Rice University (Chemical Engineering)
Hi! My name is Eric, and my love of teaching comes from the happiness that I get when I am able to push myself and my students to improve and achieve our full potential. I love to see my students grow and thrive.
I just received my B.S. in Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering from Rice University in Houston and am currently working towards my M.S. in Mechanical Engineering at USC.
I graduated on the Presidents Honor Roll and I have always excelled in my courses. I received the AP Scholar award, became a member of the California Scholarship Federation, and received the scholarship athlete award. I have my soccer coaching license and have coached middle and high school teams. I gained tutoring experience as a math teaching assistant and as a private tutor for students ranging from Elementary school through college.
Through my experience as a tutor, I have developed a unique style of teaching, which students (and my peers) love. First, I tailor the learning experience to each student. I like to determine if the student is a visual, auditory, or tactile learner in order to help them learn in the most efficient way possible. Second, we will dig to the root of the misunderstanding or challenging material in order to locate the source of confusion. This is often a misunderstanding stemming from the basic concepts. While it might sound tedious and superfluous, many of the more complex topics are easily understood from the basics. Finally, it is important to inspire passion and a desire to learn in each student. I do this by transferring my own passion for learning and by applying the material to real life problems.
Although I am relatively young for the average tutor, my age allows me to connect with students along avenues that are often closed to teachers and parents. I enjoy getting to know each and every student and forming a relationship with them. This allows me to more effectively motivate and inspire them to achieve their goals.
My interests include: playing soccer, hiking, camping, swimming, playing water polo, biking, running, surfing, reading, and woodworking.
I am happy to meet on USC campus in a study room, at a coffee house, or at your home (as long as there are no distractions).
Feel free to reach out to me for more details and I look forward to helping you succeed in your endeavors! Hi!

Eric had a very difficult task in my high school son who had been extremely reluctant to accept the help of a tutor to get caught up on his homework. Eric took the time to understand the situation from me & then contacted my son on his own to empathize, encourage him & build a rapport. I feel no other tutor would have done that. And it worked - he got my son to attend the 1st session which I had despaired of - I wasn't going to force him. In fact, I told him point blank, "He doesn't want to go," & cancelled our 1st session. But Eric seemed to understand what he was going through & his call took him from "No it's a waste of time & money" to "He's cool, ok, I'll try it". From there Eric worked to maintain a rapport w/ him in person - besides working on the algebra. Eric has continued to respond to my feedback & requests & has made continuing efforts to keep my son motivated & GOING - main thing - so he will get & stay caught up. My son has gone from "I do not want or need a tutor" to "yes, I'll take one - it's a help" with Eric. As to the algebra itself my son says he is great with the subject matter & works efficiently with him to get the homework done & makes it interesting - he proposes algebra riddles to my son that he enjoys trying to solve & they have other interesting discussions about many topics to keep it from being boring. I am very grateful as I feel no one else could have overcome this mountain of resistance. He was quite intuitive in that regard.
Eric was a perfect fit for our son. He was patient, kind and encouraging to him. Just what he needed at a time when he has been struggling with his home-school work. He made smart look really fun and cool and inspired our son to want to do more. Our son struggles with focus, but Eric found a way to keep him on track and help him progress from moving at a snails pace to really picking up steam and gaining some self confidence along the way. We are super grateful that we got to work with this special tutor prior to his graduation and relocation. Wishing him all the best in all that he does!
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.
I am a Senior Chemical Engineering student at Rice University. I am on the President's Honor Roll and have a GPA of 3.73. I am graduating in May and pursuing a Masters degree. I have had three chemical engineering internships through which I have gained experiences in the field. I have taken rigorous chemical engineering courses for the past 4 years and am therefore prepared to tutor in the subject.
I worked at Camp Galileo and Camp Decathalon in the Bay Area of California for multiple summers. I was a counselor in charge of a 6-15 person group of elementary school kids. We participated in activities including learning Math and Science, solving mysteries, and playing sports.
I worked on a daily basis with elementary school kids and grew very fond of them. I look forward to getting a chance to tutor them in the future!
I have worked with elementary school kids for 8 years through tutoring and camp counseling. I often find that the most challenging part about tutoring younger students is motivating them and keeping them interested in the material. This is a challenge I have dealt with often and am confident in my ability to overcome it. I love making the subjects fun and engaging and I find it especially enjoyable with the younger age groups!
My degree is extremely math and science intensive and I have consistently been at the top of my class in my courses. Even this year, I am in an advanced math course called "Engineering Analytical Methods." This material is fresh in my mind and I love it.
When I was at Rice, in Houston, I tutored an 11th grader in Math. I found that because I graduated from high school only 5 years ago and our age gap was not huge, it was extremely easy for me to relate to him and therefore more easily explain the material in an accessible, clear, and concise manner.
I have the national "E" coaching license. This involves an 18 hour course which covers the principles of coaching. I have also coached two middle school teams. I play on the Rice University club team as well as the intramural teams and have been playing soccer all of my life. I am young and athletic so it is easier for me to connect with my students.
