Graduate Teaching Assistant Interview

Graduate Teaching Assistant

I applied online and interviewed at University of Missouri.

Interview Details In math department, since they need lots of people to teach, you basically just need to show them that you have the ability to teach. There are basically just one part in the interview process: mini teaching demo. You need to prepare for a 10 to 15 mins presentation for college algebra level material. You don't have to finish all the stuff they give you (they will email you the material 1 to 2 weeks ahead of time.) just go as slow and as detailed as possible.

Interview Question – Not so much. Just pretend you are a good elementary school teacher   Answer Question
