About Ed


Bio

Einstein once said, “If you can’t teach it to a six year old, you don’t understand it yourself." I certainly don’t profess to be Einstein, but I do think the key to effective tutoring is being able to articulate difficult concepts in a simple manner.

Einstein once said, “If you can’t teach it to a six year old, you don’t understand it yourself." I certainly don’t profess to be Einstein, but I do think the key to effective tutoring is being able to articulate difficult concepts in a simple manner.

I have a BS from Worcester Polytechnic Institute and an MBA from NYU. During my career I held a number of technical positions: consulting engineer, technical sales engineer, sales manager, and product manager. I have tutored many students in both Math & Science, and I find it deeply rewarding. As a tutor I pride myself on my ability to marry exceptional technical skills with compassion and an engaging communication style.

My focus is teaching Algebra 1&2, Geometry, and SAT & ACT Test Prep for HS Students. I also work with many 7th & 8th Graders on Core Math skills and SSAT/ISEE/SHSAT Test Prep. In addition I help 6th Graders with test prep for the highly competitive Hunter Test. Every student is different, and I customize the lessons to match the student's needs. Selecting the right tutor is a difficult and very important decision. I am confident that I can not only improve the student's grasp of the math fundamentals, but also build the student's confidence.

Geographically, I live in Manhattan on the Upper Eastside; but during the summer I work with students in the Bridgehampton area.

I look forward to hearing from you.

I have helped many students prep for the ISEE, SSAT & SHSAT Tests. These tests can be difficult, and students will need to learn core skills they have not learned yet in school. I understand these hurdles, and can help your children overcome them.

My specialty is Test Prep with a focus on Math. I have worked with many students on the New SAT Exam, and have been able to consistently improve their score. The SAT is hard as well as tricky, and timing is a significant hurdle to overcome.

I specialize in Test Prep, and have worked with many students preparing them for the ACT. I have a very strong Technical background, with a BS in Engineering from WPI. The ACT is a tricky test, and can create time issues. I work with students on 3 areas: building their core skills, and better understanding how to attack the tricky problems. Secondly I help the students master Time Management. Lastly, I work with the student to develop a test taking Strategy. I have successfully helped students raise their Math Score 100+ points.

ISEE

The ISEE Test is a very difficult exam for students; however I have had excellent experience improving student's scores. I have a BS in Engineering from WPI and an MBA from NYU. My education in Engineering has given me a solid foundation in Math. My minor at WPI was American Literature; which has equipped me with the tools for the Verbal Reasoning and Reading Comprehension sections of the exam. I not only improve the student's core skills, but help develop a test taking strategy which includes time management.

ISEE

Ed worked with my son to prepare him for the ISEE exam, high achool level. Ed was extremely responsive and and worked to make session timings work for my son. He is knowledgeable and explains things very well. My son enjoyed working with him, too!

Debra, 1 lesson with Ed

Smart, pleasant and inspiring!

Ed worked with our daughter (advanced math 8th grade) on prep for the ISEE. He is very familiar with the math and quant sections. Our daughter gave him the rating. She found him calm, patient and liked his teaching method. This was first lesson but she was inspired to work on the assigned problems the same day!

Courtney, 9 lessons with Ed

Exactly what we were looking for

We had a first math tutoring session yesterday. My son really liked Ed, his instructions are clear, lesson was interesting, much was done and Ed has a very pleasant personality. We are very happy!

Alexandra, 6 lessons with Ed

Knowledgeable, interested and patient

Very nice and understanding of my problems and concerns. I do recommend him! He was available on short notice and gave me confidence . I am happy to have found him

Patricia, 2 lessons with Ed

Patient and knowledgable Tutor

Ed was a terrific help providing an introduction to new concepts that our daughter will face on her standardized test. He is very good at providing clear and easily digestible problem-solving techniques. He is engaging and warm and our daughter very much enjoyed her time with him.

Elizabeth , 3 lessons with Ed

Great job by Ed!

Ed was really nice and came to work on time. He also gave Hannah a lot of helpful tips on ACT. For example, he suggested that Hannah underline certain words of interest or pique when she reads a passage--that helped her find the definition of the word or the implications that the word suggested in the passage. Rachel, Hannah's sister, had Ed only twice, but could not continue due to her energy-sapping summer job. She said that Ed was a really good tutor.

Henry, 7 lessons with Ed

Patient and Insightful

Ed was extremely patient and was able to grasp which areas our son needed to be assisted on in order to prepare him for the Math portion of the SAT. After the completion of the allotted tutoring sessions, it left our son more confident and knowledgeable in the lessons that Ed had concentrated on teaching him.

Alexa, 11 lessons with Ed

Excellent Tutor

Ed did a great job refreshing my daughter on the basic concepts of Algebra 1 and slowly working into an introduction to Algebra 2. He gave very clear simple instructions that were very helpful.

Makes good connection to student

Good feedback to parent, clear and supportive of steady progress- looking forward to future sessions focusing on Algebra 2.
