Greetings to you all! I am a both a professor of EAP and the EAP Coordinator for the Communications Department on East Campus, so please feel free to come to me with any questions you may have. I'm happy to help!
I have been teaching EAP at Valencia College since 2011, and before that, I taught ESOL and EAP at Seminole State College for seven years. I am passionate about teaching and learning, and I truly love coming to work every day.
Like my EAP students, I also have lived in a different country and learned a different language; Japanese is my second language, and I love learning about different languages and cultures as I help facilitate others as they learn English. I also love yoga, working out, binging on Netflix shows, animals of all kinds, traveling, and eating lots and lots of delicious food from around the world. :)
I know that language learning can sometimes be a frustrating process, but I also know that it has many rewards and benefits, so I am glad to be helping students on their learning journeys. I'm truly grateful to be able to do what I do.
Please feel free to contact me or see me during my office hours. I am here to help!
