I love teaching. UIC gives me this opportunity to find my favorite job.
Teaching Assistant (Current Employee) – Chicago, IL – February 20, 2014
As a TA, I am also a PhD student. I have to spend some time in my learning. But I enjoy my teaching job. I give students discussion sessions on Tuesdays and Thursdays, I also need to grade their quizzes and exams, and record their scores. I like discussion sessions the best, my students and I have positive and active interactions. Sometimes, when I made more efforts to explain, my students got more confused. I was very upset about that. Fortunately, I got ideas from my students, and I realized many details that I didn't pay attention at first. For example, My teaching should be consistent with their professor's teaching, I shouldn't skip too many algebra steps. I hope I can have a job of teaching after I graduate from UIC.

Graduate Research Assistant (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – February 21, 2018
I was grateful to earn a competitive graduate research assistantship. This benefit pad for my second year of graduate school and allowed me to add enough credits to also earn an additional certification. The University sometimes suffers delay in processing payments which can impact paying tuition. It is important to prove to professors that you are responsible and will work hard for the assistantship.
