Hi! My name is Eric, and my love of teaching comes from the happiness that I get when I am able to push myself to improve and achieve my full potential. This is not solely a personal pleasure as I also love to see my students growing and thriving!

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 at USC.

I graduated on the Presidents Honor Roll and I have always excelled in school. 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 at my high school.

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.

My ideal tutoring location is on campus in a study room or at a coffee house, however, I can also travel within a 5 mile radius from USC (as long as there are minimal distractions!).

Feel free to reach out to me for more details and I look forward to helping you succeed in your endeavors!

Chemical Engineering

I am a Senior Chemical Engineering student at Rice University. I am on the President's Honor Roll and have a GPA of 3.73. I am graduating in May and pursuing a Masters degree. I have had three chemical engineering internships through which I have gained experiences in the field. I have taken rigorous chemical engineering courses for the past 4 years and am therefore prepared to tutor in the subject.

Elementary (K-6th)

I worked at Camp Galileo and Camp Decathalon in the Bay Area of California for multiple summers. I was a counselor in charge of a 6-15 person group of elementary school kids. We participated in activities including learning Math and Science, solving mysteries, and playing sports.

I worked on a daily basis with elementary school kids and grew very fond of them. I look forward to getting a chance to tutor them in the future!

Soccer

I have the national "E" coaching license. This involves an 18 hour course which covers the principles of coaching. I have also coached two middle school teams. I play on the Rice University club team as well as the intramural teams and have been playing soccer all of my life. I am young and athletic so it is easier for me to connect with my students.

Education

Rice University (Chemical Engineering)

My high school son has gone from "I do not want or need a tutor" to "yes, I want a tutor" Eric had a very difficult task in my high school son who had been extremely reluctant to accept the help of a tutor to get caught up on his homework. Eric took the time to understand the situation from me & then contacted my son on his own to empathize, encourage him & build a rapport. I feel no other tutor would have done that. And it worked - he got my son to attend the 1st session which I had ...
