In April 2020, Jeremy earned the Graduate Student Teaching Award (Eleanor Quinlan Memorial Award) from the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at The Ohio State University for his commitment to teaching over a two-year period. In that time, he taught two courses: Introduction to Programming in Java (CSE 1223) and Software Components (CSE 2221).
In addition, in autumn 2019, Jeremy was nominated for the Graduate Associate Teaching Award, a university-wide teaching award. As a part of the process, he put together a portfolio of teaching documents including a teaching statement, a teaching artifact, an analysis of feedback, and two letters of recommendation. Unfortunately, he did not win the award.
In early 2018, Jeremy completed a 200-hour Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL) and Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) course through the International TEFL Academy.
Through this course, Jeremy studied various topics including:
- Teaching English Vocabulary
- Lesson Planning for TEFL
- Materials and Aids for Teaching English
- Teaching Pronunciation of English
In addition to coursework, Jeremy completed a practicum which involved 20 contact hours with young English language learners.
In 2014, Jeremy was awarded the H.G. Gillespie Foundation Scholarship for General McLane High School alumni based on character, citizenship, and probable contribution to future community.
In the same year, Jeremy was awarded the Case Alumni Scholarship through nomination by faculty. Then, in 2015, Jeremy was awarded the scholarship again following an interview with the organization.
