About Edward

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.
