If your high-schooler is struggling with Physics, Math, or Chemistry, I can help. I've taught all levels of classroom Physics (incl. AP) and am certified in Pennsylvania and New Jersey. Now I tutor full-time. My clients are from public schools, home schools, and community colleges, and I have helped them with Algebra II, Precalculus, Advanced Mathematics, Chemistry I, Chemistry II, and Organic Chemistry.

I'll meet your student at a local library, your home, or a mutually suitable location. We'll work out of the same textbook they're using in school and I will provide supplemental materials as needed. I adjust my teaching style to fit the way your student learns best, but always with a focus on actual problem-solving, a technique I've found works well with all students.

Why work with me? Because I can help your student understand a subject, not just pass a class. How? Because over a 20 year career in Silicon Valley's high-tech industry I've actually used the complex math and science concepts that I now teach. My first career is over, and now I'm pursuing my passion - teaching!

Ed's subjects

####
Algebra 1

Algebra I is the gateway to every other area of mathematics and science. I took my first Algebra class in middle school and have used it and taught its concepts for over 30 years in industry, finance, and academia.

####
Algebra 2

Algebra I and II are used every day in every level of Physics instruction. I usually have to teach 2-3 weeks of Algebra each year to get my students ready to learn physics.

####
Chemistry

I completed 5+ chemistry courses while earning an MIT undergrad degree in Materials Science.

####
Physics

I taught four years of high-school physics at Wilson Area High School. PA and NJ certificates are as Teacher of Physics.

####
Precalculus

Completed Calculus back in high school, Calculus 2 and Differential Equations at MIT. I taught AP Physics C which is calculus-based and used very advanced math in graduate-level Quantum Mechanics at Lehigh University.
