Hello I'm Danielle!

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone. I am currently in ASL 101.  I am 24 years old.  My non sign language classes have been keeping me so busy that my signing is being neglected, but that is what I want to put the most importance on. Right now I am not very confident in my signing or receptive ability and that is what I would like to work on. I really need work with my fingerspelling receptive skills and I need to get better at converting English sentences to ASL grammar structure. I am in the Eastern standard time zone and work at nights so I am often available during the day to chat or practice with anyone who might be interested. I can sign small, fragmented sentences that are not exactly proper ASL grammar so if anybody is interested in practicing together, that is my current skill level. I hope to meet some of you and practice sometime!

Hi Danielle,  I'd love to help.  It's good that you're on the East coast, because the "Gallaudet" standard has been compromised by "Mexican/Spanish" on the West coast.  I'm hearing, but translate for deaf patients at my local hospitals, quite regularly, and tutor PPCC (local Jr. College) students who are struggling.  You can contact me @ [email protected], or call me @ (757) 375-3923 and leave a message.  I also have several ads on Craigslist.org.    Let's talk.  Nana Dee.

Hi Nana Dee it's very nice to meet you, I am pleasantly surprised to read you tutor at PCCC, that's where I am taking my ASL classes. I would truly love the extra help if you have time availability during week days?

Hi Danielle, I don't tutor AT PPCC, but tutor lots of students From PPCC that are having problems.   The rest of my time I spend at Penrose Hosp. helping Dr.'s and nurses communicate with the deaf.  I'm available Mon - Thur, but we need to coordinate our times and meeting place.  I charge $40/hour.  Some of that time can be via Skype or other, but the most effective learning is done in person.  If that's acceptable to you, or if you have more questions, you can contact me at [email protected], or [email protected], or via the Sign Language Forum.

@Nana Dee I see, well I very much appreciate you offering your services! However I am more in search of people I may practice with, and not looking for a tutor at this time as it is outside of my financial capability. Thank you again and best of luck on here! :)

    • Sorry for all the posts. I did some brief reading on sentence structure, I am reminded of my Russian studies where sentences can be very simple and order can determine emphasis. Obviously I will take anyone’s advice, but something like: - Here too many people - future you me dinner? - tomorrow i call, okay?
    • Okay, one more sentence while I'm asking "I was thinking the two of us could have dinner sometime - you know - without all these other people."
    • There’s someone in my social circle that I would like to get to know better. Whenever I see her, we are always with a crowd of people, so I was racking my brain to come up with how to ask and get her attention.   Among other things she is an ASL teacher... if I started signing to her I think she would be absolutely floored (and hopefully say yes!) I would like to sign to her: ”I would like to call you tomorrow, if that is okay.” I’ll cover some more general words between now and then, but that’s how I’d like to ‘surprise’ her as it were. Thanks in advance!
    • Hello Karen, Thanks for the suggestion, we'll take a look at adding numbers in a future update. Are you referring to the animation resource: https://www.signlanguageforum.com/asl/fingerspelling/message/ ?
