English Language Learner Specialist
Writing Support Center
I have extensive experience teaching college composition with a focus on grammar. Prior to working at the AATC, I taught ESL and introductory linguistics classes in the Linguistics Department at UC Davis. I also taught in the International English and Professional Program at UC Davis Extension. In my capacity as an English Language Learner specialist, I am available to work with students in one-on-one appointments and in the writing studio, deliver writing workshops in classes, and present on AATC services. I regularly teach Grammar Support for Academic Writing, STEP writing courses, and tutor training; also, I am co-author of the Aggie Grammar Guide.
