Nice to meet you
I am Clara Nguyễn, a Graduate Teaching Assistant at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville currently studying for a Master's Degree in Computer Science. I am working under the incredible Dr. Bradley T. Vander Zanden. I started as a teaching assistant in Fall 2016. On this site, I will provide examples and hints to your current lab assignment to give you that push needed to succeed. This site will have most of the resources I utilized during those lab sessions as well, so students won't miss out.
These are the courses I have TA'd for. Click a box to go to its respective page.
Over my time at UTK, I've won a few awards for my contributions as TA. Here they are. Moving your mouse over an award will provide more details on it.

Pictures with my students
Each semester (starting from Fall 2017), I ask students during the final lab session if they want to take a picture with me outside near the Min H. Kao building (Students who choose not to, instead, stay and read the final lab writeup). Click the pictures below to view them in their full resolution.
