About Ed

Teaching Experience

Teaching Experience
My background is a mix of the academic and the practical, and this is an important aspect of what I bring to my tutoring. I really like working with students one on one because that way I get a much better sense of the student and her/his specific needs and learning style than I would standing in front of a class of students (and I've done plenty of that in my career). I'm a very giving, helpful, other-directed person when it comes to tutoring and helping students succeed.
