Hi guys! My name is Erik and I am dedicated to helping your child read, write and speak with proficiency and confidence. I graduated Magna Cum Laude with a degree in English Literature and Language from Cal Poly Pomona. While in college, I also volunteered at the University Writing Center to help other students with their writing and comprehension skills. Since college, I have worked as an editor for a national publishing house and currently work in arts administration. I have also had a story published in a literary magazine, and am currently in the process of developing two plays.

I believe that any student can excel as long as they are given the tools that give them the confidence to pragmatically approach English and writing in a sensible manner. Language is about trust, and that trust is a two-way relationship between your own abilities and the rules of grammar, syntax and spelling. After working with me, your child will believe that they can meet any standard their teacher sets and than surpass it. Contact me today and let me help!

If you would like any more information about myself or would like to schedule an appointment, feel free to contact me. I am more than happy to speak with any potential students and look forward to hopefully working with you.

Best English teacher

Mr. Erik is a very gifted teacher. He tutored my son for improving his reading and writing. He is very consistent, thorough and builds up on the previous lessons. He definitely boosted my sons skills and confidence. My son liked the way Erik taught and could put it into practice. It was a pleasure working with him.

Phenomenal English teacher

Erik helped teach me how to write better graduate school admission essays. He was very patient and always willing to work with my schedule. I highly recommend using Erik for your tutoring needs. He goes above and beyond for his clients and instills creativity for writing.

A great help!

Erik is fantastic at pinpointing problem areas and helping the student recognize how to identify the problem as well. Then he helps them develop strategies to fix the problem. Very patient and non-intimidating but effective.

Determined to make students learn.

Erik brings a depth of knowledge to students. We had him as a writing instructor. Erik came prepared for each session with materials that were customized to each one of my children. Erik was up for any challenge and proved to be both flexible and committed. I appreciated the way he remained firm when I told him that the homework was too hard. He did not give in to my demand to water down the homework but he said that my son could do it and explained why the exercise would help my son learn an important concept.

Help for RICA

Erik has a lot of helpful information and background knowledge of the essay portion of the RICA exam. He gave me a short essay to write and on our next session he is going to go over my response and give me some tips on my writing and to tell my what graders are looking for.

Definitely knowledgeable and able to reach my son

Garrett has ALWAYS struggled with his Language Arts' packets, and with Erik's help my son is finally understanding what is expected of him, and that he can do it. Thank you Erik. I look forward to seeing my son grow more confident in this subject through your tutelage.

Knowledgeable and Patient Tutor

Erik is currently helping my 11 year old son improve his communication skills and I am very pleased with all the insights Erik has provided in just 2 one-hour sessions we've had so far. Erik is very keen to detail and very profesional, my son is a little shy but Erik's friendly and creative personality has made that a none issue. Erik has also provided a lot of strategies and homework for us to perform in between our sessions and provided us benchmarks to track my son's progress. My husband and I believe Erik's help is one of our best investments towards our son's progress this summer. In our opinion, Erik's fee is very reasonable and well worth it for the wealth of knowledge he posseses.
