About Farooq

When I was at the University of Maryland I tutored student athletes part time at the university's Athletic Support and Career Development Unit. I was a tutor for about seven semesters and mostly tutored intro level micro and macroeconomics, but also have experience with tutoring higher level statistics, econometrics, and calculus based classes.

I loved tutoring when I was at Maryland because it gave me the opportunity to help struggling students succeed while at the same time helping/forcing me to develop a better understanding of the material. Right now I'm looking into graduate school in economics so I have been reviewing my basic math, calculus, and statistics skills. If you're looking for a tutor it would love to help you out - it would also be a great opportunity for me to review what I know!

I've tutored math classes up to Calculus I in the past. Many of my econ. classes in the past required a strong grasp of probability, statistics, and other math up to the level of Calculus I.
I also prepared for the GRE recently, so I have a good grasp of strategies for applying math to word problems.

I completed my undergraduate degree in economics at the University of Maryland. Here is the list of classes that I took:
Principles of Microeconomics, Principles of Macroeconomics, Econ Stat, Methods of Econ Analysis, Intermediate Macro Analysis, Theory of Econ Development, Game Theory, Econometrics I, Econometrics II, Theory of International Econ

Even if you don't reach out to me, good luck with everything and wish you the best!

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.

Economics

My undergraduate degree is in economics from the University of Maryland. While I was a student I also worked on campus as an academic tutor in a range of economics classes from introductory micro and macro economics to advanced classes like game theory and econometrics.

Statistics

When I worked at the University of Maryland's Athletic Support and Career Development Unit I tutored a few student athletes in introductory statistics. I also tutored two students in more advanced statistics courses.

On time and professional — My son was struggling in Geometry and I was desperate to help him get back on track. I came across Wyzant and after a long search found Farooq who was leaving in my area. I contacted him and he made it easy for him to meet with my son. After their first session, my son was happy to have someone down to earth explaining things he struggles with. Farooq did a great job !!! ...
