About Eric


Bio

I’m Eric, a current “Top 10% Tutor” on Wyzant. I've been a professional educator most of my life, and have spent the last five years as a full-time tutor and mentor.

I hold a Ph.D. from the University of Minnesota, graduating with honors in 2012. I’m a former professor at both Macalester College and UCLA, and I continue to teach part time at Pitzer College. I’ve published articles in multiple professional humanities journals and given guest lectures at Harvard, Brown, and the University of...

I’m Eric, a current “Top 10% Tutor” on Wyzant. I've been a professional educator most of my life, and have spent the last five years as a full-time tutor and mentor.

I hold a Ph.D. from the University of Minnesota, graduating with honors in 2012. I’m a former professor at both Macalester College and UCLA, and I continue to teach part time at Pitzer College. I’ve published articles in multiple professional humanities journals and given guest lectures at Harvard, Brown, and the University of Pennsylvania. I know a lot about what skills are expected from elite students and how to teach those skills.

Tutoring students online is now my primary job, and I love it. After spending many years in many educational roles, I’ve found that my favorite kind of teaching is working with students one-on-one.
I take pride in that I often develop long-term relationships with my students, some of whom I tutor for years. When they have good news to share (like a college acceptance letter), I’m often one of the first people they text.

I don’t simply teach students skills. I teach them how to apply what they learn to their everyday environment and how to use their learning to become an informed, critical, and engaged member of society. This, I believe, is the essence of a good education (a positive side effect of which is that it helps students build excellent college application portfolios.)

I work with all levels of students, but specialize in those looking for challenging, college-prep level curriculum. Past students have gone on to places like Princeton, Dartmouth, UC Berkeley, USC, Amherst, and Barnard College, to name only a few.

I also consider myself a “full service” teacher. I only charge for the time we spend together online, but I’m also available daily to answer emails or texts about whatever questions you may have. This is a free service I provide to all my customers.

QUESTIONS? Feel free to message me to see some sample lesson plans or to setup a free phone consultation. I look forward to hearing from you!

I'm a college professor with a decade of experience prepping students for the ACT. I helped create the ACT curriculum at two separate testing centers in southern California and have helped numerous students score in the 99% (34+) range. You don't have to be a genius to get a top ACT score, but you do need to stay focused. Over the years, I've helped students study "smarter" for the ACT, showing them how the ACT constructs their questions and what specific skills they're testing with their specific question types. In my experience, knowing this often means the difference between a good and a great score. Before college, I myself struggled with the ACT before learning this information, so now I like to give back by teaching others what I've learned. I help people with the ACT English, ACT Reading, and ACT Essay sections. (Sorry, no math). I work with students of all levels and abilities and have developed tips and strategies for every kind of student. I also work with people on all kinds of timelines, ranging from a few days to several months. The ACT doesn't have to be a frustrating experience. Let me show you how that's possible!

Writing

Having trouble starting that paper? We've all been there! Writing rarely comes easy to anyone. Fortunately, I'm here to help. Over the years I've worked with hundreds of students upon all aspects of writing, from outlining to final edits and from basic essays to lengthy term papers. As a published author, I've learned to create powerful, well-organized narratives that resonate with diverse audiences, and these are skills I impart to students during our sessions. In addition, my background in teaching college writing classes gives me a unique skillset as an essay editor: not only do I have over a decade of professional writing experience within elite academic settings, I also have a decade of teaching those skills to students. Finally, I have special experience with helping students draft personal statements and other college essays. I’ve helped students apply to dozens of schools, from local community colleges to the Ivy League. I've also helped students finish a variety of graduate school, law school, medical school, and fellowship applications. Here, my history degree means I approach editing from a narrative perspective: I literally start by having students tell me stories about their lives. As we work together, I help students make these stories more vivid, cogent, and effective in order to demonstrate aspects of their character. Finally, we shape that story to fit the required essay prompts. This “story-first” method means that a student’s experiences and insights remain foregrounded, allowing for powerful narratives that command the prompt and result in focused, compelling essays.

I’m Eric, and I’ve been teaching and tutoring history subjects of all types for over a decade. If you’re looking to improve your grades or scores in AP US history, AP Euro, AP World, or any other history class, you’ve come to the right place. I hold a PhD in American history from the University of Minnesota, graduating with honors in 2012.

I've helped many students earn 5s on their APUSH exams. Beyond AP History, I help with everything from understanding basic American history timelines, to producing history research papers, to learning historiography and historiographical concepts. I have also helped students publish history essays for The Concord Review. Regardless of topic, I take special pride in my ability to explain historical concepts in ways that are easy to understand!

APUSH expert

Eric did a fantastic job tutoring my 11th grade daughter for the AP U.S. History exam. He identified the areas where she needed improvement (i.e., the areas that her AP class at her school fell short) and systematically helped her build her knowledge, skills, and confidence before the exam day. The fact that Eric is a college professor and has been a College Board grader of the APUSH exam for many years comes through in his tutoring lessons. He effortlessly integrates the historical content with exam strategy. During the final 2 weeks before the exam, Eric worked magic by helping my daughter become fully prepared and confident before exam day. We won’t receive her AP score for several weeks, but I believe there is a very high likelihood that she will score at least a 4 (and probably a 5); and, she couldn’t have done without Eric. If you are able to secure time with Eric, then you will be happy with your investment.

Brian, 10 lessons with Eric

Very knowledgeable tutor.

Eric is helping my daughter prepare for the APUSH test in May. He is very knowledgeable about the test and was quickly able to identify the areas she needs to work on. She now feels much more confident and prepared for the test. Eric is an excellent communicator and responds quickly any time we have messaged him with a question. I highly recommend him as a tutor!

Tania, 6 lessons with Eric

The most helpful and professional research mentor EVER!

Mr. Eric has guided me from slightly the beginning to the end of finishing a full-length paper about the Iran Hostage Crisis. Although I have been to several research programs for high school students, I could say that Mr. Eric had given me the most helpful and professional guidance on the paper. As a professor now as well, Mr. Eric can give me comments from a professional historian perspective. Meanwhile, as an experienced tutor for years, he is also able to give me advice on the general structure and language usage of the paper. In sum, I really appreciate his help on my paper and I can say we had together drafted and edited the paper with ALL techniques we possess. Thus, I HIGHLY recommend you ask for help from Mr. Eric if you are thinking about completing a professional history paper. (HE KNOWS A LOT ABOUT HISTORY PAPERS!)

Eric taught my daughter SAT English. He is knowledgeable, patient and accommodating in scheduling. I especially appreciate the advice he gave on the requirements for college application in addition to what he taught. His teach is effective. My daughter started with a relatively high starting point and it is difficult to improve further. My daughter prepared for about a month and half. She got a score well within the top 1%. Thank you so much, Erick!

The Best History Teacher

Eric is a fantastic teacher. My daughter decided to independently study and take the AP European History exam. With Eric’s help she was able to accomplish this goal and pass the AP test. Eric kept her motivated and on task when on many occasions she wanted to give up because it was just too much material to cover. I appreciate Eric’s honesty with her and gentle nudging to complete homework assignments on time in order to achieve her goal and pass the test. I recommend Eric if you are looking for the best History teacher – one that can help your child stretch their capacity to learn and retain material, and achieve stellar educational outcomes.

Great Tutor!

Eric's approach to teaching actually helped me develop my writing skills in a very short time. Through his "story-first” method I was able to write powerful and compelling essays that showcased my experiences. I would recommend Eric to any graduate or undergraduate student who is looking to improve their writing.
