About Ed

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.

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.

ACT Math

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.

Algebra 2

I have helped many students with both Algebra 1&2. Helping students Perp for the SAT & ACT constantly allows me to help students solve tricky problems, but also see the relationships between equations and graphs.

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.

Prealgebra

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.

SAT Math

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.

Great tutor

I highly recommend Ed if your child is in need of some extra help. He has certainly made an impact on my daughter's math grades. He is patient with her and very helpful. He goes over any confusion she may have and also gives her the confidence to do problems on her own. My daughter thoroughly enjoys her lessons with Ed.
