Things I learned about recommending students for graduate and professional school

Ways to truly support students’ path forward

Once applicants have accurately assessed their skill set, standing out amongst the crowd of outstanding applicants is surprisingly straightforward and achievable with enough hard work and preparation.


Crazy left-handers can make excellent teachers - my story

Is being left-handed a curse or a gift?

As a small boy, I would pick up a rock with my right hand and then my left, to throw it into the ocean. I remember my father telling me years later that I was trying to figure out whether I was going to be left-handed or right-handed.


Discovery Learning / Authentic Teaching

Teaching is not acting

I remember when the adjuncts were about to go off to class, some would say, ‘show time’. At first, I agreed with that sentiment - that teaching was putting on a show for students. I quickly realized, however, that I didn’t want to be acting when I was teaching, I wanted to be myself.


Incorporating community language learning in your class

A great 4-skills lesson for intermediate level English Language learners

This 4-part lesson plan (LP) is intended for roughly 8 to 15 intermediate to high intermediate level students. In my experience, many English Language classes last about 2 hours, so I’m estimating about 30 minutes for each part, which should provide ample time.


Succeeding with Thai college students

Using Thai teaching assistants and adapting materials, etc

From 2016 to 2018, I worked at a small college in Thailand. Many of my intensive English students came from poor families in Isaan and this was their first experience away from home.
