University of Florida (Agricultural and Biological Engineering)
Georgia Institute of Technology (Master's)
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!

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!
Erskine tutored me in Honors Pre-Calculus for several months in my second semester of senior year. I was struggling to maintain passing grades, and, as I saw it, I had to seek outside help if I was going to do well. I can gladly look back and say that getting Erskine as a tutor was one of my smartest decisions. With his help, I raised my grade a full letter from a middling D to a high C. Erskine has an effective style of engaging you in the content that you're learning and making the subject at the very least interesting. That was my big problem, I could not wrap my head around the material. Erskine helped me to finally understand it. So, if you're in need of a good math tutor, you need not look further. Also, thanks Erskine!
Erskine is very good at explaining concepts in a way that relates to the lesson. I am a college statistics student currently taking an intro to statistics class. I will be using Erskine when i take the main statistics class. After the lesson i could do the work on my own which is a plus. However i will always come to Erskine to study for big tests/ finals.
Erskine is very patient and works extremely well with my son. When Erskine started tutoring my son he had a 49% in Algebra I. Now after a few months he has a 90% and it would be higher if not for the fact that my son misses out on "on time quizzes" when he is tardy and also misses points for failing to bring his book to class. I can't say enough good things about Erskine.
Erskine has been great! He takes the time to discuss progress, strategies, etc. with my wife and I at the end of each session. More impressive, is that he sends our son texts throughout the week as reminders or to check on test results! That, to me, is the extra effort we appreciate!
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.
