Teaching
Louisiana State University
I was the instructor of record, where I had the sole responsibility of preparing and presenting lectures, assigning and grading tests, and assigning the overall course grade for the following courses.
Fall 2021  Honors Calculus I 
Summer 2021  Differential Calculus 
Spring 2021  Honors Calculus II 
Fall 2020  Honors Calculus I 
Spring 2020  College Algebra: Taught students with ACT score less than 19 using the R2R format. Classes met twice a week for 50 minutes. The students were required to spend 4.5 hours in a tutoring computer lab in addition to class. All assignments were given using the MyMathLab software. 
Fall 2019  Calculus I 
Summer 2019  Calculus II: Homework assignments were given using the WebAssign software 
Spring 2019  Calculus I: Homework assignments were given using the WebAssign software
