About Erick

I am an alumni of Swarthmore College Class of 2015, with my B.A in Biology and Ancient History. I am currently working at Georgia Institute of Technology in the lab of Annalise Paaby, who studies genetic variation and evolution in the model system C. elegans.

I love to tutor because I enjoy helping others to learn in subjects that I have a strong passion for such as biology, classics, Latin, and Greek. Education is a powerful tool, and sometimes we need extra help to reach our greatest potential. I love helping others actualize their potential and go on to become amazing scholars and academics. Getting through high school and into college is a big task, and I like to make sure that anyone I tutor gets the time and attention they need to pass their classes, the SATs, and anything else they need to get done.

I have helped students understand and tackle biology concepts and inspired creative thinking and problem solving skills to handle biology related questions. I worked with freshmen and sophomores, as well as students my own age, to handle class work and problem sets that proved to be challenging our basic understanding of the class.

I have been studying the classics and classical languages since middle school. I worked as a Latin tutor for my on-campus job helping first-year Latin and Greek students to master the vocabulary, grammar, and syntax of these ancient languages. I have also spent some time outside of job as a Research Technician in genetics and evolution laboratory at Georgia Tech to tutor Latin to high school students looking to pass their class.

I have been studying the classics and ancient history since I was 13 years old. My major at Swarthmore in Ancient History required me to take several ancient history courses, where we studied primary and secondary sources to understand the political, social, economic, and cultural trends in Greece and Italy from the 9th century B.C to the 5th century A.D

I have had years of tutoring experience in high school, college, and my post-undergraduate life. Every student is different and requires different methods in order for them to learn and understand the material. I work hard to think up the best possible way for each student to master the subject. I encourage you to contact me because I am a laid-back, sociable, and fun tutor who give you the help you need!

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.

Biology

I am currently working at Georgia Tech in Biology research lab after graduating from Swarthmore College with my degree in Biology. I have tutored my friends at school for the biology classes at all levels.

Excellent and knowledgeable

Erick knows Chemistry so well that he could easily come up with real life examples that helped my son understand and visualize the information.
