My name is Kevin, but you can call me KG. I've been interested in ASL and Deaf Culture since I was a teenager, and have been taking courses and interacting with the local Deaf community ever since. To date, I've finished ASL 1, 2, and 3 at Monte Vista High School with a Hearing teacher; then ASL 1, 2, and 3 again at University of Colorado, with two Deaf professors; then ASL 1-4 and ASL Linguistics using's online resources. Retaking classes from several different teachers has giv...
We worked on Basic ASL knowledge and Kevin expanded on ASL Grammer. As well as hand placement and Deaf Community normally and perception. Great tutor session, I learned a great deal.

Kevin is teaching us ASL and is a fantastic and engaging teacher who makes it super interesting and fun. Highly recommended!!!
- Karyn H. from Lafayette, CA
KG is very knowledgeable about the mannerisms and skills to be fluent in ASL. He was enthusiastic, polite, and non judgmental towards my non-existent experience in ASL. I?m very hard on myself where as he provides a space & understanding for practice. I appreciate his teachings and can?t wait for the next lesson! Thank you so much!

Kevin teaches sign language to my daughters once a week. The girls say the lessons are fun and they are learning well. Kevin is very good at keeping his students engaged. I recommend him highly.
- Shinya M. from Rego Park, NY
Efficient and helpful. Always positive! Ws able to help my son navigate and practice his ASL homework. Learning ASL virtually has proven to be a real challenge. Kevin is a gift. We will continue to work with Kevin. : )
- Hope H. from Arlington, VA
My daughter was very concerned over and ABC storytelling assignment in ASL. I decided to look for a tutor and found Kevin Not only did he help her with her glossing he watched her sign the entire story several times and critiqued her performances. All of this in under 45 minutes My daughter went from dropping the class to I can do this. I can't thank Kevin enough
- Terry D. from Kissimmee, FL
Even from the intro class in ASL, I felt like I learned so much from KG! I can?t wait to keep practicing and keep learning. He?s a great teacher with an easy and approachable attitude. Thanks, Kevin!
- Pearl P. from Oakland, CA
My son had fallen behind in ASL. He was embarrassed and stressed out about it. Kevin stepped in calmed the waters, connected with my son and helped him to get the work done. Everyone is breathing easier. Would highly recommend working with Kevin.
- Molly N. from Palo Alto, CA
Kevin started us off with the basics of American Sign Language. Essentially we learned the alphabet and some basic greetings. He was courteous and patient every step of the way. I'd highly recommend him to anyone.
- Brian W. from Emeryville, CA
Kevin held the attention of three 12-year-olds for 90 minutes: no small feat! He is friendly and fun and knowledgeable, with an easy-going style that fit perfectly with our situation. He has been flexible about our ever-changing crew of students and is even nice to our dog (who also really likes him). A hearty 5-star recommendation!
- Tricia M. from Oakland, CA
KG really helped me out studying for my ASL final. Clearly very good at this and if I was continuing my sign language studies I would continue to hire him.
- Jackson D. from Berkeley, CA
Kevin worked with me on basic language skills with babies. He was very comfortable and knowledgeable in the area we were covering. He was professional, punctual and demonstrated patience. Kevin arrived with prepared materials that allowed optimal utilization of scheduled time for the class. I would recommend Kevin with his skill and expertise in teaching of ASL.
- Aileen A. from Alamo, CA
Kevin was upbeat and friendly and very helpful. Since it was truly unclear what was even needed, interacting with him was awesome because he helped us figure out what was needed. Then he began helping us get it. We are grateful!
- Karin B. from Fremont, CA
10/10 recommended was a great guy and knew a lot. Helped with what I needed to do. Overall was great!
- Xan G. from Batavia, IL
Classifier stories & review on vocabulary was extremely helpful. Along with fingerspelling tips & practice, thank you. Just having someone FS words at a different pace is helpful in learning. Looking forward to our next appt.
- Jacqueline M. from Clayton, CA
KG is very dynamic and encouraging, utilizing multiple teaching modalities. He is age appropriate with us adult learners and our young ones too. Able to quickly switch from one to the other by focusing on specific individual needs and learning styles.
- Gregory J. from El Sobrante, CA
Kevin is a great tutor. I didn't expect to learn as much as I did in my first session. He made ASL easy and fun to learn. He also presented me with a lesson plan that made ASL simple and easy to learn. Thank you Kevin.
- Frank H. from Dublin, CA
Kevin has great enthusiasm and knows ASL well. Definitely enjoyed the class with him. Hopefully will have future classes with him as well. He was willing to come to me.
- James K. from San Francisco, CA
Had a comprehensive knowledge of ASL - am looking forward to working with him again. Was corrective and instructive in our session, and also had great knowledge of local deaf culture.
