Critiques

“You need to get better with the tech ahead of time. We lost a few minutes every recitation because your powerpoint didn’t work. But mostly you were good.”

“Good TA who wanted to help but would sometimes be a little confusing in how he relayed information in the process.”

“Prepare your own material. It seemed like a couple times during the recitation that you seemed flustered and didnt present your own stuff, which i think you would have been more comfortable
doing. I know it was hard connecting to our class, but it seemed ‘cringy’ at times.”

“I noticed that he seems to grade harsher than other TA’s. I have alot of friends who have different TA’s and we compare our dicussion posts with each other and they seem to always get higher grades. Meanwhile I get points taken off for the smallest things.”
