I graduated magna cum laude with a Bachelor's degree in Mathematics from Yerevan State University. Upon my graduation, I have participated in various mathematical workshops and conferences around the globe. In addition to my education in mathematics, I also started doing my internship at the National Institute of Applied Sciences of Lyon in France by specializing in topology and differential equations. Thus, my math tutoring career began a few years ago when I realized that I am passionate about assisting students in understanding, achieving, appreciating, as well as succeeding in learning mathematics.
I have four years of experience in tutoring high school mathematics, specifically PreAlgebra, Algebra 1, Algebra 2, Geometry, Trigonometry, PreCalculus as well as SAT and ACT Math . For the first two years of my tutoring career, I worked as a part-time student at a nationwide math learning center called Mathnasium. Then I was hired by a private tutoring center called Math Academia where I worked one year. Since then I have been doing online and in-person tutoring, and I enjoy helping students who struggle with mathematical concepts. My ultimate goal for tutoring mathematics is to bring my knowledge and expertise to those who are interested in improving their mathematical knowledge as well as achieving higher grades on their quizzes and standardized tests such as SAT and ACT. With passion and enthusiasm, I strive to make mathematical concepts as easy as possible for my students to grasp and apply.
I want to benefit students as much as possible. I welcome any resources, suggestions, and comments from both students and parents. I am quite responsive to any inquiries in a very short period of time. Please feel free to contact me how to schedule a lesson either online or in-person.
Personality and Hobbies:
I am an avid hiker, chess player, traveler, and a person who always goes for adventures and challenges. I have a friendly and easy-going personality.
Edgar has provided examples of their subject expertise by answering 3 questions submitted by students on Wyzant’s Ask an Expert.
Knowledgeable and patient
Edgar helped my high school son with Algebra. He went over the quadratic equations and their graphs with him. They did some exercises and word problems regarding systems of equations and linear inequalities. He helped my son completing his homeworks and helped him prepare for his final exam as well. Easy to contact and make appointments. Very prompt. Very happy with the result. Highly recommended. Catherine A.Catherine, 3 lessons with EdgarTutor responded:
Thank you, Catherine!
Pre-calculus -- Edgar is the best!!
My daughter's description of Edgar: kind, all-knowing, brilliant at explaining deeper concepts as well as how to address problems. He makes you feel comfortable learning complex material, even when you're struggling. All in all, he's godlike and masterful! I guess that sums it up. If you need a tutor, get Edgar!Robin, 2 lessons with EdgarTutor responded:
Thank you Robin!
Knowledgeable and thorough
I was having extreme difficulty with polar coordinates, and Edgar helped me cover not only the fundamentals but also go in depth into the subject matter. I am now confident in that sector. He’s a great Precalculus tutor.Ani, 2 lessons with EdgarTutor responded:
Thank you, Ani!

Edgar teaches pre- algebra to my 7th-grader. He loves learning with Edgar and comes home having mastered the week's lesson. We use a program (AoPS) to which Edgar was not familiar at first. He quickly learned the method/program and is very comfortable teaching it.Liana, 3 lessons with EdgarTutor responded:
Thank you Liana!
Knowledgeable and enthusiastic tutor
Edgar is patient yet energetic, exactly right for my daughter. His clarity helped her understand the concepts she was learning in 10th grade geometry, and his knowledge of the subject allowed him to help her with ease and understanding. He is comfortable and engaging. I would highly recommend Edgar.Leslie, 1 lesson with EdgarTutor responded:
Thank you Leslie!
Edgar is a Great tutor. He was extremely patient and worked with the same math problems with my daughter and got her understanding the geometrical problems better than her teacher was able to explain it to her.Richard, 1 lesson with EdgarTutor responded:
Thank you Richard!
Edgar is an awesome tutor! He is really knowledgeable in pre calculus and explains everything so clearly. He is patient and makes sure I understand the subject. I would recommend Edgar for anyone struggling in math!Jocelyn, 2 lessons with EdgarTutor responded:
Thank you Jocelyn
Responsible, conscientious, patient, and knowledgable!
Edgar has worked with my twelve year old son for two sessions now. He's friendly, patient, and committed. My son has enjoyed the time they've worked together and feels Edgar is helping him reach a deeper understanding of the material covered in his 7th grade math class. Things can move quickly in the classroom and it's a relief knowing we have Edgar to help when needed!Shelley, 6 lessons with EdgarTutor responded:
Thank you Shelley!
Knowledgeable and competent tutor
Edgar is incredibly patient person, but importantly, a great teacher. He was able to explain material in a simple, easy way , that math doesn't seem daunting to my son anymore . Furthermore, my son got his first ever " A" in math test since we started working with Edgar. We highly recommend Edgar to any student, struggling with math.Gaya, 5 lessons with EdgarTutor responded:
