In my final year of my B.Sc I was a first year chemistry TA. This job allowed me to understand how to properly communicate to students, and tailor my teaching strategies to ensure that every one of my students was able to understand the concepts, and succeed in the class. For the past five years I have been a volunteer and paid tutor in (high school) chemistry, calculus, statistics, and (university) organic chemistry, first year chemistry, and into to biochemistry.
As a recent Biochemistry graduate I am feel that my grasp on the important concepts of chemistry is very current. In my fourth year I was a first year chemistry laboratory instructor and teaching assistant. This job required me to lead a biweekly three hour lab, mark assignments and explain the topics that my students were investigating.
