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.

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.

Great Praxis Tutor!

Ira is a great tutor! I was struggling with the math Praxis exam I had failed it multiple times and finally I decided it was time to get a tutor because I was given a deadline that I needed to pass the praxis so I could be on track to graduate on time. I needed to raise my score about 12 points so I could pass the test. I had 5 sessions with Ira and I passed the test! I would definitely recommend Ira to anyone. He will push you but he knows your ability. Even if you think you can’t do something he pushes you because he knows you can do it!

First Lesson - off to a great start

Ira has been a life saver so far. We needed tutoring for my niece for upcoming school entrance exams and Ira has so far been very helpful. He has a breadth of knowledge in mathematical concepts so can really address any questions. Further he is thorough in his work and provides detailed feedback on each lessons with conceptual takeaways. Thank you Ira!

Emmanuel, 6 lessons with Ira

Easy to understand!

Ira took the time to explain basic statistical concepts. He made sure I understood the concepts we were discussing before moving onto the next thing. He’s a really great teacher!

Giovanna, 2 lessons with Ira

Fun, knowledgeable, and driven

I had a great time being tutored by Ira. It’s amazing as he sees your mistakes or wrong thinking and helps you correct it. I am going back again. He also uses humor as other people mentioned. It was fun. Which is weird to say. Lol

Anthony, 2 lessons with Ira

Ira knows math.

Ira is helping me prepare for the PRAXIS Mathematics 5161 test. It was obvious from the first words he spoke that he knows his math. I'm happy to be working with him.

Joellen, 11 lessons with Ira

He is very knowledgeable and very patient. He is good with children and young adults. He is funny and has a way of keeping your attention.

He can really get you to grasp the concept by a unique and partly joking way about him. He is kind, caring and takes an interest. He is also punctual, makes things convenient and definitely workable. He is very knowledgeable on the subject he is tutoring and in general. Great job!!! 😁

PRAXIS MATH 5161 (*BANG* 4 YOUR BUCK$!)

Man, where to begin? Long story short...I FAILED the PRAXIS MATH 5161 3 times before finding Ira based off my moms' advice to get a tutor (listen to your mom!). Ira contacted me right away and I read some of his reviews and said: "what the heck, let's do this!". The last two tests I had stayed in the mid 140's. Those of you who are trying to pass know a 160 is the golden ticket. Well, I put in 9 sessions with Ira three weeks prior to the exam. One of the best investments I HAVE EVER made. My main struggle was with Probability. And Geometry. Straight from the jump, he took the two subjects and showed me them in ways that are fundamental to looking at and solving any problem. In fact, I am almost CERTAIN I passed the 5161 because of one of the last problems was a probability problem in which I was unfamiliar yet I heard Ira's voice say, "You gotta be kiddin' me" (in his Jersey accent). I then looked at the problem in the lens Ira teaches and... I totally got it! Ira has patience, Ira has jokes, Ira will make you laugh while keeping you on your toes. At times Ira's humor hurts, but only because it's the truth! If you are ready to (damn near) die for this test, willing to do whatever it takes, willing to look yourself in the mirror and say I need to be better each and every day...then Ira is the one to help GUIDE YOU to where you are GOING in a a TIMELY MATTER. Let's just say I would still be struggling on this absurd test had I not been with Ira. My 3rd test I got just a mere 7 on the Geometry, Probability and Discrete section. Then on my fourth test, guess what? I ALMOST doubled it to 14! (I got 13 correct on the section)...in large part to Ira. Ira is not your "fixall', and he will tell you that from the beginning. He will test to see if you are hungry to learn, humble enough to put your ego aside, and if so...he will feed you until you are full and have you telling yourself get better every night thereafter. Ira knows how to motivate. He also happens to have an amazingly inspirational life story. Ask his about it when the time comes. :) Ira clearly has a passion for helping others and it's not the riches one would normally assume he is after on Wyzant. The riches he desires is seeing people like myself succeed in their Math goals and follow their dreams because of his innate ability to break down mathematical concepts and foundations and use that to flat out HELP! Just do it. Trust me. Trust Ira. Ira is easily worth his weight (no pun intended!) :) Sincerely, Owen

Knowledgeable and laid back tutor!

I have only had one session so far, but it was informative. I showed up not as prepared as I could be, but he came well equipped with a study guide that he had created and it was more than enough. I am greatly appreciative of his dedication!

Lizzy, 5 lessons with Ira

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.
