I have taught tutorials at the University of Waterloo (UW) until Spring 2014, and led discussion sessions as well as standalone Emerging Scholars Program (ESP) workshop classes at the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC) since Fall 2014.
Together with a few other grad students at UIC, in the Spring of 2015 I organized the weekly Math and Snacks event for undergrads. It was meant as a very accessible platform for freshmen and sophomores (but certainly interested juniors and seniors as well) to see how math is everywhere, from practical applications to thought experiments. Talks were given by graduate students or post-doctoral fellows.
Every other week I help out with the local Pilsen Math Circle, for students in 6th - 9th grade in the area. This is a great reprieve from tedious school tasks (both for the grad students that run it and for the students that attend).
On the weekends I teach (non-math subjects) at the Chicago Latvian school, to both primary- and secondary-age students. I enjoy doing this as it gives me a complete break from my everyday math environment.
Here are some resources that have been useful to my friends in graduate school:
