My name is Edward, I have a background in Electrical Engineering from the Illinois Institute of Technology and I have been a College Reading and Learning Association Certified Tutor and Mentor for over ten years. I have worked with various programs such as the South Shore School of Leadership, the South Suburban College Academic Assistance Center, the Office for Students with Disabilities and Educational Talent Search (which included teaching ACT/SAT test preparation courses). I tutor multiple subjects including math (elementary school mathematics all the way up to Calculus), science (Biology, General and Organic Chemistry, Physics, and Anatomy/Physiology) as well as English and Philosophy, to name a few.
I specialize in one-on-one tutoring sessions with elementary, middle and high-school age children and students of all ages with special needs (ADD/ADHD, learning disabilities, poor study skills or test-taking anxiety). I am patient and persevere until my students grasp the concepts they need to be successful and confident when completing their schoolwork and taking tests. My tutoring style is to build upon a student's previous knowledge and experiences in order to make learning new information (no matter what subject) fun and easy-to-remember.
I enjoy explaining complex concepts in simple terms and look forward to helping those in the community for many years to come.
