About Edward

My goal is to continue tutoring students successfully, I have been tutoring since March and have received 5 stars from the approximately 23 students that I tutored. One of my students scored a five on the AP U.S. History exam and an 800 On the Sat II U. S. History exam. These are the highest scores that you can receive.I have taught for 20 years and my experience both in colleges and in high schools have given me a strong insight into how to prepare students for today’s rigorous college programs. My experience in different levels and teaching different subjects ranging from government to economics has taught me to cater to different students unique learning styles, while always maintaining a strong understanding for preparing students for exams and their own unique goals. I have taught both A.P. American History and World History. My students have done well on the New York State Regents and also on the Advanced Placement tests. Having become a teacher later in life, I value patience as a virtue in my teaching style and take a keen interest in tutoring students and aiding to guide them in using their history education to further their objectives.

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.

American History

I have taught for 20 years in college and high school. I taught AP American History in a magnet school in New Jersey. I have had high passing rates in my classes in both American and European History. My passion is history and I read books about American History all of the time.

European History

I received a master's in 19th.century European History from New York University. I have taught Advanced Placement History in high school and have tutored Advanced Placement History.

Government & Politics

I have taught 20 years in high school and college. I have taught AP European and American History. Many of my high school courses required New York State Regents. My students did very well on the regents.

Social Studies

I have taught Social Studies for 20 years in high schools. I have a good grasp of the subject. Even though there is no New York State Regents in Social Studies, knowledge of the subject does help students to pass the regents. My students have always done very well on the Global and American History Regents.

World History

I have taught in high school and college for 20 years. In both levels of schools, I taught World History and I have taught AP World History. I have had high passing percentages on the New York State regents exams.

A/P World History Exam Knowledge — My daughter worked with Ed on reviewing world history events for both her honor roll final and A/P World History Exam in 2015. He was very knowledgeable in the subject matter and used a fluid story telling manner to give my daughter a visual picture of events (not just a thousand facts to be memorized). My only regret is that I didn't find him at the beginning of the year. My child received a 90 i ...
