About Erskine

I am currently working as an Environmental Engineer for the Environmental Protection Agency in San Francisco. I graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Agricultural and Biological Engineering from the University of Florida (GO GATORS) as well as a Master of Science in Bioengineering from Georgia Institute of Technology (GO YELLOW JACKETS). Unlike many engineers, I actually have a sense of humor and so I make learning fun and interesting. Also, I pay close attention to details and so a nonchalant "oh I got it" will not sneak by me! If I can help you understand the why, then you can spend less time memorizing! Algebra I & II, Geometry, Pre-Calculus, Trigonometry, General Chemistry, Biology are just a few subjects that I am prepared to help you navigate to achieve your goal!

Approved subjects

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.

A great coach! — Erskine was able to demonstrate more than one method to calculate math problems and would show different ways until you found one that made sense for you. He was very patient and had a great sense of humor too, which made a stressful subject much easier and helped build the student's self confidence in the subject. Very good tutor! ...
