That teacher that you can't quite understand? The book that doesn't tell you enough of what you need to solve a problem? That's not me. I've been there. Late nights, coffee, office hours, the works. I was a student in the math program struggling to get my bachelor's degree. Then, I spent two more years going for my master's, meaning even longer nights, more coffee, and needing my own whiteboard. I was also a tutor for five years, and for years afterward my clients came to me to either thank...

Don't worry if you feel like you have a stupid question or you feel that you won't be good enough or this or that. I'm patient, and I take my time because learning is a process. I know you're willing to make the effort to learn, and I'm willing to put in the time and energy to help out in any way that I can. I love to help someone out whenever I'm able, and I love seeing the smile on a person's face when that fateful light bulb comes on.
I've had clients dealing with everything from intermediate math to trigonometry to Calculus 3. Yes, I've had almost all of my experience in a college/university setting, however I also have experience with high school students as well. If you're worried about a big test like the SAT or ACT, never fear, I've led workshops dealing with that level of material. Don't worry or say to yourself "I'll never get it" or "this is too hard," I'll make sure that by the time we're finished, you'll be saying to yourself that it's a lot easier than you thought.
My kids were thoroughly impressed with Erik's approach. Both raved about his patience and overall understanding of how tough it can be to grasp math concepts. Erik provided down to earth tutoring on a level that they could easily understand. Both are looking forward to their next tutoring session. What more can a parent ask for? Great job Erik!!!Frank , 2 lessons with ErikTutor responded:
It was great to tutor them. They both always seemed to grasp the material, but just needed some little bits of help with the details. Hopefully I get to tutor them again! :)
Great session! My son feels more confident!
My son was struggling with understanding when to use the formulas. Erik was able to really breakdown and explain the instances in which they should be used. He really broke it down in a way that my son understood.Tisha, 1 lesson with ErikTutor responded:
I'm very glad I was able to help out. :) Sometimes formula use can be tricky, and showing the best places to use them can make the rest of the assignment a breeze.
Erik knew how to answer all of my questions, and he worked to teach me step by step. I was able to go home and complete the assignment without his direct help.Nicole, 7 lessons with Erik
Helped me pinpoint my weak areas and also broke down problems to their root so that I would understand better. I was very impressed at how well he knew the material, made me at ease knowing that.Jaleel, 1 lesson with Erik

Knowledgeable and easy to understand
Erik is very easy to talk to and understand. My son was comfortable the first time he met him which made it easier for him to open and learn from Erik Erik is very knowledgeable about geometry and is confident in helping my son understand it as wellSonja, 15 lessons with Erik
Online Business Statistics
I’m in college and was taking Business Statistics online. I was having a hard time grasping the material and my grades were slipping, causing me a lot of stress. I decided to get a tutor and started working with Erik. He is very knowledgeable, patient and explains the information well. We met two times a week and my grades began to improve. I felt more confident with the course and I passed the class!Lauren, 11 lessons with Erik
Great Tutor. Highly recommend!
I was looking for a tutor to help my son in geometry, and randomly chose Erik. I could not have made a better choice. Erik is very kind, patient, and willing to help a student get to the level where he/she needs to be. He is very dependable and flexible, and most of all very knowledgeable of geometry and algebra II. My son, who was reluctant to being tutored initially, told me that he enjoys Erik's tutoring, because he makes him think, talks to him instead of at him, and explains geometry concepts so much easier than his teachers. My son's grade in geometry has increased dramatically.Tara, 26 lessons with ErikTutor responded:
It's always good to help ease a student in the process. I was like that myself for a while, I thought I didn't need help and was a bit embarrassed about seeing a tutor. I try to be what a good tutor should. Get them to think and learn instead of just solving the problems, talk to the student, but more importantly, listen to the student to see where they are, because they'll let you know how best to work with them and how to explain things. Glad I could be so much of a help!
Excellent tutor and very patient
Erik was very knowledgeable of Statistics and explained the process that was very easy to comprehend. In just the short time we tutored I gained a lot of understanding on how to analyze and interpret my analysis.Myra, 3 lessons with ErikTutor responded:
I try to break things down as best as I can, because I know some of the processes, especially for Statistics, can be a bit difficult. I'm glad I could help you understand everything!
Good math tutor. Knowledgeable and easygoing.
I didn't have many lessons with Erik, but from the time I spent with him and the communications we had, I found that he is a friendly, patient and knowledgeable math tutor. Given the distance between our cities, Erik tried to be as accommodating with travel arrangements as possible. I came to Erik with questions and concerns regarding the ACT; we reviewed a practice exam and he was able to ease my worries about the examination process by recounting his own experience with the test. I would recommend Erik to anyone in the Jacksonville area seeking a math tutor.Adriel, 1 lesson with ErikTutor responded:
I always appreciate dedication, be it for the work itself or seeking out help. I also love giving my perspective on tests and what to look for to sort of bring things into perspective. I hope all went well, but I'm sure you aced it. :)
