At UCLA I've had the chance to work on a wide range of courses which has allowed me to experience many teaching environments. As a teaching assistant I've worked with professors from Sociology, Communication Studies, African American Studies, Public Policy, Society and Genetics, English, Law, and Biology. The range of perspectives offered by these professors has given me insight not only in how to teach different topics, but into different ways of communicating and working with people. 

I've also had the chance to teach my own courses, both in the summer, and as part of one of UCLA's freshman clusters, which is an interdisciplinary program that allows students to spend a year exploring a topic from a variety of perspectives. Here, I've had the chance to teach through lectures, small group activities, class discussions, facilitating peer review, and one-on-one meetings with students. Each of these experiences has taught me something about communicating ideas to others, and facilitating teamwork,
