In my short academic career, I have taught a variety of classes that go beyond my personal research interests (bilingualism, sociophonetics, and language style) into other aspects of the language sciences.
I am currently teaching:
- Special Topics in Sociolinguistics (Fall 2019);
- Articulatory and Acoustic Phonetics (Fall 2019);
- English Grammar and Language Use (Fall 2019).
In the upcoming semester, I will be teaching:
- Introduction to Sociolinguistics (Spring 2020)
- World Englishes (Spring 2020)
- Contrastive (Crosslinguistic) Grammar (Spring 2020)
In the past, I have taught courses on Lexicography (Spring 2017, 2018), the English Writing System (Fall 2016), and Academic English (Spring 2018). I have also facilitated courses on Beginners and Intermediate Spanish (2016 – 2018). I have pursued volunteer/missionary work teaching English internationally in Europe (Czech Republic) (2010) and U.S.A. (Tucson, Arizona) (2009).
My teaching style involves the use of real world examples (particularly, popular culture references). I like to make the theoretical component of my class “spicy” by providing students with fun/tangible contemporary examples.
