About Eddie

I have taught at a high school for students with learning differences for the last eight years. The experience of helping hundreds of students reach their potential has enabled me to understand that not everyone learns the same way. I am a passionate believer in everyone having the ability to learn in her/his own unique manner. My style of teaching and tutoring revolves around the specific needs and goals of each student and I aim to tailor each lesson accordingly.

I am a state-certified teacher who has taught World History, World Geography, American History, English, and Government in middle and high school. I specialize in tutoring the humanities and social sciences (English, Grammar, Literature, History, Government, Geography, Economics, Sociology, etc.) for secondary school. I also specialize in preparing high school students for the reading and writing portions of the SAT and ACT exams. I am a patient and empathetic tutor who is dedicated to helping you achieve your full potential.
