About Eric

Hi! my name is Eric. I hold a bachelor's degree in Biochemistry/Cell Biology from the University of California, San Diego (UCSD). Upon graduation, I received the academic honor of Summa Cum Laude for completing my coursework with a GPA of 3.97, and I was also conferred Distinction by the UCSD department of Biology. Currently, I am in my gap year prior to starting medical school and I wish to spend my time as of now helping high school and college students with science. I have always been fascinated with chemistry and biology, and I wish to instill that same interest in everyone I work with!

In addition to recently being a student myself, I have a wealth of experience teaching. I am currently employed as a high school teacher, and I have also worked as a teaching assistant for various upper division science courses at my university. In addition, I have tutored all levels of chemistry and biology for over three years.

If you are ready to see significant results on your next exam, please feel free to contact me at any time!

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

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.

Biochemistry

I have a broad background in biochemistry. Upon earning my degree in Biochemistry/Cell biology, I have taken and excelled in metabolic biochemistry, structural biochemistry, and biochemical techniques laboratory, earning A+'s in each course. This knowledge was further reinforced for me upon taking the MCAT, and to date, I have been tutoring this subject for over 2 years.

Biology

I taken and earned A+'s in many lower and upper division biology courses at UCSD, along with the associated labs. These include: physiology, molecular biology, cell biology, genetics, neurobiology, metabolic biochemistry, and many more. I have also worked as a TA for several of these upper division courses.

I also scored 97th percentile on the MCAT for the biological sciences section.

I have been tutoring all levels and types of biology for over 3 years, to date.

Chemistry

I have taken and earned A+'s in 4 different courses in general/inorganic chemistry, along with the associated labs. I also scored in the 95th percentile on the physical sciences section on the MCAT. I have been tutoring all levels of chemistry (general/organic/biochem) for over three years. I also have experience as a teaching assistant for a general chemistry laboratory and lecture course.

Organic Chemistry

This is actually my favorite topic to tutor! I have taken and earned A+'s in 3 organic chemistry courses, with the associated labs in university. I have also been tutoring organic chemistry for students from UCSD, SDSU, USD, and community colleges for over two years.

Physiology

I have competed many classes in college within this subject, mostly because I find physiology to be a very fascinating science. I have taken physiology l, ll, nutrition,and exercise physiology, along with the associated lab, earning A+'s in every course. I have also taken a course in cellular neurobiology, earning an A+, and subsequently I worked as a teaching assistant for that course the following academic year. I have been tutoring physiology for over two years now, and love seeing how students are able to substantially raise their grades after meeting with me on a regular basis.

Eric help my daughter with her 10th grade chemistry. It was near the end of the school year and my daughter has been doing well, but wanted a tutor to help going into the final weeks of school and finals. Eric worked within our busy schedule to accommodate us and help my daughter on the review her past exams, quizzes, and homework assignments to make sure she had a strong foundation going in her
