During the fall term of 2014, I teach particle physics at Birzeit University, West Bank, Palestine.

During the academic year 2013-2014, I tutored first year physics students in mechanics, electromagnetism, and special relativity at St John's College. I also gave tutorials for second year physics students in electromagnetism and optics.
