Bilingual math tutor and much more
I have been a mathematics teacher, mostly in the New York City public school system at the high school level. I am also bilingual and taught HS mathematics in Honduras, Central America for 2 years. I recently moved down to the Hendersonville area and have been debating whether to get my North Carolina teaching certificate. I currently have a certificate from New York State but was thinking about college level teaching instead of high school. I have worked for a tutoring service in New York...
I have been a mathematics teacher, mostly in the New York City public school system at the high school level. I am also bilingual and taught HS mathematics in Honduras, Central America for 2 years. I recently moved down to the Hendersonville area and have been debating whether to get my North Carolina teaching certificate. I currently have a certificate from New York State but was thinking about college level teaching instead of high school. I have worked for a tutoring service in New York for the 4 years prior to moving here. I have tutored all levels of high school mathematics as well as SAT and ACT and other standardized tests. Although I have a Bachelor's degree majoring in mathematics and minoring in Spanish and a Master's degree in mathematics, I also have tutoring experience in Spanish, English, Science, and Elementary education. If you're interested in a tutor who is professional and full of integrity, consider me as your man.

Very very knowledgeable!! Awesome Tutor
Ira actually knew what he was talking about and explained the calculus concepts to me in a way I could understand. Will definitely be meeting with him again! Very flexible as well. Definitely contact him!Aly, 24 lessons with Ira
Skilled and able tutor for my 4th grader
My son really enjoyed his session and felt positive about being able to learn the math that's been frustrating him.Nate, 10 lessons with Ira
Our tutor is patient and enjoys what he does
Ira was willing to do an hour-long hybrid lesson for my daughter (5) and me. We thought she would use the first 15 minutes, then we could transition to more advanced work with me. Before we knew it, Ira and my daughter had spoken for 30 minutes! She is already repeating the new words he taught her. He has a flexible approach to different types of learning, so we are both supported. I recommend him for students of any level.Katy, 26 lessons with Ira
Very helpful tutor
I was struggling in ODE and was in bad need of a personal tutor. I found Ira last minute and he really saved my life and my grade. I in particular was grateful for having the explaination of eigenvalues and eigenvectors as it was the majority of my exam. Thanks Ira for helping me to reach my goal in becoming an engineer.Miguel, 1 lesson with Ira
Patient and very helpful. Took the time to ensure material was understood and reviewed. We look forward to the next lesson.Tom, 6 lessons with Ira
Ira was very helpful and understanding when tutoring me for my teacher exam. He is very knowledgeable with mathematics theories and he helped me to understand theories not taught in your regular mathematics classroom. I recommend him to anyone.Erika, 4 lessons with Ira
Fixing the Unfixable!
Our son was a dedicated hockey player with a history of injuries & skipping math. When pre-calculus came to a head Ira stepped in and did as much damage control as humanly possible. Ira is more like a personal math teacher than a tutor. He fully reflects his years of teaching experience in the way he handles our nearly hopeless math situation with our son.Michael, 6 lessons with IraTutor responded:
And as a result of many hours of cramming with Michaels, son, he ended up making up all of his missing work and passing his third and fourth quarters, and graduating from high school, ready to enter the Citadel.
Very helpful and knowledgeable
Ira has helped both my children improve their grades. He goes above beyond to ensure my children understand the concepts.Kate, 49 lessons with Ira
Easy going and encouraging mathematics instructor
We went over trigonometry and calculus gaps and misunderstandings that I had to move forward in my calculus based Physics course.Phil, 2 lessons with Ira
Best tutor out there!
I really can't say enough about Ira! I am so glad we chose him over all of the rest! Math is a struggle for my son, has always been, and I'm no help because it was for me as well. Ira was able to help my son learn and understand the SAT math that his teachers, including an SAT prep class instructor, didn't take the time or effort to help him understand. My son takes the SAT in 4 days, and he is confident that he will score very high. Thanks to Ira, my son will get a great score, and this will make it possible for my son to go to college. This was so worth the money spent, and I HIGHLY recommend Ira!Angela, 13 lessons with IraTutor responded:
Thanks for the great review. I really appreciate it and will use this as my reference on any applications for new students who are interested in preparing for the SAT.
