About Erica

I've been tutoring teens and college students for six years, and understand how to translate complex information into easy to understand tidbits.

Together, we'll cut through all the complicated lingo, and talk about math and science concepts in a relatable way. I help students make standout study guides, and provide helpful memorization tips to help you ace the test.

School and academics is something that's always come easy to me, and I absolutely love spreading my passion and enthusiasm for learning. I work hard to give my students the confidence that they, too, can succeed. There's nothing better than seeing the light bulb go off in a student's head when they finally understand a concept, or the look of pride on their face when they get a good grade on a test they studied so hard for.

My goal is to help you learn how to study and improve your understanding of the subject you are struggling with. Working one on one with a private tutor is the best way to accomplish this goal.

I have tutored many junior high and high school students at Windward, Wildwood, Archer, and Pali High, in math and science. My expertise is Pre-Algebra, Algebra 1, Algebra 2, Biology, Physiology, Psychology, and Nutrition. I also work as a Registered Dietitian, and have my Masters Degree in Nutritional Science.

My unique background has given me an excellent understanding of how the math and science concepts build on one another. I help students connect the dots and understand the "language of math" and the key concepts of biology/physiology. Most students I work with see a full letter grade improvement while working together.
