I have been teaching since I was an undergraduate physics student. After becoming the best student in my undergraduate electromagnetism course, the class instructor suggested I start tutoring electromagnetism to others. Since then, I have been continuously teaching. I taught Electromagnetism lab for two semesters during my M.Sc. degree at Sharif University and I got the best teaching assistant award of the Physics Department. Therefore, my main teaching experiences as well as interests are in Electricity and Magnetism.
During my Ph.D. degree at Arizona State University, I have been the teaching assistant for the General Physics Lab (PHY114: focusing on Electromagnetism) for four consecutive semesters. Additionally, I taught University Physics Lab (PHY 122) for one summer session to engineering students. Also, I tutored students on Physics 101 Newtonian mechanics.
After all these years of teaching, I became significantly skillful in explaining theoretical and experimental physics. To demonstrate my teaching skills, I teach the General Physics lab course mostly to non-physics major students including biochemistry, chemistry and biomedical engineering. Therefore, my current teaching load requires a strong ability to make difficult physics concepts understandable for students without nearly any physics background. I am patient when I am explaining physics concepts and I draw pictures and use details of the question to solve that.
Based on my experience of my graduate and undergraduate studies I am confident that I can teach physics in a simple and understandable way.
