Writing center interactions between peer tutors and multilingual tutees; faculty development and linguistic diversity; feedback on multilingual students' writing.
I serve as a Teaching Professor in the Department of English and Philosophy. My area of expertise is teaching English to multilingual writers. I also am a Faculty Writing Fellow in the University Writing Program where I tutor ML students, offer workshops for peer tutors, and coordinate the faculty ELL tutoring program. I have been teaching at Drexel for over 20 years.
I earned my Doctor of Education degree during the pandemic, May 2020. My dissertation, "Negotiating Difference: A Critical Discourse Analysis of Writing Center Interactions between Peer Tutors and Multilingual Tutees," explores how tutors and tutees work through differences in the tutees' writing.
