I have been a tutor for the past 5 years. At the beginning, I was tutoring to make some extra money while I was in college. Now, it has become a passion and a challenge for me to help a kid succeed in school. I was a tutor in all the subjects, but I decided to specialize in Math, because I was able to help any kid who didn't understand anything in this subject. I was even called the Math Doctor! I also tutor in French, which is my native language, and Hebrew.

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.

Algebra 1

Every student who will study algebra 1 with me will increase his grade. This is almost a guarantee. On top of that, based on my previous experiences, once I tutor a kid in this subject, Math becomes his favorite subject. I teach this subject, using many "tricks" and explaining the logic beyond each concept. By explaining the logic, the student starts to develop more this sense, and starts thinking through every concept.

French

I have been a tutor for the past 6 years in France. It is my native language. The lessons to learn this language are broken into 3 parts: Grammar, Vocabulary, and Conversation.

Within 6 months, if we start from scratch one should start to have a conversation with a french speaker.

Geometry

Geometry is one of my expert subject. Most students have a hard time with this subject because they have a hard time to understand the logic beyond each theorem, and concepts.

When I teach this subject, I explain the logic and the proof of each theorem before to start doing some practice exercise. If the student follows my recommendation, he will definitely increase his grade.
