Teaching Experience

Fall 2023: Lead instructor of the course 'Contemporary Mathematics' at the Auburn correctional facility as part of the Cornell Prison Education Program. I have designed the 15 week course for an associate's degree.

Summer 2023: Learning lab instructor for a Mathematics and Coding workshop at the Five Points correctional facility as part of the Cornell Prison Education Program. I designed worksheets and lectures related to simple coding algorithms, basic number theory and probability.

Fall 2022 (Aug’22-Dec’22): Teaching assistant for an undergraduate course, ‘PHYS 4230: Statistical Thermodynamics’ for physics seniors at Cornell. I taught a weekly discussion section to a class of 50 students. I designed practice questions meant for conceptual development and reviewed some of the lecture topics that the students found difficult.

Spring 2022 (Jan’22 – May’22): Teaching assistant for an undergraduate course, ‘PHYS 2218: Waves and Thermodynamics’ for physics sophomores at Cornell. I taught a weekly discussion section to a class of 50 students focussing on conceptual learning & problem solving. Average student evaluation score: 4.75/5

Spring 2020 (Jan’20-May’20): Teaching assistant for an undergraduate course, ‘PHYS 2213: Electromagnetism’ for pre meds at Cornell. I taught two discussion sections of 20 students each (in-person and later fully online). I helped the students solve practice problems in the section and reviewed lecture topics. Average student evaluation score: 4.73/5

Spring 2019 (Jan’19-May’19): Teaching assistant for an undergraduate course, ‘PHYS 1203: Physics of Heavens and the Earth’ : An introductory general physics course for non-science majors. I taught a weekly section of 20 students and helped them intuitively understand simple physics concepts using demonstrations.

The course was designed to introduce students to topics ranging from Newton's laws of motion, special relativity and ideas of quantum mechanics. In section, I tried to explain some of the key ideas using as little mathematics as possible. Average student evaluation score: 5/5Fall 2018 (Aug’18-Dec’18): Teaching assistant for an undergraduate course, ‘PHYS 2214: Oscillations, Waves and Quantum Physics’ for engineering majors. I taught two discussion sections and a lab of 20 students each. I helped students in solving practice problems and designed weekly quizzes based on them. I also reviewed lecture topics every week. Average student evaluation score: 4.77/5
