PICK ME! PICK ME!!

More than 25 years of teaching, consulting, and management have taught me one important thing - people want you to care about their success before they become comfortable with letting you lead them. I believe I am an effective tutor because, regardless of the age or level of education of the individual I'll be guiding, a rapport will be built that will allow us to work well together.

PICK ME! PICK ME!!

More than 25 years of teaching, consulting, and management have taught me one important thing - people want you to care about their success before they become comfortable with letting you lead them. I believe I am an effective tutor because, regardless of the age or level of education of the individual I'll be guiding, a rapport will be built that will allow us to work well together.

I've had substantial business experience, which allows me to bring a broad, real world perspective to tutoring subjects such as economics, business, and finance. A portion of that time spent in business was as a sales manager for a Wall Street investment firm. Having trained and managed hundreds of advisers, I am skilled at helping individuals pass the Series 7, Series 63, and Series 66 exams.

As a college professor, I believe writing proficiency is an underdeveloped skill. Many students are challenged in expressing their thoughts effectively in writing. I'm able to improve the quality of writing for any student by helping them develop a style, while building their vocabulary and proofreading their grammar.

For young students, I start with the aforementioned grammar and vocabulary training, and my students are better prepared for their standardized tests, such as the ACT, SAT, and GED. Therefore, if your child needs assistance with prealgebra, algebra 1, algebra 2 - on up to the SAT Math or SAT Writing exams - I'm your guy.

As you can read from the reviews I've had, my students learn, and feel comfortable communicating with me. I even make learning what are often perceived as the difficult subjects - Chemistry and American History - fun for your child. These were my favorite subjects to teach, and therefore, for your students who are struggling with these (or taking an advanced placement course), my ability to make such topics interesting will raise their grades - and possible lower your college costs.

Send a message to learn more about my teaching style, and let's schedule to meet - in person or online. I guarantee that you or your child will benefit from our working together.

I have been a successful franchisee with two national chains, as well as having assisted others in writing business plans to start their own businesses. As a management consultant, I guide existing business owners in developing the appropriate systems and controls to generate more profit and cash flow. When working with me, you get the best of years of big company experience matched with an understanding of how to apply best practices to multiple business entities.
Macroeconomics,

Macroeconomics

I believe that individuals make decisions about money based upon scarcity and risk. It is also the basis of what we learn about economic theory - and this is one of the easiest ways I learned to explain the concepts of the subject. I completed my MBA in Global Business Management using this method, and I believe that it is easily communicated to and understood by anyone who has made purchase decisions.

Series 63

I believe I would be well-qualified to tutor students to assist them in passing the series 63 exam. Having passed the exam twice (due to leaving and re-entering the industry), I have more than sufficient familiarity with the techniques needed to pass the exam. Having spent more than 8 years in a management in the financial services industry, I have successfully assisted many individuals in getting through the Series 63. I'm confident that I'd be able to do the same for many others.
Series 7,

Series 7

I first passed the Series 7 exam on Dec. 12, 1987 on my first attempt - during a time when only 16% of individuals passed on their first attempt. I left the industry in 1999, and when I returned in 2006, I had to take the test, again. I scored an 84 the first time I passed the test, and this time, I scored a 95. As a manager in the securities industry for 8 years, I have worked with many individuals to become comfortable with the variety of securities exams. I believe I can assist others in understanding the concepts and doing well.

In my opinion, the ability to write will be a major point of differentiating members entering the workforce in the future.

American History

American History

This is my first love as a teaching subject - so much so, that when I plan to teach in the K-12 system, I will teach American History. I have tutored this informally, and used history as a basis for my work in the financial management field - the history of the financial markets in this country. I have broad knowledge of the Founding Fathers and how our government was structured, as well as a working knowledge of the actions that led to seminal changes in our Constitution and laws.

I was a college basketball player - not a star, but someone who had to work very hard to make it on to the court. I learned a great deal from excellent coaches, and coached high school-aged players for three years. I also have been a basketball referee on the grade school and high school level. Additionally, I have background and certification in personal training and sports nutrition, so I'm able to offer an understanding of the physiological of improving basketball ability, along with teaching the fundamentals of the game.

Simply Amazing

Edward goes above and beyond the call of duty as an instructor. He takes time to focus on the areas you feel are challenging, while giving you a comprehensive assessment of all the topics. I worked with him on the series 63 and series 7. He created a study schedule that was flexible and worked around my hectic one. It was an equal balance of work and play. Edward allows us to meet early mornings on weekend and late nights during the work week for our online meetings. I can honestly say that with his help, verbal encouragements and consistency that his tutoring helped me understand the material and apply it to the exam. Thank you for all of your help Edward!

Jackie, 24 lessons with Edward

Great tutor

Worked on some chapters we had not covered before. Edward helped to keep my confidence high. I took a 40-question practice test and it went a lot better than previous tests. I was more relaxed and Edward was able to remind me that each question is its "own game" (me being an athlete) and to not let previous questions lower that confidence level.

Gifted Tutor

My son raved endlessly after just one session with Edward. It was unbelievable especially coming from a kid who is very insightful and hard to impress. My son was super impressed with him and his style of SAT prep. He's in the 80th percentile now and we are hoping for even greater with Edward's help. My son said in one hour they identified his consistent problem area and Edward showed him how to overcome it. He was beyond impressed. Wish we had met him at least a year when we started this SAT journey and wasted tons of money elsewhere. I guess better late than never. We get one more shot at it...We are psyched! My son is so relieved. Now he thoroughly understands that illusive section on the test!!! Awesome 👍 Kudos to Einstein Edward. :)

Maureen, 4 lessons with Edward

Knowledgeable and in-depth

I liked going through the test and for each question he would go into detail about each of the possible answers. Definitely setting me on the right route for my Series 63 studying.

Holly, 3 lessons with Edward

knowledgeable, patient, and a awesome guy to work with.

I have been working on the series 63 exam with Edward, in which I have been having some difficulty with in the past. We have been doing a good amount of practice exams together. While going through these exams, Ed has been teaching me different strategies to help remember the material, such as real life situations which has been extremely helpful.

Knowledgeable and Patient

I was pleased to see my son’s face light up with encouragement and confidence knowing that with practice he will be successful. Mr Edward has an awesome talent to teach and we are extremely grateful to have him on my son’s academic Team. :-)

Chloe, 1 lesson with Edward

Patient and adaptable to the student

I feel Edward understands what my son needs to focus on to improve his test scores. He is also presenting Tyler with great skills he can use in the future! I will use Edward for my other children as well.

Tyler , 5 lessons with Edward

Very personable, extremely knowledgeable, well rounded and can relate to my son

My family was very pleased with our first session with Edward. Not only does he come with knowledge on how to prepare for the SATs (in both Math and English), but he has such a well rounded background, he and my son really connected in areas of sports, finance, nutrition, and more. I also liked how he emphasized the need for my son to do his part before their next session. He's a good role model in terms of school, studying and other aspects of life. We look forward to the next session. Thank you Edward!

Lisa, 2 lessons with Edward

Knowledge and patient

Edward taught me how to take every problem steph by step and tricks to a lot of math problems. He understands how the sats work and what is hard so he knows what points to hit. He was very patient and New how to teach you properly

Matthew, 5 lessons with Edward

Very Patient and Really Able to Understand the Student's Areas for Development

My son just took the SAT's for the 3rd time as he was trying to bring up his Math score. He had 4 sessions with Edward and came out of the test on Saturday stating that he felt so much more confident in his answers and was able to complete all the questions. I would strongly recommend Edward.
