Graduate Teaching Assistant/Grader

I worked as Graduate Teaching Assistant for International Economics and Grader for Macroeconomics, and I have to say teaching assistantship was one of the unexpected yet wonderful opportunities that I was given at Tufts.

I wouldn’t have had the chance to interact with and learn from the students otherwise.
