Since the interest rate is compounded monthly, then you have:

\$3,300 x 2.044% =\$67.45 Interest charge at the end of the first month.

\$3,300 + \$67.45 =\$3,367.45 Principal + interest at the end of the first month.

\$3,367.45 x 2.044% =\$68.83 Interest charge at the end of the second month.

\$3,367.45 + \$68.83 =\$3,436.28 Interest + principal at the end of the second month.

\$3,436.28 x 2.044% =\$70.24 Interest charge at the end of the third month.

\$3,436.28 + \$70.24  =\$3,506.52 Principal + interest at the end of the third month.
