Does "Dr. Bill" provide one-on-one or "small group" training via video chat?

QUESTION:
Dr. Bill,
I was wondering if you offered any paid personal lessons or one on one teachings via skype, zoom, or any other video chat platforms?
Thanks,

- Mia

Dear Mia,
I occasionally provide zoom-based (teleconference) training -- but I have to charge "professional workshop presenter" level fees in order to feel good about taking time away from family and/or projects that can be posted for thousands to see. Meaning? If I spend a half hour with a "beginner" (doing the equivalent of a surgeon putting on a band-aid) I benefit only one person. If I spend that same half-hour building a video or online resource it will help several thousand people.
 
Instead I set up a Facebook group for ASLU students to connect with each other for practice or questions.
https://www.facebook.com/groups/Lifeprint.ASLU/
and put out your request there that you would appreciate an advanced signer contacting you to arrange for a "group" visit. You might get lucky. Otherwise you can ask that group to refer you to the group that has Deaf tutors who tutor others for a reasonable sum.

Warm regards to you,
- Dr. Bill
