2016 Summer Semester
  • I was working as a teaching assistant (TA) for information engineering at the University of Tokyo.
2015 Winter Semester
  • I was teaching graph theory with flip-teaching style in Terakoya program. 
2015 Summer Semester
  • I was a teaching assistant (TA) for first year seminar for science student at the University of Tokyo.
  • I was a teaching assistant (TA) for information engineering at the University of Tokyo.
