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 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.

    • Hello all! Thanks for taking the time to read my message. It has been a while since I've been active on a forum so this is kinda fun for me :') As a construction worker I've been exposed to loud noise pretty regularly. Sometimes its noise from machines, people working away, and what not. But it would appear that its been having an effect on my hearing! I've been getting my hearing tested quite frequently (I'd say maybe once a year for the past few years). Although my hearing is still very audible, there is some minor degredation. Also I have a family history of hearing complication. The more I think about it the more it seems like it might be a smart idea to learn to sign. I started learning online recently and found the process to be quite fun. Not only a valuble language, as a social person being able to opens doors to communicate with people that I may have had more difficulty with in the past. I really enjoy outdoorsie stuff (hiking, kayaking), and socializing, I'm a film nerd :') So what is your favorite movie! Please to mee you. Jo.
