All of Edward’s current tutoring subjects are listed at the left. You can read more about Edward’s qualifications in specific subjects below.

American History

I have taught American history for six years. I have been a researcher and writer for nearly a dozen museum exhibits in Texas, ranging from the American Airpower Heritage Museum in Midland to Heritage Hall at Southern Methodist University.

Basketball

I particularly can help your shooting and defense. After being selected all-state at Weymouth High School in Massachusetts, I started at No. 2 guard for Dartmouth College where I played against players such as Basketball Hall of Famer Dr. J (Julius Erving)from UMass, former NBA Rookie-of-the-Year Geoff Petrie from Princeton, and former LA Lakers starter Jim McMillian from Columbia. I have coached in a number of summer camps and also a middle school boys team from the Torah Day School of Dallas for two years. I can help you with rotation on your shot, squaring yourself to the basket when shooting, and how to get free for an open shot using backdoor moves and screens. Defensively, I can especially help with footwork, fighting over picks and switching, guarding the baseline, and taking the charge.

Bible Studies

I have a Master's Degree in Theologicial Studies from Perkins School of Theology at Southern Methodist University, where I also served as a chaplain assistant for five years.

Career Development

I had more than 10 years' experience (1995-2006) operating a career development program for student-athletes at Southern Methodist University through a program I created - PALS (Preparing Achievers for Lifetime Success). During that time, I assisted more than 1,000 students with resumes, interview skills, and job placement (both for summer and full-time jobs).

Elementary (K-6th)

I have worked with elementary school-aged children in writing for more than two years through Wyzant. I helped a set of triplets in writing for more than one year. They were 4th-5th graders at the time. I also tutored a second grade student in reading through the Region 10 program in Richardson/Dallas for more than one year. I am also a full-time teacher of 5th and 6th graders in history.

Social Studies

I have taught social studies for the past five years as chair of the history department at Torah Day School of Dallas. I have also traveled extensively to 36 countries and 49 states and have a vast first-hand knowledge of places around the world and their histories and cultures.

Study Skills

I assisted a sixth grade student with writing and study skills for six months through WyzAnt. The student had significant organizational problems that hampered his ability to keep up with his work. I assisted him in creating an organized binder that helped him quite a bit. I also taught him how to study passages from his book and combine the important points them with his class notes. I also helped motivate the student to study by giving him positive reinforcement and holding him accountable for completing his homework.

Approved Subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam.

If a tutor is interested but not yet certified in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
