I thought this TA was perfectly designed...The right amount of time with weekly sessions and room for 1-on-1s. This allowed for deep work in bite-sized chunks. It was very manageable for my hectic schedule and to add to our team's workload. I also appreciated how detailed the communication was and how the communication and homework assignments were organized. Very easy to follow... I feel like this has been a very useful allocation of my time and this is setting us up for success and going to improve the way we do business.
