I passed the FE Civil exam last month after graduating in 2017. I believe passing the exam also helped me big time to a couple of job interviews and I have already worked my first week as a Jr. Water Resources Engineer. I applied before passing the exam for a good few months, but no success in getting job interviews. I took your prep course last summer and I believe it helped me review a lot of the material along with FE Prep for more practice problems, and studying by using one of the pomodoro techniques. I appreciate that you were able to communicate within a reasonable amount of time in your prep course when I had a question or comment. Thank you again, Farouq!”

Learn With Farouq

Hi 👋 I’m Farouq

I’m the instructor and founder of Directhub.

For the past four years, I have worked full-time as a private tutor helping hundreds of students pass their FE exam. Before building the directhub platform, I worked as a content creator, subject matter expert, and tutor for the following companies and schools: 

Having worked one-on-one with hundreds of students, I’ve gained valuable insight into the frustrations and obstacles that many of these students faced before passing their FE. With this knowledge, I decided to address these challenges by carefully crafting this Civil FE course.
