About ESTER

I am originally from Moldova. I always loved math and tutored math for 50 years. I tutored my friends, my classmates, my children and their friends, my sisters and their spouses. I studied math in Moldova but also graduated from the math department in the university in Los Angeles. I also specialized in special education and I am fully credentialed. I am a resource specialist so I am able to use many different ways to help kids. I worked with kids with learning disabilities for many years. I love to work with students and help them to improve and progress in their studies. I speak Hebrew, English, and Russian. I am originally from Moldova.

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.

ADD/ADHD

As a credentialed resource specialist and a special education teacher in addition to being a math university graduate, I work with many students with Aspergers disorder. I work with highly functioning kids with Aspergers who are able to be in a high school environment. I help them to talk to the teachers, ask for help and try to connect to their peers.
