I earned my PhD in Linguistics at the University of South Australia in 2015, where I taught introductory French and linguistics courses in the multimedia laboratory and online. I previously taught English as a Second Language in France and the United States, worked as a Student Success and Writing Center tutor for undergraduate students, and was the assistant editor of an academic journal. I have been the e-learning developer and instructional designer of ielanguages.com, a free language learning website, for two decades. I completed a certificate in E-Learning Instructional Design in 2018, an Associate of Applied Science in Computer Information Systems in May 2020, and I will complete a certificate in Geographic Information Systems in August 2020. I am currently an Information Technology Services extern at a community college.
I am the author of Great French Short Stories of the Twentieth Century: A Dual-Language Book and Say it in French: New Edition, both published by Dover Publications of New York. My audio-visual French Listening Resources podcast is listed in MERLOT, the Multimedia Educational Resource for Learning and Online Teaching. My language tutorial e-books covering vocabulary, grammar, and pronunciation of six European languages, with accompanying mp3s, are available via Gumroad.
