About Ed

My name is Ed and I really enjoy teaching and helping students. My goal is to make you enjoy learning as much as I enjoy teaching. I graduated from Yale with a degree in math and economics and from Stanford with an MBA. I also earned a graduate degree in teaching and am a certified teacher.

Students describe me as friendly, patient, understanding, and fun to work with. As I do with them, I will build my lesson plans based on what you want and need.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Career Development

During the last year and a half, I've given over 100 job search lessons via Italki. I also help people face to face. This is built on my 35 years of experience as a hiring manager and job seeker.

Marketing

I have over 30 years of experience working inside and as a marketing consultant to large, medium, and small companies, as well as start-ups, across a wide range of industries. I was a Group Marketing Manager at Quaker Oats who led the US market introductions of Quaker Chewy Granola Bars and Quaker Rice Cakes. My marketing consulting clients include major international companies like GE, Unilever, Merck, and PepsiCo. I have run a new products development company. My education includes a BS degree from Yale and an MBA from Stanford with a concentration in marketing. I can teach all aspects of marketing, using hands-on examples and help with all types of projects.

Public Speaking

I have over 30 years of experience planning, writing, and delivering business presentations. These range from one-on-one sales pitches to small group meetings to conventions with hundreds in the audience. I teach how to prepare a presentation and how to deliver it effectively. A student will learn how to craft visual supporting materials, like slides that are easy to read and highly visual, rather than slides full of dense text. We'll talk about how to include audio and video to grab and maintain user attention and involvement. I have an MBA degree from Stanford, a degree from Yale, and a degree in teaching.
