"Math can be fun? Great focus on skill building, and yes it can be fun!"
- Joe, Newburyport, MA on 10/6/14
My grandson was struggling with math. He never learned the basics, so he didn't have a solid foundation to build on. Devorah has been working with him to build those skills as well as understanding the current material in his math class. Many of the drills take the form of games, and that puts an element of fun into each session. With Devorah's help, he is building the skills and confidence to move forward. These sessions have shown results.

Easy to work with to make appointments and my daughter likes how she starts with the basics and builds on them. Very knowledgeable of SAT and ACT prep.
- Christine, Haverhill, MA on 10/31/14
My daughter needed to prepare for the SSAT exam and brush up on math skills. She has loved working with Devorah. My daughter describes her as nice and that she explains things really well in a way that she understands. She has been flexible in finding a time and location to meet. My daughter feels better prepared and confident to take her exam.
"Great first tutor experience"
- Carole, Exeter, NH on 10/20/14
Devorah's style of tutoring worked well with my son's learning style. He would review the materials for a few hours before they met and would focus on those things he was challenged by. She was patient and would really help my son work through those things that puzzled him. I highly recommend her.

Dev is doing a great job with our son. It has only been a short time but I can already see the confidence he is gaining and the stress that is being lifted off of him. The real proof though is that previously math was his lowest grade, and although we have not received his official report card yet, with what we've been tracking online at the school website, it looks to now be his highest grade coming for this term.
I should also say that our son loves the way Dev teaches and never feels intimidated. He feels very comfortable asking questions when he does not understand, and he said she is always very calm and works through things with him until he understands. We will definitely continue working with Dev in the future.

Dev has been great at helping my son get ready for the Math SAT subject test. She has assisted him in focusing on the areas where he needs to sharpen his skills, and presents advanced material in an easy-to-understand way. I recommend her highly!
"Very good teacher."
- Lynne, Newburyport, MA on 1/20/14
We hired a tutor for our son ahead of his mid-term exams because he'd struggled on a few tests for an honors course he is taking, and Dev was able to help him work through the steps and review a semester's worth of material that equated to a couple of really constructive study sessions that are going to help him with foundation knowledge throughout the rest of the semester. He's going into mid-terms with a lot more confidence, and said Dev was great at explaining complex concepts that had proved difficult for him. Thank you Dev!
"Better math scores with Devorah."
- Michael, Newbury, MA on 1/19/14
Maths has always meant trouble for my daughter. Within 2 months her score has gone from a B- to an A. Devorah is punctual, patient and easy to get along with. I would highly recommend using her.
"Perfect balance of knowledge and patience!"
- Karen, Windham, NH on 1/15/14
Great job with her as always. Patient, kind, and encouraging. She really responds. Also loaning her the SSAT book was going above and beyond. Thanks so much!
"Instilled interest in Math"
- Renato, Amesbury, MA on 11/5/13
I looked for help because my daughter didn't like Math and couldn't keep up with the pace of school. She was being left behind. Dev made her like Math again and I catch her making little calculations here and there. Thumbs up!
- S, Newmarket, NH on 10/22/13
We're so happy we found Dev! She has a wonderful calm, positive demeanor, helping our middle school child to feel more confident and less anxious about the SSAT. She has been very thorough in working through various parts of the test preparation, pointing out tricks and patiently reviewing as needed. She has also been flexible about meeting places and is always prompt and dependable. Best of all, our child looks forward to each tutoring session. We can't recommend Dev highly enough!
- Deborah, Newburyport, MA on 10/19/13
I feel so grateful to have connected with Devorah to tutor my son in math. My son has a difficulty learning math and was getting anxious and behind in his math class. Devorah responded quickly to my request for help and has helped him get back on surer footing, both with his confidence and in catching up on the work. He describes her as easy to understand and patient. I would highly recommend this tutor.
"Keeps my son engaged & focused!"
- Lori, Newburyport, MA on 8/30/13
"Miss Dev" has been very patient, understanding and accommodating while working with my 8 year old son this summer. She has spent time catching him up to speed and re-introducing/re-teaching him skills he needed to master in order to succeed in 3rd grade. He groans and complains immediately upon her arrival, but she reels him in gently and he stays engaged and is a willing participant throughout the lesson. She has boosted his self esteem and he feels much more relaxed about this coming school year. I am going to continue using her this school year to re-enforce what he is learning in school so that his confidence and skills stay strong. I would definitely recommend Miss Dev to my friends and family and fellow parents! Always on time and Always warm and smiling!
- Sharon, Merrimac, MA on 8/30/13
Devorah is a wonderful tutor! She is helping my daughter with SAT math and my daughter is enjoying her help!
I highly recommend her. She comes on time and is very upbeat and full of energy! Great to work with!
"Nothing but positive comments."
- Christopher, Merrimac, MA on 8/30/13
We had Devorah out to visit my daughter for a large part of the summer. I was not around during the sessions, but my mom and daughter had nothing but great things to say about the experience. We all feel my daughter will be better prepared for 3rd grade.
"Provides great games to make math interesting."
- Maryrita, Amesbury, MA on 8/5/13
Devorah has made math interesting and enjoyable for my daughter who dreads math and struggles with some basic concepts. After each tutoring session my daughter is enthusiastic and looks forward to teaching me the new games that help her with her multiplication tables. It is a nice change to see her so excited about math and feeling accomplished. Devorah has provided a new way for my daughter to approach her multiplication facts through storytelling and interactive games which make the learning process fun. I wish the teachers in my daughter’s school would adopt some of these teaching techniques to make the classroom experience more enjoyable for the students.
"Great tutor - Kid endorsed!"
- Laura, Merrimac, MA on 8/4/13
Dev has been tutoring 4 of my children this summer - one in Algebra and 3 on SSAT prep. She is very patient and encouraging, especially to those who are hard on themselves and tend to get discouraged. She finds ways to connect with the kids "where they are" and even makes it fun (I hear laughing during each session.) Whenever I ask the kids how things went or what they think of working with Dev they all say she's great. So, to me, you can't ask for more than that! Dev understands what the kids need- for example she did research to find out about the curriculum at my son's school, to ensure she was providing him with the skills he needed to work on over this summer to be ready for fall. She also is very open to feedback from parents and children in order to ensure they are getting what they need. We highly recommend Dev!
- Barbara, Haverhill, MA on 4/11/13
Devorah is definitely a great tutor. She has been helping me prepare for the SAT for the past 3 months or so. I would recommend her 100%. She is patient and explains things in a way that you can understand it. Very willing to help and also provides tools to help make the process easier. She is also flexible with scheduling appointment. Devorah has been helping me in the math portion of the sat which is the most challenging part for me, I have been learning al ot from Devorah's expertise,Thanks Devorah for all that you do!
"Excellent tutor - explains the material thoroughly "
- Kathy, East Hampstead, NH on 1/24/13
Dev is an excellent tutor who has greatly helped my daughter better understand concepts of Algebra that she had been struggling with. She is easy to reach and very flexible with her schedule and time. I would highly recommend Dev to anyone who needs a math tutor.
- Susan, Newburyport, MA on 1/24/13
Dev has been a huge help for our seventh grader. Dev reviews my daughter's school lessons each week and helps with homework so that my daughter doesn't fall behind in assignments. Dev has also been so flexible when we need to change appointments which I have appreciated so much. She goes out of her way to make our scheduling complications work out. My daughter just got a 95% on an exam and says math is her favorite subject!
- Carrie, Newbury, MA on 11/4/12
Devorah D. has been a wonderful tutor for my daughter. She is always prompt, organized and enthusiastic. Devorah makes learning algebra fun, sometimes providing creative games, visual aids and hints for memorization. Devorah has been careful to sure-up the skills that my daughter has gained in the past and has moved on to new concepts with great aplomb. Devorah is a talented tutor with deep expertise in math and I highly recommend her.
