I taught 3 sections of Pre-Calculus and 2 sections of Bridge 2 Algebra. The main unit I taught developed an intensive modeling unit around population growth and decay to relate exponential and logarithmic functions. Developed strong relationships and acted as a mentor to many students in these classes.
I worked on the Flipped French curriculum project at Northwestern University to develop an online platform for French instruction in second year language classes. I was responsible for creating the pronunciation component, stemming from my honors thesis in evaluating and suggesting methods of teaching pronunciation in language classes at a university level. I created twelve modules with explanations and exercises targeting specific difficulties anglophones in particular have with the French language.
I taught different levels of math and chemistry classes to students entering 7th, 8th and 9th grade over 4 summers. I organized end-of-summer events for students, parents and sponsors of the programs. In addition, I coordinated and mentored six new teachers teaching a class on high school preparedness.
I tutored students, mostly in the beginning and intermediate level French classes but also some advanced level classes, working with conversations, grammar points and phonetics.
I worked on this as part of a study abroad internship program in Belgium: Assisted the Program Coordinator in managing the website, survey data and logistical planning of field trips for students coming from different parts of Europe to Belgium.
This was part of a study abroad internship program I did in Belgium. I assisted in math, French as a foreign language and English for French speakers classes and wrote a thirty page thesis in French on a comparison of values of the French and American education systems.
I worked with a partner to facilitate a brown bag discussion with professors and graduate students at Northwestern on how to better utilize discussion section times, based on research and a focus group we conducted.
I assisted the Executive Director by preparing research briefs on the train-the-trainer model for their expansion plans and took field notes and presented on how community based organizations play a role in education.
I was a teaching assistant in an Integrated Advanced Math class to gifted youth. I taught a few lessons as well as helped in small group settings.
