About Avital


Bio

I'm passionate about helping my students to turn what frustrates them into what they love. My specialty is in finding what blocks your ability to learn, and opening the flow.

My experience is that once the block is opened, learning comes naturally.

I am successful using this teaching method in various subjects. First are the basics - any gaps in math or reading are going to affect all other learning.

I'm passionate about helping my students to turn what frustrates them into what they love. My specialty is in finding what blocks your ability to learn, and opening the flow.

My experience is that once the block is opened, learning comes naturally.

I am successful using this teaching method in various subjects. First are the basics - any gaps in math or reading are going to affect all other learning.

Also, similarly, I found that I can teach the basic concepts of using a computer or smart phone to people who didn't grow up around computers, and feel confused or uncomfortable using them.

I work with both kids and adults who want to improve their reading and understanding, and adults who never learned to read before. (Both in English and Hebrew.)

Do you need help with a special project? I helped ESL and special needs students pass the driver's test, the citizenship exam, learn to read medication labels, etc.

I'm a software engineer by day, but I have been tutoring since I was 12, and my first love was helping kids see the beauty in numbers. I still love doing that.

I am curious to hear from you, and find out what you need.

Note: I tutor primarily online. I find that 1 to 1 teaching on Zoom is a very effective tool.

Elementary Math

Elementary Math

Elementary math is what we all use daily. When do I need to leave the house to get somewhere on time? Do I have enough in my pocket for a donut with my coffee? If you or your kid shies away from numbers, I can help. Math, like anything else, is easier to approach if you don't hate it. Give me the chance to re-introduce you to your enemy. You may be pleasantly surprised!

Algebra 1,

Algebra 1

Algebra is (surprisingly to some) one of the more useful day to day life skill. It teaches us to think of situations and be able to see a picture even when some details are missing. We learn to look for relationships, rather than rely on facts alone. I love introducing kids to Algebra.
Geometry,

Geometry

Geometry works best when we develop the eyes to see relationships between parts of a whole. This is useful both for life, and for understanding the Math involved. I love the light that comes into my student's eyes once they "see".

Great tutor

Our 4th grader has been struggling in both math and reading. Avital S. has now come to our home twice and both times has done a great job helping our son feel comfortable and excited to learn. She has come prepared with lessons that are educational, as well as fun. While staying focused can be difficult for our son, Avital has done a nice job of keeping him moving and engaged. I also appreciate that she is thoughtful in her approach and in the material she is covering. Prior to hiring Avital, she spent time discussing our son's needs and wanted notes from his teacher regarding his performance and where he was struggling to better prepare material for his tutoring sessions. She is very professional, calm and caring while delivering results. We are really excited we found Avital S. She is an A+ tutor!
