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!”

“…go with him and he will carry you to pass this exam.”

Hi 👋 I’m Farouq

I’m the instructor and founder at Directhub.

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 for the following organizations and companies as a content creator, subject matter expert, and tutor:

For the past 3 years, I have worked one-on-one with many students and helped them pass their FE exam. This experience gave me the chance to understand the frustrations and obstacles many of these students had to overcome before passing their FE. With this experience, I chose to address these pain points by carefully crafting this Civil FE course. 

This course was not built in a day, weeks, or months. It took years. You will get an accumulation of FE content, tips, and strategies that I have personally learned and those learned from other engineers who have passed their FE exam. 

I will do everything to help you pass your FE Exam and become an EIT!
