At this tier, in addition learning support and access to exclusive videos here on Patreon, you will also have access to monthly group practice sessions. If you are currently trying to learn sign language but don't have others to practice with, this is a great chance to join a group of other learners and have an opportunity to put what you have learned into practice.  


Groups will consist of between 2-5 students at a time and I will be scheduled at a time that is convenient for all. If you have any questions at all, please feel free to email me direction at [email protected]


In addition to having access to group practice sessions, your support will also help us continue to make free educational videos to help others learn sign language. Below are all of the benefits that are included at this tier. Thank you!

At this tier, you have access to a 30 min personal 1 on 1 tutoring session every month! If you are serious about wanting to either learn sign language or learn how to take your interpreting to the next level, this is a great way to achieve it. 


Over the years, both myself and my wife have helped hundreds of people gain sign language fluency and have mentored dozens of interpreters.


So whether you are just getting started learning sign language or have been learning for years, we can create a personalized lesson or course for you so you can take your learning to the next level. 


If you are interested in becoming an interpreter or are interested on assistance with passing a certification such as the ESSE or EIPA, we can help you with that too!


At this time, I am only accepting 5 students at this tier.

About

My name is Chris Gorges and both my wife and I have been involved in the sign language community for over 10 years and we are currently working as certified sign language interpreters in California.

Over the years, I have had cherished the privilege of working as both an interpreter and an educator. I've enjoyed traveling as a public speaker, working with students at all grade levels, consulting with various public schools and colleges, and have had the honor of working alongside some incredible people along the way, both deaf and hearing. 

More recently, I have had the pleasure of helping thousands of people learn sign language online with easy to follow lessons, encouraging interviews, and tips on how to overcome the challenges that come with learning another language. 

I do this because I believe that everyone should have access to free quality educational videos that can enable them to learn sign language on their own terms. This is important because so many people find themselves in the need to learn sign language so they can communicate with those that are hard-of-hearing or deaf. 

For example, according to the National Institute on Deafness (NIDCD), as many as 3 in 1,000 children in the United States are born with hearing loss and 90% of these children are born to hearing parents. Many of these parents of course are already working full-time jobs and juggling multiple responsibilities. Having access to free educational content that they can use on their own time is vital in forming of a means of communication with their children.

Of course parents are not the only ones that find themselves in need of learning sign language. I work with teachers everyday that are struggling to learn sign for their deaf students that are a part of their classroom so they can have a direct line of communication with them. Other students as well take it upon themselves to learn sign language so they can communicate with their deaf peers. 

With your support I will be able to continue to make the high-quality educational content I produce available for free to anyone that needs them. Thank you so much for showing interest in the deaf community and both my wife and I thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your generosity.
