A military brat, Edward Matthews grew up in Northern Virginia, spending most of his formative years in basements playing video games. He went to college at the University of Virginia where he majored in business. Following graduation, he headed west, living in San Francisco for four years before moving to Los Angeles to attend the University of Southern California.
Ed has been teaching for over eight years, mostly preparatory courses for the SAT and GMAT (the admissions exam for business school) for education companies Kaplan and Veritas Prep. When he is not teaching, Ed enjoys experimenting with his pizza dough recipe and playing board games.
