Hello, I'm Oren! I have for a BA in mathematics and computer science from Washington College. I worked for five years as a high school teacher and for one year as a college adjunct lecturer. I have extensive experience tutoring students from the middle school to graduate level in a variety of subjects.
My philosophy for teaching is that it is insufficient for the student to merely memorize a formula; it is necessary to understand the formula's derivation as well as its potential...

Math magician: turns tough math into a breeze.
After a second lesson with Oren, my 17 year old son has never been more excited about math. Again he commented how Oren made really tough math seem simple. I am so pleased that I found a good match! As the lessons continue, Oren is consistently capable of making math understandable and accessible to my son. I am so pleased that we found someone whose teaching style is crafted to fit the learning style of my son. I highly recommend Oren S. Want to add, that Oren is the ONLY math tutor my son NEVER ONCE complained about having to see-that confirmed to me that Oren is a teacher with a unique approach who is not only professional, but brings warmth and intuition to his clients. Thank you, Wyzant.

Last minute AP help
Oren was wonderful at helping our son go over some gaps in his learning for his upcoming Computer Science A AP exam. He was helpful at identifying these gaps through multiple choice errors and helping to prepare for the free write which wasn't covered much in class. He's responsive and helpful!

Very intelligent and very easy to work with!
He helped me understand algorithm analysis and has the knowledge to help with Theory of Computation. Oren is understanding, patient, and detail oriented. Teaching is a skill and his skill level is very high. Highly recommend!

Knowledgeable and patient tutor
Oren has helped my daughter prepare for the math portion of her SAT and has been very patient teaching her and reinforcing what she learned in school. He doesn't move on from a topic until he is sure she understands it.

Knowledgeable and thorough
After just the first session, my son felt like he already better understood his geometry. He was able to ask questions and Oren encouraged him to be honest about what he did not know so that he could be sure to cover those areas thoroughly, rather than to assume he did know.

Knowledgeable and effective
Oren always has an answer and, more importantly, knows how to convey it with clear and effective explanations. Excellent tutor!

Very helpful tutor!
Oren is working with my daughter on pre-calculus. She was having a hard time with probability, and in one session he gave her clear explanations and helped her understand the concepts as well as how to approach the problems. He worked with her a second time on normal distribution and again was able to explain things in a way that made sense to her. She has gone into her tests much better prepared and confident... and the scores have reflected that! Would highly recommend Oren.

Great tutor
Oren helped me understand the issues I was having with my Data Structures class in Java. He helped me debug my code, and was very good at helping me comprehend where I went wrong.
