About Farah

Hi,

I am a teacher and student of economics: I have a graduate degree in the discipline, and I have recently been teaching college-level economics to a class of 77 undergraduates. Teaching is something I have found that I love, and I am now seeking opportunities to tutor and teach when I can. Besides economics, I also have a background in business, mathematics and statistics, so I am interested in tutoring for these subjects as well.

My approach to teaching has been to bring the lesson to the level of the student. I believe in developing a natural interest in the subject rather than force-feeding concepts, and in calling out to the student to figure out how they could use the knowledge. For example, as a Microeconomics teacher, I introduce my students to more complicated quantitative parts of the course by giving them real life examples and simplifying details to only concepts. I then couple it up with the math part of the problem so that they can make a connection between a concept and its mathematical expression. In tutoring high school statistics too, I allowed my student to understand why mean and standard deviation are so useful in the real world and how far their applicability goes.

I am an adaptable and understanding person. I come from a different part of the world, which has made me sensitive to cultural and personality traits. It also enhanced my communication skills as I mastered my second language. That being said, I have done my high school from the US, so I have a good idea about the expectations and practices of an American classroom.

Coming from a business background, I have worked in teams and resolved conflicts. This has made me patient and respectful when it comes to dealing with students having diverse abilities and personalities. I believe humility is a major trait when it comes to teaching and I practice it as a principle.

Please feel free to reach out to me here. I am currently available only for online lessons at your time. I look forwarding to working with you soon.

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.

Marketing

I was a business major in my undergrad and took a variety of courses in and related to marketing. Three of the major courses I took were Principles of Marketing, Marketing Issues in Pakistan and Methods in Business Research. I have conducted market research at an academic level, developed marketing plans and have also written an extensive case study on the growth strategy of a brand. Managerial policy was another course where I studied business strategy through case studies and discussion- these also incorporated marketing concepts.
