Dan is an enthusiastic teaching assistant who goes above and beyond to help students. Despite a heavy schoolwork load, he cuts into his free time to come up with new teaching methods and hold extra review sessions. He allows students to email him at all hours; his answers are always thorough and instantaneous. In addition to providing help for Organic Chemistry, Dan would offer assistance in any other subject he could."After I read what the students wrote on the comments for this competition, I learned a lot about myself and it has helped me to know that I was meant to teach," stated Coiro. "I feel great to know that I made a difference in students' lives in a positive way." CengageBrain has elected to sponsor this scholarship to help illustrate the importance of the hard-working teaching assistants that facilitate higher learning.
