Eric was an incredible partner in our son's college Spanish courses. We would recommend him highly as he is skilled in imparting his knowledge to others. He is very patient and arrives on time. He also is a good communicator and clarified the difficult concepts with ease. Thanks so much, Eric!

Eric takes his responsibility as a teacher seriously, and will work with you to find out what your goals are. I was preparing for a unique federal government language exam, and Eric gave me a great foundation while also focusing on specifics that I might need on the test. He has all types of students, of every background and level. No matter what you're aiming for, he will make your experience rewarding, challenging, and enjoyable. Highly recommended!

He's fantastic. Patient, funny, smart. My wife and I enjoy his lessons. He's helping me prepare my conversation skills for a trip to Colombia.

My son who is a Sophomore in high school has been having difficulties in Spanish. He started working with Eric a few weeks ago and has been making progress. Eric has a good way with explaining Spanish so that it is easy to understand and it makes sense. He is very committed, always comes prepared and uses the time he has with my son effectively and efficiently all the time. Eric is a strong teacher who really cares.
"Professional & talented Saxophone teacher!!"
Tim from Aliso Viejo, CA on 10/15/13
Eric is very professional and extremely helpful. He has taught me not only specific Saxophone techniques but also the music theory. He focused on details and paid attention on my form, fingering, tonguing, breathing techniques…, these basic but vital steps have helped me building a strong foundation for playing Saxophone. Eric has an incredible music talent. I had a chance to see him performed live with his band and listened to his released CDs, and his music was amazing!! He is a great Saxophone player!!. I'm glad I'm learning from the best. I would highly recommend Eric to anyone who seeking Saxophone lessons.
"Great tutor. Enjoyable and patient!"

Eric was a great tutor for my son in Spanish. He enjoyed him very much and looked forward to his lessons. Eric has a systematic but fun way of teaching. We were very impressed.
"Patient Tutor, Deceptive Cancellation Policy"
Kathryn from Irvine, CA on 9/16/12
Although I was impressed with my first lesson with Eric, I was unpleasantly surprised by his cancellation policy. Upon concluding our first lesson, Eric introduced his policy, and handed me a hard copy of it, which had room for my signature on the bottom. If I signed the policy, I would have been bound to it, as any signature line would indicate. I did not, however, sign his policy, but when I had to cancel a lesson, I was still charged for the full lesson. Eric refused to talk with me regarding the logical flaw inherent in his policy, and simply told me to "take it up with WyzAnt." I was unpleasantly surprised, and disappointed with this experience.
Eric replied on 9/17/2012:
While I appreciate the feedback, this simply isn't true. I would never hold my student accountable to a policy he/she didn't sign. My written policy had nothing to do with her being charged. A week following our first lesson, Katherine cancelled an hour and a half before the scheduled lesson time, only after I had texted to confirm. If I wouldn't have texted, I surely would have been stood up. Katherine was charged for the lesson because my online profile clearly states that I have a 24 hour cancellation policy. She had 7 days to tell me she wasn't planning on continuing, or that she had any qualm with my policy. She claims to be a tutor as well, and during or first lesson, shared with me her woes of dealing with bad reviews. She offered me nothing but praise on my teaching style and organization. She would not have been charged by Wyzant if she would have had the courtesy to let me know in advance that she wasn't coming; the same courtesy I imagine she expects from her students.

We hired Eric to help my daughter get a head start on high school Spanish this summer. He has been great! My daughter looks forward to their weekly sessions and really feels like she has learned so much from him. He is very knowledgeable in this subject. I appreciate that he is always on time, and has helped work around our busy schedule. Another plus is his great personality! I would highly recommend him.

Eric is a great tutor. He has an extreme knowledge of the Spanish language and a proficient command of its grammar and vocabulary. He listens to your needs and tailors the session to meet your goals. Eric arrives prepared and takes control of the lesson while ensuring a positive and productive experience. He's patient and has good sense of humor that helps to build a good rapport with a not always cooperative teenager.
Eric was always on time, he responded quickly to my emails, and he worked hard to facilitate our busy schedule and needs.
"Flexible and attentive"
Jose from Long Beach, CA on 7/13/12
Eric has been great to work with. I am in a unique space in that I know Spanish quite well conversationally but have never studied it, therefore I read and write it phonetically and don't know the grammar rules. My job requires an educated mastery of the language and Eric has been quite helpful. While Eric has reviewed the basics with me he has been incredibly accommodating to helping me with what I specifically need.
Lisa from Laguna Beach, CA on 7/13/12
Eric is great, very patient and tailors the lesson to the goals of the student. I would definitely recommend him.
Cheryll from Huntington Beach, CA on 5/19/10
Colton is very happy with you. He likes the fact that you don't rush through the lesson and that you explain in detail.
"Excellent tutor, prompt and attentive!"
Michael from Fountain Valley, CA on 9/11/09
We have had 8 lessons with Eric so far. He is tutoring Spanish to my children. He is attentive and well prepared for each lesson. He shows up on time for the lessons promptly. My kids enjoy their lessons with Eric.
