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.

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 grew up hard of hearing with no hearing in my left ear. I speak well enough that people occasionally forget I am deaf. At the age of 14, I woke up one day and couldn't hear anything. I am now accustomed to hearing aids. I've been signing since I was a teen. I use websites (Lifeprint.com) to help m

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.

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😊"

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 …

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 …

What's the Difference Between ASL & BSL?

Have you been wondering, "What's the difference between ASL and BSL?" This is a great question, and deserves a little more background. First of all, did you know that sign language is not universal? Just like there are numerous spoken languages (around 6,500) used across the globe, there are also many sign languages (somewhere between 138-300) used by various Deaf communities. Though it’s a common belief, sign languages do not stem from a country’s spoken language. The natural develo …
