I have been working as an educator for four years and have had the opportunity to tutor and instruct hundreds of students. I have also worked with multiple organizations and companies as an engineering subject matter expert and tutor.
For the past four years, I have created engineering courses. developed content for engineering exams, animations for stem topics, engineering subject matter guided educational videos, and STEM enrichment classes.
As a tutor/educator, I have grown to enjoy what I do and feel motivated by helping students achieve their personal learning goals.
Learning something new takes persistence and lots of trial and error. Traditional education platforms do not account when teaching or instructing students, they will simply provide the information without the support. This will ultimately leave many students feeling demotivated, confused, and unhappy.
Before teaching or tutoring anything, we account for the needs of each student and provide the most personalized teaching support by providing the necessary feedback and support we all need when learning something new. My goal is to help every student learn how to breakdown problems and equip them with new tools/techniques that are guaranteed to help them succeed.
Below are some of the companies and startups I have worked for.
I would recommend DirectHUB to anyone looking to take or struggling passing the FE Exam. Farouq was the reason I passed and worked with me for months making sure I knew the concepts and any possible problems I could’ve been asked. He would refine each lesson to fit what I was struggling with and made sure I understood the important things before moving on. We covered each subject of the exam in-depth, even the ones he was not familiar with. He did his research and learned the new concepts in order to help me. Farouq is awesome!!!! Hope he expands to tutor for the PE!

The Year 2020 has forced everyone living in this world to adapt to different environments and scenarios. At first, I was hesitant to reach out to a tutor over the internet and perform a one-on-one online session, but following my positive experience, I couldn’t be happier with my end results. Based on my first phone call with Farouq I started to get the feeling that he really cared about my needs as a student. I was quite surprised, in the past, many tutors I encountered wanted to make a quick buck and move onto the next student, I can honestly say the opposite about Farouq. Throughout my three study sessions, he remained professional, honest, and most importantly receptive. I tend to be very detail-oriented so my questions tend to get “into the weeds”… Farouq was able to shed light on topics where it was really needed.
I was able to relay the subjects I felt I needed the most help in, and with (2) weeks before my test, we were able to have three very helpful (3) hour sessions which proved to be invaluable during my exam. Since it was my fourth try on the exam, I already had a good understanding of what to expect, and Farouq was able to strengthen my weaknesses just in time. What proved to be very beneficial was the recorded videos and slideshows he shared after our sessions. I was able to review and remind myself about anything we went over.
A few other points I found most valuable about my experience with Farouq was his preparedness for our sessions, he tailored slides and questions just for me. I appreciated the extra time he spent answering questions over the phone and via email and text. Communication is key when it comes to relationships and I can attest that Farouq was not shy about reaching out. Even giving me a confidence boost the night before my test.
Overall, I had a fantastic experience and will recommend his services to my colleagues. Whether you are still in college, or (4) years removed like myself, Farouq has the true ability to help.

I wanted to express my deepest gratitude to you and your resources. I recently took the FE Mechanical Exam on 04/17/2021 and just found out today that I passed. I would acknowledge that the main reason for my success was through the aid of your content. 2 weeks prior to the exam, I watched all your FE Mechanical videos and studied the problems meticulously. Your videos were extremely helpful because you referenced the handbook and helped me get orientated with its material. Which was an absolute lifesaver, if I got stuck I would follow your advice and search up words regarding the problem and found the right equations to implement. Once again, I want to express my thanks for all that you do for us aspiring engineering students. Keep up the helpful work and wish you all the best!

Farouq is a really good instructor. He is able to break down math so I understand. He will come up with different examples and make sure I understand before we move on. He’s always professional and never gets frustrated when I’m struggling to understand a concept.

Farouq is great at teaching and conveying the fundamentals of engineering exam concepts. He is a great teacher and is well prepared for lessons.
