I am an experienced instructor. I have taught at universities and Fortune 500 companies. I hold a BSc degree in Civil Engineering from Columbia University, School of Engineering and Applied Science, and an MBA in Finance from New York University. I took advanced courses in calculus and physics. My Math SAT is 760/800.

I teach mathematics, physics, and finance regularly. Subjects taught include competition math, AIME, AMC 8, 10, 12, algebra I, algebra II, geometry, trigonometry, precalculu...
Both my sons have been working with Ephraim for three years. In this period, he has taught them prealgebra, algebra I and algebra II and geometry, counting and probability, and number theory. He also prepared my eldest son for the AMC 8 and 10 competitions with outstanding results. Ephraim can find gaps and works through topics well, rigorously explaining the analytics behind the mathematics and deriving /proving results along the way. This results in my sons having a deep understanding of mathematics. I highly recommend Ephraim.

My son first started working with Ephraim three years ago to help prepare him for the AMC 10. Since then, my son?s lessons with Ephraim have transitioned to Precalculus and the Math portion of the SATs. Ephraim has been instrumental in both my son?s love of math and his ability to master increasingly challenging math topics. Ephraim skillfully navigates being able to challenge my son, while also providing support in areas where my son needs extra help. He does all of this in a manner that keeps my son excited, engaged, and confident. I highly recommend Ephraim ? we feel so fortunate that we found him!

Ephraim has been a great tutor for my son who is currently moving up to 8th grade, he has prepared him for AMC 10, algebra 1 honors, and geometry honors recently. My son was initially struggling in 5th grade, however, he is now excelling and excited to do math. He is motivated to go to his lessons and enjoys it so much, that I don't even have to remind him to go to lessons. Ephraim explains the material very well and is very patient with children. I highly recommend him.
- Wibisono H. from Vienna, VA
It has been about a year since we have been studying math with Ephraim. Our primary focus is to go over Algebra and to prepare for math competitions including AMC and Mathcounts. He is very knowledgeable about how to prepare for the test and exceptional at identifying areas of weakness to explain things clearly. He always steps through any questions or areas of doubt before moving ahead. My son got a great outcome from the recent MAP test on math and he is confident that he is well prepared for upcoming math competitions. Not only from an academic perspective, Ephraim is exceptional at communicating with and motivating young adults. Ephraim has made the tutoring experience enjoyable and my son loves math even more than before. We highly recommend Ephraim to all students!

Ephraim's enthusiasm is off the chart !! He has lit a spark in my son in just one lesson. Its not just about the material - which he is overly qualified, but its in his ability to transmit the desire and confidence to learn!!

Ephraim is an extraordinary GMAT tutor. He?s the right tutor for the business school applicant who fits any of the following criteria: 1. Values their time and wants to approach the GMAT as efficiently as possible 2. Hasn?t done math since high school and needs to revisit the fundamentals 3. Is seeking a perfect score Ephraim breaks things down so that you understand WHY the answer is right. He?s been teaching math so long, and from so many different perspectives, that he knows the best/fastest way to teach any topic you throw at him. Plus, he?s super encouraging all the time and made relearning math for the GMAT a genuine pleasure. If for whatever reason I need to get good at math again, I?m calling up Ephraim.

Ephraim is the best math teacher I have even known. Having been teaching my high school daughter for about a year. It?s our fortune to have him in my child?s education experience. He?s knowledge, dedication, and passion is remarkable.
- Florence S. from Millburn, NJ
Ephraim reviewed a broad range of math topics with my son. He is patient with explaining concepts with my son. My son looks forward to his tutoring sessions.

Both my daughters have been taking lessons from Ephraim recently. He is a very enthusiastic teacher and knows how to create interest in mathematics. He has a fun and unique way of teaching. Both my kids enjoy their classes with him and look forward to the next one. I would highly recommend him.
- Bipasha M. from Wilmington, DE
I have been relying on Ephraim to prepare me for the SAT (Math). He does an amazing job of analyzing my needs and then works with my to address them. Through working with him I am increasingly gaining confidence that will achieve my SAT goals of stick the program Ephraim has outlined for me.
- Jaskehar S. from Salida, CA
Ephraim is very organized and responsive, he took the time to find details and information that he would need to help my son be successful during the tutoring and in my son's math class, as well as competition math. My 12-year-old son enjoyed his first lesson and found the time spent with Ephraim extremely helpful. My son is looking forward to the next lesson with Ephraim.
- Patricia C. from North East, MD
I have been using Mr. Ephraim weekly for my daughters? math tutoring needs. One is an advanced math student and the other is slightly above grade level. He fills the gap between their school lessons and where they need to be to be competitive with other ambitious students. He is patient, kind and conveys a genuine love of teaching mathematics. I can?t wait until my son is old enough for Mr. E. in a couple of years! He is a refreshing change from the uni. student math tutors, who tend to be fine for cramming for an upcoming test but aren?t up for giving a deeper treatment of math topics.
- Chris G. from Winter Garden, FL
Ephraim is very kind and nice. He was able to identify my weaknesses and help me understand how I can go about overcoming them. I really appreciated his help. I definitely recommend and will use him to tutor me again!
- Lindsey T. from Issaquah, WA
Who better to tutor a future engineer than an engineer who offers tutoring tailored to the student. His friendly and outgoing personality motivates my student to want to do well. He makes a point to discover the students strengths and weaknesses and strives to fill in the gaps, so the student has a full understanding of the material. The white board is an excellent tool to see what the student is reviewing online. I could never find a tutor of Ephraim's caliber in our small town.
- Lisa A. from Columbia, SC
Generous with his time. Exercises great insight and patience for hard subject matter. He provides both the 30,000 foot view of a subject as well as the minute details with seamless command.
- Ross B. from Orlando, FL
Ephraim is teaching me different ways to do business math problems that make it easier for my work environment. This covers a basic understanding of currency fluctuations. He is able to explain it multiple ways and is very patient with my questions.
- Rebecca P. from Conroe, TX
He spoke with me before the lesson trying to understand where I was having problems. After that, he planned the sessions accordingly and it has been very good. He is patient and knowledgeable.
- Zelia D. from New York, NY
Ephraim is knowledgeable and really helped my high school daughter with AP physics. We weren't sure how a online tutor would go but it worked out very well! So nice that she could work at home in the comfort of her own home with a busy schedule. Ephraim explained everything to her in such a clear manner that she got it!
- Ingrid W. from West Des Moines, IA
I enjoyed working with Ephraim very much. He was helpful and took the time to make sure I understood all of the problems that he was going over.
- Adam D. from Oxford, OH
