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.
