My ten years of teaching experience began in 2003, when I began working for the
University of Virginia Athletics Department tutoring athletes in Calculus.
For the two years before I started at UC Berkeley I was a faculty member at Woodberry Forest, a private boarding school in central Virginia, where I taught AP Physics B and research, general, and freshman physics; and at the Yinhatil Nab'en (“Seeds of Knowledge”) School in San Mateo Ixtatán, Huehuetenango, Guatemala, a small town in the northwestern Mayan highlands, where I taught math, physics, and music.
As a graduate student in the UC Berkeley Astronomy Department, I have served as a graduate student instructor for both Astronomy 7A (introductory astronomy for majors) and Alex Filippenko’s popular Astronomy C10 (for non-majors), and have tutored 20 Bay Area high school students in physics, math, and Spanish.
In the fall of 2010, I co-organized a course entitled “Radio 101: Everything You Ever Wanted to Know about the Basics of Radio Astronomy, but Were Afraid to Ask.” Radio 101 was a graduate-student-led seminar designed to familiarize interested graduate students with the fundamentals of radio astronomy.
