If you’re overwhelmed, lost, and need support to be the best in your class, you’ve come to the right place. I’m not your average tutor – not only can I help with the material but I’m not socially awkward (yay!) so you’ll find that it’s easy to work with me, approach me, and trust me to make the material less intimidating. Rapport is very important to me. I have 6+ years of experience tutoring, and I customize my approach to each student to maximize success so you’re not getting a recycled lesson. I start by diagnosing areas of improvement, come up with a plan to tackle those areas, and quickly help improve on them by breaking down complex concepts, providing structure on how and when to study/improve, and being your accountability coach by tracking progress. For standardized tests (GMAT, GRE) I focus on how to manage the clock and pace yourself. I also help with reviewing/editing homework and assignments, and reviewing existing lessons/lectures/books for reinforcement. Most importantly, I consistently take in feedback and iterate throughout the tutoring relationship.

I tutor in the following areas:
1) standardized test prep for GMAT and GRE
2) writing (proofreading, editing, structure, tone, clarity) for school and work
3) business fundamentals (financial accounting, corporate finance, public speaking, Microsoft Excel)
4) prealgebra and algebra
5) French language

I graduated in the top 10% of my graduate business class from Duke University’s Fuqua School of Business. I scored 90th percentile+ in all tests I teach, and was admitted to all schools I applied to – Duke, Columbia, and Canada’s top 2 best business and law schools (University of Toronto’s Rotman, York University’s Osgoode/Schulich). I have top/Tier 1 management consulting and tech. experience (Deloitte, Amazon, LinkedIn) in strategic roles, where I fulfilled my need for coaching by leading teams and several corporate training initiatives (1-on-1 an

Very patient, understanding, and knowledgeable!

Fareed helped me a lot with preparation for consulting interviews. He was so patient, I was definitely late to preparation and Fareed helped me step through a lot of the information that overwhelmed me. He also gave extremely helpful feedback. Working with him has been great, I highly recommend him!

Fareed is an excellent Corporate Finance tutor!

Fareed is an excellent Corporate Finance tutor! He is extremely patient, he knows how to explain concepts and practice problems in an easy-to-understand way, he is easily able to pinpoint areas for improvement, and he even took the time to follow up after my exam. It's clear that Fareed cares about the students he is tutoring. I would highly recommend working with Fareed if you are in need of Finance help.

Katie, 2 lessons with Fareed

Knowledgeable and helpful!

Fareed helped me structure my study plan focusing on topics he deemed of most relevance. The tips and tricks he gave me after just one lesson have already started to pay dividends. Highly recommend!!

Omar, 1 lesson with Fareed

organized

Fareed is very helpful when it comes to answering any of my questions about the GMAT. We go through the questions that I have trouble with and Fareed makes sure I am understanding of what is going on.

Lauren , 7 lessons with Fareed

You need Fareed!

I was in urgent need of help on editing a 2000+ words document and came across Fareed’s tutor profile at 8pm. He immediately responded to my message and we started a lesson right after. He helped me correct passive voice, restructure sentences, and reorganize the document. I was struggling putting my ideas into words and Fareed assisted me with that. My document was so much cleaner after the editing! If you need a tutor on business/professional writing and editing, Fareed is THE GUY.

Math

Fareed is taking me step by step through long forgotten Math. I am 20 plus years out of school and I have forgotten almost all of the math skills I used to know. Fareed is great about structuring a plan, modifying it when needed and encouraging me along the way. I would highly recommend Fareed as a great tutor!

Shira, 6 lessons with Fareed

Patient and organized

I am studying for my GMAT test and had no idea where to start but Fareed helped me by setting up a weekly plan and telling me what books I need to succeed. After this, I instantly felt more confident. I had my first lesson with Fareed this week and he was kind, patient and broke down problems in a simple way to understand. As someone who has never been great at math, I was able to pick up the concepts quickly after my lesson with Fareed. Not to mention, he has a friendly disposition which made it easy to talk with him about these concepts. I feel more confident about reaching my target score within these next couple months with Fareed’s help!

Great Writing Instructor

Fareed was patient, offered insightful suggestions, and assisted with streamlining the flow of my paper. I will definitely use him throughout the remaining semester and work with him again.

Carmen, 8 lessons with Fareed

Knowledgeable and Genuine

He really does know all the in's and out's of what the GRE is made up of! He's been super patient and kind with me, throughout a difficult situation. I wish I would have found him sooner, honestly!
