How can a American Sign Language tutor help you?
General education requirements at both the high school and undergraduate levels often require students to master another language. For those who choose to pursue American Sign Language over the course of their studies, the unique nature of the subject may prove difficult. While many languages require students to master a new written system of communication, using foreign letters and characters, ASL requires students to become adept in a new form of visual communication. Adapting to the use of movement in place of verbal cues is a process that simply cannot be conveyed through a book, and impersonal online tutorials fail to provide useful interaction. For those wishing to improve their skills outside of the classroom, American Sign Language tutoring may be the best option. Varsity Tutors can help you connect with ASL tutors throughout the country, helping you build the knowledge to be successful in this challenging language.
While American Sign Language is, inherently, not foreign, it still bears many of the characteristics of languages outside of English. While some foreign studies highlight the use of different emphases and intonations, American Sign Language demands a focus on gesticulation and facial expression. Integrating your understanding of spoken English vocabulary, ASL phrases, and expressive behaviors can pose a challenge to becoming fluent in the language. The only truly effective way to master the dynamic aspects of American Sign Language is through interpersonal engagement, and private ASL tutoring can provide this.
