Great Tutor

I take great pleasure in recommending Ed as tutor to any student who needs to improve English skills. Ed was able to help me with sentence structure, grammar, and writing style. Ed worked very hard to correct my article problems and with the structure of the sentences. He was always ready and eager to help me to accomplish my goals. Ed puts his heart into his work, he cares about his students, and he does really help. Ed has his own way of thinking and teaching which helps the student to stay focused and have fun at the same time. I've studied with many other tutors, but now I've found the right tutor for me and I am not going to substitute him with any other. Thank you Ed!
