I served as a teaching assistant in summer 2015 under the supervision of Dr. Jing Liu

I prepared and led weekly discussion sessions and office hours that review the lecture contents as well as cultivate students' problem-solving skills. I also graded homework assignments and exams, and reported to my faculty supervisor problems of any kind.
