Why did you become a UTA? I love helping people and this UTA positions was a great way to help. I am also interested in teaching part time one day and this is good practice

What is the best advice you would give to a student who may need additional support? Don't be afraid to ask for help. Also, if you are stuck on something, try to explain it to someone else.

What is the best study tip you have for a student taking the course you UTA for? In CS 0007, make sure you pay close attention to the first few chapters that you learn because that is the foundation of all the coding you will do one day.

Why should students come to your UTA office hours? As the UTA, I am familiar with how the homework and labs are assigned and can give you more direct help.

What is your favorite thing about the subject you UTA for? Since this is an introductory class, I encounter a lot of people who are looking into pursuing CS as a career, and this is one of the best ways for me to make an impact on them.
