University of California, San Diego (Mathematics, Cognitive Science)
Hello! My name is Eric, and I hold a Bachelor's degree in Mathematics and Cognitive Science from the University of California - San Diego. I began tutoring math in high school, volunteering to assist an Algebra 1 class for 4 hours per week. Today I have hundreds of hours of experience, with the majority in Algebra and Statistics, and I would be comfortable well into college math.
During the learning process, small knowledge gaps from past courses tend to reappear as roadblocks down the line. By identifying and correcting these problems, I help students become effective independent learners for both current and future courses. I also encourage conceptual reasoning rather than memorization, because reasoning skills help the student to improve in all subjects. Hello!

Eric has a masterful level of knowledge paired with an articulate and succinct method for translating complex concepts, which combine to make him an excellent tutor! As an adult learner it can be challenging to grasp new material but Eric uses meaningful analogies and practical approaches that allow me to translate the information into concepts I can apply and retain. He is extremely patient and very easy to work with and I would recommend him to anyone (child or adult) struggling with math.
Eric helped our son with High School Pre-Calculus. Since the Pre-Calc teacher (San Diego Unified) refused to answer questions or provide any assistance to students outside the regular class period, it was a struggle for our son to fully understand the material, complete homework assignments, and to pass tests in class.
Eric effectively reinforced course concepts and explained details that were not made clear by the teacher. He helped our student gain the confidence necessary to overcome a hostile classroom environment and to perform well on tests. Eric was flexible and willing to supplement scheduled sessions with SAT prep when time permitted.
Eric exceeded our expectations. Thanks to Eric's skill as a tutor, our son's grades went from a C to an A and our stress level at home was reduced. On a recent SAT exam, our student felt much better prepared and was able to complete the exams and math scores improved 100 points. Although paying for a tutor was a consideration for us, it was well worth the expense. We are extremely pleased with the results and would highly recommend Eric.
He assisted me in preparation to my statistics final exam. His tutoring put me over the top and allowed me to get a terrific grade!
Eric helped us understand some key concepts needed to complete our first week of statistics. He is calm, collected, and insightful which eased some of the anxiety we had regarding this class.
Mr. Eric is a Stat and Math tutor.. I had him as a tutor for my whole semester.. I was struggling in my Stats college course so I needed a professional tutor to explain it for me. We met every week to solve problems and explain the chapter and we had a really good plan before each exam. He is a patient teacher and slowed down if he saw that I did not understand.. I recommend him for anyone seeking a real help and good grade.
Eric is a very great tutor who has a great knowledge of the math I have asked him to help me with. I'm a college student in my second year of studies and he has been a great factor in helping me pass the class. He is always on time or early and very humble about the way things are done. If you're looking for a nice, calm, understanding, and helpful tutor he would be the right one to choose.
Eric helped my son make corrections on two Algebra 2 exams that he got F's on. In less than 2 hours they reviewed them all, Eric taught my son a few helpful hints and my son was ready to re-take the tests. (Thankful for a gracious teacher that allows retakes). My son earned B's on both retakes. Eric was very knowledgeable and adapted quickly to the content without wasting any of my son's time. He has been quick to respond to emails and is very prompt. He also charges for the exact amount of time that he is sitting down and tutoring. He might be more expensive than others out there, but his knowledge and ability to instruct is well worth the money. And the two B's that replaced F's on tests put a smile on my son's face! Not to mention mine!
Eric was super accommodating with my son's high school Pre-calculus test that came up last minute. Very knowledgeable. Highly recommend.
Eric has been a complete life saver for me. He has been tutoring my son in algebra for about 2 months now and the progress my son has made is completely amazing. He has never gotten above a D- in the class and his grade since working with Eric is a solid C+. My son is so happy to finally be able to understand what is going on in the class. Thank you Eric! You are a GEM!!!
Our son said that his first lesson with Eric was very helpful and helped him with several questions on his test the next day.
Eric was very patient and helpful with our son's questions and math homework. We look forward to working with him again.
Eric was a great help throughout my College Statistics course. I met with him once a week and carried a 94% average going into my final exam. I have not received my exam or final grade yet but felt confident that I did well. I actually enjoyed this math class very much when others speak of Statistics as a bad dream. I owe the majority of it to Eric for helping me understanding the subject matter and feel confident when I took the exams. Highly recommended!
Eric is a very good tutor - easy to reach, flexible and conscientious. He didn't waste any time and was always prompt. Eric was able to help my son improve his understanding, confidence and ultimately his grade in Statistics. I highly recommend Eric as a tutor! Thanks!
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.
