About Edward


Bio

I am a Caltech graduate with a degree in Mathematics and 25 years experience as an Aerospace Engineer. I love teaching math and realize that every student has a unique learning style, so I try to tailor my lessons to allow each student to use their strengths to solve a problem in the way that is easiest for them, while also working on their weak points so they will have more tools available to them to solve problems in different ways in the future.

I am a Caltech graduate with a degree in Mathematics and 25 years experience as an Aerospace Engineer. I love teaching math and realize that every student has a unique learning style, so I try to tailor my lessons to allow each student to use their strengths to solve a problem in the way that is easiest for them, while also working on their weak points so they will have more tools available to them to solve problems in different ways in the future. One of the great things about Math is that there's usually more than one way to solve a problem, and I enjoy showing students different approaches to problems so they will be comfortable using several different techniques to solve problems.

I have been tutoring mathematics for several years, in particular Algebra 1 and 2, Geometry, Trigonometry, Pre-calculus and Calculus. I guarantee that you will be happy with your lesson or you don't have to pay! I realize that your time is as valuable as mine, so while I do have a 24 hour cancellation policy I try to be flexible in scheduling make up sessions. I am based in Valencia and am willing to travel up to 15 miles.

I look forward to hearing from you and helping you in your math studies!

Kind and Thorough

Worked through some of the more complicated math problems on the PSAT. Was thorough and complete in explanation. Mr. C was kind and patient and very prepared. He had the appropriate curriculum and a reserved room at the library.

Informative and patient

My daughter had her 1st session with Edward and it went well. It's still early in the school year so it was basically a review of what to expect in this class. Looking forward to more lessons

Knowledgeable and Relaxed

Edward did a great job with my son with his Algebra II studying. First lesson is done, and my son said it helped. More to come as we get closer to test time.

Stacey, 5 lessons with Edward

Excellent Tutor

Helped me all through this semester with Calc 1. He knows everything off the top of his head and explains things perfectly. Glad I went with him and highly recommend.

Andre, 18 lessons with Edward

Kind, Helpful, Knowledgable, and a patient tutor

Before our son was being tutored by Edward our son would struggle to get a B in Honors Algebra II/Trig and did not like math. Now, with Edward's help, our son is getting A's on his exams and actually thinks math is "OK" now. When there is not much homework Edward goes over our son's PSAT test results and is helping him to correct mistakes so that he will be better prepared for the SAT test next year. Our son says that he likes Edward because he goes through all the steps for a question and If he gets the wrong answer Edward will explain what went wrong. After the lesson Edward provides his notes so that our son can look them over if he has questions.

Knowledgeable, patient, and ensures understanding of the subject matter

Edward began working with our daughter on Algebra 2/Trig late in the semester. She had done poorly on two major tests, and he worked patiently with to help her understand a lot of material she had trouble with during the semester. With his tutoring, she managed to get a 96% on her math final for the semester. The final was a little too late to help significantly with this semester's grade, but it gives her a solid foundation to start the second semester. We are confident if she continues to work with Edward that her grade will improve significantly next semester.

Ed helped to review weak areas and explained strategies for a final exam. He was wonderful, prepared and extremely helpful. You can tell he loves math!

Knowledgeable and Prepared

Edward is an awesome tutor. He is always prepared and informed before he comes to my lesson, if I tell him what I want to work on. He is great at explaining the concepts and knows them very well. I always appreciate his help.

Edward explains things well and helps me to have a more thorough understanding of the Precalculus material. I'm learning more from him then from my actual teacher.
