Einstein once said, “If you can’t teach it to a six year old, you don’t understand it yourself." I certainly don’t profess to be Einstein, but I do think the key to effective tutoring is being able to articulate difficult concepts in a simple manner.
I have a BS from Worcester Polytechnic Institute and an MBA from NYU. During my career I held a number of technical positions: consulting engineer, technical sales engineer, sales manager, and product manager. I have tutored many students in both Math & Science, and I find it deeply rewarding. As a tutor I pride myself on my ability to marry exceptional technical skills with compassion and an engaging communication style.
My focus is teaching Algebra 1&2, Geometry, and SAT & ACT Test Prep for HS Students. I also work with many 8th Graders on Core Math skills and SSAT/ISEE Test Prep. In special cases I work with younger students. Every student is different, and I customize the lessons to match the student's needs. Selecting the right tutor is a difficult and very important decision. I am confident that I can not only improve the student's grasp of the math fundamentals, but also build the student's confidence.
Geographically, I live in Manhattan on the Upper Eastside; but during the summer I work with students in the Bridgehampton area.
I look forward to hearing from you.

Very Patient — Ed is a wonderful tutor in the way he approaches each lesson. My son was not thrilled to have the tutoring sessions to begin with and Ed was so patient and kind with him. Ed made the lesson a fun lesson for my son in the way he taught him how to remember the key points. I highly recommend Ed as a tutor and I am so happy that we found someone we can work with. ...
