International TAs

International graduate students who become UCR Teaching Assistants not only teach outside of their primary language, they also navigate classroom cultures and expectations that may be entirely different from those they experienced at their undergraduate institutions. GradSuccess provides support for international TAs through our focus on English language acquisition, especially conversational skills, pronunciation, and intonation, and through providing workshops and other resources addressing rapport building, presentation skills, and cultural sensitivity.
