All of Eric’s current tutoring subjects are listed at the left. You can read more about Eric’s qualifications in specific subjects below.

American History

I have passed the Social Science CSET, which qualifies me to teach subjects such as US History, World History, & Government at the middle school and high school level. I have classroom experience as a US History & Psychology instructor, including curriculum development and lesson planning. I have tutored students at home in both US and World History, and helped them prepare for tests and complete essay assignments.

English

I work with middle and high school students to improve their writing in multiple formats (traditional English essays, literary analysis, and SAT preparation). I also work with students to improve their grammar, spelling, and vocabulary skills. Additionally, I help students identify themes and literary devices in fiction and poetry, and work with students to improve their reading comprehension.

Social Studies

I have passed the California CSET for Social Science. During my student teaching at a high school in Loomis, CA, I planned and taught US History for a full term. I have tutored students in US and World History from grades 7 through 12.

Study Skills

During the course of my tutoring and teaching, I have helped students with a range of academic skills and challenges to stay organized through the use of available technology resources, and through the development of key study skills, such as reading and note-taking strategies. I have worked with students with IEPs, and have designed action plans to help keep them stay organized and proactive. In addition, my 76.5 hours of post-graduate work towards a MA in Education includes a focus on best practices.

Writing

In addition to graduating with a BA in Modern Literature with a concentration in Creative Writing from UC Santa Cruz, I have been helping students with academic writing for over three years as a teacher and private tutor. I have helped students edit and improve essays, prepare for the SAT Writing section, and complete countless other academic papers.

Approved Subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet certified in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
