Associate Professor, English/ESL Department








Welcome to the online portal to my activities at the LACC English/ESL Department. My teaching and academic service experiences are described on the Bio page of this site. The Courses tab above lists the courses currently taught. Besides regular, on-campus ESL classes, I teach Ling 2 Sociolinguistics and Ling 3 Psycholinguistics online, both UC/CSU-transferrable, and am happy to answer any questions about those courses.


This fall I am giving a presentation at CATESOL 2015 in Anaheim on the models of collaboration between ESL and English programs in improving ESL student success in English transfer courses. It continues my 2013 and 2014 presentations on this topic as well as a related article published in CATESOL News earlier this year. This topic is part of a broader issue of the academic preparedness of ESL students (CATESOL News, 2014). At CATESOL 2015, I will also be giving a workshop on teaching research writing in advanced ESL courses.


The site’s Research page lists my publications and presentations in the following areas of applied linguistics and ESL:

·          second language curriculum development

·          academic success in second language learning

·          adult student motivation, social identity, and social context as factors in language learning

·          use of the arts in language learning


In 2011-2015, as Chair of the LACCD ESL Discipline Committee, I coordinated the development of our new districtwide ESL writing/grammar and reading/vocabulary course series. If you’d like to learn more about this project, click on the respective links above.
