  Summary
 
  Intermediate and secondary classes’ teacher since 2001. With experience in introducing the subject from different points of view that gain interest, and integrating the theoretical study with the experimental work, thanks to my experience in laboratory equipment and how to implement them in teaching physics. My approach to teaching Physics is to guide the student to discover rather than just receive the information. Excellent credentials and background in teaching all grades from grade 7 up to grade 12 (Lebanese and American curricula).
