The winter break is a time for holiday fun with family and friends - but it's also a great time to prepare for final exams!
This past academic year, I worked as a teaching assistant for Calculus at the University of Maryland. I am also currently a graduate student and teaching assistant in the Economics department at the University of Maryland. Students generally have a trepidation about math, and this is often times one of the largest impediments to their learning.
I taught the first semester of calculus in the fall, and the second semester in the spring. Each day, I fell more in love with my students and with the art of teaching. I became devoted to them, structuring lesson plans based upon their interests and offering them personalized meeting times apart from my office hours. A few of my students stayed with me the entire year, and it was an incredible experience to watch them grown and learn more about math.
The previous year, I worked as a tutor for the Academic Career and Support Unit at the University of Maryland, where I taught the introductory math courses (through linear algebra, including statistics), writing, and economics. I also speak French, and have tutored in reading, writing, and speaking in French at the middle and high school level. I have cared deeply about each one of my students in the past, and I know I will continue to do so in the future.
