# Teaching

This semester (Spring 2022) I am a TA for two sections of **Math 233 – Multivariable Calculus **and grader for **Math 347 – Linear Algebra for Applications **at UNC-CH.

**MATH 233:** Recitations for my section of calculus meet at 8 AM in Phillips 367 for Dr. Burkhead and 5 PM in Phillips 228 for Dr. Assani. Currently I do not have office hours for either section, but you can always email me. We will record grades in each recitation section for both classes, so make an effort to attend.

In my mind, recitations are meant for students to talk freely about the material with someone who is knowledgeable in the subject, but who is not the professor. I am still (kind of) a student, so students should be more willing to ask questions and voice concerns. A reminder: I am *not* an expert in calculus, if there is such a thing. I’m an expert (or hopefully will be eventually) in my chosen research area, which is quite far removed from calculus (this might be a revelation in and of itself to many students: There is a world of high level mathematical research outside of calculus!). As such, I do not know everything, and I will try to not pretend like I do. Most likely, there will be questions asked which I do not know the answer to, or problems will come up that I am unable to solve on the spot. Honestly, I hope this is the case, as it means students are asking good questions! When this happens, it may be a valuable experience to watch a more senior mathematician struggle to solve a problem.

**MATH 347: **Office hours for this course occur on Thursday 1:00-2:00 PM in Phillips 410.

This semester I am not working in the Math Help Center, but you can attend at any time that it’s open. This is often a very underutilized resource for undergraduates, in my experience.

**Note**: As a matter of principle, I will not tutor students who are *currently *taking a class with me. If you are a current student of mine and you desire more one-on-one tutoring, you can either attend my office hours, if they are offered, or you can look at the UNC list of math tutors and the Math Help Center.
