Elliot Taffet, GS Chemistry

Community College Teaching Fellow

Elliot Taffet is a Ph.D. Candidate in Chemistry, and was a Community College Teaching Fellow.

“The MCCC/Princeton Teaching Partnership Program was an exciting opportunity to practice motivating students from a variety of backgrounds through refined science communication and development of course resources to go hand-in-hand with class material. 

Student engagement in response to implementing certain teaching strategies enabled me to grow as an educator and decipher how best to help students internalize dense material.  This opportunity is a great way for Princeton PhD candidates to gain confidence with their ability to inspire in the classroom and navigate the challenges involved with leading a course for a semester.
