Here are my credentials:
I have earned an M.B.A. (graduating with honors) from Drexel University. I have recent experience as an Adjunct Professor of Statistics and Intermediate Algebra. I have specific experience of tutoring and preparing students (prospective teachers) to pass both the Praxis I and Praxis II math standardized test. I currently conduct SAT math preparation classes (group sessions) as well as SAT math prep on a one-to-one basis.
I am adept in teaching NJCCCS including:
1. Number and numerical operations;
2. Geometry and measurement;
3. Patterns and algebra;
4. Data analysis, probability and discrete mathematics;
5. Mathematical processes;

I am a provider of experienced, professional one-on-one attention. I have the ability to present math concepts in a simple, step-by-step approach that those who are "math averse" can understand. I am patient with students and have tutored students ranging from elementary school age through PhD candidates. I am flexible and will work around the student's schedule. I have successfully tutored statistics over the telephone with no visual stimulus.

Biostatistics

I recently was Adjunct Professor at a local community college having taught Introduction to Statistics for two years. I recently tutored a very worried graduate (Masters Program) student (in a nursing program) to success in an on-line Bio-Statistics course project. She earned a "A" for the course. Also, earlier this year, I helped an Anesthesiology Nursing Graduate Student in her on-line Biostatistics course and the result was that she scored the highest overall average of any student in her class and earned an "A" for her final grade. I can help you to understand and apply statistical concepts through proven ways that I have refined for explaining these concepts in simple, understandable terms.

I have experience in teaching and tutoring the following concepts in discrete mathematics: Set Theory Number Theory including prime numbers and prime factoring Combinations and Permutations Binary code and hexidecimal conversion Game theory.

Probability,

Probability

I have taught Introduction to Statistics which includes Probability for two years at the community college level. Through hundreds of hours of teaching and tutoring this subject, I have developed ways of communicating these concepts in easy-to-understand methods. Concepts I am especially adept at communicating include the following: sample space (decision tree), "AND" (intersection) versus "OR" (union), Venn Diagram and conditional probability.

The following four sections are the only sections that contribute to your AFQT (Armed Forces Qualification Test) score, and your AFQT score determines if you are eligible to enlist in the Armed Forces. 1, Arithmetic Reasoning 2. Mathematics Knowledge 3. Word Knowledge 4. Paragraph Comprehension I am currently tutoring others who are preparing to pass the Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery (ASVAB) test. I am a math specialist who is adept at breaking down arithmetic reasoning problems and mathematics knowledge-related problems for those math-averse students. I can also help with word knowledge and paragraph comprehension.

I have recently tutored students for the math portion of Praxis I and Praxis II in elementary, middle school and high school test versions. I have techniques of breaking down concepts in very simple, easy-to-understand terms for those "math-averse" students. In one situation, I helped a student pass after failing four times prior to working with me. I successfully tutored to Praxis Math 5161 Test.

Passionate Guy for Stats!!

Ira is very knowledgeable in statistics and really try to break down concepts to meet you at your level. He uses cool analogies to make concepts more understandable. I highly recommend 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.

Debbie, 4 lessons with Ira

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.

Danielle, 3 lessons with Ira

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!

Stephanie, 6 lessons with Ira

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!

Robin, 2 lessons with Ira

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.
