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,

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.
Discrete Math,

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. Linear algebra. (Cramer's Rule) Sample space (decision tree)
Logic,

Logic

Mathematical logic is a subfield of mathematics. This includes, but is not limited to, set theory, proofs (such as in geometry) and model theory. Much of the SAT test includes testing the students' reasoning and logic skills. Over the past 7 years, I have tutored many hundreds of students in developing these skills. I incorporate many math "tricks" and test taking techniques that I have developed through my extensive tutoring experience.
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.

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.

Knowledgeable and great teaching methods

Calculus. Ira was very knowledgeable, patient, and introduced a new style of teaching that was very helpful. He is accommodating and has a great personality.

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.

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

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.

Friendly and Helpful Tutor

Ira walked me through some concepts that are found on the math SAT. He has been friendly and helpful and also patient. Just one session alone helped with improving my score, and multiple sessions helped even more.

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.
