Hello! My name is Eric, and I hold a Bachelor's degree in Mathematics and Cognitive Science from the University of California - San Diego. I began tutoring math in high school, volunteering to assist an Algebra 1 class for 4 hours per week. Today I have hundreds of hours of experience, with the majority in Algebra and Statistics, and I would be comfortable well into college math.

During the learning process, small knowledge gaps from past courses tend to reappear as roadblocks down the line. By identifying and correcting these problems, I help students become effective independent learners for both current and future courses. I also encourage conceptual reasoning rather than memorization, because reasoning skills help the student to improve in all subjects.

Excellent Tutor!! — Eric has a masterful level of knowledge paired with an articulate and succinct method for translating complex concepts, which combine to make him an excellent tutor!
