Teaching - University of Iowa
I greatly enjoyed all of my teaching experiences during my time at the University of Iowa. While at Iowa, I served as a teaching assistant for a large variety of courses in which I was able to teach many different groups of students including students primarily studying engineering, the life sciences, elementary education, and mathematics as well as graduate students in mathematics.
I was the sole instructor for the following courses:
I was a teaching assistant for the following courses:
I also completed teaching practicums in the following courses:
From 2011 to 2015, I was as a tutor in the Math Tutorial Lab, a drop-in tutoring center for students at Iowa. Here, I helped students with courses ranging from linear algebra to introductory algebra.
In 2014, I led a summer-long workshop for new teaching assistants in the math department. During this workshop, we explored issues new teachers often face such as how to motivate students, how to catch and deal with cheating, tips on how to teach when English is not your first language, and how to effectively use humor as a teaching tool.
Through the use of active learning techniques such as role play, group discussions, and having workshop participants actually teach mock classes, the graduate students in this workshop were able to build effective skills for teaching their own classes for the first time.
