About Ed

If your high-schooler is struggling with Physics, Math, or Chemistry, I can help. I've taught all levels of classroom Physics (incl. AP) and am certified in Pennsylvania and New Jersey. Now I tutor full-time. My clients are from public schools, home schools, and community colleges, and I have helped them with Algebra II, Precalculus, Advanced Mathematics, Chemistry I, Chemistry II, and Organic Chemistry.

I'll meet your student at a local library, your home, or a mutually suitable location. We'll work out of the same textbook they're using in school and I will provide supplemental materials as needed. I adjust my teaching style to fit the way your student learns best, but always with a focus on actual problem-solving, a technique I've found works well with all students.

Why work with me? Because I can help your student understand a subject, not just pass a class. How? Because over a 20 year career in Silicon Valley's high-tech industry I've actually used the complex math and science concepts that I now teach. My first career is over, and now I'm pursuing my passion - teaching!

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.

Algebra 1

Algebra I is the gateway to every other area of mathematics and science. I took my first Algebra class in middle school and have used it and taught its concepts for over 30 years in industry, finance, and academia.

Algebra 2

Algebra I and II are used every day in every level of Physics instruction. I usually have to teach 2-3 weeks of Algebra each year to get my students ready to learn physics.

Chemistry

I completed 5+ chemistry courses while earning an MIT undergrad degree in Materials Science.

Physics

I taught four years of high-school physics at Wilson Area High School. PA and NJ certificates are as Teacher of Physics.

Precalculus

Completed Calculus back in high school, Calculus 2 and Differential Equations at MIT. I taught AP Physics C which is calculus-based and used very advanced math in graduate-level Quantum Mechanics at Lehigh University.

Quick Improvement — My son began working with Ed less than a month ago and has seen improvement in both Physics and Precalculus. My son really looks forward to working with Ed each week as Ed thoroughly, but clearly explains the material. It has given him a renewed sense of confidence. ...
