All science classes listed on my profile are offered in ASL. This is not a class focused on teaching ASL at the beginner level. This class focuses on science for those whose preference is ASL rather than English.

I am hard-of-hearing and use ASL.

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!

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😊

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.

I’m open to using many different books, videos, exercises, and songs to help my students learn Sign Language. I love teaching kids of all ages and parents, grandparents, guardians so they can communicate with the Deaf and/or do well in their ASL classes. I have multiple curriculums on hand. I look forward to teaching/tutoring you in any way I can! Blessings on your future in the ASL/Deaf world!

American Sign Language Flashcards & Other Memorization Techniques

There are various approaches to studying and memorizing information, from practice quizzes and note-taking to outlines or flashcards, and although flashcards may seem like a boring and repetitive way to study, they actually work. Flashcards engage active recall, metacognition (i.e., self-reflection), and spaced repetition. When used properly, flashcards are effective study materials. And making sign language flashcards can help speed your ASL learning. Using Physical Flashcards Properly us …
