Hi, I'm Ned and I've tutored kids from first grade all the way through college in math, English, astronomy, physics, chemistry, biology, and philosophy as well as SAT and PSAT prep. I'm patient, friendly and understanding with a broad range of interests that I use to channel a student's natural curiosity into productive learning, increased confidence and improved academic performance.
I excel at taking complex and difficult ideas in math and science and making them easier to grasp and internalize for children and teens across all levels of the educational spectrum. In addition, my years as a professional journalist and writer have equipped me to target and eliminate difficulties or weaknesses in reading, writing and communicating ideas among students of all ages, from kindergarteners just beginning to appreciate Dr. Seuss to college seniors wrestling with Wittgenstein. I am convinced that with the desire to improve and a willingness to work there is nothing that any student cannot achieve.
As a professional writer for over two decades, my command of English is, to say the least, substantial. I have been a student of language for many years, having studied English, Spanish, Hebrew and French at the high school and college levels. In college I studied linguistics, with a special emphasis on the logic of grammar and language as cognitive symbolism. I have a facility with accents, and as a result of my extensive experience tutoring one-on-one SAT prep I have a comfortable rapport with students of all ages.
