Private American Sign Language Teacher

Taught American Sign Language (ASL) full-time and part-time (nights) for 39 years, just recently retired from full-time teaching. I have primarily used Signing Naturally (SN) workbooks, all levels. I have also used Learning American Sign Language (LASL).
Currently, I am teaching Deaf Culture as an online course at San Diego Mesa College.
I have been using ASL since I was 4 years old and I have attended California School for the Deaf, Berkeley (Fremont) and Riverside. I have received valuable experience from Deaf peers of Deaf parents, Deaf adults and Deaf leaders. In this sense, I am a native user of ASL and ASL Fingerspelled Signs.
Graduated from Gallaudet College (University) in Washington, D.C. with a B.S. in Business Administration. I received two Masters degrees from California State University, Northridge, one in Deaf Education and the other in Educational Administration. I received my Doctoral degree in Educational Leadership from University of Southern California ...

"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😊"

What is Black ASL?

Most people living in the United States are likely familiar with American Sign Language (ASL); even if they don’t know any signs, they know it exists.

Just as with spoken languages, which have various dialects and accents, there are also variations within ASL, and age, race, location, socio-economic c …

How to Teach Deaf Children to Read

Hearing Loss According to the CDC, at least one in 1,000 babies are born with a hearing loss. Historically, a hearing loss could go overlooked in a baby for months and even years, but fortunately, at present approximately 98% of infants are screened for a hearing loss. Identifying a hearing loss in infants is critical, because the first three years of life are crucial for speech and language development and it’s important for all children to have linguistic input from birth.
