Teaching Assistants needed for fall 2019

Good Afternoon!

I am looking for teaching assistants for Nutrition 251 for the Fall 2019 semester. Serving as a TA is a great way to review basic nutrition information while building new skills and earning one 400-level credit (NUTR 496) towards your major.

You must have at least a 3.0 overall GPA to become a TA. You will be expected to attend class, help grade assignments and hold review sessions before each exam.

I am looking for TAs for two sections of NUTR251:

  • Tuesday/Thursday 9:05-10:20
  • Tuesday/Thursday 10:35-11:50

If you are interested, please e-mail me at djw5083@psu.edu.

Thank you!
