Emory University (Chemistry)
Hi! My name is Eric. I am a high school chemistry teacher who loves teaching math and science!
I received my Bachelor's degree in Chemistry from Emory University and my Master's in Philosophy at Louisiana State University. I am now teaching high school science. For more than the past five years now I have been tutoring a wide range of subjects, from math and science, to reading and writing, as well as SAT prep. Over the past two years specifically I have had the chance to help more and more students grow and reach their academic goals.
My goal is to take students from feeling overwhelmed by what seems to be complicated material to feeling in control of their studies. This usually means that I work with my students for half a year to a full year of school. My goal is not to keep students for two or three or more years; it is to get students back in command of their own education--for them to be self-sufficient learners.
In order to accomplish this I usually have my students begin with one or two sessions per week. As the student gets more confident, we will decrease meetings to once a week or once every other week. At the end of the first semester we can reassess our plan for the upcoming semester.
I look forward to hearing from you about sharing my expertise and enthusiasm for math and science. Hi! My name is Eric. I am a high school chemistry teacher who loves teaching math and science!

Eric was a great tutor. My son learned alot and got motivated to put more focus on the subjects he reviewed with Eric. My son is more confident now when he thinks about the chemistry tests. Eric was always on time and well mannered. I wont doubt calling Eric next school year if my son needs some help.
Eric tutored my 14-year-old son in Algebra for almost a year. He was able to explain things differently than his teacher so I feel my son benefited greatly in learning Algebra in different ways. He was very patient with him, very knowledgeable in the subject, and always left valuable feedback after each lesson. I would highly recommend him for anyone needing tutoring.
Eric has enhanced my knowledge and understanding of "Geometry." I was somewhat in a maze in regards to this subject but now I have gain a complete new outlook on this subject. I am understanding the concepts of how to apply the angles and degrees of types of congruence of segments and other geometric figures. Thanks Eric P.
Eric is able to take a very difficult topic and present it in a way that my son is able to understand. He went to class the following day and was able to answer questions and understood the material.
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 approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
