Summer camp lead instructor

June - July 2019 • Palo Alto, CA

What I liked

It was a fantastic environment with fantastic people! I enjoyed teaching kids so much and seeing them grow over the summer!

What I wish was different

The only thing that wasn’t ideal was my commute; I had to drive ~45 min to work.

Advice

When offers come along, take them! I was scared of taking on the job because I’m a quiet person and wasn’t sure how I’d be in a leadership position but it ended up being my favorite job thus far.

Science Lead Instructor

June - August 2018 • Oakland, CA

What I liked

It was fun. Hung out with some silly kids all day everyday for the summer doing cool science projects that Galileo HQ designed. Play weird games, sing funny songs, and have a goofy summer.

What I wish was different

Getting to make my own projects or changing things up a bit from the cookie cutter Galileo framework.

Advice

If you get drained quickly this is not the job for you, things are always happening and changing. You'll need to adapt and adjust to a lot of things and be able to keep up.

3D Printing Assistant Instructor

June - July 2018 • Sunnyvale, CA

What I liked

I like interacting with children. I like sharing my experience and inspiring students not only academically but personally.

What I wish was different

Create more activities and group work for student.

Advice

Be patient and try to learn more about your student background. Every student come from a different background and they also learn different, so It is important for us as a teacher to understand our student.
