About Eric

I've been teaching and tutoring at the college and high school levels for over twelve years now. Shortly after graduating college, I worked as a volunteer ESL, English, and world history teacher for a school in Belize, Central America. After that I entered a graduate program in history where, in addition to leading several college history courses, I supplemented my income by tutoring students in history, English, SAT, ACT, and general paper proofreading. I earned my PhD in American history from the University of Minnesota in 2012, graduating with honors. I currently reside in Claremont, teaching at one of the Claremont colleges and tutoring students in the area. Teaching has always been a great passion of mine, which is why I continue to tutor on the side.

I have worked with students of all levels over the years, from the Ivy League to local community colleges. Regarding specific tests, I have seven years experience teaching AP U.S. history, AP Euro history, and am an official APUSH Grader. I also have three years of experience tutoring the English and reading sections of the ACT and SAT, the TOEFL exam, and AP Language & Literature.

A final specialty of mine is college writing, and I have helped dozens of people draft and revise high school and college-level papers. I also have experience with college admissions, and have helped many with admissions essays (for both undergraduate and graduate programs), as well as internship and award applications.

My favorite part of this work is helping students succeed. As a professional teacher, it's really important to me that you leave our lessons knowing more than when you entered. Thus I don't charge students if they are not completely satisfied with my instruction.

I have an office in the Claremont village where I hold most of my tutoring sessions, but I am also willing to drive to another location if that works better for the student.

Thanks for reading, and I hope to hear from you soon!

Excellent, knowledgeable, highly recommend — He is VERY knowlegeable and enjoys teaching. I've had tutors for my daughter for years and this tutor, Eric, is the BEST tutor my daughter has had. Highly recommend! Tutors like him with his experience cost way more. Glad we found him here and we will continue to get tutoring with Eric. ...
