For the past 20 years, I have been teaching middle, high, and post-secondary students in one-to-one and group classes, providing academic tutoring as well as preparing students for standardized exams such asSAT, ACT, GRE, etc.

I provide students with differentiated levels of study material, analyze their weak areas and provide them appropriate material to improve their skills. I make sure that the instruction is tailored to individual's needs and focuses on student's weak areas. I believe in sending reports to help communicate the value of tutoring and progress reports to keep students accountable and keep parents in the loop.

Elementary Education

Elementary Math

when teaching math to elementary school students, you have to be even more cognizant of different ways of learning and various methods of teaching a lesson. At elementary school, it is very important to understand math deeply because what students learn here is the basic building blocks of the future mathematics that they will be learning. A teacher/tutor has to constantly evaluate and tailor the teaching style to each and every student and make sure the instruction is effective so that the student can strengthen self confidence as well as basic and fundamental math and study skills. I have been teaching elementary school students for so many years and I love to teach them and watch them learn and develop a love of learning in general and mathematics in particular.

Great tutor

Farah is a great tutor and always responds quickly either by phone or email. Also she is always on time and I can depend on her. She takes her time to explain to the student about not only math but also how we use it every day in our lives. She will give examples how we use math unconsciously and how important it is to get to know it. I appreciate her putting in the extra training and explaining it thoroughly. I recommend Farah highly and I'm sure whomever she tutors will leave with a satisfied knowledge of the course.

Caroline, 3 lessons with Farah

Excellent first session for math SAT!

My son had his first math tutoring session to prepare for the SAT with Farah this past week. Prior to beginning the session, Farah was incredibly quick to respond to all of my emails. He began his first session only a few days after our initial contact. Farah was punctual and prepared for the session. My son called me immediately following the hour and half session to let me know how much he liked Farah's tutoring style and that he thought that they had accomplished quite a bit in the time period. He completed the work that she assigned the next day and seems enthusiastic to work with her again. As a parent, this was the most significant piece of feedback. My son actually is looking forward to working with Farah and I know that his positive attitude toward the tutoring sessions will result in additional practice and will give him his best chance at doing well on the SAT. We are looking forward to working with Farah over the next several months.
