Teaching and Outreach
Having been raised by a high school math teacher, teaching has always been a big part of my life. As a bachelors student, I tutored and mentored students from high-risk backgrounds at the Russell Conwell Learning Center and led the development of an in-house textbook for college algebra. While a masters student at Temple University, I completed the Teaching in Higher Education Certificate under the guidance of Maria Lorenz. I strive to incorporate principles of universal design into my course materials, and my experience with a diverse student body at Temple University provided many opportunities to creatively apply these principles. I am especially sensitive to students with learning disabilities and encourage an environment where everyone feels free to ask questions and express confusion. I craft lectures with ample opportunities for audience engagement. I employ rubrics for efficiently grading mathematical proofs and have adapted the RVF (Readability-Versatility-Fluency) rubric for a variety of mathematical courses.
