I am a Physics M.S. graduate from CSULB with a B.S. in Physics from UCLA! I have experience TAing college level physics and astronomy and am therefore very comfortable teaching and tutoring physics (middle school to introductory college level)! I have also worked as a tutor for a company in Long Beach in the following subjects: math (elementary, algebra 1 and 2, geometry, math analysis, trigonometry, and calculus); chemistry (high school, honors, AP); biology (high school, honors, AP); and...
I am a Physics M.S. graduate from CSULB with a B.S. in Physics from UCLA! I have experience TAing college level physics and astronomy and am therefore very comfortable teaching and tutoring physics (middle school to introductory college level)! I have also worked as a tutor for a company in Long Beach in the following subjects: math (elementary, algebra 1 and 2, geometry, math analysis, trigonometry, and calculus); chemistry (high school, honors, AP); biology (high school, honors, AP); and English reading and writing. I have experience creating individualized lesson plans for students tailored to their specific needs. I am also fluent in Spanish speaking, reading and writing.
What makes me an effective tutor is my genuine enthusiasm for "difficult" subjects. I am able to show you tricks and techniques to remember math formulas and identities that will help you tackle any problem. Furthermore, I am patient am encouraging because I remember how difficult it was for me to understand math and physics concepts when I was first learning them. I have received great feedback from former students! I love teaching and tutoring and would love to help you achieve that higher grade you've been working so hard for!
Erika's kind, clear, confidence turned us around!
My daughter came home from school earlier this week very frustrated and at wits end with math - this has been going on for over a year and none of my suggestions seem to help. But Erika turned us around! After the tutoring session today, my daughter came home feeling excited about math and looking forward to school! I know my daughter is smart enough to do the work, but she has not felt that way herself, which is most important. I understand that we all learn in different ways and sometimes we get teachers who do not teach in a way we can easily understand (some people are more visual, some more auditory, some kinesthetic, etc.). I want more than anything for my daughter to find ease in understanding, but she has not felt solid in math or pre-algebra at school, and this semester she fell behind 5 lessons. It has affected her confidence and happiness, which has made it harder and harder for her to speak up and ask questions in class. In one session with Erika, she is understanding the work and feeling ready for her next math class! She is also more than half-way to being completely caught up with her work! The best part is that she is feeling confident that she CAN learn the new math concepts. It's great to feel my daughter's excitement about learning as she looks forward to meeting with Erika again later this week. There is a great sense of relief and accomplishment with my daughter today - she is happy, and the feeling is contagious! Thank you Erika!H, 1 lesson with Erika

Thanks Erika! Brandon feels that his time with you is very helpful. He said that you explain everything very well and he feels like he’s understanding. Thank you!Christy, 14 lessons with Erika
Very patient and knowledgeable
Erika was great with my son, who was very nervous about going to a tutor for the first time. She really understand pre-calculus, and was able to walk him through the problems and explain what steps needed to be taken and why. I highly recommend her services!Rex, 4 lessons with Erika
Very good tutor
Erika, was very patient and worked around my son's schedule. She had problems already done before the appointed time and was very enthusiastic. We are definitely going to use her again!Adam, 1 lesson with Erika
Clarify distance if scheduling in Newport Beach.
We contacted Erika to set up regular tutoring times for my daughter who needed some help with an Algebra 2 class. The first meeting Erika was close to 30 minutes late. I understood and understood it was not easy to find the house on the peninsula after parking on the street. The next meeting I sent a message to confirm and received a reply that she needed to cancel. Good thing I sent the message and was able to get another tutor that evening. Today I received a message in the afternoon stating she could not tutor my daughter because we were too far from Long Beach. I did reply that I felt she was unprofessional and should have known that from the beginning when reviewing her schedule. After rescheduling, receiving cancellations and ultimately receiving a reply that "I don't even know her" I felt I should write an honest review. My daughter liked Erika and I am sure she could be a wonderful tutor for someone not too out of the way. Be sure you clarify the distance and time you are needing before booking.Kristy, 1 lesson with Erika
