About Eric


Bio

Hello, my name is Eric.

I've taught AP Calculus AB and BC and every AP Physics class (C, B, and 1 -both the Calculus and trig based courses) for 25 years. I have taught college classes and ONLINE ap physics and calculus classes also. In addition , I was selected as an AP calculus exam reader/grader by College Board. I am AP calculus and AP Physics certified by College Board and IB physics Certified by International Baccalaureate.

Hello, my name is Eric.

I've taught AP Calculus AB and BC and every AP Physics class (C, B, and 1 -both the Calculus and trig based courses) for 25 years. I have taught college classes and ONLINE ap physics and calculus classes also. In addition , I was selected as an AP calculus exam reader/grader by College Board. I am AP calculus and AP Physics certified by College Board and IB physics Certified by International Baccalaureate.

Here are a few of my other qualifications:

1. After high school, I spent 6 years in the Navy as a nuclear reactor operator aboard a nuclear submarine I then attended Georgia Tech, where I received a BS and MS in Mechanical Engineering graduating with highest honors.

2. While at Georgia Tech, I spent 2 years as a teaching assistant teaching heat transfer and thermodynamics. This was an experience I enjoyed so much that I eventually became a classroom teacher where i have taught most every math class and some chemistry - but mostly AP calculus and AP physics

3. My AP exam pass rate was 100% for the first 3 years. and every year since my class enrollment boomed to standing room only!

6. In fact, in it's "2007 report to the Nation," College Board recognized my AP Calculus class as "exemplary" and having the most students in the nation pass the AP calculus exam.

I can offer you and your student both the clear explanations of an experienced AP teacher and the expertise of an engineering professional. Students respond well to my humor and straight forward teaching style. In fact, on the website "ratemyteacher” I have the highest rating at my school where former students state "the best math teacher I have ever had in college or high school", and "The reason I became a physics major at Harvard."

I know choosing a tutor - with so many good ones to choose from - is tough. But since I actually teach AP Calculus and AP Physics (for 25+ years), I know the AP Physics and AP Calculus exam and class material inside and out. I have access to all of the AP tests and teacher resour

I have been teaching AP Calculus for 18 years. I also teach AP Physics regular and Advanced Placement which is Trig and CALCULUS based. My AP calculus class was ranked number one in the nation by College Board. My AP Physics class is also one of the best. I graduated from GA Tech where I received a Masters and BS in Mechanical Engineering. I graduated number three in my class. While in grad school at TECH, I taught Thermodynamics. Also, I was a Physics major at GA State where I earned a 4.0 GPA. Previously I was a reactor operator on a nuclear submarine in the Navy. So how can an engineer be a whiz at calculus? It turns out that every engineering calculation at Tech was a calculus problem! So needless to say, I am extremely experienced and more importantly, extremely good at teaching. I am funny and can explain the most complicated topics in a easy to understand manner. I hate to brag, but teaching Physics and Calculus is what I do for a living and having me tutor you is like having Michael Jordan come to your home to help you with basketball!

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

It was great class. Eric provided the intro to Kinematics and took the time to introduce the topic that made lot of sense. He derived the equations in a way that accelerates the interest in learning. Thank you Eric

Thanks I enjoyed working with you!

Knowledgeable and patient tutor.

Amazing tutor, I'd recommend Eric for anyone taking AP Physics. Eric has helped me tremendously on my recent quizzes and tests, he not only teaches the course material but also teaches students how to think about physics and how to study for tests. He's also very personable no matter your personality you'll like him.

Andy, 3 lessons with Eric
Tutor responded:

thanks so much! it was great working with you

Lucky that we found him!

My daughter had 2 lessons with Eric to prepare her for her AP Physics end of the quarter assessment. He is very knowledgeable with a lot of experience teaching but most of all he genuinely cares for my daughter to do well at her exam. We won’t look for another Physics tutor as long as we have Eric as a resource.

Tutor responded:

aww thanks so much. it is indeed a plaesure working with you

Excellent tutor

From my daughter's first lesson with Eric, he has already demonstrated that he is a talented and experienced teacher who cares about his students' learning. He patiently and clearly explained several AP Physics topics that she did not previously understand.

thanks so much I enjoy helping your daughter!

Awesome Tutor!

Eric is an excellent tutor. My son is struggling in AP Calculus AB and is super stressed. In just one session he has learned more during his session with Eric then he has in his regular class in school. In fact, he came home from school today telling me he completely understood the lesson because of last nights tutor session and was able to help other students in his class with the content Eric taught his last night. He’s already looking forward to his next session and has gained tremendous confidence in such a short time with Eric! We are very thankful!

wow thanks so much for the feedback, Your son is one of the coolest kids ever. Its easy to work with him :-)

Making AP Calculus fun!

Eric is a great tutor. My daughter loves working with him. She thinks she is not math person and didn’t want to take AP Calculus but she says he makes AP calculus fun, if that is possible. She has an A in the class and enjoys the class and math as a result.

Melissa, 15 lessons with Eric
Tutor responded:

hi thanks so much for the kind feedback. Not sure i should get all the credit; It's easy tutoring such a bright energetic dedicated student as your daughter!

Super helpful and funny!

Mr. Eric explained the basics of calculus to me on our first lesson, and we covered a lot, which was great because I hadn’t had any experience with calculus prior to that. He was very kind and helped me with math problems I was struggling with with really extensive answers.

Tutor responded:

thanks so much for your kind review. I enjoyed working with you :-)

Knowledgeable!

My daughter has been struggling with AP Calculus AB even with regular tutorial session with one of those brand name tutorial center. For the AP exam, we hire Eric to help. Eric is very knowledgeable with the AP exam and test strategy to use. He taught her how to categorize the types of questions quickly so that she knows which method to use. We are scheduling more sessions with Eric before the AP exam. Thank You Eric!

Tutor responded:

thank you thank you for your kind feedback. I enjoyed and was happy to help you prepare for the AP exam :-)

Excellent, highly recommend

AP Physics and Calculus BC. Eric is a great teacher and also has a great personality. Related well with my child and the one on one Zoom was very helpful, especially during the pandemic and the challenges of remote schooling. Grades improved a lot and I feel she received a good foundation for college courses. Thanks!
