I have over 5 years experience with American Sign Language. I start simple with some voice, but as lessons progress, less voice with be present and more signing will be seen.

Do you want to learn how to communicate with the Deaf? Are you intrigued by the use of sign language? Come learn with me. I am Deaf and I use American Sign Language. My brother is also Deaf, so we grew up using ASL together and at school. I have been teaching online for the past 5 years, and I love teaching others how to improve their communication skills in ASL. Sign language is one of the most expressive languages, have you seen an interpreter recently on the new? Have you noticed how fast they move their fingers, and make a variety of facial expressions. I can help you, no matter what level of ASL you know, I want to help you make progress and become fluent. I have a toddler and he is learning ASL, if he can, you can! See you in the classroom!

Serfirys is an amazing teacher! He is patient, cheerful, and encouraging. I loved my first lesson with him!
Pat M.
So much fun. I can actually have a conversation and my understanding is improving.
Christine
I booked 10 classes with Serfirys and have finished my first 3. I look forward to it every week! Learning a new language as an adult can seem intimidating- but not with him. I try to learn my vocab list the week before the class and then get corrections regarding hand/ finger placements from him during the class-which is really helpful. I've started signing to myself in the mirror so that i can identify words more easily when speaking with Serfirys. Serfirys is really funny and expressive-i definitely feel welcome when I'm in his class😊
