Students at Faculty of Science at the university are assigned to study groups with designated advisors during their first semester. As an advisor, I taught computer science students cooperative learning every fall semester for the last four years of my studies.

As a personal teaching assistant, I worked as a long-time mentor for multiple younger computer science students with various learning disabilities.
