“**So smart and amazing tutor**”

A bit about me:

I began tutoring math as a freshman in high school as I've always had a gift with numbers. I would mostly be called upon to help my classmates with homework, but as my reputation as a math tutor grew across campus I became the go-to guy for all grade levels.

I went to USC to study Biomedical Engineering, and

Background Check:
Passed

Eric is approved to conduct lessons through Wyzant Online. Wyzant Online allows students and tutors to work remotely via video, audio, and collaborative whiteboard tools. For more information about how online tutoring works, check out Wyzant Online.

If you’re interested in online lessons, message Eric to get started.

He taught me everything i should have learned in 2 weeks of my precalculus class all in 2 hours! he knows every trick there is to make math easier and is so good at explaining things, patient when you want him to go over something again. Just a great tutor!! highly recommend!

My son is very happy and satisfied with the tutoring of Eric, he ensures that my son understands what is explaining.

My son said Eric took the time to work the Pre-Calculus problems by showing him, then worked together and then had my son demonstrate the solution.

He has confidence on how to do the lesson now thanks to Eric's guidance.

Eric is very likable and got to business without delay. I recommend Eric C.'s tutoring skills.

He was great! Walked me through my take home midterm of absolute value, slope-intercept concept, expanding and factoring polynomials, etc.

My daughter studied Algebra 2 with Eric and she was able to understand parts of her lesson that were quite confusing before meeting with him , she said he is very knowledgable in math and had some great tips!

Erick was very knowledgeable on all the math work, he was patient with every problem, and showed me every step within the problem. I would highly recommend Erick.

I was struggling with Calculus 1 and Eric was able to clearly explain the concepts I was having trouble with. He is patient and able to explain solutions to problems in alternative ways if I don't at first understand. After a few tutoring sessions, I got a 94 on my next exam! I am still being tutored by Eric and have gone from thinking I might not pass the course to thinking I have a chance to ace it. I highly recommend him.

Approved subjects are in **bold**.

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.

Nobody ever truly mastered Algebra until they took Calculus.

What I have found over the years of teaching this subject is that Calculus is actually incredibly easy; it's the Algebra that gives students nightmares. Calc is nothing more than highly advanced Algebra with two powerful new operators introduced: the derivative and the integral. Most of the time these operators make algebraic expressions very difficult to manage, even though on their own they are generally easy to execute. When I teach this subject to my students I try to point out that a 10-step Calculus problem is usually 4 steps of prep, 1 step of Calculus, and 5 steps of cleaning up. Since everyone who has taken Calc knows Algebra, this approach tends to give them a lot more confidence in their abilities. When I teach Calculus I focus on showing students the most efficient way of tackling seemingly impossible problems with just a little bit of strategic algebraic manipulation. This makes those very messy problems clean up very nicely afterward.

If there were ever a course that drives the point home that "You must learn it the hard way in order to appreciate the easy way," it'd be Pre-Calculus. The Algebra involved in Pre-Calc is incredibly daunting, and when you're first introduced to limits (most importantly, a function's behavior at infinity), it'll likely blow your mind. This course will give you a full year to refine and polish your algebra skills to prep you for calculus, and I will be an incredible help for some of the confusing functions you'll come across. I'll also be able to show you why you're learning the subject at hand and how it'll apply when you jump into calculus as well.

Trigonometry is my favorite subject to teach, because as an engineer, I love being able to approach a problem from 3 or 4 different angles and arrive at the same conclusion. With Trig, you're able to do just that. If the definition of sine from a right triangle isn't useful for solving a problem, maybe the graph of the sine wave is; if that's not useful, maybe the unit circle will make life easier. Trig is essentially a gigantic toolbox for solving problems, but for many students it's incredibly disorganized and they don't realize when to use one tool or the other efficiently. Everyone knows that a large wrench can double as a hammer but it's not exactly an ideal tool for putting a nail in a wall, so it'll make the job harder than it needs to be. I like to teach this subject with a concept-based approach in order to limit the memorization required as much as possible, and leave students with a very organized toolbox.
