About Farida

I started out tutoring Middle School students in several areas of math and went on to later work as an interventionist at an Elementary School helping students from Kindergarten through 5th grade who tested below grade level to improve their reading and phonics skills.

After graduating with a degree in Business Administration with a focus in Finance from Florida International University, I took several teaching certification exams to transition from being an interventionist to being a substitute teacher and then a full-time classroom instructor. My experience includes teaching all subjects to a 1st Grade Extended Foreign Language (EFL) class and U.S. Government and Macroeconomics to 12th Grade students, including AP classes.

By being a student for many years and observing my mother who has been a teacher for most of my life, I have learned that the best way to teach/tutor is to bring to the table exactly what I would want in a teacher/tutor.

I may no longer be in school but I am always learning and I hope to bring that spark to my tutoring sessions.

Please note the following policies:

Regarding cancellations - a minimum of 5 hours in advance of a session is needed so that I can schedule another student in your place. If you do need to cancel within 5 hours of a session, the cancellation fee will be half of the cost of the scheduled session.

Regarding sessions - I have a one hour minimum session time.

Regarding on-line sessions - I am available on weeknights and weekends as listed.

Regarding in-person sessions - I have a 10 mile driving radius although arrangements can be made in advance of a session for longer distances. In-person sessions are also available on weeknights near the Downtown Miami area.

Thank you and I look forward to working with you to achieve your goals!

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Business

I have a Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) degree from Florida International University. I also held a 3-year teaching certification for Business Education (grades 6-12). I've also worked with NFTE (Network for Teaching Entrepreneurship) for several years as both a student participant and then a mentor after I graduated.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am currently certified in Elementary Education (K-6) in Florida and have been since July 2013. I have taught all subjects to a First Grade class. I also worked an a reading and phonics interventionist with all grades from K through 5th at an Elementary School.

Microsoft Outlook

I have taken a number of courses on Microsoft Outlook while in middle and high school as well as more advanced college courses. I currently use Microsoft Outlook on a daily basis at my job as a paralegal. I have had to train many newcomers to our office on how to use Outlook and troubleshoot for my job on a regular basis.

Microsoft Windows

I have worked extensively with Windows for over ten years. I have had the opportunity to train many individuals at my workplace on basic skills to increase their productivity. I am capable of focusing on the specific skills that students would like to work on to help them meet their goals.

Phonics

I worked as a reading and phonics interventionist at an elementary school. I have worked with both small groups and full classes to improve the scores of students testing below grade level. Teaching these students included charting their progress and adjusting accordingly.

Religion

I have taken a number of religion courses amounting to just shy of a minor in religious studies. I also guest lectured at my university when I was a student for sessions regarding Islam, including classes regarding dietary restrictions. I furthered my research through my Honors thesis on the Arab Spring movements and their musical, political and religious significance.

Social Studies

I am certified in Social Science (6-12) and have been since July 2013. I also taught U.S. Government classes to High School seniors and attended several workshops. I have taught AP U.S. Government classes in correlation with the College Board.

Web Design

I was a full-time web designer for 5 years and have done freelance work since then. My experience includes coding in HTML and CSS by hand as well as using applications such as Dreamweaver.
