Fun Auslan Teacher (Fluent Deaf Auslan signer with university and TAFE/college teaching experiences)

Methodology

Short and easy, fun 1-hour Auslan lessons. Auslan (Australian Sign Language) is the official language of Deaf Australians. Auslan is different to English due to its unique syntax, grammar, Deaf facial expressions and body language for intonation and contexts. Auslan also has state dialects with regional and local accents.

My teaching philosophy is to teach Auslan in an inclusive and safe environment at the learner's pace with learning materials provided.

If you need any assistance on topics or vocab, please feel free to book and contact me. :-)

I am profoundly Deaf and fluent Auslan signer. I live in Australia all of my life.

Background

10 years of teaching experience as an Auslan tutor and Auslan teacher in schools, universities, TAFEs/colleges, community groups and family's/clients' homes. I taught and mentored more than 500 hearing students in my life experience as a Deaf Auslan signing person. Most of my successful students become disability support workers, interpreters and Deaf community allies or professionals with Deafness Awareness skills and basic Auslan skills for communicating with their Deaf Auslan clients.

Rates

Travel Fee : $50
Rate for online lessons : $60/h

Details

Cancellations need to be given at least 12 hours to the Auslan teacher for rescheduling lessons. Minimum 2 hours booking for onsite lessons are required.
If you cancel under 12 hours, you will be charged of one hour cancellation fee ($85 for onsite lessons; $60 for remote lessons) because he will be unlikely to replace the work cancelled at short notice.
Online lessons are different to face to face lessons.
1 hour (webcam) lessons are available.

Shawn is a committed, dedicated young man, with a passion for inclusion and equal access for people with disability. He lived experience of disability and knowledge of Auslan would enable him to help tutor others to develop their skills, knowledge and experience.

Shawn is highly knowledgeable, hardworking and patient. As a Deaf man and passionate community leader. Shawn has the skills and knowledge to give you an in-depth instruction into the clear and accurate use of Australian sign languages (Auslan). I would recommend Shawn.

R

I have known Shawn for 9 years. I met him at meetings, workshops and camps. He likes the challenge of teaching Auslan. He is quite intelligent and willing to help others in need. I highly recommend him as he is reliable

D
Dymity

I have known Shawn for approximately 10 years. During this time I have found Shawn to be a very honest, reliable and respectful person. As regards to his work, he is ambitious, very motivated, extremely competent and has developed a strong work ethic wherever he has been employed. He has also been proven to be an extremely competent Auslan Tutor. I therefore have no hesitation of recommending Shawn as an Auslan Tutor for Superprof students!
