Using effective teaching methods and one-on-one time with students, I can assist students in making contributions in their respective fields of interest, and expressing their research ideas and theories effectively. 


Course Design

I design my courses for students to get the most out of their time spent earning their degree or continuing their education, produce their own exceptional scholarly work, and learn best practices for ensuring a successful career after graduation.



Learning can be fun & memorable. Why waste time? Let's make the most of our learning experience.

I use multiple learning styles & teaching methods to ensure students gain a deeper understanding of material, strengthen their recall & ability to apply their knowledge to problem solve.

About Me

I have a Ph.D. in Linguistics & Cognitive Science, M.A.s in Linguistics focusing on phonology, morphology, & syntax of language, specifically English & Persian (Farsi), and a B.A. in English Literature from the University of West Florida.

I've taught English, writing, grammar, communication & test prep in Gifu & Nagano, Japan,  ESOL composition, public speaking (presentations), & grammar at Syracuse University, & linguistics at the University of Arizona. I've taught students how to write research papers & analyze literature using various formatting styles (APA, MLA,  Chicago) I've worked with students with ADHD & Dyslexia, helping them use their strengths to excel. 

Currently, my hobbies include starting a business, caring for chickens & learning wood whittling. My weekends involve a lot of baking, hanging out with the family, walking, hiking & watching Godzilla movies. When time permits, I pour over math puzzles & other new things to learn.
