About Edmond

I am a retired Special Ed Teacher with additional certifications in History and Reading. I taught for many years in a highly respected suburban district and also coached varsity boys and girls soccer and softball.
As a Special Education teacher, much of my teaching was done on a one-to-one basis or in small groups. I loved the challenge of working with "special needs" students and helping them to become "authors" of their own learning. I have the patience, knowledge of subject matter and a life-long love of reading and the written word that I convey to students and that can enable them to develop strategies for success in school.
I can remember early in my career, a principal remarking that he "didn't quite understand what I was doing but the students looked like they were having fun and learning at the same time." That is the hallmark of my teaching.
As a tutor I work closely with parents and school staff to ensure that the student will be successful in his/her endeavors. Organizational and study skills are emphasized where needed and writing and proof reading skills are strengthened.

Great First Encounter(s)

While technically not the first encounter it was Ed's first time tutoring both of our girls. His love for teaching is obvious and our girls had no problem relating to or working with him. Our first experience was when he came to meet the girls the week prior to tutoring to make sure everyone was comfortable. Ed is first class.
