About Faris

I am native speaker of Arabic. I was born in Lebanon and moved to the USA to attend college. I earned my BA in Economics. Through the years since, I have worked in management, accounting, engineering and I have been self employed for the last 32 years doing custom woodwork and art work.

Teaching has always been a passion of mine and love to help others learn. I have taught Arabic to a unit of US Army Reserve Civil Affairs. I also taught courses in Intercultural Communications, History, Art and Culture of the Middle East. I can also teach Math, World History and Geography.

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.

American History

Teaching to me is not a job but a passion. I love and enjoy helping others in teaching the subject they need help with. My approach is to motivate, challenge and encourage the student to ask questions and be fully engaged in finding the answers and not only given the answers for whatever he is seeking to learn.
I like to teach any subject in a way as if it is a story. History is just a story of people and places that occur in a certain time. I have used this approach in teaching many subjects being one-on-one or in lectures to groups.

Arabic

Arabic is my native language and I can speak, read and write it fluently. I have taught Arabic to US Army Reseve Civil Affairs Unit. In addition I have taught courses in Intercultuural Communications, History, Art and Culture of the Middle East.

Government & Politics

Teaching to me is not a job but a passion.
History, government and politics is one of my favorite subjects. It is a hobby of mine to study and teach. Since history and politics is a story of people and events that take place at a certain time, then the best way to teach it is in the form of a story. I make sure to motivate, challenge and encourage the student to think of the importance of the event first then of the people and the time the event took place.
