Hi! My name is Eric, and my love of teaching comes from the happiness that I get when I am able to push myself and my students to improve and achieve our full potential. I love to see my students grow and thrive.
I just received my B.S. in Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering from Rice University in Houston and am currently working towards my M.S. in Mechanical Engineering
I graduated on the Presidents Honor Roll and I have always excelled in my courses. I received the AP Scholar award, became a member of the California Scholarship Federation, and received the scholarship athlete award. I have my soccer
coaching license and have coached middle and high school teams. I gained tutoring experience as a math
teaching assistant and as a private tutor for students ranging from Elementary school through college.
Through my experience as a tutor, I have developed a unique style of teaching, which students (and my peers) love. First, I tailor the learning experience to each student. I like to determine if the student is a visual, auditory, or tactile learner in order to help them learn in the most efficient way possible. Second, we will dig to the root of the misunderstanding or challenging material in order to locate the source of confusion. This is often a misunderstanding stemming from the basic concepts. While it might sound tedious and superfluous, many of the more complex topics are easily understood from the basics. Finally, it is important to inspire passion and a desire to learn in each student. I do this by transferring my own passion for learning and by applying the material to real life problems.
Although I am relatively young for the average tutor, my age allows me to connect with students along avenues that are often closed to teachers and parents. I enjoy getting to know each and every student and forming a relationship with them. This allows me to more effectively motivate and inspire them to achieve their goals.
My interests include: playing soccer, hiking, camping, swimming
, playing water polo
, biking, running, surfing, reading
, and woodworking.
I am happy to meet on USC campus in a study room, at a coffee house, or at your home (as long as there are no distractions).
Feel free to reach out to me for more details and I look forward to helping you succeed in your endeavors!
