I have an M.A. in experimental Psychology and I'm currently working on my Ph.D in Vision Science. I have taught introductory perception classes to both graduate students and high schoolers. I have 5+ years of experience working in a lab conducting experiments on visual perception.

2 hours per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
