People seeking sign language tutors, and those offering sign language tutoring services, have multiple options. Notices can be placed on general advertising websites or iin newsletters of social service agencies for deaf and hard of hearing individuals. There are even databases that list sign language tutors.
Sign Language Tutor AdvertisementsI've seen a good number of general advertisements for sign language tutors on Craigslist.org, a popular online classifieds site. A typical advertisement might outline a request for a sign language tutor for a high school student, or detail the services of an ASL tutor (hours, location, etc.) Ads placed by tutors may also indicate what level of sign language skills they can tutor (beginner's to conversational, for example) and their hourly rates.
Databases of TutorsApparently the need for sign language tutoring is big enough that sign language tutoring is one of the categories in some tutor databases. "Sign language tutoring" was found listed in these databases:
- OhSoEZ.com has a Mentors and Mentees page that lists "advertisements" by sign language tutors (mentors) and people seeking sign language tutoring (mentees).
