About Irwin


Bio

I'm a retired Engineer who has transitioned to a new career as a tutor. My specialties area math, chemistry and physics 6-12th grade. I enjoy the challenge of helping students figure out the material and problems themselves by asking the right question at the right time. I tailor my style to the specific students learning style. I guide them through the material rather than doing it for them.

I'm a retired Engineer who has transitioned to a new career as a tutor. My specialties area math, chemistry and physics 6-12th grade. I enjoy the challenge of helping students figure out the material and problems themselves by asking the right question at the right time. I tailor my style to the specific students learning style. I guide them through the material rather than doing it for them.

I've been a homework helper volunteer at the Beaverton Library for the past year and have coached my 2 daughters through high school in math and science. Both have graduated college with STEM related degrees and have started their careers. Prior to tutoring, I was an engineering manager for over 20 years during which time I learned the value of active listening. I employ the Covey approach of seek first to understand... which has worked well in both Engineering career and as a tutor.

I invite you to try one or two sessions with me to determine so I can demonstrate that I'm the right tutor for you.

Geometry can be difficult for very good math students. I found it much more difficult then trig or calculus. I help identify the specific points misunderstood by each student and construct examples and problems to turn confusion to understanding. So far my approach has succeeded with multiple students.

Top Notch Math Tutor!

Irwin has been working with my son on prepping for the math segment of the SAT, and math in general. He is a talented instructor who is patient, intelligent, and easily connects with students. My son feels confident about his math skills that he has learned. I highly recommend Irwin as a tutor…he’s one in a million!

Tips and Strategies

I learned a lot from Irwin in my first tutoring session! He taught me a lot of tips and strategies that I can easily remember to help improve my math SAT score. I look forward to my next lesson with him.

Knowledgeable dependable and professional

Irwin really helped our family when our son got in over his head in Geometry. He was able to clarify elements of math that my son was missing at school. With weekly lessons he caught up in math and ended the year strong. Irwin was also able to answer Chemistry questions as well.

Good Skills and Patience

Irwin, did a great job working with my son. He took the time to make sure he understood key terms and properties with the Geometry assignment. My son found him to be knowledgeable and likeable.
