I am a highly qualified tutor for all ages and levels of Math.
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...

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.

On time, knowledgeable, patient, easy going
My first session with Ira exceeded expectations. He agreed to meet me locally and beat me to the coffee shop. I'm an older student and have been away from serious math for some time. Ira was able to relate concepts with applications to "dumb it down" for me and help me understand where I need to focus. He kept the session light with humor. I'm looking forward to my next session with Ira this coming week.

Thorough and patient tutor
I hired Ira for a ASVAB tutoring session, and was happy his ability to help with Math concepts. He was very responsive and easy to schedule with, and thoroughly explained what we should expect for the session and how to best prepare for it. During the session, Ira patiently made sure the student understood the concepts and explained them in different ways until it clicked. He was also very thorough with the follow up, providing homework to practice what he taught, a detailed report of what he reviewed, and also thoroughly answered all of my questions about how the session went and recommendations for next steps. I was happy with Ira's tutoring service, and would happily use him again for math help.

Great First Session
My son was very impressed with Ira. He said he explained Trig and Linear Math in a way he could understand. The session was so good, we scheduled Ira for another and will continue doing so until the next SAT in March. Looking forward to the results.

Pre Calculus: Very high and knowledgeable Tutor
Pre Calculus class: He understands the subject of pre calculus. He takes a very difficult subject like calculus and make a very easy and friendly to understands, just like 1 + 1= 2. He is a very motivated tutor that enjoys teaching all the subject in math from algebra, pre-calculus, calculus and others. I will recommend him to anyone in need to learn difficult math like algebra, pre-calculus and calculus. He will focus in the areas that one's need help instead of wasting time in the areas that you are already proficient. thank yo Ira for make a believer.

Ira reviewed precalcalus concepts with Ryan who appeared to understand the material after the meeting. Some of the subjects covered were graphing functions and functions transition.

Helped me pass the Praxis 5161
I asked Ira to help me study for the Mathematics Content Knowledge (5161) Praxis. If you're studying for this exam and if you're not fresh out of a STEM degree or career it will probably be a challenge. It has been over a decade since I have taken a math course and I was rusty in several different areas. I had taken the Praxis 3 times before, and I had always run out of time and started rushing at the end. I asked Ira to help me get quicker. Our first meeting was intense, he showed me many ways to see patterns in algebra problems that I was unable to see before. It worked! It really helped me speed up my calculations. I was able to finish the test with a few minutes to spare and my score went up about 20 points. I highly recommend Ira for anyone looking to break out the usual way math is taught. During our first session, he told me to "spend less time memorizing and spend more time learning." His way of teaching helped me see connections and make sense of formulas so I din't have to memorize. Ira has given me valuable insight that I hope to pass on to my students.
