I’m a writer, a linguist, and a scholar. With a background in anthropology and a keen interest in language acquisition theory, I bring a unique perspective to any academic or professional setting.
I’m looking for opportunities to teach not only English as a second language, but the joy of writing composition. Students who are motivated to share their real thoughts and experiences are more likely to engage with language acquisition and continue doing so outside of the classroom. Teaching is not an exercise in the transfer of skills from one person to another, but a shared journey of discovery. Writing is not a chore we must endure, but a chance to share who we are and what we value. The times when I have been privileged to communicate that to students and see them realize that their voices matter—in any language—have been some of the most meaningful experiences of my life.Learn about what I do
