Listed below are the courses I taught as a teaching assistant during grad school at Stanford University.

 

CHEM 36: Organic Chemistry Lab I

The first organic chemistry laboratory course in the chemistry undergraduate coursework at Stanford. This course consists of two parts: the lecture treats theory, and the lab provides practice. Different techniques for separation of organic compounds are taught in this 10-week long lab course, including distillation, crystallization, extraction and chromatographic procedures. I worked as a TA and a lab section leader for CHEM 36 in the spring quarter of 2009 Р2010 academic year. Course Evaluation for my teaching can be found here.

CHEM 130: Organic Chemistry Lab II

CHEM 130 is the follow-up lab course after completing CHEM 36. More advanced organic synthesis and purification skills are taught, including Diel-Alder reaction, reduction reaction and Wittig reactions. Qualitative analyses of organic compounds using NMR and GC-MS are also involved. I worked as a TA and a lab section leader for CHEM 130 in the winter quarter of 2009 – 2010 academic year. Course Evaluation for my teaching can be found here.

CHEM 31A: Chemical Principles I

The first of a series of introductory undergraduate chemistry courses offered by the Stanford Chemistry Department. This course is devoted to building fundamental chemistry lab skills and gaining basic knowledge of chemistry. I worked as a TA for CHEM 31A in the fall quarter of 2009 – 2010 academic year.

CHEM 277: Materials Chemistry and Physics

This graduate-level course is centered around symmetry and group theory in discussions of structures and properties of solid-state crystalline materials. Crystal structures, synthesis methods and characterization techniques of many solid-state materials and nanostructures are covered in this class. In addition, chemical applications of group theory in solids and solid-state quantum mechanics are taught in this course. I worked as the advanced TA for this class in the fall quarter of 2012 – 2013 academic year.
