TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I've taught transitional studies (or sometimes called developmental studies) for about 5 years. I have taught mostly math and writing. I have also taught research writing on the university level and grammar on both university and community college level. Many of the materials I make will be geared toward college-prep. My work in transitional studies tends to be the equivalent of 6th-12th grade material in both math and ELA. I also taught ELA for an after-school and summer program at a local middle school. I have tutored ELLs and have done independent research on instructing ELLs on writing (how to overcome interference from their first language).

MY TEACHING STYLE

I'm big on student-led project-based learning. I like for my students to discover the material. I like to keep things open so they are willing to risk failure. I try to guide them through the discovery process without leading them.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

BS: Math and Computer Science MLA: English MA: Linguistics (research project on overcoming primary language interference in writing for ELLs)

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I spent a year in the corporate world as programmer and then realized that life was not for me. I then switched from math into English where I discovered linguistics. I haven't looked back since!
