My name is Eric and I am currently a student at Columbia University. I am currently tutoring four students, through a local company, and I am hoping to help more students in the near future. Through this company I work with elementary and middle school students in math
. I have always gotten high reviews and marks from the students and parents I have helped, which is why in a short time I have gone from having one student to three. Currently I am looking to add more students and I know that I am willing to offer discounts for an initial appointment with a student in order to help gain the trust of both the student and the parents.
I’ve included some other parts of my background that may help you understand why I believe I would be a very valuable tutor for students who are either struggling to catch up in math, or those who have a unique interest in the area that they would look to cultivate at a more advanced paced than they are able to just through their courses. Either way, I always think that math is a fun and interesting subject that can be applied to almost any interest a student has, making it easier to help them understand the value, intrigue and importance of math.
- I scored a 770 on the math section of my SAT
I and a 780 on my math SAT II
- I have taken courses up through, and including, Calculus
II at Columbia
- I currently have three students I work with, never having had any family cancel my services and even recommendations from families that have led me to get three students from just one in two months at my tutoring company
- I am able to bring a computer
to use, along with several mathematical programs on my computer at various levels of sophistication, to help students understand how fun and interesting learning math can be.
- I transferred to Columbia from Duke University, where for a year I worked as a student manager on the basketball
team. I have always loved the game of basketball and it’s something I enjoy teaching and playing.

So I’ve been asked a number of times, both through WyzAnt polls and by friends, why I tutor students in math through WyzAnt and a local company. The answer is that it’s the perfect thing for me right now. I’m currently a student at Columbia with very limited
income and so making money is important to me, but more importantly it’s something that I love doing! I love seeing students and that...
