"Extremely Professional and Approachable! "
Sharon from Barrington, IL
Ed has now tutored my son for over a year. It can be difficult if the student is reluctant to work with a tutor, but Ed has made it incredibly easy and pleasant for all involved. My son has always had a positive reaction to working with Ed and it helps his confidence immensely to be able to ask any question in a safe an nonjudgemental environment. Ed has tutored my son in AP Statistics, AP Physics, and Pre-Calc. Ed is professional, prompt, and flexible. All in all, a great experience.

Our son is graduating with his Engineering degree next week. We didn't always think this day would come!
Two years ago he was struggling with a required engineering class. His classmates were dropping it and he wanted to also. With the cost of an extra semester (or year!) of college in mind, we decided to hire a tutor. That's when we found WyzAnt and Ed. Ed was able to pinpoint the problems right away and help him with just a few sessions. Our son went on to pass the class. Since it worked so well, he continued with Ed for the next two years, meeting with him for a few hours a week to go over homework and study for exams. Yesterday was his final session as he finishes up his finals and prepares for graduation.
Ed is an excellent tutor and mentor. He's very knowledgeable and always prepared for the session (he asks for homework prior to session so he can review it). He's also very patient, friendly, and easy to reach. We're so glad that we found him!
Thank you Ed!
"Helped me prepare for the Illinois TAP test!"
Gina from South Elgin, IL
Edward was very patient and extremely helpful in assisting me prepare for the Illinois Test of Academic Proficiency (TAP). This test is statistically difficult to pass, and I was successful with the math tutoring from Edward. He came prepared for each lesson and provided with me with additional resources. Young or old, I would highly recommend his services!

With his help I gained confidence and started to participate more in class! Ed is very patient and is the best!!
Marianna from Palatine, IL
Ed was very patient and knew the subject well, I got help primarily with Calc 3 and Physics. He answered all my questions very well and did a great job of explaining it in a way I would understand. I am very grateful for Ed's help. I would definitely recommend him to my friends.
"Ed P, not just any tutor!"
Joy from Barrington, IL
Just wanted to leave this note about Ed. He is working with my daughter who struggles with ADHD, so learning is not easy for her. Although she will never excel in Math, I believe Ed is a great tutor and has helped with her insecurities about learning.
Ed has not only worked hard with her, but has provided guidance for me to follow up with her tutoring to help make her successful in this college level math class. Although she is returning to school to complete the class, he has provided me with advice to continue and reinforce her learning.
Many thanks to Ed, for his time with my daughter and sharing his teaching skills. His genuine concern for my daughter's success is evident.
"Very Patient & Organized"
Catherine Cass from Palatine, IL
I am in grad school, and I never thought I would be expected to learn programming (Visual Basic) to support my degree. Technology is wonderful, but I felt overwhelmed. I contacted Edward through WyzAnt, and I am so glad I did. A couple of days before we met for my first tutoring session with Edward, I emailed him my syllabus and the appropriate version of Visual Basic. He downloaded the appropriate information to his laptop, and reviewed the instructions beforehand. At the appointed time, he was ready to proceed, and all I needed to do was turn on my laptop and allow him to instruct me in the appropriate steps to take in programming. In just one session of 75 minutes, I was able to submit my first project before its due date.
"Excellent tutor, and very flexible"
Stephen from Bartlett, IL
My daughter contracted a virus and strep throat during our planned tutor session time lines. Edward was very flexible and understanding. He also did a great job evaluating where my daughter was in the process of her subject ( math ), and then adapted to her need right before mid term finals. Nice job!
"Really great tutor"
Tess from Arlington Heights, IL
Math has always been a subject I've struggled in, when I began with Ed I still had trouble just adding and subtracting fractions. I met with Ed once a week, setting up sessions was very easy with him. Ed's schedule was generally flexible, which was great for me because I also work a part time job, as well as take classes. Ed was very patient with me, if we had a week or two of sticking with a difficult subject, for example: Rate problems, Ed would explain different ways to view the problem and a few methods on how to go about solving the problem. My original plan was to simply place into Math 101 on the placement test at my community college get my degree and be done with math forever. After studying with Ed, I took my placement test, and not only did I place into 101 but 140, 132, and 220! Without Ed's help I don't know if I would have had the patience to continue studying. His kindness, patience, and explanations were very clear. Ed actually reestablished my interest in math again. I know that the skills I have learned from meeting with Ed I will continue to put to use now and years to come in my education.

This is my first experience with an individual tutor. The time went by fast with the material we covered. It was like spending time with my instructor.
"Excellent Statistics Tutor"
Genni from Carpentersville, IL
My tutor, Ed was very approachable and helped break down the statistical methods so that I could understand them. His meeting times were always flexible to my schedule and he was always prompt. He was always easy to reach either by phone or e-mail and he was always prepared for our lessons. Without his assistance I would have never made it through my college level stats class. Thank you Ed!
