I have over two decades of experience teaching signing at all levels. I have been very successful in teaching students to learn and acquire good expressive and receptive sign skills. I am very passionate about the success of my students. I use strategies that make learning signing fun and very interesting. I keep my students very involved and engaged in my lessons. New sign vocabulary and sign structures I teach are immediately modeled and put into practice, which enhances students' retention. I pace my lessons to ensure the learning styles of the students are very well accommodated. I use approaches that foster deeper level of thinking and understanding of the use of signing in various contexts. I treat all my students with due regard, acceptance, and caring support. Their success in acquiring good sign language skills is very important to me. I provide one-on-one support to achieve that goal when required.

Dr. Eleweke is an amazing instructor! I have had him for a few terms now. He takes the time to work through the material and answer questions. Dr. E is very supportive and incredibly passionate about teaching. He creates a welcoming space to learn and practice ASL as well as learn about Deaf culture! I would strongly recommend him for learning sign language!
Sarah
Dr. E is an awesome teacher. He’s patient when you’re slow getting a sign, never seems to get tired answering questions about ASL and he has a fantastic sense of humor, and you can definitely tell that he cares about his students.
Kelly
I recommend Dr. Eleweke for American Sign Language. He has a sense of humor and he is kind, both which help you relax and enjoy learning. This is not his first rodeo, either. He is ready with signs and answers for current times and vocabulary. Dr. Eleweke has a good sense for timing and is sensitive to students being overloaded. I really enjoyed his class, and it was very satisfying to progress to the point where I understood simple, but whole signed conversations.
