I offer a background of teaching one-on-one and large groups of students as a teaching assistant for various universities: University of California, Santa Cruz, Otis College of Art & Design, and Goldsmiths, University of London over the last half-decade. I have an artistic inclination but am more cerebral; I am formally trained in essay writing, editing, using digital media, manual and digital photography.

Ever since I embarked on an MFA in writing, I learned a lot more about InDesign through duplicating page structures, layouts, and text/image spacing of futurist poetry. I worked on layouts for my school newspaper as an undergraduate and am currently using InDesign to structure my PhD dissertation for publication. I have tremendous amount of experience in helping others develop their own pages for courses I was a teaching assistant in as well as helping professors with their own books/scholarly articles through InDesign.
The first programming language I ever learned was in C++. I am skilled at teaching people how to make C++ programs because it is a fun, object-driven language. I taught large groups of students how to use C++ for projects they were building before the completion of my Ph.D. in Arts and Computational Technology.
I have taken several courses in programming unlimited to C++, Processing, Max/MSP/Jitter, PHP and Java. Prior to getting my PhD in Arts and Computational Technology, I worked on a few programs that implemented Max/MSP/Jitter. I have taught students several of these programs and how to make interactive interfaces.
My PhD is from a Computer Science department. I collaborated and worked with a lot of different people from computer science backgrounds. I have experience in C++ and my interests fall into interactive web design and Max/MSP/Jitter, as well as social media platforms.

I have a substantial computer background. I can help anyone with email-related issues to Outlook. I constantly used Outlook and understand how to troubleshoot any technical issue related to it.
I am fluent in how Windows operates since I have worked on many projects on the system. I can fix most computer-related issues with Windows. I can also patiently teach anyone how to navigate it.
My role in undertaking groups of 30 to 40 students as a teaching assistant was to help them prepare for their midterms and finals. I am skilled at preparation, memory building and organization. I can help students remember and prepare for information by structuring what is on their tests in an orderly and cohesive way.
