EducationFirst Year Graduate Student in Applied Mathematics at Iowa State University
ExperienceI graduated with a Math major and Stat minor and General Business minor. My major GPA was 3.61 by the time I graduated. With my strong application, I was admitted as a graduate student in Applied Math by ISU with Teaching Assistantship starting Fall 2011.
I worked for Iowa State University as a Supplemental Instructor and tutor for various math classes for over 2 years when I was an undergraduate student here at ISU. As a Supplemental Instruction Leader, My job included :
• Prepare in advance for the session for a full 50 minutes and facilitate 3 sessions a week with Calc 3 students
• Use interactive learning strategies to facilitate student learning of course content & study strategies.
• Actively recruit students to attend the sessions through a variety of promotions.
• Observe other SI Leaders' sessions and complete peer observation forms and co-facilitate sessions with other peer Leaders.
I have taken the majority of advanced undergrad math classes and excelled on all of them, I am also capable of tutoring all undergrad math classes. I loved teaching since the day I started tutoring my first student.

HobbiesI like playing sports in my spare time. I am pretty good at basketball and play pick-up games once a week as well as intramural games for fun. I also weight lift 4 times a week to keep up with strength. I used to play violin for 6 years when I was young, but I haven't been playing since I went to high school, though I'd like to pick it back up when I have time. Other than that, I am thinking about developing some new hobbies such as golf or some kind of martial arts.
