Bruriah Boosts Math Learning Through Clinics

The Bruriah math department has introduced a new initiative to improve learning inside the classroom. This new initiative offers specialized clinics to provide students with extra support in math, on all levels. The idea was developed by Rhonda Weinraub, director of Educational Services, with the vision of helping students struggling in certain areas of math. Math Department Chair Shira Strong decided to grow the concept into a school-wide initiative where any student is invited to sign-up virtually when needs present. Strong shares that the math clinics are “so great in that there are participating students on all levels, from Algebra 1 to AP Calculus, invited to stop in to answer homework or test questions. There is really helpful guidance offered to every type of student!”

Rivki Silverman facilitates this initiative, under the guidance of Strong. Silverman is currently in her last semester of Queens College, graduating with a BA and initial teaching certification in secondary mathematics education. She is currently fulfilling her student teaching requirements at Bruriah High School.Silverman’s experience in teaching includes peer tutoring and in-class support. Her passion is to encourage students to embrace math and teach them real world applications for what they learn in school.

Bruriah is excited to roll out this initiative as yet another service to its students as they navigate the learning environment.
