I have been tutoring students informally for over 15 years, from GED students to College of Southern Maryland (CSM) students with great success. I have also taught my own three children math with great results. My 18 year old finished his differential equations class during his first semester at CSM. My 14 and 15 year old daughters are currently studying Pre-Calculus, which I teach them four nights per week.
My style, if I had to describe it, would be a hands-on method, using many examples with plenty of repetition. In my years of experience, I have found that math is not a spectator sport. You learn by doing, not watching. The key to math is learning some basic fundamentals, and then learning how to apply them. My math focus is in pre-algebra, algebra I and II, and trigonometry because it is at this level where students really struggle. The reason for the struggle is a lack of knowledge of the fundamentals, and that's where I feel I can provide the most help.
My biggest strength, as I've been told by former students, is my patience and ability to make math simple.

I have been out of the math scene for quite some time and Eli has been there for me each step of the way. As a 38 year old returning Pre-Algebra student it can be embarrassing when the simple stuff becomes overwhelming. That's where Eli comes in, his systematic approach to learning has really helped me understand what I need to do. Anyways.... enough can't be said about this man's teaching techniques. Thanks for the support Eli, I couldn't do this without you.
I highly recommend Eliezer S. to any child/adult facing difficulties in Math. My 12 year old son met with him for the first time last night, and even he was amazed at the instruction he received. My son has faced difficulties in Math throughout this year and told me last night, for the first time he actually "understood" how to do a math problem. For a concerned mother, this was the best news I have heard in a very long time. Looking forward to further sessions and expanding my son's comprehension of math.
Eliezer is very thorough and spends the time needed to assess the student's knowledge and understanding, so areas of improvement can be identified. This is critical to determine which areas in Math he needs to focus on with the student. Spot on tutoring and we are hopeful that we will see improvements in my daughter's math retention, knowledge and eventually grades.
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.
