I have been privileged in the past fifteen years to teach a wide variety of courses at undergraduate and graduate levels at several universities. I am in favor of using visual aids whenever is possible to enhance understanding of new concepts. My focus is on stimulating the students to grasp the fundamental understanding of the physics instead of just describing it. I prefer approaching a topic in sufficient depth rather than extending the coverage of the course material
