Excerpts from student course evaluations:
"Steven is one of the best TA's I have had at Yale. He is very approachable and always willing to help you with anything you are struggling with in the class or to go over rough draft papers with you."

"Steve was an excellent TF. I would give him a high recommendation. He knew the material, made the sections interesting, and was accessible to answer questions."

"My section with Steve was really a beneficial supplement to the course...Steve put a lot of thought and effort into grading papers, and the comments that he provided were detailed and useful when it came time to structure ideas for the exam essay."

"Steve is the bomb! He did a great job helping us to not just understand, but to engage with the lectures and readings."
