshops. You can opt to only take the Deaf Culture workshop or a couple workshops, or do the entire run. If you have taken 101 before but feel like you could use some extra practice on a specific topic, feel free to register for the workshop that focuses on that topic. We are hoping this format might work really well for folks who found the 8 weeks format hard to commit to for whatever reasons.

Here’s what we are offering:

Deaf Culture 101:
You will learn about Deaf culture, history, community, and ASL. This workshop will be ASL – English interpreted.
July 20 or July 23 or July 30

Workshop #1: You will learn the alphabet, numbers, how to introduce yourselves and identify others on top of learning a variety of vocabulary such as colours, clothes, actions, etc.
July 6 or July 10

Workshop #2: You will learn how to ask yes/no questions and discuss likes/dislikes on top of learning a variety of vocabulary such as objects, hobbies, emotions, etc.
July 12 or July 17

Workshop #3: You will learn how to discuss language backgrounds and identifying people & giving in-depth information about them on top of learning a variety of vocabulary such as languages, food & drinks, etc.
July 18 or July 24

Workshop #4: You will learn how to discuss where we grew up & currently live and learn a variety of new vocabulary related to these two topics and do an overall review of what we have learned in our previous workshops.
July 26 or July 31
*Please keep in mind that if you plan to join our 102 course in September, you will need to complete all five workshops.
