Teaching 

 

I have taught freshman- through senior-level classes in composition, grammar, literature, technical writing and expository writing at both Brigham Young UniversityIdaho and The George Washington University. The bullet points below detail briefly my experience in teaching: 

  • Developed lesson plans, reading assignments, examinations and rubrics for varied levels of competency
  • Helped create and manage an online course; observed and directed the students' online interactions
  • Taught four sections of two classes each semester as a full-time professor
  • Directed and managed the workload of a part-time teaching assistant
  • Instructed many students for whom English is a foreign language
  • Helped manage the technical writing major emphasis within the English department
  • Placed a strong emphasis on meeting individually with students so as to provide personalized instruction

The greater portion of my experience comes from teaching English full-time at Brigham Young UniversityIdaho. Forbes magazine recently ranked BYUIdaho 9th in the country for value and quality of education (click here for the article). Whereas many universities focus a disproportionately large amount of their efforts and resources on publishing and research, BYUIdaho's success and growing prominence is a result of narrowly focusing its resources on providing quality undergraduate instruction.
