Could you use some support to help your child with their math homework? Many parents feel that they are not comfortable or well-versed in math, find that they end up struggling with their child when they attempt to help them, and may feel sad, angry, or ashamed that their efforts are not working. I am a math teacher and tutor with many years of experience. I treat each student as an individual, help students understand their homework so they can complete it, and share lots of fun things about math in the process. I work on Zoom, and most of my students are in the 5th through 10th grades. I would be happy to do a free consultation with you, to find out what help your child might need, and determine if we are a good fit to work together.

After being out of school for many years, I needed a refresher in algebra to help with a graduate level financial analytics course. Jilena responded very quickly to my request for help and was able to give me two lessons- on my schedule - in a very short time period. It helped me get through my final exam. If the need arises again, I'd not hesitate to call for more sessions. Her use of a virtual white board to show how she was solving equations was so helpful. She even followed up with me after my exam to ask how it went. Great experience.

Details: Graduate school • Algebra • 45 - 64 years old • Improve grades at school • As recommended by teacher • At the pro’s location • My home, venue, etc. • Remotely (phone or internet)

Jilena comes to her classes fully prepared, and with a comprehensive understanding of the subject she's presenting that day. It's a pleasure to have a teacher that is so well organized and prepared for whatever questions may arise. She has been an excellent teacher for me because when I get stuck on some point, and can't seem to understand what she is trying to explain, she will put it into terms I can relate to, helping me to understand things more fully. I have worked with Jilena many times throughout the years, and she's been an excellent teacher and tutor. I highly recommend her.

Jilena is a super supportive and encouraging teacher! I struggle with math anxiety and her caring approach makes learning the subject so much easier for me. I highly recommend her as it's clear she is invested in making sure that those she teaches feel supported no matter what, and that makes all the difference in the learning experience.

As a teacher for forty years, I feel that the attributes I observed are necessary for an excellent experience in Mathematics. Jilena Alpert is a responsible, knowledgeable women, who uses her wealth of information in Science and Math to make concepts clear to the learner. By basing the learners queries in reality and leading the student to mastery, she is able to provide answers without “telling” ; this is a major advantage in education. I hope many new students of all levels use her services. They will not be disappointed.
