At the secondary level: Directing Writing Center, English, ESL. At the higher ed level: Writing tutor, introductory composition, ESL.
My teaching style is about building authentic connections and realistic skills. Students develop what I call a "toolbelt of strategies" that is applicable in their lives, careers, or other courses. Students also engage with text, grammar, and writing in modern and meaningful ways in order to see English as something useful and relatable. My research focus is in edutainment (specifically educational television, YouTube, and video) and linguistic diversity, inclusion, and acculturation (adapting methods to be ESL inclusive).
