About Edward


Bio

I have been tutoring students for the SAT, ACT, GRE, and SSAT since 2013. For five years, I worked for a national test-prep company and became one of their best tutors, but I eventually wanted the freedom of being an independent tutor.

I have helped over 200 students improve their test scores in both classroom and one-on-one settings. I teach students to reason in a way that will help them with any standardized test they take. My students would describe me as patient and kind, but also...

I have been tutoring students for the SAT, ACT, GRE, and SSAT since 2013. For five years, I worked for a national test-prep company and became one of their best tutors, but I eventually wanted the freedom of being an independent tutor.

I have helped over 200 students improve their test scores in both classroom and one-on-one settings. I teach students to reason in a way that will help them with any standardized test they take. My students would describe me as patient and kind, but also focused and intentional in my teaching.

I scored 2400/2400 on the old SAT and 332/340 (perfect in math) on the GRE. However, my scores are not what make me a good teacher—though they do suggest I know what I’m talking about. Rather, it is my patience, passion, and preparation that make me a good teacher.

I also provide college essay editing and advising services. As a high school senior, I was accepted to Princeton and Harvard, and received full rides to many of the nation’s top universities. The important thing is not what you write about, but how: the essay that got me into Harvard was about working at Burger King.

My students have been accepted to many excellent colleges and universities, including Boston University, Bryn Mawr, Bucknell, Case Western, Cornell, Drexel, Harvard, NYU, Penn State, Pitt, RISD, Rutgers, TCNJ, UC Boulder, UC San Diego, University of Chicago, Wesleyan, and Villanova.

I am easygoing and personable, and have worked with students of all levels. My hobbies include basketball, songwriting, and watching and participating in musical theatre. I'm eager to help you get to the next level. I'm still looking for students for Summer 2018, but slots are filling quickly. I'm looking forward to working with you!
