Einstein once said “If you can’t teach it to a six-year-old, you don’t understand it yourself.” While Ed McAniff does not profess to be Einstein, he agrees wholeheartedly that the key to effective tutoring is being able to articulate difficult concepts in a very simple manner and in a variety of ways. He maintains this philosophy whether providing mathematics or targeted test preparation support.
