Tom Mathews, Ph.D.

Professor of Spanish. Department of Foreign Languages.

  Welcome to my webpage. I mostly teach composition and Spanish linguistics as well as pedagogy for future teachers. I began teaching here at WSU in 1996.
  I earned a Ph.D. in Linguistics at the University of Delaware. Previously, I completed an M.A. in Spanish Literature through Middlebury College and a B.A. in Spanish Teaching at Weber State. 
  I have taught Spanish in junior high school as well as to high-school and college students since 1981.
