Teaching

I am a Lecturer at UC Riverside, where I have taught Syntax, Morphology and Semantics. During Fall 2020, I am teaching Language and the Brain.
At UIUC, I taught LING 210 ‘Language History’, from Fall 2013 to Spring 2015.
I was the Teaching Assistant for LING 301 (Spring 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015) and LING 307 (Fall 2012, Fall 2013). I also worked with several undergraduate students as research assistants for independent study credit.

I have also organized a weekly Beginners Research Group for undergraduates and beginning graduate students to discuss research projects and weekly themes such as research methodology or how to submit to and present at a conference. Research Group webpage

In addition to my experience in the classroom, I have completed a Graduate Teacher Certificate through the Center for Innovation in Teaching and Learning, UIUC, April 2015.

I am an official tutor for the EPI (English Proficiency Interview, a test for international TAs) via the Center for Teaching Excellence (Fall 2010-present).

Beyond academia, I spent three months during the summer of 2011 as a volunteer teaching English in a public elementary school in Machala, El Oro, Ecuador.
