About My Teaching

I try to prepare my students by challenging them everyday in English. In the Intensive English Program my students are working on developing and improving their academic English. I do a lot of small group activities and get students to interact with each other and ask questions. I try to incorporate project based learning and technology in the classroom to enhance learning.

How I came to Teach English 10 Grammar 5A

I have always been interested in language, and when I was studying at ISU as an undergraduate I took a Linguistics course that I found really interesting. After taking the course, I decided to major in Linguistics. I enjoy teaching English grammar and teaching how grammar is used in context.

Outside of the University

I enjoy spending time with my wife and my 1 year old daughter. It is amazing watching your child grow. Going to parks and going on family walks are always fun times. I also enjoy biking and reading.
