Effie Chiu has been teaching at SJSU since 2008, when she completed her MA in TESOL through the LLD department. As a "homegrown" lecturer, she has deepened her experience in the areas of academic literacy, teaching to students of diverse backgrounds, and online curriculum development. In her free time, she enjoys adventure traveling on a budget. Her favorite landscapes are deserts and mountains, but she enjoys cities as well. A few of her favorite places on earth are the Eastern Sierras, Patagonia, Madrid, and Taipei.
