About Faraad

"My Story/ Experience"

I graduated with an Industrial & Systems Engineering Degree from Philadelphia University , May of 2012. This means I had to endure quite a bit of challenging math and or science courses. From Calculus I up to differential equations each math course created a new set of challenges for me to overcome in hopes of obtaining my degree. From the science side of things I completed core subjects like Biology (which I still dislike to this day), Physics, and Chemistry, all of which were taught at an Engineering level, which basically differs from regular course difficulties by including higher level mathematics ( i.e. Calc, and Geometry). I started working full time immediately after graduation. I am now learning the hard way what student loan bills and rent really look like for a new working professional!

Aside from the extra money I can make through helping students with their studies I like the idea of being able to revisit the basics in math and science needed on a daily basis as an Engineer, to keep me sharp. I can help you get through your difficulties in Math/Science, as I have been told I have a knack for breaking complex equations into layman's terms.


"Teaching Method"

I recently graduated from Philadelphia University with a degree in Industrial & systems Engineering. Let me start by saying to you that I myself had difficulties with the high level math & science courses required to complete my four years in university. The driving factor for me overcoming this difficulty would have to be the study habits I developed and maintained in the latter years of college. My plan for helping you succeed, would be to implement these same study habits in the particular subject of interest.

Personally my study habits always began with reading through the textbook covering the section I was currently being tested on to make sure I have a FULL understanding of the vocabulary and theory behind the subject matter. I can't stress the importance of having a full understanding of WHY we take certain procedures to find a solution to the problems, before we even think of the execution process of formulating a solution.

I would always be the student asking the Professor and or Classmates, "But Why" are we doing this. In my mind I never cared about coming to the correct solution if I could not tell you exactly what was going on in theory. A lot of times you can "crunch numbers in a calculator" and come to the solutions, but being able to translate the theory behind a problem into actual answers goes says A LOT more about your knowledge on the topic.

I must also say that when test time was near, and the teacher gave out a "practice test" or had older tests from last year to study, I would literally review these pages over and over again until I almost memorized the material. So for in crunch time I would like any students I am currently tutoring to bring these materials in, so we can quickly master these questions and move into the next level of difficulty.

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.

Photography

I have been studying the art of photography for two years and have finally began to receive recognition as a professional for my work.
I specialize in environmental portrait, and lifestyle photography. Although I thoroughly enjoy landscapes and product photography as well.
Most recently I participated and won my first photography competition for a portrait session I completed in march of this year.
Additionally my skill set as a photo retoucher has grown tremendously, as I have completed multiple pro level retouching programs and countless hours of research on youtube!
