My academic experience includes appointments at Purdue University Northwest (Adjunct Instructor) Alfaisal University in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (Professor of Physics), the University of Illinois at Chicago, and the United Arab Emirates University, Al-Ain. I have taught introductory physics courses to science and non-science majors for more than 12 years.

My research career includes a two-year Post –Doctoral Fellowship at the Naval Research Laboratory in Washington DC, a five year position as a member of the technical staff of Lucent Technologies in Illinois, and a three year position at Wizdom Systems Incorporated, a private sector consulting and contract research firm based in Naperville Illinois.
In October of 2008, I began a challenging position to teach physics to engineering, business and life sciences students in the newly established Alfaisal University located in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.

There were a number of challenges at Alfaisal University, which I successfully overcame. In addition to designing the “traditional” engineering and life sciences courses, there was the challenge of designing physics courses to business majors, who are traditionally fearful of physics.

Teaching Saudi students who come from an authoritarian learning environment and who do not have a culture of reading has also been a challenge. This caused me to develop a number of different approaches to get the students motivated, and to become independent learners. One such approach was a one-on-one tutorial system to identify and encourage the unique learning passions and abilities of the students.
I have taught students of diverse backgrounds previously at the University of Illinois at Chicago, but have honed my skills in this area over the past 5 years. At Alfaisal University there are students not only from Saudi Arabia, but also from Egypt, Jordan, Palestine, Syria, Somalia, India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, the United States and Canada. I believe this experience will be a great asset in one-to-one tutoring.

Great tutor

Hisham has taught physics in several schools, post secondary. He is very knowledgeable about physics. You will not be sorry you hired him. Hisham has many degrees and is very eager to help you learn physics. He has taught my particular physics at Purdue and at Moraine Valley.
