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 am a Deaf ASL instructor, and I've been teaching since 2015. I've enjoying to see my students develop a sense of ASL, which is a beautiful and visual language to learn.

Once you take a few ASL classes, you will build your signs skills to able to converse with Deaf people and learn about Deaf Culture.

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.

Statistics from 2008 indicate that approximately 50,000 or more people (including children and adults) living in the United States are DeafBlind.  Being categorized as DeafBlind refers to a wide array of people; the sensory loss varies from person …

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. Even less people realize that ASL is not universal, but unique to the US and parts of Canada. Therefore, it’s probable that very few people living in the US realize that ASL has variations. 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.
