About Devorah

I have been tutoring, specializing in mathematics for the past 15 years. I offer math tutoring for students pre-algebra through pre-calculus in your home, at my home office or at a convenient public location.

My specialty is in individual tutoring, dedicating myself to helping students understand their subjects by adding to their strategy base and building confidence in their work and in themselves. I use many sample problems and apply math concepts to real-world situations. I utilize techniques to assist students in retaining their math facts and employ games and other hands-on materials to solidify their learning and of course, make it fun!

I have a BSEE and MSEE and have spent many years applying math to real life research problems. When a student says "When will I ever use this?" I can tell them.

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.

Algebra 1

My Algebra I course consists of a review of Commutative and Associative Properties, Order of Operations and Absolute values; solve for unknown with one variable, distributive property and number lines and Cartesian coordinates; graphing a line, slope intercept formula, parallel lines, perpendicular lines, graphing and solving inequalities; solving simultaneous equations, exponents, add and subtract polynomials, factor polynomials and trinomials, square roots and dividing polynomials, difference of two squares; solving equations using all the above techniques, scientific notation, metric conversions, bases other than ten, graphing circles and ellipse, parabola and hyperbola.

Algebra 2

I have used Saxon Algebra 2 and MATHUSEE Algebra 2 as well as supplementing lessons with Key to Algebra worksheets from Key Curriculm Press. Topics include Exponents, evaluating expressions, word problems, equations with decimals, percents, polynomials, Pythagorean Theorem, inscribed angles, equation of a line, through two points, line with a given slope, parallel and perpendicular lines, substitution, elimination, multiplication and division of polynomials, subscripted values, ratio word problems, uniform motion, factoring, rational expressions... and the full index that can be seen in the SAXON Algebra 2 text.

Geometry

I have taught a High School Geometry level course on three occasions and tutored on the topic for over 15 years. Applying my engineering background, I use many real life examples of trigonometry in my work with students. I am proficient at demonstrating how to bring geometric definitions to life and to utilize them in proofs.

Excellent tutor

Devorah has been a great resource for my daughter who is in honors geometry in high school. My daughter is a strong but not entirely confident math student and the pace of an honors class does not leave much room for error. Having Devorah on hand weekly to reinforce concepts, review tests or quizzes and clarify any sticking points has been a great strategy for her. Dev's relaxed and friendly p
