About Rachel

As a teaching assistant for an first year undergraduate course, I was able to help my students learn civil engineering topics based in a variety of mathematic and science subjects including but not limited to algebra, geometry, physics, etc. By facilitating weekly lab sessions and office hours, the students were able to practice and apply material from lecture in a more interactive and creative setting than simply reading the book or going over lecture notes.

I have also spent time in two Spanish-speaking countries where I lived with host families to perfect my language skills. My first abroad experience was a gap year spent in Madrid, Spain as part of the Rotary Exchange Program. My second experience was a summer studying abroad in Heredia, Costa Rica, taking Spanish classes and fulfilling a requirement for my dual major, International Affairs.

While abroad I tutored English to students ranging from elementary to high school. Some of these sessions were informal, especially with my older students, and tended to be more conversation based whereas sessions with my younger students were more specific, focusing on grammar and vocabulary.

I have found that inquiry based teaching has been the most successful way for my students to fully understand the material they are struggling with. There is nothing more inspiring than witnessing everything 'click' for a student. I can identify with students because I have been in their position many a time so I hope that my patience and similar experiences can be of the most help!
