Who does the training?

Green Door Auslan has a number of tutors available throughout Australia. You can opt for a regular tutor or have rotating tutors.

One advantage of having rotating tutors is that you can improve your Auslan skills in both signing and reading back with different people and in different styles.


We ensure our tutors are competent in Auslan and have experience in teaching Auslan. We aim to match your starting level with an appropriate tutor and may introduce you to other tutors as you progress in your training.
