The Right Tutor. Great Effort. Great Results.
The job of a tutor is not simply to present the material; rather it is to ensure that the pupil understands and can apply the lesson learned. This requires that the tutor be able to match his method of teaching and explanation to match the individual student's needs. I'm thrilled to say that Ira was able to do this with great skill. Though our daughter had fairly good mastery of many concepts on the SAT Math, she was often missing the "tricks." Ira was able to cut through her basic level of understanding and bring her to the next level. After she completed her first practice test, Ira confidently predicted that he could likely get her score to a 700. This is exactly what she scored on her first attempt. With regard to his work, Ira has been very professional and understands what it means to provide good service. He is extremely prompt at returning calls, emails or texts. We have never had an issue scheduling him, as he was always able to accommodate us. We never felt as if our daughter was rushed; he always took more time than the actual hour allotted and would ensure that she understood what was covered during each session. Ira often used humor to liven up what could otherwise be a tedious process; our daughter actually ENJOYS the sessions with him. At the same time, he could be quite serious, often unrelenting when trying to ensure that a concept was definitely grasped. We were so happy with him that we have continued to use his services as a math tutor for our daughter in Pre-Calc, as well as with our younger daughter in algebra. We would not hesitate to recommend him for any math tutoring. He is an excellent tutor. We are so happy we found him.

Stat lit
Stat lit for undergrad. Repeated instructions. Very patient and kind. Teaches multiple ways to solve and how to check work. Very positive and encouraging while being realistic and firm to promote the student’s independence and growth. Good for college students. Will be using a good bit this semester to get through stat lit successfully.

Extremely knowledgeable and patient Tutor
Ira is very patient and takes the time to explain every detail with very easy to understand and common examples that I was able to associate with.He was extremely knowledgeable and did not just given me the answers. He was able to take the time to explain in great detail the difference between the answers and allow me to come the the right conclusion

Knowledgeable and Patient
Ira made it apparent in the first dew minutes of our lesson why I was struggling in my Intro to Stats Class. He is going to give you the ability to think critically and truly understand the material.

Knowledgeable & patient teacher!
Today was our first session and we worked on fractions and test taking strategies. It was really helpful to be shown a new & easy way to deal with fractions I’ve never been taught before. I’m looking forward to our next session!

Great explanations in everyday language!
Ira helped me to understand some complex statistical concepts in easy-to-understand everyday language. He also prompted me to solve the problems as we went along, to make sure that I was grasping the concepts and able to put them to proper use. Definitely recommend!

Answered all my questions
Ira filled in the missing concepts in solving a confidence interval problem. He listened to what I needed and had the illustrations and examples needed to convey what I needed.
