About Ed

I am interested in helping motivated students who may need a little extra boost in math, science, and technology subjects. As an engineer, I routinely apply these subjects to solve practical problems and I am confident that I can help you do the same. I have coached successful teams in math and science competitions as well as mentored many engineers, scientists, and students for more than 30 years.

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.

Algebra 1

Lost X? Let's find him. He's probably hanging out somewhere near his pal, Y.

Algebra 2

Thorny word problems got you down? Let's pull 'em up by their dirty little quadratic roots.

ASVAB

I coached a prospective sailor to a '99' ASVAB score. I can't perform miracles, but if you are willing to invest some time and practice we can work together to prepare for the main event.

Biology

Don't know frogs from fungi? Endoplasmic reticulum a little rough lately? Let's dissect your issues.

Calculus

Challenged by Change? Can't differentiate your integrals?
Let's talk.

Chemistry

If we carefully titrate 5 mL of good wine into a barrel full of sewage we obtain a barrel full of sewage. Conversely, if we stir just 1 mL of sewage into a barrel full of fine cognac, it is instantly transformed into a barrel full of sewage.

After performing the foregoing classic experiment proposed by Dr. Arthur Schopenhauer, in the 19th century, one marvels that anyone should be expected to grasp the underlying principles of freshman chemistry.

Geometry

Three water tanks each hold the same volume of oil. One tank is shaped like a sphere (ball), another like a cylinder (soda can), and the third is shaped like a cube (box). Which tank required the least amount of paint to cover its exterior surface? Answer this question correctly and I will discount my geometry tutoring rate by 10%. If you CAN answer this question without assistance, maybe you don't need much coaching anyway.

Physics

F=MA, V=IR, and PV=nRT. It is almost that simple, only with a couple more details thrown in. I'll fill you in on the way to to the exam.

Prealgebra

When money is involved, word problems are often easier to solve. Let's try one out:

Susie Smith failed her College Algebra Mid Term at Community College C. If Susie does not pass the course, she will need to repeat the course next term at a cost of $333 and it will delay her application to Med Tech school by at least one year. Susie wisely decides to hire a tutor.

Susie must choose between Tutor A who charges $20 per hour and Tutor B who bills $45 per hour. Both tutors are competent, but Tutor A wants to make math "fun" for Susie 2 hours per week until the end of the semester (8 weeks), whereas Tutor B recommends an hour to diagnose Susie's problem and two to three hours as needed to help with homework and prepare for the final exam.

Which tutor should Susie choose? Why?

Precalculus

"Calculus" is from the Latin, meaning "little stone," ergo pre-calculus must be the state before these little gems harden into rock. So let's get this show on the road before we need a jackhammer.

SAT Math

If you are already shooting a 700+, and/or the next test is in 2 weeks, then you probably won't get much return-on-investment from a SAT coach.

On the other hand, If you are looking to move up into the 600s and can dedicate a few hours of practice per week for a month, then a few hours of tutoring might be helpful.

But please understand that no one can transform Homer Simpson into Albert Einstein overnight.

Trigonometry

Triangle Trouble? Running around in Unit Circles? We'll make it "Right."

Connection based tutoring....can you ask for anything more? — Ed is helping my son to pass the ASVAB test. This is our 2nd tutor, the first one was also great w/ my son, but he didn't feel "that" connection. With Ed, he is doing great!! I also like that Ed has a back up (his son) if he feels the kid isn't learning. ...
